Where you see Bar Los Emigrantes the albergue is up the alley to its right. The Camino turns left here. Further up the hill there is a small Spar supermarket and a pharmacy to the right of the Camino in the walled town through Puerta del Reys. Also in the walled town on Plaza de España there's a shop, a bank and a bakery. Cafétería Las Picotas, on the Camino on the left at the start of the village, does decent food. 

Galisteo is an impressive hilltop walled town. Its walls date from the period of Muslim rule and are very well preserved. You can walk along the tops of the walls although in places it's not for the faint hearted.
