About us

Our hostel is located in the old town of Caldas de Reis. It is a small town with a great history. There are references of settlers in this area since the Iron Age, since it is in a privileged geographical situation that has always been part of the communication routes between the north and south of Galicia. This small town has a small crack that provides us with thermal water with healing properties, and the Romans were aware of it. Given the importance of this fact, added to the exclusive location, they baptized it as “Aquis Celenis”, name from which the current one derives, and in addition, they granted it the administrative category of “municipium”, making it an official stop on the Via Romana XIX. And it is in the twelfth century, since Queen Dna. Urraca de Castela had a defensive tower in the town where they spent long periods of time, it was renamed Caldas de Rex (currently Caldas de Reis), being a town of realengo and abadengo. Today we still have relics that our ancestors left us. Places of special interest and located on the road itself are the Church of Santa María, of Romanesque origin. The Hot Thermal Water Source, as well as the laundry room that is supplied with that same water (this one a little separated from the road). And the Roman Bridge over the Bermaña River. Other places of interest are the great Botanical Garden and its “Carballeira”, declared a picturesque site and historic garden in 1962, which has more than 100 botanical species from different parts of the world, located in the heart of the town. This gives way to a walk along the river that takes us to the wonder of nature such as the Segade Waterfalls, where you can enjoy the local flora and fauna, as well as how you can cool off in its waters on cooler days. auspicious. In them are located the ruins of the first hydroelectric power plant in Galicia, a milestone at the time. And a few meters further up, following the riverbed, we find the Roman bridge of A Baxe from the 1st century.


Our facilities are located on the Portuguese Way to Santiago de Compostela, in a house that is more than 150 years old. A building with a peculiar history since it belonged to the great family doctor “Don Pepito Sexto”, who was in charge of caring for the majority of the population of the Villa in the first half of the 20th century. We are born from the need that exists in hostels to individualize privacy without dispensing with the collective concept. It was born as a B & B kapuseru hoteru or pod hostel (Hotel Capsule) without disregarding the charm of the local architecture.

For this we have designed the facilities to offer our guests the best conditions for their well-being.
