Where do pilgrims sleep on the Camino?
In this episode I give a full run-down on the what, the where, and the how-they-work of the pilgrim’s hostels, or albergues, on the Camino. And I explore the other sleeping options, in case sleeping in shared dorm rooms isn’t for you.
What about the idea that the albergues are the heart of the pilgrim community, and that true pilgrims stay only in the albergues? Let’s talk about that, too!

Correction: According to the list of albergues handed out by the Pilgrim's Office in Saint Jean Pied de Port, roughly 40% of the albergues on the Camino Francés are open all year (not roughly half, as mentioned).
