Accommodation in San Sebastian


New Member
Hi there

I am starting my Camino in San Sebastian and have noticed that the Albergue is only open from July-August. I will be arriving on the 22nd May. Does anyone have some tips regarding nice affordable places to stay as I would like to book my first night before I start my journey on the 23rd.

Thanks so much.

When I walked from Irun to San Sebastian last august, in the albergue in Irun the hospitaleros gave me a map from San Sebastian where it was possible to find the albergue. Impossible if not, because San Sebastian is not a pilgrim-oriented city and people only know where the youth albergue is, with it's particular rules, different than the pilgrim albergue are.

Buen Camino, I'm sorry for my usual delay answering posts,
