Hostels and Budget Hotels

Everybody knows that Tenerife is home to some fabulous hotels. There are more five stars and fancy four stars than you can shake a stick at but what about cheaper accommodation for those on a budget? Until the last year or so, Tenerife has been a reliable cheap holiday from the UK. This year however, flights are extortionate and holiday apartment rentals are through the roof.

Are there still any good budget accommodation options on the Tenerife?

The answer is yes, absolutely there are still plenty of cheap hostels, hotels and holiday apartments to choose from whether you are travelling alone or with your family.  There are some great little hostels tucked away in Tenerife and guest houses that offer a comfortable place to rest and a more intimate experience than you might expect in a large five star. On the other hand, you might be surprised at the quality of some of the rooms you can rent for approximately €18 per night or less (including breakfast!).
