Camino de Sant… (not verified)

A nice welcome even though our host didn’t speak any English really. Pretty basic: Lots of beds packed in each room 11 in ours - 10 in bunks plus a single. Not many charging sockets and no Wi-Fi (for the first time since Lisbon). No sheets, even disposable ones, or towels. Showers are push button though they work quite well and are clean. Toilet I used had no seat, but toilet paper is provided. Fully equipped kitchen. It’s a donativo and I would say it’s worth €5-8 according to your pocket.

Check-in is between 2pm(14.00) and 10pm(22.00) You can not pre-book a bed but you are served as you arrive until the albergue is full.

Clean, lots of showers, lots of clothesline. Very friendly staff. They opened at 1400 on June 28.

Stayed there on a very cold night and was very warm. Beds are a bit short for a tall guy.

Hospitalero shows preference to some nationalities. Heard him make several racial slurs. I would not stay here again.

Our German hosts were so helpful. They greeted me with a cold glass of water when I walked in from a long walk.

António was a wonderful host and the other guests were delightful. There are a couple restaurants in town - one is a little walk up a hill.

The host was very nice, although he didn't speak English very well. Everything was clean. Nearby is a place where you can eat a pilgrim meal for a very fair price.
