The staff was so generous and full of love.
The evening was filled with singing, laughing, guitar playing and drums.
Everyone ate together and got to know each other.

A long established al argue which exemplifies all that is best about the Camino. The evening meal was wholesome and generous.

Art objects decorate every wall and service. The staff are kind and have a great generosity of spirit.

This place does have bedbugs and I don't think they will be gone anytime soon. It's really a shame because it's one really great albergue. The owners totally know about it because they make you store backpacks in a different room.

Lots of bed bugs.

I am sorry to write this, but I went there today and found a big and living bedbug on the first bed I checked. The host offered to sleep in another room, I refused and got my money back without any problems. The place looks very great and special and it is sad that it still struggles with bedbugs.

Went to stay there a couple of days ago, got to our room and unrolled my bed sheet and dead bed bug rolled out. Spoke to the host and got our money back. Some pilgrims that stayed woke up with bites.

The hosts are lovely, but the whole place is a bit dirty and threadbare. It needs a damn good clean.

I really liked the hosts and the vibe, so it pains me to say this, but absolutely avoid this place. 4 people in my room, myself included, woke up with dozens of bed bug bites. Deeply unpleasant.

If you do stay here, take an upper bunk and sleep in a silk liner, as the bugs are near the floor.

Good hearted people but now a well run establishment. Cold in the winter and the bathrooms/shower were a disaster.

This is one of the most charming places I have stayed at on the camino. Not the most tidy and modern, but the staff are from heaven, and the community dinner was the best I have gotten so far. And the breakfast was fabulous. A must stay!

Best alburgue with the worst bathrooms. Love this place and it’s wonderful staff.
