I made a decision to stop here because the Camino has changed since Sarria and is like walking in a parade. I needed to break from the crowd and am so glad I did! This place is gorgeous and relaxing for reading or napping in gardens under trees. Plus since it was a short day from Portomarín, I decided to take a lovely pack-free walk up to the small church nearby. It felt like a vacation day on the Camino. As for facilities: the shower is amazing (give it time to warm up), WiFi is strong, beds are comfortable and they offer free filtered water from their own well. The restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices and the people who run it are very nice. I highly recommend this albergue for anyone wanting to leave the crowds for a bit and get some true rest.
