Great location in the old city and convenient if you arriving by airport bus (Plaza de Galicia). Rooms very clean and heated,serviced everyday but bathrooms need a bit of attention (mould on the ceilings). Throws on beds look tired and have not seen a stone wall the one shown on hotel photos. Rooms are poor soundproofed so if you are... More

Our stay in this Hostal was the worst experience of the three week tour. The rooms were extremely basic and nothing like the rustic charm captured on the promotional photos. More like rough student accommodation. Tiny bathroom. Bed linen was old, and no mattress covers which we felt were a necessity in this Hostal. Our parting gift when we checked... More

Very good location in quiet alley and close to underground public parking. Reception is on 3rd floor via lift. Very helpful staff. Our room for 1 night was a bit cramped and the shower was too small for comfort! Still it was quiet, clean and provided easy access to the Cathedral, bars and restaurants.

I would stay again. 5 minute walk to Cathedral. Eat at El Jairo on Rua Carretas just below Praza Obradoiro, and select from the menu of the day for about 7.5 Euros for lunch. The food will truly blow you away. It is outstanding homade traditional Spanish and Galician food.

We were in Santiago de Compostela to see the sights, I would have loved to stay in one of the nicer hotels but they seem to get booked up quickly and we had a limited choice, hence we ended up in the Mapoula. I didn't have high expectations as it is a 'cheap and cheerful' option, but it is centrally... More

We stayed in Hostal Mapoula for three nights, at the beginning of a tour of eastern Spain and Portugal. The Ryanair bus from the airport terminates at Praza de Galicia, literally 25 metres from the entrance to the hotel, so would be very convenient for those considering a short break in this attractive city. Hostal Mapoula is within an easy... More

The hotel Mapoula was clean, central and well priced. However, be aware that you will hear partying and yelling from outside the hotel all night and early hours of the morning. Really hard to get a good night's sleep unless you are a heavy sleeper or wear earmuffs.
