TravelPod Member ReviewsMeiga Backpackers Santiago de Compostela
Couldn't have picked a better hostel for the weekend. Many of the visitors were on the tail end of their several week or month long walks to Santiago de Compostela. I enjoyed the opportunity to have a family at this hostel. Everyone could eat meals together and there was a nice informal area to hang out. Would definitely recommend. Staff is very helpful.

We taste a tiny bit of each and are amazed to find it is tasty before Jonny heads back in to buy another of each “to keep us going”. We then head on towards Boiro, again successfully playing hotter/colder with the motorhome app to find our place for the ...
... on the way to the city of Santiago de Compostela. It is real! We are here and as ready as we will ever be. The alarm is set for 5 am so that by 6 we are in the lobby for breakfast and the beginning of our day. I have great big butterflies in my stomach but I cannot be more excited either! Tomorrow I become a pilgrim in the country where my father grew up. I will see now what he saw then. I can't wait to ...
... ever know.
Judy here - SHE DID IT! I am so proud of her. I am so amazed at how powerfully Cathy did this walk. She was made to do this and she conquered it without a blip. That said, I am SO happy to have her back with me. My outlook has risen with the return of my companion (even if she was shaking her fist at me as she walked towards me - she couldn't find the 'damn fountain' that was to be our meeting place.) Sisters! ...
