    Albergues on the Camino Francés

    There are over 450 albergues along the camino. And the number is increasing every year. In this summary a selection has been made of the most favorite albergues, based on the reviews from previous year's pilgrims, as well as on my own experience. The reviews were found on German, English, French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish websites and forums as well as in guides such as 'the CaminoGuide.net', 'das gelbe Heft' from the Jakobsfreunde Paderborn, the Camino Francés from the Confraternity of St. James etc.

    Just what I was looking for ....look forward to testing out many of your recommended favorites. Would also trade a little comfort for a "special" place.

    There are many pretty awful Albergues so staying in a recommended place really improves your Camino experience. I would add the Albergue Amanecer in Villarmentero de Campos which is a lovely rural Albergue in a small village with geese, donkeys etc in the grounds and a beautiful atmosphere. Communal evening meal with vegetarian option.

    I used this resource this year for the majority of my accommodation all the way from SJPdP to Santiago and there were no times that i thought " why am i am in this dive?" A fellow pilgrim that I bumped into in Santiago told me that he and his brother had stayed in several dives.
    Several fellow pilgrims started asking me where I was heading too the following night and followed my lead. I was often thanked for recommending a particular place.
    It is impossible to stop at all the recommended places and sometimes it means a longer walk or cutting the day short to stay at a highly thought of Albergue.
    However, I must get in touch with the Black Dog because there are three more Albergues that should be in there! Two are new and another a hidden gem!
