Albergues near Santiago airport with late checkin

Time of past OR future Camino

I will arrive in Santiago on Friday evening, potentially quite late (11 PM). I am planning to sleep in Santiago on Friday night and then either take a bus for the Camino Ingles or to walk to Finisterre.

I walked the Camino before but I don't know if I will be able to find accommodation in Santiago so late, especially because I won't have yet a Compostela. Any suggest on:

1)cheap accommodation that may accept someone to check in quite late
2)how to reach the city from the airport when is late

Cheers!

I was wondering the same thing. I'm also flying into Santiago and will arrive at 11:10. Thanks for the link, Don.

From the webpage:

"Buses run every 20 to 30 minutes all days of the week between 07:00 hours and 23:00 hours. One-way tickets cost only € 1.00 and are available from the bus driver. Children up to the age of 18 can travel for a reduced fare and pay € 0.55 for a bus ride from the airport to the city or vice versa. You can also buy a ticket for 10, 20 or 30 bus rides called Bono. If you choose this option, the price for a single journey (maximum 60 minutes) is only € 0.60. A Bono card can be bought on board the bus and costs € 3.00, this amount will be refunded when the card is returned, but only if it’s in good condition. Please consult website and timetable bus line 6 for more information."

Looks like there's just enough time to catch one of the last buses to the center of Santiago.

I was planning to get a private room so I won't disturb people at midnight when I get in, but I haven't found a place with a decent price. Seems prices are up since I was there in March. Maybe I'll take another look at The Last Stamp. I've stayed there before and always liked it.

2 bus might be tighter


Good chance you will find others to share a taxi. Look for other arrivals with backpacks.
Thanks, this is very useful. I am a bit worried because on the website of the Santiago's airport there is just a reference to a bus company called Monbus. Unfortunately, on Monbus's website, I can only see busses to Lugo and Coruna and none to Santiago center.
I have also consider to stay in an albergue close to the Aiport (i.e. in Lavacolla) but I am not sure on how safe is to walk in the dark (I am not afraid of crime more of traffic)

So if I'm reading that right, the last bus leaves the airport at 11pm, is that how you read it?
No, I believe that there are 3 more buses after 11pm, i.e., at 11:30pm, 12 midnight and 12:30am.
