Greetings,
My wife and I prefer to stay in private rooms so in the past have mostly stayed in hotels, pensions, casa rurales, etc. But I like the feeling and camaraderie of albergues. Is there a guide, website or app (like booking.com) that would allow for a search of albergues with private rooms?
Thanks, Steven

Hello there!
Where do you start your Camino? I have walked the Camino last fall from SJPDP to Finisterra and in St Jean I got a list at the pilgrim's office with all the albergues on the path to Santiago and further to Finisterra. Just ask at the pilgrim's office wherever you start :) On that list it also indicated if albergues offered private rooms. I have made use of this list every day finding the municipal albergues and also a couple of times to find private rooms. Worked out perfectly! :)

Thanks. We walked the same as you last May. This time we are just going from Burgos to Leon (next October). Is there a place in Burgos that might have that list? Or is there a digital version?

In addition to the suggestions above, Brierley’s guides will have a “+” sign following the name of the albergue to indicate that they have private rooms. Also, the descriptions of the albergues in the Wise Pilgrim generally mention whether they have private rooms.

Check out Buen Camino app or Wise Pilgrim. They will show you prices and if you check out the symbols it is easy to tell which ones offer private rooms. There are lots of hostels that will offer small rooms with two single beds and usually a shared bathroom that would not be much more than two beds in a private albergue.

Like others have said above, on my Camino many used also the Camino app which also worked for albergues. That list should be available also in Burgos though at the pilgrim's office - maybe you can also ask them directly? :)

Is there a Pilgrim Office in San Sebastián?
