Can anyone tell me whether the casa rural Casa Curina remains operational and, if so, your opinion of it? Brierley shows it in Dumbria, but Gronze does not. I can find little about it online. Same questions for the pension O Arxentino (which is listed in Gronze). Finally, does the Xunta albuergue in Dumbria offer any bedding other than blankets? Many thanks!

Frances, autumn/winter; 2004, 2005-2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
Don't miss the splendid albergue at Dumbria! It is located on the eastern side of the village next to the local sport hall. If when you arrive the large glass door appears closed just push it, enter and choose a bunk. The helpful hospitalero usually arrives about 17:00 to stamp your Crendencial, take the fee and distribute paper sheets. There are great showers plus toasty sub-floor heat in winter.

I don't recall there being blankets in the Xunta Albergue, but it is a great albergue. Fully functional kitchen!!!

It had blankets (one per bed) last week. A great Albergue. The town is larger than it first appears.

Thank you! Did you happen to notice Casa Curina or O Arxentino as you passed through Dumbria?

The Dumbria Xunta albergue is awesome - stainless steel well built bunks arranged in several separate rooms with doors, lots of room, and balconies with glass doors. Lots of electrical outlets. Down the hall, mens/womens baths with separate rooms for all toilets and showers too. Dedicated laundry room with sinks, and lines outside (many of them). It's a bit out of town, so you do have to walk in to get some food, unless you brought with you and can use in the kitchen provided. It felt very clean, and most of it was concrete/stainless, tile....which is easily kept clean and bug free. here are also sitting areas separate fro the bedrooms, with lots of natural light. It's a win for sure!

In Dumbria is a new albergue O Cabanel. One of the best 👍
