Camino Primitivo Accommodation

Where to sleep on the Primitive Way

I leave here the municipal hostels that you will find during the Primitive Way, plus some private ones where I stayed. Everyone has a small comment and a vote. I also leave you a link, so you can search for other types of accommodation easily and quickly.

Difficult in 2015, you did not have to get up early to be the first to arrive. I do not know what the situation will be like now.

Generally, and at prices of my Camino, public hostels cost €5 per night in Asturias, and €6 in Galicia.

To facilitate the search, I have grouped the accommodations according to my twelve stages.

    Domingo, the hospitaler, is an example of what is a hospitaler authentic. His spirit makes that stopping at Saint Joan of Villapañada are the best way to pass the first night. The installations are not luxurious, but you won’t realize.
