Pilgrim Hostels

Albergues and Refugios are hostels – but hostels only for pilgrims. Therefore you need a Pilgrims Passport to stay in one. Pilgrims passports are issued at quite a number of places. Firstly, from your home country confraternity, if you are a member; at some Albergues (cost is normally only a few euro). St Jean Pied de Port, Roncesvalles, and Pamplona, where most people start are the main centers where pilgrims passports are issued..

This list albergues not comprehensive – it is impossible to compile a completely up to date list of Albergues. New albergues are being opened all the time. Private Albergues will be found in addition to what is listed below.

Please remember that almost all the people that will greet you in an Albergue are volunteers. This is their way of giving back to the Camino de Santiago, please treat them with the respect they are due, without them the Way of St James would be much more difficult for all.

The facilities vary greatly. Some albergues are warm and cozy (Grannon), – some are old school buildings that lack any atmosphere, some have washing machines, but mostly it will have to be done by hand. Every one which I stayed in had hot showers. Most have kitchens, but in most towns there will be a bar that serves the “Pilgrim menu”, this is usually cheaper, but with little choice, (about €7 to €10). However some Albergues, like Granon, will serve a communal evening meal, (donation and washing dishes, if so inclined). A lot of Albergues now have internet connection.

The house rules vary – but most will be open from 4pm and close in the evening at ten or eleven – beware at some they will lock you out. Some will wake you at six in the morning – and normally out by 7am. Pilgrims are allowed one nights stay; unless medical grounds force the person to rest, this happens, sore knees, feet, etc.

The closer you come to Santiago, the busier the Albergues, patience is a requirement not an option. However it all is an incredible experience, see it for what it is, a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.

    Just want to thank you for sharing your experience (s) en El Camino de Santiago Compostela! We have been thinking of walking El Camino de Santiago Compostela for a few years! This was actually the first time I checked it out. Very informative and helpful….thank you. By the way when is the best time of the year, weatherwise, to walk El Camino de Santiago Compostela?

    Hi, I like you web very much. My brother and me will open next month a new albergue in Negreira. (Camino Finisterre). This is the information if you want to visit us. Thanks a lot y buen camino.

    Very soon the Camino from Santiago-Finistere/Muxía, will have a new pilgrims Albergue (one star) in the Council area of Negreira. Two old Galician stone houses situated in beautiful Logrosa have been lovingly restored to offer all the comforts a pilgrim would need.
    In a charming place, surrounded by nature in a rural setting where the walker can relax, rest and enjoy typical Galician cuisine.
    An Albergue of low capacity, with only 20 places offering pilgrims a better stay for those who don´t want to stay in noisy and large Albergues. We have 5 double rooms, 2 singles and 2 rooms with 4 bunk-beds each. It´s important to book early.
    The Albergue has heating, TV, payphone, internet access, laundry, dining room, large garden, reading room/library, living room with fireplace, closed area for bicycles, field for horses, outdoor dining, shared bathrooms.

    Hi> I was recently at the Albergue Vilorio de Rioja. It has only 12 beds, and requires a reservation. There are no services in this village of 28 residents, so the Hospitliarros make dinner and breakfast for a donation. It’s the most wonderful albergue….lovely and quit. Acasio and Orietta are terrific hosts.

  5. Useful information! Some prices have changed, though. For instance l’Esprit du Chemin (St Jean Pied de Port) only has a half board option for 26 € (instead of the above mentioned 8€).
