Places to stay in Santiago


Camino(s) past & future
Sept-October (2009), Sept-Oct (2013)

They cater to pilgrims and I had a nice room with bath down the hall for 20E. When I came back a week later they "upgraded" me to a room with a private bath and four beds ( one for each night I stayed) for an extra 5E a night.

Good value and close to everything. The owner also speaks passable English.
