Is this the smallest official Albergue on the Camino. It is on the Sureste and is the town of Petrer about 46 km from Alicante one day after Orito . It is just one Bunk bed. It has a shower and toilet. It is an official Albergue Municipal. I include 2 photographs. Stayed there on 8th May this year. There is no other Albergue in the town IMG_0112 (1280x960).jpg IMG_0113 (1024x1009).jpg

That is tiny.
I stayed in the 7 bunk (14 persons) Corcubion albergue on the Camino de Finisterra and thought that was small until I stayed in the 3 bunk (6 persons) auberge municipal in Aulnay Charente Maritime France

The smallest albergue I stayed in was Albergue Estrella Guia in Puente la Reina which Eroski shows as having just 8 beds in two rooms, but there was another room with a double matrimonial bed in a separate room, that a late arriving couple got. The wonderful hospitalera Natalia made the stay special, even though we all had to share one bathroom.

Hi
On the Voie Littorale (Bordeaux to Irun):

One bed in a tiny caravan.

(Actually there was a double bed as well, in a very cramped space, difficult to climb into. But just possible to sleep 3 altogether, if very good friends!)

Actually, I see two bunks. Do we have any albergue out there with ONE bunk? Anyone, anyone? Thanks for reading.
Sailor, I would call this one bunk sleeps 2, there are no other beds in this Albergue. I slept there, believe me there is only one.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm planning to start from Alicante with my fiance in Feb 2019. The poor man will be in shock from the walking so I have to be kind as far as accommodation options go at least in the first week.

I think Peg and I win this one. The Albergue La Senda (formerly El Tesín) in Rabanal del Camino on the Camino Frances has, just a bit up the road and on the other side, a camping field with a shed for bicycle storage. But next to that is a cabin divided in two, bedroom and bathroom (but not connected with an inside door.) The bedroom was just big enough for a chair, one double bed and space enough on each side of the bed to get in comfortably. The bathroom was private, not for use by the campers. We were given a key to each room. At 15 euros it was the deal of the camino.

Donna, you can and should ring ahead for this Albergue. If you require any more information about the Sureste PM me.

Ahh Fleur......I used to have a pitch on the market at Aulnay , right in front of the Auberge and often used to have a few words with pilgrims as they came round the market to buy their "casse croute "

But that is in addition to the other bunks in two rooms in the main building.
I remember looking at that option when I stayed there, but it was a cold rainy day with a strong wind and I didn't relish the idea of going outside to use the bathroom in the middle of the night!

Don't have a picture of it, but the albergue at San Bol, which is just past Hornillos Del Camino is pretty tiny and austere. Picture attached is where you merge off the main trail to get to it. It is literally by itself in the middle of a field. Camino - Spain - April - 2015 079.jpg

I remember this area really well ... austere is a good description!

Hello altogether! On the Camino del Norte, a campground in Islares in Cantabria offered this gem of a shelter for two Pilgrims. Two single beds, "nothing more and nothing less", to quote the lady at the reception. Certainly my tiniest "Albergue"-Experience! Check out the foto below!

I've had morning coffee at St Bol and topped up water from the outdoor fountain. How many beds does it have?
