This is a traditional, clean, simple donativo albergue with a one-room large dormitory, that has wonderful medieval-style paintings all over the walls and ceiling. There is a microwave for pilgrims to use and a large table and benches, if you want to buy your own food (in the nearby supermarket) and eat with your fellow pilgrims, in the traditional and socially-bonding way of the Camino.
It is an old building so prone to being cold (a boon on the hot August day and night I was there) but the albergue also provides blankets for those who want them.
No evidence of bed bugs when I was there and all mattresses and pillows have the thick rubber/plastic blue covers that keep bedbugs at bay. I would definitely stay here again. (Monastery tours at 10.30, 11.30, 12.30, 16.30 & 17.30 on weekdays and 12.30 on Sundays. Tour costs 5€ and last about 45 mins. Beautiful to see the inside of the monastery and cloister).
