Description and Notice

The hospitaleros speak english, well, and are some of the kindest on the camino. The river is immediately across the street, and is the best place to soak your feet.

All lower bunks!

NOTE: If you stay here, and If you want to take the detour to Pradela when leaving Villafranca, be sure to walk back towards Villafranca a short ways and take the trail which turns sharply left.

Camino de Sant… (not verified)

Very friendly owners! Interesting building in the rock/ mountain. It was a very hot night but it was possible to get fresh Air by opening all the windows. I would definitely recommend this place!

Hostels is very kind there is free tea and coffee and you can leave when you need to in the morning. Room was divided into only 3 beds no bunk beds and a balcony in each. Nice kitchen and drying racks for clothes. Across the stree from the river and from a hotel/restaurant with the best lemon sorbet on this planet!! Swimming area on the river if you go to the right when leaving albergue and cross the street and look for the first stairs down. No it’s not a private river access but the following ones are. Anyway I can’t say enough about this albergue! Also you get an actual clean sheet for the bunk not a disposable.

The host are maybe nice and welcoming but sleeping in humid cold rooms next to a natural rock is unhealthy, in fact I got sick for the first time in 30 days. The thing is this building is half caved in the mountain, cool but not healthy. Be aware. Fox

Stayed 20/5/2017. Awesome. Clean. Hosts are very gracious.

Nice, clean and quiet. Host where nice and spoke english well. If you clean you clothes by hand they offer to spin it for free so it dries very quick. The hostel is in a building where the cliffs are build in the house and is very cool and an experience itself. I hurt my foot during the day and needed some bandage which she gave me, very nice of her. Very friendly. Internet was ok.

Got here today no space so the lovely lady here rang a load of the other Nice Albergues that’s she’s been to and found me a space to save me walking. Even offered me to stay and use there facilities till the place opened! Love them! Must go here if u can

Loved my stay here. Cheapest private room for €20 (has no outside window); you share the bathrooms with the dorms. Bathrooms are very sufficient, place is well cleaned. Included in the price of the private room is cotton bedsheets and blankets, and breakfast (toast, cake/juice from supermarket, Mill and cereals). Coffee, tea and biscuits at your disposal all day. Lovely hosts, who speak very well English and also some French. If full, they will help you try to find another bed.

This is the second time we have stayed here - great stays both times. The hosts are welcoming and the albergue is spotless. Definitely recommend. There are a number of room choices from shared dorm rooms to private.

Everithing went well. I took a private room (1 double bed), with shared bathroom. I would recommend this.
