Rules and Regulations – Bluesock Hostels

For all legal purposes and effects, the management of “Bluesock Hostels” would like to inform its guests of the following rules and regulations in order that we can provide the best experience:

Keys

At check-in, a key will be provided to each guest. At checkout, all keys must be returned without any damages that impair their use. If all keys are not returned, or if they are damaged, € 1.00 (one euro) will be charged from the deposit or charged directly for each missing/damaged key.

Deposit

When checking in, “Bluesock Hostels” reserves the right to request a deposit of between € 25,00 and € 50,00 per guest to guarantee any damages that may be caused during their stay.

At check-out, and once the absence of any damages likely to cause the deposit to be kept has been confirmed, the latter will be returned to the guest.

In the event that any damage caused to the premise is directly attributable to deliberate intent on the part of the guest, the amount required for compensation for the damage will be directly and automatically deducted from the value of the deposit, without prejudice to recourse to applicable legal procedures.

Noise

Out of courtesy, all guests are requested to minimize noise in common areas, especially corridors and areas near rooms.

No noise is permitted between 23:00 and 7:00 the next day (Decree-Law no. 9/2007, 17 January). If a guest persists in making noise after having been warned, the competent authorities will be called. Violation of these rules constitutes misconduct and may be sanctioned under applicable legal terms.

Smoking:

In accordance with the provisions of art. 4, no. 1, sub-heading p) of Law no. 63/2017, August 3, smoking is prohibited in the establishment.

Whenever there are infractions of this rule, any employee of the hostel must request that smokers abstain from smoking and, if the latter do not comply, the employee will call the administrative or police authorities, who will take appropriate measures.

The offence is punishable by a fine of 50 to 750 euros.

General Prohibitions:

Without prejudice to the above and the general rules on local accommodation, in the hostel facilities guests should not:

  1. Alter the layout of the rooms
  2. Leave rubbish in common and private spaces;
  3. Excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages inside the hostel;
  4. Eat or drink, except on floor – 1 (only drinks purchased on the premises).
  5. Behave in a way that may jeopardize the regular operation of the hostel or disrupt the quality of service to be provided to other guests.

If a guest behaves in a way that is prohibited under the provisions of the previous point, he or she will be required to pay compensation of between 50 and 150 euros, depending on the damage caused to the hostel.

The “Bluesock Hostels” reserves the right to debit the amount for the compensation through the guest’s credit card, the details of which shall be submitted upon check-in.

Penalties for improper conduct:

The management of the establishment reserves the right to be reimbursed and as such to penalize individuals/or groups in the event of confirming non-compliance with the hostel’s rules of operation and therefore loss of profits and damages caused, in accordance with the previous clauses.
