Small shop inside the albergue. The village is quite small, only 40 people. Three of the families make their living producing Queixo de Cebreiro, which can be sampled at the bar in the albergue.

I agree with all the comments on Casa Galego! Beautiful place, the owner will make any food you like, and there is laundry. A must on the Camino!

Closed until 2024 season starts, but just wanted to say that we had a great experience, comfortable, clean room, but the icing on the cake was the communal dinner. At this stage you will likely know many people and have a great, social experience. The hosts made a real effort. Definitely recommended.

Every comment written and made about Casa Galego is spot on. We loved our stay here. Luxury at a reasonable price. Come on Wise Pilgrim - please add this one to you list of recommendations. You've been asked numerous times. Fellow pilgrims are missing out.

Leaving the town there is an old woman (seemingly) giving out fresh made crepes. She makes them seem free, but asks for money once you take one. It’s not clear how much they are, but she told one of our friends €3 for a small crepe with cheese. Even our friends who are always looking out for scams got got.

It's not on the list but amazing experience for really low price. Private rooms are beautiful and clean and so comfortable with amazing views, probably my favorite 'luxury' experience on the Camino for the price of just a regular albergue! Highly recommend as it's the last high point on the Camino from here on and it's a great place to take some time and get away from the crowd, relax and enjoy. The ladies running the place are angels and so kind and sweet. They didn't speak English but I used Google translate. They've got great strong wi-fi. Only down side is sometimes power goes out during storms but it's not common

Lovely people, comfortable facilities, scrambled eggs and local (farm next door) cheese. Excellent Communal dinner in a cool building with conical thatched roof.

The lady who owns Casa Galego gave us the warmest welcome on the Camino. Casa Galego has excellent views, is squeaky clean, inviting, has great food, laundry services, a bar, a sitting area with fireplace, a place for bicycles, and breakfast. The private rooms are underpriced for what you get. The pillows and mattresses are extremely comfortable, the shower is hot with great pressure, soap and gel is provided and the sheets are ironed and white with a comfy duvet. Excellent place!

PLEASE add this lovely hotel with private rooms to your list. The food was great, the bed was so very comfortable, the hot water and shower were great, the people were so nice they pressed fruit on us as we ventured forth in the morning. This was a good stop.

Our hosts were so welcoming. After our walk from Las Herrerias it was great to have a refreshments in the bar with a wood burner. Definitely stay here again.
