inhospedable = inhospitalario.

La selva es inhóspita (it's quite difficult to live there, this is an uncomfortable place to live).

El dueño de ese hotel es inhospitalario / inhóspito con los extraños (he has a lack of hospitality)

Inhóspito is more used with things (places: jungle, desert, etc.) and inhospitalario is more used with people.

AHhhHhhhhhHhhhh.... thank you VERY much!! MUY helpful!!

So, hospiciano = huérfano?

Hospiciano = huérfano que ha vivido o vive en un hospicio. Not all the orphans live in an orphanage.

Anyway, hospiciano and hospicio are words a bit old-fashioned. You won't find them in common speech, but in novels surely (above all if you read Dickens in Spanish ). We say "orfelinato" or "orfanato" instead of "hospicio". Though there aren't orphanages here in Spain nowadays. All the children live in flats, with guardians (tutores ); that's much better for them .

A couple more related words:
  • hospital
  • hospice
probably also related:
  • host
  • hostess
  • hostler
  • hostel
maybe also related: (as antonyms?)
  • hostage
  • hostile
