What is a hostal?

Some of our visitors may be confused by the word "hostal", which has a very specific meaning when applied to accommodation in Spain, and which possibly doesn't exist in other countries. A hostal is basically a guesthouse, or cheap hotel, and although we've used both words on this website, it shouldn't be confused with a conventional hostel, which is normally accommodation for backpackers, younger travellers, students or budget travellers, and is characterised by having shared rooms with several beds occupied by other guests who you may not know.

Unlike conventional hostels, in a hostal the rooms are all private, like a hotel, but hostales (the Spanish plural is often used in English as well) are usually cheaper and smaller than hotels, are often run by a family and usually occupy only part of a building, perhaps one or more floors, but normally not the entire property.

These days, hostales provide many of the services found at more expensive hotels, such as daily cleaning, a 24-hour reception, free wi-fi Internet, sheets and towels, air-conditioning, safe, flatscreen TV, laundry service, etc. but the specific services provided obviously depend on the particular hostal, which can be graded from 1 to three stars.

The very best hostales will often surpass the quality of some cheaper hotels, but are simply called hostal because of the size of the rooms, the lack of an elevator or because, as mentioned above, they don't occupy the entire building. In these cases, local regulation doesn't allow them to be classified as hotels, but what they lack in name they certainly make up for in value for money.

Many hostales also offer breakfast, and some even lunch and dinner, having both a cafeteria and restaurant. So for tourists on a budget, a good hostal is certainly a great option for accommodation in Madrid.
