Staying in a hostal is an affordable option if you are on a budget. Hostals are cheaper than hotels and they offer you a room, usually with an en-suit bathroom, although sometimes the bathroom is shared, so always check when you are making the booking.
A hostal will have a reception and some have internet via a PC in the lobby. They also usually have various tourist information leaflets about local attractions for you to take away. The rule of thumb is that hostals are usually either 1 or 2 star.
Don't confuse a 'hostal' with a 'hostel'! A hostel is a youth hostel, where you'll find shared dormitories. A youth hostel is a place that students and travellers usually stay in. In a hostal you get your own room.
