The couple who own histal el refugio are super. They provide comfortable rooms crisp white sheets and simply amazing food. A joy to stay here.

Very pilgrim unfriendly. Kept me waiting at check in by saying ‘just a moment’ and then helping customers in the restaurant. Pointed to a chalkboard with times for bar and restaurant, gave me the room key and said ‘second floor’. When I came down at 16.10 to ask for the laundry, I was told laundry service stops at 16.00. This is saying so on a sign in the room, they kept telling me. But me and two other pilgrims have no such sign in any of our rooms! The lady just said: no laundry until tomorrow. Fortunately the albergue across the street has a place to do laundry by hand, an electric spinner and a clothes line. People over there were way more friendly and helpfull!

The chef at this restaurant takes pride in his work. We had vegan menus and they were thoughtful and beautifully prepared and presented. Breakfast was also lovely

Unfortunately I had a rough ungracious experience at this albergue also , specifically at the restaurant . The Place is charming , rooms clean , check in perfunctory. Dinning experience was poor . He was ungracious period . Food had to much oil , no salt as usual , I received the wrong order ,which I didn’t eat and he did deduct from the bill . Food is expensive for Spain and the experience was sour . I asked for water, finally got it - he put it on the table wo opening it . Wasn’t an easy open . Shouldn’t happen - like he was doing be a favor . Sorry to say so !

Stayed here in November 1. Chris and Toño were very friendly and accommodating. They offer a nice vegetarian meal. The beets with onions,carrots and potatoes were great as was the stuffed zucchini. I speak a little Spanish and they were very helpful in explaining things. Toño grandparents lived there. The dining room is very comfortable and was originally housing the animals. He explained the original configuration of the building. It was fascinating and made the stay even more enjoyable. Oh, the room and bathroom was very good too. An aside, Sara at the tienda was gracious and kind. She even gave me a chocolate as I was leaving. I love this place and it’s because of the people I met.

If you want to have a peaceful reflective night stay here attend the pilgrims mass in the church and then sample what must be some of the best food on the Camino
