The hostel is very clean and has a good price, although their wifi connection is very unstable and the bedrooms have no doors,only a curtain giving little privacy.

Quite good to be a final destination of the Camino.


i was greeted at the Hostel by Barbara, who is so friendly and sweet. But i didn't realise it was hostel for Pilgrims only, so for that reason i say the security is poor as there were only curtains separating the rooms, there were lockers but not enough for everyone and 1.50 per day. It's a 30min walk from the centre but very clean.If i was a pilgrim i would give this hostel top marks but as i traveler it wasn't what i was expecting! Also the other staff member Irene was extremely rude.

I liked this place. Bit far if you want to be in the city centre (especially after walking the Camino) although that said there are good buses that take 20mins to get into the city centre. The hostel is pretty strange, but in a good way. Great atmosphere and the (one) staff was great! Perfect if you need somewhere to spend a night before getting a bus out of the city- 7 min walk to bus station!


This was worst hostel I have met in my life. "Rooms" were made inside 1 big hall with shared ceiling, from about 2 m height walls, with no door - only moving courtains. We paid with cash - no any receipt received (money were put into still box). Shoes of pilgrimages - all were dryed inside entrance rooms wih vending machines and stinch were everywhere. Linnen - blanket on a top. When we arrive at 23.30 insted of 12.00, two our places were sold out (our mobile was given but nobody call to us).


very cheap even around the festival time. check out time of 9am is quite early!

Excelent for the piligrims. Everithing is well organized, two supermarkets are located about 7 minutes away (by feet) from the hostel in two opposite dirrections. But don't forget your sleeping bags ;)


The staff was friendly when we came in but we were not explained the details of the stay, properly. We were surprised to find that both of our beds had body hair all over them. They changed the sheets. Also, there was not any heat in our room or the common area/kitchen. We were cold the entire time. Additionally, the shower water was only mild in temperature. We felt a little misled... Maybe Hostel World should require hostels to list whether they have hot showers and heat in their amenities
