Description

The Hostelz.com Review

Albergue Albas is just outside the Old Town of Logroño and occupies the ground floor of a residential block of apartments that are grouped around a circular pedestrianised plaza, which contains trees, a children’s play park, and a cafe.

The Location

Albergue Albas is just a couple of streets away from the river and the cathedral. The main streets that serve pinxos in the evenings are just a ten-minute walk away. Security is good and access to the hostel outside reception hours is via a key code.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel has one large dormitory, which contains twenty-two beds but these bunks are arranged for maximum privacy with wooden screens among them. Each bed has hooks at the end for your belongings and comes with a pillow and a bottom sheet. Bring your own sleeping bag or hire a blanket for a small fee. The room has plenty of windows for ventilation and a door that opens out onto a terrace. Despite the number of beds, it feels nice and airy.

The bunk beds are quite small but they are comfortable and most have a small cabinet or a chair alongside them. Electrical sockets and extension cables are freely available for charging your devices and for your security there are lockers, which are operated with a code available from reception. These lockers are not big enough for a backpack, but will take a small daypack and valuables. Rucksacks can be pushed under the beds or propped alongside.

The shared bathroom has two toilets, three showers, and three hand basins. Hand soap and paper towels are provided and there are plenty of hooks around. The shower cubicles are large and have a double curtain system so that your belongings don’t get wet. Towels are available for hire if you need one.

Common Spaces

There is a separate dining/kitchen area with a large table and you can also find a microwave, a fridge freezer, and a good selection of crockery and cutlery. Guests are free to cook and to store food in this kitchen.

Behind a screen at reception there is a small seating area with a couple of small tables.

There is a small selection of board games available for guests to use and plenty of literature about the town of Logroño. You will be given a free map and information about Logroño when you arrive. The hostel is popular with pilgrims who are walking the Camino de Santiago, which runs through the city.

Summary

Laundry facilities are available for guests at the hostel and there is a large terrace at the rear of the dormitory where you can hang wet clothes. There is a drinks vending machine, free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel, and furnishings are of good quality and it is all very clean.
