The regulations required from you by this site are that you pay a deposit of 50% of the total of the amount of the cost of your stay. These deposits are debited from your bank account not at the time when you confirm your purchase on the site www.adveniat-paris.org but only after one of our operators have contacted our bank. If your payment has been refused by the Bank (credit card rejection), your reservation will not be confirmed and we will let you know through the e-mail address you have given us to contact you. 

You will need to pay the balance in euros when you arrive at the Youth Hostel Adveniat. Credit cards accepted for payments on this site and in the hostel are Visa and MasterCard. If you used a card that is not in your name, you must provide an authorization from the holder of the card.

We only accept payment in euros. This website takes no other fees on your transaction and no exchange fees. However, your bank or your credit card company may charge you a fee.


Policy for reservations and cancellations

For individuals (1 to 6 persons), Adveniat Youth Hostel accepts reservations only for a maximum of 5 consecutive nights. We cannot house you beyond 5 reserved nights unless there is space available at departure time. This limit does not apply to groups. 

To better serve you, group reservations (7 or more persons) cannot be made through our Internet site, but must be made by mail, email or telephone.

As for reservations, the Adveniat Youth Hostel offers an option valid for 7 days if the reservation is made more than 15 days in advance,  and one valid for two days, should the opposite occur. This option does not become a confirmed reservation until you send a down-payment of 50% of the total cost of the reserved stay for individuals and 25% for groups. If the down-payment is not received within 7 days of exercising this option (two days if one is less than 15 days from one’s stay), the option will be cancelled.

In the case of a cancellation of a reservation, we will be able to reimburse you all or part of the down-payment according to the following rules:

  • more than 60 days before the date of arrival, 100 % of the down-payment will be reimbursed,
  • between 30 and 60 days before the date of arrival, 50% of the down-payment will be reimbursed,
  • less than 30 days before the date of arrival, no reimbursement will be made

Adveniat Youth Hostel reserves the right to mix in one room members of two different groups. If a group decides to refuse this mixing together, it will have to pay for the beds which remain unoccupied.     

As for groups, room assignments of members of a group rest in the hands of Adveniat Youth Hostel. These assignments will be made known only upon arrival. 

If a group arrives with fewer members than announced at the time of the reservation, the group will be billed for the number of nights of the missing members.

If persons leave the hostel earlier than foreseen and therefore stay fewer nights than they had paid for, no reimbursement will be made. 

If one or more persons do not arrive on the date foreseen, their stay will be billed and the reservation cancelled.

The balance of one’s payment is due on arrival.
