    It depends what you're looking for, of course. In 2013, we stayed at El Molino, an incredibly tranquil casa rurale about 5 miles outside of Hornillos. (When you arrive in Hornillos, you call the owner and he'll come pick you up and then deliver you back to the camino in the morning). Very peaceful, with beautiful grounds, a river flowing through it, and peacocks all around. The owners are very hospitable, and we had a great communal dinner and breakfast. For our private room, lunch when we arrived, dinner, and breakfast, we paid a total of 78 euros for my wife and I. After doing all of the Frances, plus the Portuguese and the Primitivo, it remains our favorite accommodation.

    What's wrong with the municipal? I remember a roof, a bed, hot water and a flushing toilet. And it's convenience to a friendly bar.

    I remember the quite good municipal being jam-packed going into a gym with around 100 others 1 gents 2 ladies showers having projectile vomiting and swearing never again. So next time it was a few doors down the street Sol A Sol clean, good, separate accommodation and a good kitchen.

    But I can recommend Neson....A restaurant at the end of the town. It is owned by an Irish lady. I stayed for an hour or so chatting away to her. She even asked if I would stay for a meal. It was very warm so I opted on walking ahead to Hontanas. Her reason to stay in Spain..Love! :)

    In 2014 we stayed in Hostal de Sol a Sol with Samuel. It was great, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Ask Samuel about his families experience with the making of the movie " The Way" !! We have great memories of our stay there.
    All the best, Anne & Pat.

    I stayed at El Afar right across the street from the meeting point. They have communal meal offered and a nice back yard. It was clean and had nice people when I stayed in October 2017

    Excellent new Albergue El Pajar across the road from the Meeting point. I was very sick to the point of collapse when I arrived and the hospitalero/owner and his wife were so caring to me.

    I would second El Afar, but there are lots of new things happening in Hornillas, like the Korean Barbecue place.

    Yes, I remember the sol a sol (won’t tell you what auto correct did with that name!). Very nice, attentive owner, good kitchen and laundry. Wonderful dinner made with camino friends- some of whom I am still in touch with. Highly recommend
