Hostels are much more than cheap accommodation. If a hostel is that, then the hostel is doing it wrong or the traveler is doing it wrong. Hotels are energetic and full of life - not just party life. Hostels are places for socializing and meeting other interesting people from all around the world where everyone is instantly friends.
One example of a great hostel with a great vibe is Safestay in Warsaw - the Polish capital. Hostels around the world have very different flavors - the Fabrika Hostel in Tbilisi, Georgia is another example of a hipster hostel with a great vibe (it occupies an old factory). Although Fabrika Hostel is expensive with food and drink and doesn't tolerate food or drink from the outside.

Kitchen, Bar, and Restaurant
They have a bar serving some basic food options - like quesadillas, hummus with pickles, salads, and hamburgers.

- Drinks: Mostly Beer and Wine
They serve beer and wine and the wine they offer is much cheaper than what one finds in the restaurants outside the hostel in the rather expensive old city.
This is important as many hostels seek to make more money through their restaurant and bar more or less banning food and drink from outside. This is always bad for the vibe of the hostel where most people staying are penny-counting backpackers. So if one can afford the cost of one's, one can be confident that one can also still to one's budget when it comes to eating and drinking.
