Run by the same organization that runs the albergue in Ponferrada, this is considerably smaller and more pleasant. It has a beautiful and sunny (fingers crossed) patio with an Acebo (holly) tree in the middle.
These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
The donativo is open, I stayed here on 11th of september 2020. Because of the covid there can be served no breakfast or dinner. The place was Nice and clean. The hospitalero was helpful.
This is a really nice hostel. Dorms are wooden and sectioned off so it doesn’t feel like one big room. You have to leave your large backpack downstairs which really isn’t a problem. Mattresses are good, shower is powerful and there is a large garden for clothes hanging, relaxing, etc. Breakfast and dinner are included. WiFi is strong.
I loved this albergue, it's small and there was one hospitalero who was funny and friendly. We cooked and ate dinner together, it's a lovely community atmosphere.
