Time of past OR future Camino
Next: a Christmas Camino?
Has anyone stayed here recently? Looks like the only cheaper option, but the last review on Gronze is from July 2022, stating that the albergue is closed...

I’ve been there some years ago (2018) and my impression was not that bad. Well, the hospitalero behaved a little bit like a master seargant but I don’t know if it is still the same person. All in all it was OK.
When I look at Gronce now it appears to me that they are open.
Thanks! It is just so strange that there aren't any recent reviews. And the older reviews are quite mixed. I can of course send them a message to ask if they are open, but it would be nice to hear about any recent experiences.
I stayed there in April and it was quite ok. An older couple run the albergue but it is clean and welcoming.
Buen camino
Last season they were in need of staff and was closed down, as well as they usually are closed in winter season.
Good to hear it is open again
Stayed here a couple of times

Don't go by when albergues are reviewed in Gronze. I try to write reviews wherever I stay. I have opened a comment section in many albergues, especially on less traveled routes, and noticed that the newest review was a few years old. Gronze lists it as open. Although never 100% accurate it is a good indicator. You can always call.
I arrived there in October 2022 and found it closed. The gentleman who lives beside the albergue led me up the hill opposite the albergue to Hostal San Francisco. Singe room with bathroom and there is a bar/cafe on the ground floor. Well worth the climb up to the castle and village on the other side of the river.

Could you please provide information about which sections of the Silver Way (VDLP) are entirely paved?

For those that have walked the VdlP, where did you fly home from? I will likely fly into Seville. But flying home? I plan to end my camino at Finisterre or Muxia (or if not possible then at...
