Any recommendations welcome.
Something that opens early would be great.
Thank you
Not a hostel but wonderful service nonetheless is Hotel Capital Galicia, just a couple blocks from the Bus Station and the Mall is just as close in anoth direction. Reuben and his Father are very accommodating hosts.

A month ago, I stayed just one night this time and they washed my clothes for me, all for 30 euro. They also helped with printing airline tickets and confirming flights. Love it every time I go.

2020? Looks like.... nowhere! 😁
San Martin Pinario, I think, is the best but you may have to book ahead of time. Right next to the cathedral and nice facilities. Private rooms available too.

Depends when it is. It is (sadly) booked out at the moment.

Albergue Blanco

I second this nomination. Very close to the cathedral (I could see it out my window), a person at the desk 24 hours who will let you in and out and... Elevators! There is a washing machine and dryer and they will also store your stuff if you want to take a smaller bag to walk to Finisterre.

I stayed at seminario menor..I enjoyed my short stay. It was clean
We stayed there in 2016. Arrived before 11.00 we were able to book two single rooms on the top floor. Very inexpensive. As cleaning was still ongoing we were told to leave our rucksack in the lockers. Very reasonable, clean, shared bathrooms and a very useful shop and kitchen dining area in the basement.

Hotel Oxford Suites about 50m from the Cathedral. We found a spotless room with 4 beds for our family of 4 on a special deal on booking.com.

Seminario Menor without question. Big. Inexpensive private rooms. Large communal eating area with plenty of food available.

Roots and boots and last stamp are great but it is best to pre book especially if you want to stay at the last stamp and next door has great churros

I just stayed 2 nights at San Martin Pinerio--not long enough! Be sure to tell them you want a Pilgrim room--they have singles with their own baths and it looks like doubles as well. Great breakfast buffet is included in the 25 Euros.
