    Hey David - As I best remember, the Pilgrim's Office is open until 22:00. As you will be arriving relatively late, do be sure to reserve a bed in advance. Upon arrival in SJPP, I'd head straight for the Pilgrim's Office for your Credencial and other handouts they have (i.e., list of albergues, maps, etc.). If you don't already have your shell, you can get that there as well. The volunteers at the Office will take good care of you. Once finished there, go check into your albergue or hotel. Buen Camino!

    Hey David - Here is a website thst I think you will find quite helpful: gronze.com. You can look at each stage of the Camino you are walking and pull up a list of albergues, hostels, and hotels in particular towns along the Way. A number of them are linked directly to Booking.com for reservations. More frequently, I just contacted an albergue by email and requested a bed. So, for example, just do a Google search of "albergues in St. Jean Pied de Port" and you'll get a pretty comprehensive list of accomodations. Here's a LIST of albergues that I found on the Caminoteca website: http://caminoteca.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/List-of-Albergues-2016.pdf

    When I was in SJPP last year, I stayed at the Ultreia Gite d'Etape right down from the pilgrims office. Great location, lovely accommodations, and very friendly and helpful staff. They have their own secured website for reservations and I believe a bed will cost 17€ for the night. Buen Camino!

    I think the Pigrims office is closed from about 7pm to 9pm and then opens for 9.pm till 11pm. We got off Bayonne train at 7.15pm to find it closed but went to get some dinner and found
    them open after that. Be sure to book a bed in SJPDP. Buen Camino

    Greetings, Wily. As always your information freely offered is right on the money. Ultreia Gite d'Etape looks like a great place to stay in SJPdP before setting off. Question please - I am planning on having a rest day in Leon and Burgos and maybe Pamplona too. Can I stay in the same albergue on the rest day or do I need to find accommodation in another one?

    Hey James - Let me first recommend albergues in these three cities for you to check out.

    Pamplona - Albergue Plaza Cathedral
    Burgos - Albergue La Divina Pastora
    Leon - Leon Hostel

    As beds at the albergues in Pamplona and Leon can be reserved on Booking.com, I know one can stay for more than one night. The Burgos albergue is church sponsored. At only 5€, it was one of the great deals on the Camino, but with only 16 beds available, I don't know about additional nights there without first leaving and then returning at opening time. However, there's an email address in the link I've privided for you to check with them.

    I enjoyed all three of these albergues and would gladly stay at each of them again.

    Buen Camino!

    Wily, many thanks for the heads up regarding places to stay in Oamplona, Burgos and Leon - the albergues you linked in look fantastico! I was aware of La Divina Pastora but the others are new to me.
