Ivar probably knows the answer to this. For a few years up until Covid, I much enjoyed the annual update (last one 2019). I assume Covid interrupted it. Anyone know if the author plans to resume updating.

I would never be one to want to promote "favorite" albergues. Hey, Mods let not promote a thread like this, SVP!

I think what makes a favorite albergue is the "personal" experience you have in that albergue. I have great memories of albergues that were cold and bare with barely a convenience besides running water and a lukewarm shower. Less than wonderful in albergues with many creature comforts but with obnoxious and or rude pilgrims or hospitalarios. I have been to the same albergue on more than one occasion in different years and had both good, bad or indifferent nights.

No promotion here. I was clarifying that the list that the OP referred to, was a list posted in the Resources section by an individual forum member. The Resources section allows for updating of PDF documents, which can be a very convenient feature. We can all see when the documents were uploaded and last revised. A list of albergues that pre-dates the pandemic is likely to be of limited use.
