Lovely place, run by a Spanish couple who are very welcoming and a font of knowledge on all caminos. Great, firm mattresses. Home style communal dinner and breakfast. Heart warming.

As of April 2022, this albergue is finally a nice real albergue run by the amazing Angela and Pako. So heartwarming welcome. I was so exhausted when I arrived - no questions asked they provided me with juice and water until I felt better. Clean facilities; great rich cummunity dinner; small breakfast; you can wash clothes and the construction of the bunks gives you some privacy, and they have a shelf and plugin each. Also fresh sheets and blankets. They dont accept reservations though, as they follow the traditional style. Highly recommended, great place.

There is a photo you see here of an Albergue with 30 beds - a donativo - I never saw such a place - However, the new Albergue - also the donativo that opened in April (and mentioned in the comments) - has since changed Hospitalero - and is currently run by a Dutch woman called Karen who is a musician and actively interested in the Camino and Albergues - Hence it's been cleaned up quite well and I was able to cook a great meal with the quite large quantity and variety of food available. Karen does like to chat which may or may not suit your mood, but she is very considerate and easy going - Interested in cooking and hanging out etc. The beds are really comfortable and the shower is great too. I was alone here - If you are able to contribute a little bit of love and care and suggestions in helping Karen out a bit to improve the place you will be doing a great thing. - H.J.Appleby

The New albergue has opened april 2019. It is a very nice place with a young and very friendly and helpful hospetalero, who serves two meals. Still donativo.

Stayed here about 10 days after the new albergue opened. It is a lovely building and the hospitalero is great. Shared dinner which was tasty. However the albergue was already very dirty and untidy - probably the dirtiest hostel I stayed at on the whole camino. Dog hair everywhere, a greasy kitchen, rubbish everywhere and the bathroom needed a good clean. The mattresses/beds still needed unpacking. The sheets had not been changed and there were no pillow cases. I don’t wish to stereotype but this probably comes with a young guy looking after the albergue. I just hope it doesn’t get any worse.
