A hostel is categorised as a hospitality accommodation activity. These facilities are usually closed-type facilities.

This category includes the offer of short-term accommodation on a daily or weekly basis, in furnished rooms, a joint cooking area or fully equipped kitchen. Hostels can be apartments in small multi-dwelling buildings or villages, in single apartment houses, huts, holiday houses etc. Additional services are minimal or there are none whatsoever.

The facility, where hospitality accommodation activity is implemented, must be appropriately marked, it must have appropriate operating permit, it must consider minimum spatial conditions and have appropriately regulated outdoor areas. 

No preliminary decision on the fulfilment of conditions for carrying out a hospitality activity is required, but all conditions must be fulfilled, which will be supervised by competent inspectorates.
