Espinosa has seen better days. Even with centuries of passing pilgrims it struggles to stay on the map. In recent years, a few buildings have been rehabilitated into an albergue and a bar.

What a gem! This small Albuerge is run by a German couple who have equipped it nicely with the pilgrim in mind. They greet you with a drink (warm herbal tea in the rain!) and assisted getting things hung to dry. There was even a shoe dryer. There are 4 single beds in the room, each with its own locker large enough to hold your backpack, a socket, individual bed lamps, a shelf, and all bed linens and towels were included. Wi-Fi quality was good. Washer and dryer are available for a fee. The meals were outstanding and beautifully presented - homemade vegetable soup followed by a lovely pasta carbonara and a trifle dessert beautifully plated. Breakfast with homemade breads, yogurt, jams, a warm soft boiled egg in a nice egg cup, hams and cheese. The care taken to make the guests feel at home and taken care of was truly exceptional - it truly was like being asked into someone’s home and being treated as special guests. It was such a nice welcome for a couple muddy, wet, and cold pilgrims.

Nice place to have an espresso.

Another option! Decent 6-bed rooms (3 bunks) upstairs, clean bathrooms, cooking facilities, laundry facilities, and dinner/ breakfast available for an extra fee. As we left we saw pilgrims coming in from elsewhere for breakfast.
