Hi everyone,
I should probably know this 😬, but which albergues in Santiago let you sleep in and hang out during the day - i.e., albergues which don't have a lockout time for cleaning? We have some friends coming and since we can't host them they'll be reserving accommodations...but with jet lag they'll need a place that allows them to sleep in.

EDIT: They'll be on a tighter budget, about 15€ a night or less.

THANKS!

Hi, Nate/Faith,
why not book them in with Jose Ramon (the fruit shop man at the end of your street) in his place in Rua Franco? Perfect location! He has rooms with beds (2-5 in each room) for a very reasonable price, and your friends get keys so they can come and go as they please. Say hello from me!

Tell them that deprivation of sleep is among the gifts of the Camino, and that they must now embrace the first of the Apostle's gifts. Then Youtube their facial expression.

Although San Martn Pinario has regular tourist rooms it also has more than a few albergue rooms; all of the 4th floor provides albergue accommodation! The included hotel/albergue breakfast are the same and the hot meal at lunch/dinner always delicious. Prices may have risen slightly but the following post which I wrote a few years ago should still be valid.

"I agree that San Martin Pinario is a VERY good stop in Santiago!

Most pilgrim rooms are singles at 23 Euros, but there are a few double pilgrim rooms and a few rooms with more beds. Ask about these when you email your query. for space to this address >> reservas@sanmartinpinario.eu.
or

Do NOT use the on-line booking form which is only for more expensive tourist accommodation.

I have stayed in simple pilgrim rooms in 2011 and December 2012, 2013, 2014 and always found it comfortable and most convenient. Added features are the fact that they are open 24/7 so that you can arrive at anytime, the obliging desk staff are multi-lingual, WiFi is free, there are multiple public spaces for casual conversation and the restaurant (open to all) serves a very good 3 course lunch or dinner with wine for only 12 Euros. What more does a tired pilgrim need?"

Current price for a single pilgrim roon with breakfast and private shower/toilet is 25€ per night.

Thanks for these tips so far!

I should clarify that their budget will be on the lower end, probably around 15€ per person per night. (They're young, around 20 years old.) I'll edit my original post.

Take a phone call to Jose Ramon. Depending on no. of persons, they may have a very nice price. Tell him I said so :cool:;)

Faith,

I've stayed a few days at Roots and Boots and been able to hang out during the day and I really enjoy staying at Hospedería via Lucia (old Convent) which also would work too although it is a little farther walk on the other side of Parque da Alameda.

Ah, I see now that they want to sleep in. I would go with Hospedería via Lucia.

I always stay there when I arrive in Santiago. I get a pilgrim room and yes last October/November it was 25 Euros a night including breakfast. Can't get wifi in a pilgrims room but you can get it in the lobby. Last year I was having breakfast and looked up and there was a dear friend who I walked with the year before on the Camino Portuguese. He had just finished the Via De La Plata and I had just completed the Norte. You never know who you will run into. It was great to see him.
For booking I aways call directly to desk if I can. I dont think that Booking or Hotels.com offer the pilgrim rooms on their website. It is by far easier to call if you can. You may have to call a few times depending on how busy they are

I've just booked a tiny apartment in Santiago on Air bnb. We are three "mature" females and although we are planning to stay in albergues on the Portuguese Camino we've decided to add a night of "luxury" for £69 at the end. This gives us the option to sort ourselves out / do washing / prepare luggage and food for the next day's long train home. This option is likely to be over their budget but it's worth looking on Air bnb.
