Tucked away in a small plaza (Plaza Torres de Omana) it is a hidden gem. From the door at street level you walk through a hall way then up stairs to the entrance of the Hostel. Warm friendly place, home from home feel. You have the choice of rooms to the front or rooms that overlook the rear courtyard. Noisier... More

I loved this pension. The building was ancient and historical. I loved the woodwork, the door handles and attention to detail. It felt like being in another era. The owners are super friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, spacious and we had the most delightful en suite bathroom. This hotel is situated in the old quarter of Leon and... More

After finishing our stages of Camino de Santiago for 2015, we looked for a nice hostal in Leon city, near the old quarter. Tripadvisor came up with this one. After checking reviews we confirmed price and availability. I guess it was around 38€ double room. Which was interesting for two pilgrims :-) The room was big enough. Bed were comfy... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this hostal, which is is located in the old part of Leon, probably a 7 minutes walk to the Cathedral and the barrio Humedo. The woman who owns/runs the place is very nice. Lots of plants in the front room, etc. Very helpful and friendly. Rooms are good size, nothing fancy.... More

This place is great. Hard to find but worth it. Reasonable rates for great single room with bath. Little balcony of room. Perfect place location is in old town close to everything. Staff is helpful and just great. This place compares with 3 star hotels. I would stay here again.

Great location in the center of Léon and friendly staff. Very quiet to get a good night's sleep. Clean and cozy rooms with a nice bathroom at friendly prices. They had a special room to put our bicycles in and the wifi is good and fast. Would definitely recommend to others.

We spent two nights here in October 2013 and were very pleased with the location, room, staff, etc. The location is on a small plaza convenient to the Cathedral and near the Camino de Santiago route (we were pilgrims and spent two nights in Leon).
