Albergue de Sonia - Buen Camino is a lovely place to stay when you come to visit the end of the world, at Fisterra. The owner and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful and will make sure you have a good time.
Fisterra is very small, so everything is within walking distance. The hostel is a few minutes' walk away from the bus station, the port with all its trendy seafood restaurants, and the famous lighthouse in the end of the world is about three kilometers away and makes for a nice little hike. There are great beaches around where you can find many shells and watch spectacular sunsets. Just ask the staff for tips -- they know best. There is also a small bakery nearby.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The building is in fine shape. The rooms are very spacious and comfortably designed; the beds and mattresses have probably seen better days and are a little worn out, but they get the job done. Disposable sheets are provided (but no towels), and there are warm blankets as well as lighter ones, and it's always quite cozy indoors. In the dorms you'll also find lockers for valuables. There are some power outlets scattered around the rooms, but no personal lights. There are plenty of bathrooms in the rooms, as well as shared ones. The bathrooms are kept very tidy and are equipped with hand soap, shower gel, and hand towels. Many of the lights are automatic, which is quite convenient.
There is a large dining area around reception where you'll always find people drinking wine, sharing experiences, cooking, and chilling out. They don't have Wi-Fi, so you'll have to actually talk to each other! A very basic breakfast is included -- it's just some toasts and jam. They also offer laundry services and a sauna, for an extra cost. You can also buy some souvenirs here. The staff can help you with any questions about transportation in the area. They are also quite flexible with checkout time and will gladly store your bags for you for the day if you'd like.
There are many hostels to choose from in Fisterra; while this one might not be the most pampering one, the personal touch and warm welcome are very noticeable and pleasant. We especially love the atmosphere and the location.
