santa hospederia teresita (SANTA DOMINGO DE LA CALZADA)

santa hospederia teresita (SANTA DOMINGO DE LA CALZADA) is the hostel run by Cistercian nuns to the rear of albergue.

I'm currently planning my "second leg" of the Camino. Last time I stopped in SANTA DOMINGO DE LA CALZADA.
At this stage I think I'll be arriving in Santa Domingo late on a Sunday evening by bus, to start walking the following morning.
I assume the pilgrim accomodation will be full ( June 29 ), so I'm wondering if a phone call in advance to the above will secure me a bed in advance?
I see from another post that "Lismany" stayed here last May /June.
i would appreciate any comments.

Buen Camino

HI

I think the CSJ guide is invaluable and a bargain at £6:

http://www.csj.org.uk/acatalog/The_CSJ_ ... in_23.html

It says: Hospederia Santa Teresita, aka Hospederia Cistercience, Pinar 2, Tele: 941 340 700 is recommended and good value.

Beware that it is run principally as a holiday home for elderly people and the doors are locked at 11pm - this may be relevant depending on when you are going to arrive.

There are other hostals listed - I stayed in one just a few weeks ago and I just phoned ahead and booked.

Good luck.

Thanks for that Johnnie. I had phone number from John Brierly giude but no mention of elderly people; although wouldn't matter.
Which one did you pre-book in Santa Domingo?

Buen Camino.

Hi - The Hostal del Rio - just round the corner from the albergue. The hospitalera also recommended it.

Don't assume it will be full. I arrived at Sto Domingo to re-start my Camino on 23 July 2005 late on the Saturday evening - my bus from Burgos arrived at 20h45 - and after asking around was directed to the Albergue Casa del Santo run by the Confradia de Sto Domingo. There was plenty of room, and the beds were not bunk beds - oh, the luxury!!

I remember the welcome being warm, there was a small garden at the back where I saw a fellow pilgrim I'd met the year before in Arres & Sanguesa, and there is no need for an alarm the next morning - the cock crowing was a lovely way to start the day.

If you need it, you'll find the Burgos-Logroño bus timetable here

To be honest, I have never found much problem with accommodation, even walking late-July/early-August. Only had to sleep outside once, and that was after arriving at Ribadiso at 19h30 after 37km from Ventas. I had arrived at Ventas the same time the day before, and got the dormitory to myself - there are 38 beds in the village (in 2 albergues) and there was one couple, a family of 6, and me. I also arrived at Fonfria at 18h30, again no problem, and people were arriving at 20h30 and there were still beds.

¡Suerte!
Mike

OK, thanks for that Mike.
I'm now remembering that everything falls into place on the Camino!
I've checked bus routes from Santander to Santa Domingo.
