    Good morning,

    after a mail of Laurie regarding Pension Paris' closing, the Associación de Amigos del Camino de Santiago de la Comunidad Valencia established contact with the following accomodation in Valencia to give customized service:

    CENTER VALENCIA YOUTH HOSTEL
    Calle Samaniego, 18
    ES-46003 Valencia
    www.center-valencia.com
    Telephon: 00 34 963 914 915

    Pilgrims who book at this albergue and need guide and/or credencial, can send us (info@vieiragrino.com) mail some days before arriving requesting them, and we shall carry them to the albergue.

    Buen camino
    Jean-Luc

    Great news, Jean-Luc.

    You and your association have been extremely helpful and friendly, hoping to meet you in person on a return trip to the Levante.

    I've made this a "sticky" post, so that it will be at the top for new Levante pilgrims. Many thanks for your help.

    Ahhh, that's a shame. For the future pilgrims I hope you'll find another location. As I've already wrote in another thread Levante deserves some promotion.

    Thanks for doing all this, Jean-Luc!

    Yes, that is really too bad.

    Just hunting around a bit, I found this well located place with single rooms for 25 €. http://www.hostalelrincon.com-valencia.com/ Reviews are decent.

    I know @gracethepilgrim will be there soon, maybe she has some better ideas! I am still sad about Vanessa and the Hostal Paris, that was just perfect!

    I'm so happy to see this year's almost constant flow of forum members on Levante. Really good thing for this beautiful and contemplative Camino :)

    I recommend the Pension Alicante. It is near the train station and kind of near Amigos de Levante office, and in the central part of town. Rooms between 20 and 25€. Great value (excellent reviews too)!

    I have stayed here multiple times, recently having returned to Valencia.
    You need to book ahead to make sure there is a room but no credit card needed. Contact Info:

    On septembre the 1st, The Amigos in Valencia switched to winter timetable:
    the office is open on Wednesday 10AM-13:30AM and Friday 5PM-8:30PM.

    As far as we can know, two French men started Levante yesterday, and a man from Scotland and a lady from Denmark started last Saturday. Also a Spanish man will start soon, but will switch to Camino de la Lana (Wool Way) after Almansa.
    Buen Camino a todos

    Hola, Jean-Luc,

    Thanks for the info. And I bet we are all completely OK with using original Spanish names for Caminos: Wool Way = Ruta de la Lana ;)

    Hi pilgrims, here is new info.
    As from October the 1st, our Asociación moves to a new office: Calle Jerónimo Muñoz, 32.
    It is still next to the way, but 5 mn farer from the center of the city. 21617880_1589711734413561_4731063366861393259_n.jpg Nueva sede 3.jpg

    On the other hand we received pilgrims starting the Camino de Levante this week: 2 young German ladies, and a couple from Poland.

    Buen Camino
    Jean-Luc

    Post data of Saturday: two more visits at the office yesterday: a man from Oregon, USA, starting today, and a man from Valencia-city starting from home his first Camino (refresh to my mind my same experience three years ago)
