This was the albergue that made me realize I don’t like staying in albergues. The hospitalera was very friendly at check in, and the facilities are reasonably clean. But the rooms are cramped, the beds are creaky and uncomfortable, the showers are ridiculously small, and there is currently construction going on across the street which meant a generator was running well into the evening and early the next morning. And Ventosa itself is unlovely and dull and not worth the detour. Wish I had gone to Najera instead.

Nice place to stay. I always like the multi-level places. A nice dining room on the bottom level with relaxing music playing and candles burning. A sunny courtyard offers a nice place to hang out and relax. Showers were probably the smallest I've seen yet on the Camino and hot water was scarce. Read past comments about a bed bug problem, but if they had them in the past, they appear to have solved the problem now. Overall a good place to stay!

Very nice and homely place. The couple who owns it are friendly and makes a good atmosphere. At six a clock beautiful wake up music is played over loudspeakers. the place has a nice little garden to relax in.

Arrived in significant pain with tendonitis and after explaining this I asked if we could possibly stay two nights to rest. The hospitalero replied sharply that I shouldn't have been walking. She then told me I would be fine the next day after a rest. Not supportive. I don't recommend.

Very clean and neat alburgue with excellent directions and organization. Laundry room in the back. Beautiful garden to relax in. I would stay here again. They have a small “shop” to buy vegetables and milk. But they are very strict. Only one day allowed. Cafe at the top of the hill is lovely. Good paella.

Very nice auberge. Owners are nice, rooms are fine, bathroom is great and everything is very clean. Nice little garden and common room. 2 restaurants/bars within easy walking distance, the one on the top has a nice pilgrim dinner (€10). Would absolutely stay here again.

Seems well liked, I enjoyed the patio area and yard. I slept on the wrong floor of where the men’s room is but can’t really complain, loved this. Small store in the lobby they even had stamps when I asked so that I could send some postcards.

Really cute albergue with nice outdoor sitting area. Clean, comfortable beds. There’s no market in town but the albergue sells some basic groceries to make dinner.

Absolutely loved my stay here. The hospitaleros are kind and welcoming, there are signs in the rooms and bathrooms encouraging pilgrims to collaborate in keeping the albergue clean. Showers were hot and I’m definitely used to the variety of sizes of shower stalls on the Camino! It had a good “pilgrim” energy.

September 2020. Sign at the turnoff to Ventosa says they the albergue is closed.
