    Hi,

    I will be arrive St. Jean Pied de Port roughly at 10.30 at night. Can anyone please suggest a good hostel that I can book that would be able to accomodate my arrival time as I believe most hostels close at 10pm ?

    Many thanks for your assistance.

    Dear Annaree,

    I will stay at “L’Esprit du Chemin” on June 19th. I contacted them by email and they were *very* responsive. Being way too optimistic on my connection plane->train, I realized that my planning had been, yes you've guessed it, hmm, let's say *optimistic*:) Called them up and they swiftly re-arranged the booking 'til the day after. No glitches! As I mentioned they seem to be very friendly and "service minded" and I've read alot of positive comments about them.

    I do believe they'll be able to accomodate you although you arrive late. Just make sure that they're aware of this fact...

    Take care!

    Outside of late arrivals do pilgrims have to 'book' or call ahead for a place in the albergues? or hostels?

    Some book using the list on:

    Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port

    I never have, and have never had a proplem. The Pilgrim Office is the first port of call and they will give you a simple map of where the various albergues are. I always stay at the same one as it is tucked away and always has room.

    I have not had a problem in July before, so just go first to the Pilgrim Office to get your Pilgrim Passport if you have not already obtained one, and they will give you a list of places offering a bed for the night and a map of where they are.
