Restaurant and WIFI from adjacent hotel of same name are available for pilgrim use. To get there, follow the camino as it climbs out of Villafranca. The albergue also has a small shop. Dormitory prices vary by size of room and upper vs. lower bunk.
These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
One of the best places I stayed in. Single beds, clean and comfortable food and drink all good. Open September 2020
It's open and just as good as I remember it being. Single beds in our room, but there are other rooms with bunk beds. Great cafeteria as part of the hotel, and the pilgrim meal in the main restaurant was excellent.
Still closed for covid
Unlike the complainant above, my bag was waiting in plain sight by the reception when I arrived. The staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient. The pilgrims meal was some of the best food so far along the trail. The albergue dorm beds were a flat €10, with quality woollen blanket and clean cotton sheets provided. The building is grand and excellently maintained.
The only weak point was the pilgrims kitchen, which is very basic - it only has a microwave oven (no stove or kettle).
Good hot showers, good peregrino meal in restaurant which is a bit like hotel dining. Better than the truck stop bar. We stayed in albergue with single beds very nice and you can get a blanket at reception. Liked it.
This albergue is awesome. And they have the best bar of any on the Camino Frances.
I had my bags sent to Albergue San Antonio Abad then spent 2 1/2 hours chasing them. They were not on cafeteria but behind a pillar in Hotel Reception - she thought it was funny. I don’t think the hotel/Albergue likes or encourages bag forwarding so maybe skip this one?
Enjoyed this place, choice of single bed or bed beds,2€ more for single bed. Great food.
Great albergue. Stayed in room with single beds and no bunks. Clean and comfortable. Plenty of line space for drying washing. No washing machines, dryers or kitchen. Good dinner at adjoining restaurant.
Treated ourselves to a private room with own bathroom (+shower spa)! 45 euro. Worth it! Lovely break - arrived early and enjoyed our main meal meal at 2.30pm in the hotel which was excellent! Bar is very cosy with locals popping in. Great place to stay for a bit of luxury on this road.
