This Albergue had a sign in the door saying it is closed for the 2022 season. I stayed at pension Catamaran (it’s not a hostel). It was a good alternative to rest and let my blisters calm a bit. I stayed a few days.

This is a nice albergue with a very friendly hospitalero!

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.

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.

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.

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

Feels more like a shelter for homeless people.

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!

I was there when it was supposed to open and it was full and using tents. Inadequate facility for the number of people staying.
