These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
I was there when it was supposed to open and it was full and using tents. Inadequate facility for the number of people staying.
Hospitalero was great and there were tents already outside with mattresses, so I slept there - very comfortable! Kitchen has many facilities including a stove, so we cooked pasta for everyone:). Also a centrifuge was there to dry clothes. It gets competitive with the space, so you may feel safer booking ahead in Islares or something if you can’t arrive before it opens. But if you have a tent, just camp in the backyard!
Feels more like a shelter for homeless people...
This is the worst place on my 10 day Camino. Small, dirty, and smells very bad. 16 people in one room, too overcrowded. No laundry, limited shower room, bathroom basically in the hallway. Took all the effort to be there first as there only 16 beds, walked 27 km from Portugalete, arrived 5th and eventually gave up my place as I was leaving to the hotel in Islares because to live in this conditions is a disgrace. I really wanna see the person who wrote this was a nice place. I am sure there could be bed bags as the shits are not from usual rubber material. Stay away. Fox
Had phone and money stolen last night. Tracked phone to a local address—not taken be fellow pilgrims. But sorry to say taken by local people. Be very careful with belongings. But confused how local person could get into albergue in middle of night.
Got here at 3:45 and already full! Never had a problem with a bed before this, especially not so early in the day. Got a tent, or an offer of a mattress on the dining room floor after dinner.
If you don’t get a bed or tent, it may be a bit uncomfortable because you’re basically homeless until about 9pm when they clear the dining area and put down a mattress for you. Tiny fridge and basic cooking facilities. There’s a small market down the street if walking back into town doesn’t appeal to you.
This is a nice albergue with a very friendly hospitalero!
Above info all correct. A bit crowded on the Camino at the moment, got 5-6 single/double tents outside and were all occupied.
