A few blocks away from the bus station. Has a cozy vibe, especially in the common room. There may be some delay in check in as the main door of the building needs you to call in via speakerphone and sometimes the receptionist on duty may not be on hand to answer.

I spent two nights at the Aloha Hostel and I definitely recommend this place. Pamplona was where I would begin the Camino de Santiago and the Aloha Hostel was a great place to stay at before the hard work began. I stayed in a private room on the third floor. Room 6 in the 3A portion, which was clean and extremely spacious. I shared the bathroom with only 2 other rooms, which was great. There was a TV and an armoire to store my clothes. With three beds, I figure this one is often used as a family room. And for 36 euro a night, it was a bargain. There is a small kitchen and a common room, as well as an outside terrace where you can hang out. Wifi worked well throughout the hostel. It's only a short walk to the old town and everything you need is within walking distance. The staff was very nice and helpful. The free breakfast is basic, but it does the job. Definitely a comfortable and welcoming stop on the Camino!

Clothes drying (important if you’re walking the camino) is only possible from 10am. This is unhelpful when you have to leave at 8am and your clothes are still wet. As our clothes hadn’t dried by the evening (despite assurances by staff that they would and that there was no need for us using the dryer), we asked how we can dry our clothes (happy to have done it DIY and paid for the privilege too). We were told this was not possible. Then the staff member’s male companion said he would dry our clothes (interesting given this was apparently not possible) for effectively double the price. When we said he was trying to take advantage, he basically said take it or leave it and the actual staff member called me crazy. The guy confirmed this and asked what nationality I was (as if that has anything to do with anything...) Even if I were crazy, no CUSTOMER would appreciate being called that. He then got fed up and said he wouldn’t dry our clothes and how dare we disturb his dinner. First of all, I didn’t disturb his dinner but if he’s a staff member and on duty then this shouldn’t be an issue. Second, if he’s not a staff member, how does he have authority to take guest’s money on the hotel’s behalf?! Third, he raised his voice and was abusive. This is all not in the spirit of the Camino. The hostel itself looks much better in pictures than in real life (misleading advertising). The more expensive double rooms share 1 bathroom between 6 people (same ratio effectively as the dorms but you end up paying extra). In sum, I appreciate this is a business, but they try to rip you off where they can.

This was my first hostel experience. It was clean but people were loud after midnight that I did not get any sleep. I was going on my first day of my Camino without any sleep. It is above Dominoes Pizza.

I have stayed in Pamplona twice before- this is the worst hostel to date. Not the staff but the management are poor. I booked to stay one night in a female dorm for €20 inc breakfast. I had emailed in advance requesting, via booking.com for a bottom bunk (some places reserve customer choice, others do not) unfortunately as on this occasion the management confirmed shortly after my booking that this was not an option- so good communication. Upon arrival I was greeted by a very helpful lady, and her colleague who was seeing other Pilgrims around the accommodation. We were offered stamps for our credential which was great. Two girls had taken the wrong beds in room 5 but were advised of their actual booking in room 1(?) I think. I was given top bunk in room 5. The room is not as you see it in the photos on booking.com actually none of the photos are actual sightings from current day. Room 5 in particular (I cannot comment on the other rooms as I didn’t have the keys) was small- too small to move in. Myself and another pilgrim had two 35L bags and the space was too small for us both, bag and all. Room 5 beds are bunked and pretty much on top of each other, both sets. The photos from website are taken from a very different angle. It was horrible. The other Pilgrim in my room called it a youth hostel not an albergue. There was nowhere to put your towels or clothes. They provide lockers which are very small and might only hold the basics- miniature wash, lotions and books etc, small things. The day was hot- ok- most shutters were closed but windows not. The intensity of the smell and heat was unbearable in room 5. I am a well travelled asthmatic and have stayed in much worse but only as a last resort. The dense air quality was u comfortable even just sitting there in the common area. The kitchen was messy and unkept, food was left out. The bathrooms were being used but smelt of sweat and excess water was all over the floors. It made the main Albergue in Roncesvalles look luxury. I asked the receptionist if there were other possibilities available because in my opinion room 5 was a safety hazard. I had stayed the night before in another hostel and it was all open plan- aired & clean and twice if not triple the size in a similar building for 20+ people. Both members of staff were helpful, they offered me another room but I’d have to wait for the customer to return to exchange. All fair enough. However, I emailed the management team requesting for a full or part refund on the basis that the room is not as advertised, the conditions of the accommodation also not as advertised and the heat in the rooms, a polite warning or acknowledgment that the accommodation was not as advertised wouldn’t have gone a miss. I received a response to my request within a few hrs later. All customers are shown toilets and showers- I was not. Trying to explain that about the hot weather- pilgrims smell- which again is a generalisation and doesn’t explain why there was not acknowledgement from staff at checkin about the odour. All rooms are as photographed- they are not as actual sight. I suggest you take a close look at the photos and when you stay take some more to give the true representation of the accommodation. I found somewhere else to stay, close to the Camino for the same price.

After a knackering walk through brambles and snow I was so happy to get here. Barbara was so welcoming and made sure me and my fellow peregrinos were comfortable and then we had a bit of food together and she told us many great stories of her journies. I had so much fun I decided to stay another day!

This hotel is not really as it appears in the picture. It's located in a building that is in a corner in the city of Burgos, and it has several floors that you have to access through elevators. I've booked a doble room that was in the upper floor. The appartment had like 3 rooms with a common bathroom, and the room was leading to the road where there's also a bar, so even if it's sunny, you can hear the people talking outside the bar and the cars passing by. The pictures that you see is of the 1st floor, where is the reception and the small cubic rooms of 4. The front dorms lead also to the same road and bar, and the other ones to a small terrace, that is nice, where you can hang your clothes, but that is unaccessible during winter time. The kitchen is very small, only 2 people can be inside (so I imagine the experience of several guys cooking). The living room is in size like the pictures show, not so tidy. This is the only common space for all seasons. The breakfast provided is very simple: square bread, jam, butter, coffee and milk. You have to help yourself. I would also add that the floor is wooden so in the 1st floor, where the main dorms are located, you can hear very well the people coming and going to bathroom and kitchen. Also, it's away from the main center, but it has a couple of markets around and it's 4 blocks aways from the bus station.

The receptionist was incredibly rude/arrogant! A shame since the place looked rather decent. I don’t tolerate being treated that way; I opted to stay in a hotel. Tell your staff to go find another job if she doesn’t like the one she has!

Oh dear. This was a really awful experience. It's very surprising to read the good reviews here. I can only assume that the person who "welcomed" us is not the only person who worked there. Our receptionist was so utterly rude it was almost laughable. Not the tiniest hint of a smile until she showed us the, admittedly very nice, communal space and outdoor terrace. What was really bad, however was the cleanliness, or rather, lack of it. Of course, this is a hostel and you can't expect luxury but we'd been staying in hostels on all of our journey and we had never encountered anything like this. The beds had hairs and food remains on them (sesame seeds on mine), the sheets we were handed had stains and the pillowcases, when turned the right way out had hairs all over them. Hairs, it turns out were a recurring theme as we also found them stuck to the wall in the bathroom. That said, it's pretty well situated and the communal spaces are indeed nice.There's a kitchen you can use and the offer of free tea and coffee is a lovely one.
