What is the accommodation costs on the Camino de Santiago?

The question was:

Can you tell me if I am right in thinking that it’s possible to get accommodation along the Camino Frances for as little as 5 euros/night? This is what I’d been told and budgeting for (starting around the start of October 2012), but reading through the forum, I see a lot of places for 25 euros and up. I’ve looked through Guy’s (?) wonderful spreadsheet and it seems things are a lot more expensive than I thought.

The question was:

I know there are a million hotels in Santiago but I’d appreciate a personal recommendation for a 3 or 4 star hotel near the cathedral.

Are reservations really necessary?

Are reservations really necessary?

The question was:

I really, really, really don’t want to book ahead for accommodation, because for me this brings the pilgrimage back to being like any other trip where I have to plan and make phone calls and book accommodation ahead of time. I just want to wake, walk and find somewhere to stay wherever I arrive at the end of my day. And I don’t want to rush to be somewhere by 1pm so that I can secure a bed. I want to walk without timeframes.

Is this feasible at this time of year (May, June, July)?
