I would not call it aggressive, but yes, that is the policy. They
will only enforce it, if there are problems, I think. Don't quote me
on this.

Jelou family!

Is this policy definitive? When was this decided?

The bar will be run by the hostel and while I can't see them making
a real profit off this, they will have to pay the bartenders and
they do have to charge for energy, cleaning, dishwashing and use of
their glass- and silverware. They might make a small "profit", but
given the price, I can't imagine that they'll get rich.

Yes, I am sure we can/will have free non-alcoholic drinks beyond
water, such as juice or tea and coffee etc.
