OK, it’s our turn for what seems to be the obligatory corona virus post:
during the current COVID-19 crisis, The Funky Dodo Backpackers Hostel, Hopkins Village, Belize is getting hammered with cancellations and refunds. Our season is effectively over. Our low-season prices will begin today.
If you can — please re-schedule, don’t cancel.
Our cancellation policy is still in force (this is one example of what trip insurance is for), and if you cancel, you will lose your deposit.
If you postpone, we will happily waive the cancellation fee and apply your full deposit to the new booking.
If you do cancel, and are entitled to a refund, we beg for patience as we sort out our finances. We will process cancellations promptly, but it may take a day or two for the refund to hit your account.
The Funky Dodo Backpackers Hostel, Hopkins Village, Belize will not close, unless the government tells us to. We have made a commitment to our employees that they will not be laid off, and will still be paid. We remain open to anyone who needs a home during this time, at our low-season rates. We will, of course, continue to keep everything spotless and disinfected, just as we always have done, just maybe a little more so.
If you are “stuck” in country, and need a place to call home, The Funky Dodo Backpackers Hostel, Hopkins Village, Belize is here for you. If you need a place to self-quarantine, we have rooms available, and we will be happy to assist with shopping and the like.
This is going to be a rough time for all of us, especially those in the hospitality business. But, if we all pull together, we will weather this storm and come out the other side that much stronger.
Stay healthy and safe, everyone.
