I have to say that we weren't overly impressed by this refugio but it was the Only one ( of three in the book ) that was open in this town and as we had come along way this day we decided to stay in any case !!
The Refugio is in a new and purpose built building behind the Bar of the same name and the facilities are good enough, however we found it Very Cramped with not enough toilets and showers for the number of pilgrims that had been shoe-horned in !!
Also we found the staff Very Unfriendly, the service in the Bar and Restaurant Very Poor but it has to be said that the food was Good if somewhat Expensive !!
The Bar / Restaurant was Closed for Breakfast -- not even a cup of coffee available !!
The best thing about the town was the town it's self -- Very Pretty Place with Awesome views over the surrounding countryside !!!!!

Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Hostel

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
