It was the 2nd time I stayed there. I loved to meet up with pilgrims and listen to their stories.


The staff was the best part. They are very friendly and have great tips about Santiago. The only downside was the location was outside of old town and a bit secluded.

Even with a reservation they sold our beds then we arrived and they apologize but said that they always har trouble and dot trust in hostelworld.... Very spoiled owner.


Fantastic!! My stay at the Acuario was one of the best I've ever had!! I want to do the "camino" anytime soon and Albergue Acuario will be the destination!!


I booked a bed in a 4-persons dorm, but when I arrived it was just one huge room with little thin wooden departments, so in reality it was a dorm of approx. 30-40 people and not a 4-bed dorm. This was not what I expected. Additionally there was this musty smell of old and moist which happens when there is a bad air circulation. I was not very happy about this, so I told the staff the next morninthat I wanted to cancel the other 2 nights I booked and they were so kind to give me my money back.
