Camino de Sant…

Thankful the place was open (May 2022). Very tight accommodations, received a stink eye for our donativo, and one of the mattresses had mold on the underside. Only one power outlet in a room with six beds. Options are unfortunately few in this stretch. Would have considered pushing on but it was a very hot day.

Camino de Sant…

Have 40 beds with 5 overflow mats. Warm/hot showers, washing machine, spin dryer, microwave, refrigerator and offer coffee and toast at 7 in the morning. Very close to grocery store and restaurant with good pilgrim menu.

Slept her in May 2019 and I will recommend it to everybody who come here! The two volunteers took care of everything great. Nice sitting room with the, coffee, microwave and refrigerator.

Rude host, dirty place. But due to the difficult hike slept like a baby. The building itself is great but need a serious reconstruction. Avoid if you can. Fox

Camino de Sant…

Nice and cozy place, long tables with some kitchen facilities (kettle and microwave) were good for the communal spirit of the Camino and I had a great night. Bathrooms are clean and there’s warm water in the showers. Actually opened at 14:30.
