What is the difference between a hotel and a hostel?

Many international guests are familiar with the concept of travellers’ hostels, but inside Ghana or other West African countries, it may need explaining. In Ghana “hostels” normally refer to student accommodation or long-term accommodation. Agoo Hostel in Accra is different from the Ghanaian norm - it is a travellers’ hostel.
