Looking for hostel/hotel near to bus stop from Finisterre to Santiago

Time of past OR future Camino
Going for Camino walk this Nov.
Dear friends, would you please recommend hotel/hostel that is very near or located to the bus stop from Finisterre to Santiago? I missed my bus from Lavacolla to Sarria today because I don't speak the language and people I asked couldn't speak English. I waited for the bus at the wrong side as per the advise of the local people there. Though I came very early I missed the bus, waiting at the road side. I hope not to miss the bus at Finisterra. Thanks.

Cabo Sport is right beside the bus stop. Registration is in the sports clothing store.

Unlike the bus stop in Lavacolla, there should be quite a few other people waiting for the bus in Fisterra.

Were you able to get your credential in Sarria?
Yes. Thanks. :) I have just arrived in my accommodation in Sarria after getting to credential. It is available at Mesons O Tapa. Most places are closed here.

Hello thank you, so I do not need to cross the road right? The bus stop is on the same side of the road with Cabo Sport? Thanks.
Yes, it is on the same side.
There was no one in the ticket booth when I was there last year, so have cash available. There will be a lot of people there, have all your gear organized, trekking poles inside your pack or strapped to the exterior, be prepared to shove your bag in as quickly as possible for the mad scramble.

Hello. Thank you. I did some reading and heard that the bus fr Finister to Santiago is not that pleasant. Is that safe? Do you suggest me to end my walk in Muxia or Finister? I have bought my bus ticket, the Flix bus 11.45aam that reach Santiago at 2.30pm, 3 pm journey, to catch 5.45pm flight to Madrid. But it is ok for me to forfeit it since it costs me only Eur7. I planned to stay 2 nights at Finister. Thanks.

Sorry, I have added the link now to my post above. I really can't make any recommendation. I haven't stayed in Finisterre, and besides, there are many other considerations.

Personally, I would want to get to Santiago earlier, especially you need to arrive in Madrid to catch another flight. But that is just my preference.

Expanding on @trecile comments about the bus in Muxia, when I was there in June the morning bus filled up and some pilgrims and unhappy locals where left behind. Most had formed a line to board the bus, but the driver had everyone put there packs in the storage under the bus so being in line actually put you at a disadvantage.

In 2017, I stayed at Albergue de Peregrinos! I remember you could look on to the bus stop from one of the windows!
Couldn’t get any closer!
The Santiago bus can get quite busy, I think I pre booked my ticket!

Albergue Cabo de Vila; 4 minute walk to the bus stop. I have stayed there 3 extended times, including this past October and really enjoy it there. It meets all my needs. fondly sandi

There are fewer buses leaving from Muxía to Santiago, and the bus stop is trickier to find than in Fisterra.
There is nothing dangerous about the bus from Fisterra.
I thought the bus stop in Muxia was very easy to find. Clearly marked on the main road and outside a seafood restaurant, east of the O Porto bar. Google maps will identify its location.

I was in both places very recently. Muxia smaller and quieter and a short walk out to the lighthouse and church at the end of the road is not to be missed. If I was going again, my choice would be Muxia.

It’s a very small place. I think most places are close (with 5-10 minutes) of post office.

I stayed here it was fantastic! Right on the water, included breakfast. Not as cheap as an Albergue but if you have the budget, it was a great place to end!

We stayed at the Hotel Vida Finisterre in August just up from the bus stop. The stop is opposite Bar O Canario and buses in both directions pull into the stop there. The bus to Santiago that we took was great, tickets booked at the kiosk at the Pilgrims office in Santiago.

Oh, that would be a problem since there aren't other buses. Ouch! But it's probably not an issue in off-seasons. I've taken the bus from Muxia twice in the spring and the bus wasn't very full.

Requirement that you have walked to Finnisterra, to stay 1 night.

There’s only one pick up/drop off location in Finisterre. It’s not dangerous at all. Muxia has an inbound side of the road and outbound side of the road but pretty easy to figure it out. Bus frequency to/from Muxia is pretty limited so make sure it coincides with the rest of your plans. We had to take a taxi to SdC to get there earlier than the bus would get is there.

I spent 1 night in Muxia and 2 in Finisterre. I liked Muxia more. It was a much prettier location and I found the food better :D

My friend and I stayed at Alen do Mar: https://hotelalendomar.com/ which is just a bit outside of town by the sea and within steps of the first bus stop on its way to Santiago. The hotel is modern, comfortable and reasonable with breakfast included, which satisfied even my forever-hungry friend :cool: They speak English and give you very good instructions where to stand to wait for the bus to Santiago.

I can really recommend Albergue Cabo da Vila in Fisterra after having stayed there 5 times in my 8 Camino years. 200 meters down the street heading the bus station. Buy the ticket a day before. And remember: more busses a day than from Muxia.
