These distances are exact, but are based on a straight line from point to point. Actual walking distances will be slightly longer.
Closed this year
Everyone has their own experience. I have stayed twice, in September 2016, and 2018. I had a private room the first time - very nice and reasonably priced. I had a bunk the next time. The bathrooms were clean and well located. The food was good and adequate. A small tip - I forgot my poles on the second visit and the doors lock behind you as you leave. Luckily another early bird, a Korean, had not left so I ran back and he let me in. I had to wait otherwise, as everyone else was still asleep.
It’s worth having a short break at Mazarife and continuing on to this place.
We can not recommend this albergue. It says here that it has a kitchen, but that is wrong. There are a kitchen, but pilgrims may not use it. After a lot of talking we where aloud to borrow two glasses, to plates and som cutlery. But we had to return them after 1 hour. We tried to book the room through telephone, but it was impossible to get a 100% confirmation. We called again the next day to confirm the booking, because we had walked all the way from Leon. That is 30 km. But again impossible to get a confirmation. I said that we where to arrive at 6pm. The lady who owns the albergue meant that it was to late to arrive at 6pm. After the conversation, we did not know if we had a place to sleep this night. When we arrived she had held the last bedroom for us. Lucky us. But we could not use the washing machine, because after 5pm, it was not aloud to use it. Why???? This is an albergue. The bathrooms are small and no place to hang your clothes. There are no possibilities to buy or make your own breakfast on sundays. And the shops are closed. IF POSSIBLE GO TO THE NEXT VILLAGE! The owner just wants to make money. Very rude and impolite. We does not feel like guests. We feel that we are in the way.
