reservations recommended for Santiago in August?

Hi Everyone:

I am heading off on my Camino on July 11 from SJPD, and will be in Santiago around mid-August I hope. Given that it is the busiest month is it wise to make reservations in Santiago itself? I prefer not to be on the sidewalk or in the park on my last night or two. Any advice from previous August travelers?

Thanks, Bill

if you couldn't find accommodation in Santiago you could return to the refuge at Monte del Gozo and make that your base.
I didn't stay there myself but my guide book states that the first night there is free. The guide mentions 2000 places. I can't imagine it's ever full.

Buen Camino


It is not a problem to find accomodation in Santiago in August. There are MANY hotels... 2 or 3 pilgrims albergues... and many private hostals/pensions.
