Can you tell us what was so odd about it? Looking at their website it looks very nice.

It is a lovely Albergue...spotlessly clean,lovely garden and lovely rooms...BUT....the weirdest person running it.....he was very polite ...he checked myself and my daughter in...showed us to our private room...he gave us a key to a side emergency door....nothing too strange yet.....nobody else seemed to be around.....he said dinner would be at 7.30.......10 minutes later he knocked on our door, asked if we wanted a beer....he brought it out to us in the garden.......then said something about closing (my Spanish is only fair)......we discovered that he was gone and all doors were Locked!....we were Outside!....eventually we succeeded in opening the emergency door with the key....very tricky.......after our shower and a lie down,there was a knock at the door....it was him!.....he didn't talk but another Pilgrim was with him...he tried to explain to me in Spanish that there would be no dinner that night.....then the Hospitalero pointed to his head,rolled his eyes and ran down the Stairs!...the Spanish pilgrim and I went down and he was amazed to discover all doors locked.....no way out except for my key......we sat out in garden later.....more pilgrims came along ...we explained the situation....there was no way in to the Albergue......they were after a long day and wanted to stop......I left them in the side door and tried to explain(in Spanish),that if they go out they would not be able to get back in ......myself and my daughter went out for dinner in the town.....on coming back we discovered the others all outside ...locked out....they were grateful that we came along......they were a group of about 6....they slept in the bunks......next morning the Hospitalero was around....he didn't speak to anyone....we all left.....strange,
