Hello there,

Did any of you sleep in an hostal/hotel (not albergue de peregrinos) in Fuente de Cantos ?
Any recos or comments among Casa Vicenta, Hostal Extremadura and Hotel rural la Fabrica ?

Thanks vm.
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

There was an albergue in Funte de Cantos in 2008, unless they have closed it. I remember only having to stay in a hostel in Monesterio, Zafra, and one other place because the albergue was closed for that year.
Hi, eze,

I also stayed in the albergue. It's in an old monastery and one half of the building is an albergue, while the other half is a home for disabled boys. I don't know if the two operations are connected or separate. It's not in the center of town but no more than a 5-10 minute walk. We met several others who stayed in pensiones in town and said they were basic and fine -- I don't know which of the places you mention they were in, though. But the albergue had clean sheets, changed daily (!) and hot modern showers with a big patio for hanging clothes. Breakfast was not top notch, but it's a short walk to the next town where there is a great bar with lots of yummy home made food.

Here's a website that lists all accommodations in Fuente de Cantos, with pictures so you can at least see the exterior. http://www.fuentedecantos.net/alojamien ... ientos.htm

Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).
I stayed at Casa Vincente in 2004 and everyone was very friendly, they were all watching the usual football match. I think it cost about 10 euros for a single room (with separate bathroom) and tortilla and vino tinto. All the info I had read made it sound not very good but I thought it fine but basic. I did try another hostel down the road and they were not very friendly.
Thanks vm Laurie and Liz for your contributions.

I have tried to get in contacts with hostels 'Extremadura and Casa Vicenta without any success (no reply).
Same for los Frailes de Zurbaran.
I'll try again !
Hi Eze,

Go to the albergue, you won't regret it. It's not your regular type of albergue. It's first class accommodation, clean, quiet and very friendly.
My first choice was a hostal or pension but I ended up in the albergue by chance and never looked back.

Hello friends,

I just received a mail from Tourism office of Zafra to whom i had asked information about Albergo Turistico de Fuente de Cantos.
They mention that this Albergo turistico is under "reformas" at moment (reason why i don't get any answer to my mails).
Hope this info will help those having the same questions regarding this lodging in Fuente de Cantos.
