Article 3 | Deposit

Upon check in Jorplace asks all its guests to secure a deposit. The deposit is to protect Jorplace financially against possible and unforeseen accidents, damage and lost Jorplace items during the stay of a guest. The deposit is in a number of forms, depending on the type of stay of the guest(s). An explanation of the various deposits is described below.

3.1 Individual deposit

All guests at Jorplace Beach Hostel must pay a personal, individual deposit. The deposit is 20 euros and must be paid in cash.

3.1.1 Why do I pay individual deposit?

The deposit protects Jorplace financially against possible and unforeseen accidents, damage and lost Jorplace items during the stay of a guest. Examples of when (a part of) the deposit can be withheld are as follows:

 

  • Key card: when you lose or damage the hotel’s key card.
  • Bed linen set: in case of incorrect use of, not using, not returning or damaging of bed linen.
  • House rules: when the house rules are not followed and respected.

3.1.2 Key card

Guests are given a key card upon check in that grants them access to the hostel and their room. This key card must be kept safe and in good order by the guest himself and returned undamaged during check out.

3.1.3 Bed linen

Jorplace works hard to keep its hostel spotless and hygiene is paramount. Jorplace expects the same attitude from her guests. To help guests keep Jorplace clean and hygienic, a three-piece bed linen set is included in the price of the stay. Jorplace requires guests to use this set, to take care of it and to hand it in at the reception after the stay.

Please note: the use of own sleeping bags, pillows, blankets and other items is not permitted. This is also due to the fact that Jorplace cannot guarantee or determine the hygiene of these items and strives to protect the other guests and the hostel as well as possible.

3.2 Group assurance

When guests come in a group, Jorplace asks the group to also collectively secure a deposit. This deposit is secured in the form of a reservation on a credit card that is linked to the main booker and from which possibly an amount can be deducted afterwards.

3.3 Damages and fines

The individual deposit often cover the small damages and lost goods, but when guests cause greater damage Jorplace always has the right to fine guests and / or to withhold the (individual and group) deposit.

Please note: Any form of damage to or misuse of Jorplace, the guests or the employees during the stay at Jorplace will result in an immediate departure and a penalty equal to the damage or replacement value.

3.3.1 In which situations can Jorplace hold the group insurance?

Jorplace has experienced that when large groups reside in the hostel, some situations can escalate. This causes unwanted disturbances and sometimes even damage in and to the hostel. In these situations, Jorplace is forced to withhold (part of) the group insurance to compensate for the damage.

The following types of damage will not be tolerated by Jorplace and will result in the immediate removal of a guest, the withholding of a deposit and possibly the imposition of an additional fine.

Type of damage or disruption Specifics
Damage to, in and around the Jorplace hostel Including rooms, corridors, toilets, showers, beds, mattresses, curtains, walls, the roof, the ceiling, washbasins, the kitchen, the bar and all common areas.
Fire extinguisher, hose and alarm The unnecessary or inappropriate use of the fire extinguisher or fire hose. Causing the alarm system or smoke alarm to go off unnecessarily. Warning: the fire alarm system is not a toy! Damage or unnecessary disruption of the fire alarm system will immediately lead to a fine of 500 euros and compensation for complaints from other guests. When the fire brigade arrives, the fine rises to 800 euros.
Consuming alcohol and smoking The forbidden consumption of alcohol or smoking in the rooms, corridors and other rooms of Jorplace.
Soiling Pollution caused by, for example, vomiting, urination, bleeding (etc.) in rooms, corridors and other rooms of Jorplace will result in a minimum fine of 300 euros.

Harassment Intimidating, disturbing or harassing other guests, crew or pets results in a minimum fine of 500 euros and direct deportation from Jorplace.

3.3.2 How much is a possible authorized amount of the group insurance?

In order to be able to compensate for damage financially, Jorplace has established a deposit scale. Note: of course the deposit is not withheld unless there is a form of damage. In this table, Jorplace indicates how the amounts correlate with the sizes of the groups.

Groep size (number of guests) Authorized amount (in euros)
6-15 300
16 -25 600

Unfortunately, Jorplace can not always remedy all the impurities in time. Jorplace underlines the fact that they are not responsible for any problems that arise due to the presence of impurities caused by the coming and going of guests.

Jorplace may only exercise this right if the nature and seriousness of the breaches of the house rules by the guest give sufficient cause, in the reasonable opinion of Jorplace.
