Description and Notice

Closed for construction in 2022.

Very basic albergue with few facilities just before the town of Borres. Prior to the arrival of the full time hospitalero in August, the place is hit or miss as the caretaker (from Tineo) only turns up a few times a week. To get there, look out for the signs sending you up a track from the camino. To leave there, retrace your steps or follow the road to town. From there you can stay on the road, or turn to the right up an arrowed road.

There’s a great small but brand new albergue called Albergue La Montera. It’s located near the bar and you can find it on google maps.

Very basic albergue, showers were not really clean. But for the price it was fair. The microwave is not working.

LA MONTERA is a very dirty place. There is one toilette and one shower only. Cleanliness does not exist however the place is nice. The owners are nice but very stingy. There are no blankets !!! There is no breakfast and 12 euros for just sleeping is expensive.

The bar where you get the key for the Albergue was having building work done so it was not clear where the key could be attained.

Do not let the caretaker of the municipal albuergue fool you by her curt manner. She’s a sweetheart and took such great care of us. I feel welcomed and cared for this night on our Camino. —Jan 2022
