Spotless & great value for money.

The Albergue was spotless and great value for money. Everything I needed. The staff were very helpful. My room was comfortable and there were loads of bathrooms all over to share. It was nice and quiet.

Great Location & Value for Money

Large Old Building a short walk across a grassy valley to the centre of Santiago de Compostela. The private room I stayed in was very basic with a basin but wonderful views of the courtyard gardens & beyond. Shared bathroom and large well equipped kitchen downstairs next to a store which stayed opened late & served soup etc. The dormitories were very large (but the pilgrims were used to that) and the kitchen could become crowded with groups of pilgrims arriving.

This property is in a monastery;so if you don’t want to live like a monk don’t book this place!Seriously this is a big hostel with many dorms and rooms and lots of people young and older.If you want a quiet stay you want a single room.A good value accommodation with parking and not too far from the railway station.I’d stay there again.
