Hi Lorena and all
Interesting, but difficult question!
Depends on the definition in different parts of the world. A "hostal" in Spain is a small hotel, but in most countries it's simple (often shared) accommodation for young people.
We have used some really good Homestays, especially in Asia. I like the local knowledge and being part of a community. However, in Europe, we most often stay in hotels: we don't need luxurious facilities, but sometimes the privacy/anonymity can be relaxing.
Depends what we need at the time: for overnight stops on a long drive, all we want is a clean, comfortable bed and a shower, so 30-40 for the budget chains is enough.
For a city break, location is top priority, and a room comfortable enough to rest for a couple of hours before dinner.
My ideal for a relaxing stay is a small hotel right by a relatively quiet beach where i can eat "feet in the sand".
We used to do a lot of camping, but have never tried glamping.......can't really see the point, although sometime, I would like to camp in a desert without roughing it!
Budget plays a part for most people, I guess, especially in the early years of travel? Not really a big issue for me any more, but I do insist on good value. I have never paid as much as 100EU/GBP/USD for a room and still try to find somewhere for 50-60. How do you feel when you think you have paid too much for your room?
