Don’t be worried you will find a place to sleep. It may not be the accommodations you like but you will find a place. Or you can pre- book your accommodations.
Buen Camino🥾
I did try to pre-book for mid Sept. I am an older person and not one for bunkbeds
and hostels... :)
 
I have a group coming through on September 24th. I just peeked at Hotel Roncesvalles and September does look a bit booked out. https://hotelroncesvalles.roncesvalles.es/reservas

If you are looking for private accommodations you could check La Posada or Casa Sabina as well https://laposada.roncesvalles.es/01-fechas-de-reserva/ and https://casasabina.roncesvalles.es/galeria-fotografica/

You can always make a reservation at the albergue, I would be amazed if they are full already https://alberguederoncesvalles.com/solicitud-de-reserva/

Please pardon my ignorance, this hotel is the famous one I see in all the YouTube videos with 200 beds?
 
Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).
...and ship it to Santiago for storage. You pick it up once in Santiago. Service offered by Casa Ivar (we use DHL for transportation).
3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
I, and most I'd hope, am willing to trade any bottom bunk I get for a top one should someone need it.
I spent every night in a top bunk one year because I was always the last to arrive. I didn't mind then I as I like the view from the top, and bed bugs can't fall on you 🤣, but now I am old I can still get up, but I struggle to get back down, so really appreciate it when someone will swop with me.

Yes, it is less likely that bedbugs may reach you in an upper bunk with a metal frame and not against a wall. Of course this is if you don't bring them with you or the aren't already on the top bunk.

They climb wood easily. Plastic and metal less easily. Someone had posted they liked frilly soft furnishings and decoration which makes me cringe on the Camino as do albergue blankets that everyone always asks for...
 
Is someone starting Camino Frances on May 31st and in need of a place to stay in St Jean Pied de Porte on May 30?

I just received an email from Joseph at Beilari Aterpea asking me to confirm a reservation by 3pm on May 30. Otherwise, he will give the reservation to someone in need of a place.

Interestingly, I did not make any reservations, not at Beilari or anywhere else in St Jean Pied de Porte; not this year at least for I am not doing the Frances until maybe next year (2025) at the earliest.

If someone is looking for place at SJPdP for May 30, apparently there is one available, but under my email [personal email address removed by moderator]. I guess whoever is interested can contact Joseph at Beilari Aterpea to avail of the reservation. Buen Camino!

It seems obvious that there is an error of some sort, and the best thing to do would be to reply to Joseph and say so. Then he can manage the requests that he probably already has.

Is there a list of albergues that also have private rooms
on the Camino Frances? Gracias.
I walked the Camino Frances from St Jean Pied de Port in 2013 then began this from Somport in 2022 that I enjoyed even more and there were far less pilgrims and accommodation easy to find at Albergues etc without needing to book. Even though beginning at Somport is a tad longer, I feel the scenery is more beautiful plus there's the added bonus that there's no daunting first day walk to Roncesvalles as one is beginning on top of the Pyrenees and its mainly downhill from there. In late August this year I'm planning to walk again - this time beginning at Irun and walking another of the ways less travelled from there to Burgos on the Camino Vasco.
