  1. The Pequeno Potala, a haven of cleanliness and peace, is one of my
    favorite camino spots. A
    small bell tinkles when you first enter through the rear door. Soothing
    music can be heard in the
    background. Bunks with duvets are arranged in a few small dorms. Home
    cooked meals are copious and delicious (vegetarian is an option).
    Massages are available. All is offered with true caritas by the two hospitleros. Each time that I have stayed here has been pure
    pleasure. Carlos is an outstanding host and chef who puts all pilgrims at
    ease. Late last November we were eighteen at table yet the
    ambiance was most serene. He answered questions, offered advice and
    quieted jitters while simultaneously from a few jars, bottles, cans and
    boxes created a modern day miracle of the “loaves and the fishes” to
    feed us all…Perfection!

  2. Very pleasant place and the perfect overnight to do the run up to O’Cebreiro in the morning. Loved the fluffy comforters and the music was wonderful. The best food along with a large, wonderful bathroom, and you can get clean clothes – what more do you need?

  3. Stayed at this place 3 separate times on various caminos since July 2016 and after 2,100 kilometres walking out there, it remains my all-time favourite albergue. The meals – like the hosts – are simply sensational.
