Poor facility, beds too close together. Nearly sleeping with the person next to your bunk in some cases. Poor communication, showers are mixed sex and in same area as toilets and washing machines. Only frosted glass and you can basically see in when someone is showering. Not great if you need personal space or dignity... Nearly an inch of water in bathroom so nearly impossible to get dressed without getting your clothes wet. And it charges 15, should be a donation. Pure taking advantage of the fact there isn't another hostel for ages.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

Albergue is fairly basic. Blankets are very narrow so needed two. WiFi so weak could only connect sitting outside by the office. Got chilly at night. The nearest restaurant is Mexican but not really. Would never past muster in southwest US.
Next bar has other food but hamburgers were undercooked and not greatest of meat. Better stick to Spanish sandwiches.
So not terrible but not first choice.

This albergue is OK. Has every thing you need, but not very conveniant. If you need warm blanket-let the keeper know, because for the night they go away.

Increíble. Pensando que estaba cerrado, y pillandonos muy bien para la ruta, llamamos ayer por si acaso. Y nos dijo un chico que estaba cerrado, pero que abría el fin de semana. Que lo único que la chica vendría a abrir a las seis o seis y media. Como no era un problema, hemos venido a Colombres, hemos comido, hemos vuelto a llamar para asegurarnos, y nos lo han vuelto a confirmar. Asi que hemos hecho tiempo hasta las seis, y cuando hemos llegado, la chica nos ha dicho que no sabía nada, que nadie nos ha dicho eso, que no tenía calefacción (tenía en el piso de arriba para una fiesta de moteros, pero se ve que no merecía la pena encender para dos peregrinos que llevaban tres horas esperando), así que a las ocho d la tarde nos hemos tenido que ir a La Franca. Hemos vuelto a llamar y una chica que nos ha cogido lo negaba todo, hasta que tras mucho insistir, nos ha dicho que el chico con el que hemos hablado "estaba en Salamanca". En fin, un desastre, y una forma fatal de tratar a la gente.

Very basic just a bed and a shower nothing else. Very cold

When I arrived after 40 km walking a lady I met at the reception forwarded me to nearest passionate which 3 times more expensive. Since she doesn’t speak English at all I couldn’t understand cause of such trick. All in all it is not hospital place.

The reviews for this albergue are, unfortunately, worth listening to. Although it was easy to find and open (we called ahead a few days before), it was the price (€15) and complete lack of hospitality and amenities that was the most distressing. The room was for eight but operated social distancing measures, so four people per room. We were only given a paper-thin disposable sheet, so if you only have a sleeping bag liner avoid this place at all costs because it was extremely cold. There was no breakfast included with the €15. At best, this albergue should be donation only. It seemed like we were being exploited as it was the only albergues in the village. (July 2020)

I don't think it was that bad. Clean toilets and showers with hot water. Okey beds and a nice garden. Close to shop and restaurants.
