          Hello, I have just booked a Deluxe double bedroom for me and my girlfriend from the 28th December to the 2nd January. We are very excited and looking forward to staying at your hostel. Can you please tell me whether you can arrange day trips for us to see lots of wildlife ? And is it possible to have a room on the top floor with a balcony ?
