These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
Stayed here in la parada in 2018 and paid €1 for a blanket, am pretty sure i picked up bedbugs from that. Not suprised to sit here now in September 2021 and read other comments about this. Also he was indeed very grumpy. Apart from that, a reasonable albergue. Needs new management, maybe covid will result in changed and better management.
The bathrooms are large and clean. Most unhelpful host I have come across. Very surly
An unfriendly host and ultimately not worth the price.
I did not feel welcome here.
The shower was able to get unbearably hot! And maintain its heat. While I was showering I thought to myself “wow! This is a LOT of water!” I would say it’s been the most satisfying shower on the Camino so far. But I would say that is the only thing good about this entire place. You can tell it’s ran with a Business oriented mindset it costs 1€ to even get a blanket. Laundry is ridiculously priced and the man operating the Albergue/Bar has probably the coldest personality of you can get him to talk. It’s all about the money.
On July 5, we were to stay in a double room (two twin beds--Room C). We unmistakedly found live bedbugs, and bedbug stains on both the beds on the sheets and pillowcase. We notified the staff, who came to look and claimed the insects were "mosquitoes." We quickly removed our items and made arrangements to stay elsewhere, in Leon. To our dismay, the La Parada staff did not seem to know how to handle the situation as they then proceeded to flap the bedding around and move blankets from one room to the next, and back again, which surely will spread the problem. It was evening, so the manager was off duty, however the maids' comments gave the indication that he is aware of this problem, and yet is renting out the room.
