Trying not to be pedantic here, just hoping you're not enrolling on the wrong thing..

TOEFL is Test of English as a Foreign Language (or something like that) and used for people who wish to go to university in the US and need to prove their English skills.

TEFL is Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and is the type of course that most teachers here have taken.

Apuravida, please don't think I'm picking on you, but I've seen TOEFL and TEFL confused a few times on this site today...

As for your question, no, sorry, I don't know, but I've just got myself the latest Lonely Planet for Spain that has lots and lots of accommodation in it. You could also try the Thorn Tree part of the Lonely Planet website for budget accommodation info.

Good luck,
Lozwich.
