This is a wonderful old Monestary. It does not officially open until 16:30. If you get there before 13:30 you will be signed in. That said, the hot water for the showers does not come on until four ^^. Also as you leave the check in area, the showers in the right back corner have a control handle versus the push button for better control. This town has several options for eating.

Ultreya,

I remember telling people how terrible this albergue was, as I did not know that it had been totally refurbished since I was first there in 2009. I was pleasantly surprised when I stayed there in 2012.

In March 2007 I detoured to Sobrado from the Camino Frances at Arzua. Stayed at the pilgrim albergue within the Cistercian/Trappist monastery; there also is a separate hospderia for visitors. This monastery complex is a Baroque masterpiece, but then the albergue dorm was a actually in a renovated stable; no other pilgrims were there and it was freezing! Earlier I wandered alone through the other structures in awe. Attended Vespers with one other 'outsider'. The evening service was held in a splendid circular contemporary space. Walls were either painted white or natural wood. All was lit by thick, sputtering candles. The monks wearing their white robes responded in unison. It was a true privilege to share such a timeless ambiance.

Buen Camino!
