Much easier to get to if you do not take the alternate route via Campo. Stay on the road the leads from Molinaseca ALL THE WAY into Ponferrada. It is the LE 142. The dinner offers a vegetarian option and they can make bocadillos too.
These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
I have stayed at this albergue three times and am always happy with my stay. The wonderful team of hospitaleros, led by Hope, will make you feel like family the moment you arrive. Do not miss the wonderful evening meal - vegetarian and vegan options available.
Absolutely a wonderful place to stay. Hope will quickly get you settled and make you feel like family.
So friendly, warm and welcoming. The bunks are really comfy and everywhere looks fresh airy and clean. Bunks are with fresh cotton sheets so super comfy. We had the best lentil soup on the whole Camino and delicious quiche. Food was excellent and served in a nice dining room. The only negative is its slightly out of the old city but only a 10 minute walk and actually closer to Camino for the mornings, walking. I'd say it's a 9/10.
Lovely place with lovely people. They also serve great food and are very close to the start of this camino and to the Frances. The centre of town is only a 10 min stroll away. Beds are provided with clean sheets and pillow cases. Also the is a dryer here for those wet days.
