We were not satisfied by this hostel. It is not cleaned especially the bathrooms. I think this is one of the worst that we have found along the whole Camino de santiago. On the other side the guy who attended us on the phone and at arrival was very nice,funny and helpful. Also the decoration of the spaces and the...

It was a pretty basic hostel but cheap, comfy beds, very clean, very good shower and friendly staff. My only concern was that there is no lock on the bedroom door (I was in a 4 bed female dorm) which meant anyone could walk in- the door didn't shut properly. A couple of times a man walked into the room...

The first boy from staff was very kind and helpful. The room was big and clean. The hostel wasn’t as central as we thought and we walked at least 20 min at the historical Centre. We fall asleep so we were late for breakfast and when we arrived there only past date yogurt. It was not my favorite hostel but...

This hostel reminded me of hostels a decade ago. Meiga does have wifi so it's not that old school. If you plan on staying a while in Santiago you can work out some kind of exchange. Simple dorm rooms with a lot of space. The kitchen is older, but it is sufficient for whatever you need to cook. Great water...
