Favorite albergues on the Primitivo?

I can't find a recent thread on the subject, and considering everything I figure we could use a new one.

I just spent the night at Fontenonaya and it was an absolutely wonderful Albergue experience. A privado, it's simple but super cozy and warm both figuratively and literally. Nicolas the hospitalero is wonderful, and it was a great night of communal dinner and music and laughter and fun.

I want more of this and less of "really fancy/modern but basically just a dorm" type albergues. What are some of your favorite stops on the Primitivo?

I have a wonderful memory of staying at the monestery in Cornellana. It had a newly renovated small section in 2016 and I think it may have been enlarged since my stay. I loved its charm and uniqueness!

Hands down with David and Celia in Bodenaya! They represent for me the Camino spirit, true hospitaler@s. What a simple but warm welcome and stay.

Also do not miss my Dutch friends Ton and Ria (also members here) in Albergue Ponte Ferreira 27 km after Lugo. Ria is a great vegetarian/vegan cook. Both have years of experience as volunteer hospis and pilgrims.

And almost forgot, the muni in Grado run by FICS volunteers thanks to our own @Rebekah Scott .

Albergues stays are about the experience and the people you share it with. The most memorable ones for me were:

Bodenaya
San Juan de Villapañada (5 km after Grado) (my first night on the Camino and where I met most people I walked with the rest of the Way)
Albergue Ponte Ferreira (wonderful Dutch hosts and cozy place in a great setting)

Sorry Ton, I would have tagged you but forgot your Forum name!
