I am copying parts of a post from another forum relating to albergues on the Aragones:

".. the refuge in Santa Cilia is clean and comfortable - with a lounging area, TV, etc,"

"... Arteida ... a lovely atmosphere there - he was making lentil hotpot for supper!"

"After Arteida came Ruesta - what an amazing place - an abandoned ruined village with at its heart a refuge a bar and a cultural centre! In the latter there was a free concert of Cuban music from a small group from Pamplona!"

"... we stayed in the albergue at the camp site in Sanguesa, (no cooking facilities): stayed the second night in the main albergue."

" ... Izco .. cupboards and huge fridge were bursting with food, tinned and fresh, for us to buy. They were all so welcoming.."

"The best place of all came next - Monreal .. the hospitalerio organises a fantastic menu del dia for the pilgrims - the best meal I've had in Spain - for 9 euroes - of course, including non-stop wine!"

".. Tiebas albergue was filthy, uncared-for - no hospitalerio, no light in the one toilet, the meal in the only bar was yuck, - there were very limited means of cooking in the A".

"Eunate .. We stayed in the little albergue there and it really was a night to remember. We were the only pilgrims and Jean, the French hospitalario who has been there for 3 years, cooked us the most amazing 3 course meal - he had even decorated our "postres" with little yellow arrows cut out of lemon peel!
After the meal we had private blessing service by candle light in the chapel. He seems a man at peace with life. He has created a haven there, made the hedge-bordered stretch down towards the chapel into a "camino Verde" with explanatory pictorial signs on all the plants (in Latin, Castillian, Basque and French), he had peaceful classical music playing throughout his house - which was also the albergue, he'd thought of everything any pilgrim might need. The sad part of it was that, because he picked up and carried our rucksacks upstairs for us, he soon received what were more than likely bed bug bites - probably carried from Tiebas. We then had to disinfect everything and hope that they've been eradicated."
