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.

... which we were not overly prepared for - this is not the Spanish weather we expected) and we followed a busy highway for the entire first day of our journey. Thankfully it got better, much better. After the first day the weather improved, the scenery improved, we met some great people along the way (everyone is so friendly), and our spirits were lifted.
Every night (except 2 - we needed the comfort of a proper bed and our own ...
