Run by the same organization that runs the albergue in Ponferrada, this is considerably smaller and more pleasant. It has a beautiful and sunny (fingers crossed) patio with an Acebo (holly) tree in the middle.
These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
This is a really nice hostel. Dorms are wooden and sectioned off so it doesn’t feel like one big room. You have to leave your large backpack downstairs which really isn’t a problem. Mattresses are good, shower is powerful and there is a large garden for clothes hanging, relaxing, etc. Breakfast and dinner are included. WiFi is strong.
I loved this albergue, it's small and there was one hospitalero who was funny and friendly. We cooked and ate dinner together, it's a lovely community atmosphere.
