    Just finished my third stay at Roots&Boots. Ideal albergue for peregrinos finishing their walk on the Camino de Santiago. Warm and cozy atmosphere, wonderful staff, best view of the cathedral and close by.

    Very nice hostel with multiple hang out areas and good kitchen. Floor is creaky and loud, but the overall ambience of the establishment is classic.

    Brilliant location!! Really close to the cathedral and is practically on the Camino de Finisterre. Super friendly staff that made everything easy and lots of different spots to hang out. I’m heading to Finisterre for a few days and will then be coming back here, would highly recommend.

    Older hostel, close to the cathedral but still in a quieter part of town. Lovely garden area, downside noisy dorms and could use more bathrooms to guest numbers.

    While I was there my experience was fine, pretty average, but I later discovered that I had bed bugs. I currently have more than 20 bites on my body and called the owner to inform him. I asked for a refund, and he started yelling and told me no. This is unacceptable and I would not recommend staying here.
