Closed or was Never There ?: No sign of reported Albergue at Eskerika

Our Guidebook said that there was a possibility of a private Albergue at Eskerika, but at least one pilgrim had reported in that they had failed to find it. Well I didn’t see any sign of it either so assume it either must have closed or was never there in the first place !!

However we did find one useful thing here, that was a water tap with a sign for Perigrino’s to fill up their water-bottles :-)

The Albergue Municipal: One possibility for Guernica

The Albergue in Guernica is an Albergue Municipal (Not a Refugio de Perigrino as stated in my guidebook) However they do give a slight reduction to Perigrino’s charging 10 Euro per person. The dorms are nice enough and have 8 beds in them (I think there were 3 dorms making approximately 24 beds in total) and there is a kitchen and dining room as well as good hot showers, a place to wash and dry clothes and there is no curfew, which is an advantage when visiting a large town – However the Big downside was that my friends mattress was infested with bedbugs, we also heard from other Perigrino’s that they had the same problem !!!!!!!!!!!

The Refugio de Perigrino: Perigrino Only Accommodation @ Cenaruzza/Zenaruzza

The Monastery of San Millan de la Cogolla has a small Refugio attached, although we didn’t stay at this Refugio, we did visit the monastery and even though it was only around eleven the friendly monk there offered us accommodation. As it was a damp and very Grey day and the Refugio looked very nice, we were tempted but decided to keep going.

The Refugio de Perigrino: Perigrino Only Accommodation in Marquina-Jemein

There is a New Refugio at Marquina-Jemein, it is located in an old monastery right behind the Iglasia in the centre of town. Run by a very friendly and informative lady, it has approximately 30 beds, good hot showers as well as a place tom wash clothes and a good drying area. It also has a small but well equipped kitchen.The building it is located in is a delight too.
Donations – Please give as much as you can afford to cover the running costs of this excellent Refugio.

The Refugio de Perigrino: Perigrino Only Accommodation in Deva

The Refugio in Deva must have been enlarged since my guidebook was published as it now has 20 beds + an overflow room with a further 4 beds in a sports stadium nearby. We stayed in the overflow room as the Refugio was already full when we arrive there around four. The Hospitalaro was friendly and showed us this room as well as the public showers on the promenade where we had to toilet and shower (Small charge)
I didn’t get to see inside the main Refugio but the overflow room was fine.

Pension Goiko: Good Choices for Zumaya

There is reported to be a small Refugio in Zumaya, the only details that I have is that it has 14 places for Perigrino’s and is located in the Convento there.
However, If you can't locate it or want to stay in a small hotel thenI can recommend “Pension Goiko” as we stayed there later on, after we had finished the Camino.
A nice twin room with private bathroom and small balcony costs 42 Euro and it is right on the route on the right hand side on Embera Kalea 9 in the centre of town.

Hotel Itxas-Gain: Good Choices for Guetaria.

If you decide to walk the coastal route from Zarauz to Zumaya you will pass through the Delightful small town of Guetaria.
If you then decide to stay here there is reported to be an Albergue Municipal – But I neither saw it, nor was I told about it when I made enquiries at the tourist office in town.
So, If you locate it I can recommend “Hotel Itxas-Gain” as we stayed there later on, after we had finished the Camino.
Rooms here are a little expensive at 65 Euro, but they are nicely furnished and best of all is that there is a garden that overlooks the sea where you can take breakfast.

The Refugio de Perigrino: Perigrino Only Accommodation in Zarauz

There is a new Refugio in Zarauz that as yet doesn’t appear in many guidebooks, although it is mentioned on
http://www.mundicamino.com/
As you are walking through the newer part of Zarauz, keep an eye out for a sign for the Refugio, pointing you towards the beach. The Refugio is located in an old building on a street that runs parallel to the promenade, one street back. We missed the sign and ended up in the old part of town and then had to retrace our steps !!
The Refugio is again Friendly and very spacious with around 32 beds, good hot showers and a drying area at the rear.
Donations – Please give as much as you can afford to cover the running costs of this excellent Refugio

The Refugio de Perigrino: Perigrino Only Accommodation in Orio

We didn’t stay at this Refugio but as it was mentioned in my guidebook and is also mentioned on
http://www.mundicamino.com/
After passing the Ermita de San Martin de Toures, you will soon come to this little Refugio on the left hand side of the road before you drop down the hill into Orio. It looks a delightful Refugio and I am sure that it would be a Great place to stay !!

The Refugio de Perigrino: Perigrino Only Accommodation in San Sebastian

There is a new Refugio in San Sebastian that as yet doesn’t appear in many guidebooks and/or websites.
It is located at C / Escolta Real 12 ( Just after you turn inland on the left before you start to climb out of San Sebastian)
Run by a friendly guy who will do his best to give you all the information that you will need including great places to eat.
The Refugio is very nice, spacious with around 26 beds, good hot showers, place to wash clothes and a drying area.
Donations – Please give as much as you can afford to cover the running costs of this excellent Refugio

The Refugio de Perigrino: Perigrino Only Accommodation in Irun

The Refugio at Irun has been enlarged since I was last there two years ago – it then had about 22 beds and now has nearer 40, The Hospitalaro has also changed and it is now run by a friendly efficient woman who has lots of information including town maps that she will give you, Breakfasts are still provided and it still works on donations as opposed to any fixed charge.
Good if slightly cramped Refugio and a Great Place to meet up with fellow Perigrino’s, especially if you are just about to start your Camino

Closest hotel to the Exhibition Centre: Novotel (Accor) Barakaldo

This hotel oppened on September so it was all new. Pleasant service, nice decor and the closest hotel to the Exhibition Center.
The hotel had a 4-5 star Restaurant with really good food if you are willing to pay for it. We had dinner for about 55 euros for both of us w/o wine, but we liked it., Saturday morning we had breakfast at the bar, where we had cofee and a cream roll that was great, but there was a Buffet breakfast for 11 euros per person. There was a Chimney in the middle of the bar that gave a great ambience to it and a bit of warmth since it was a cold weekend.
Over all we found thata it was good quality for price and comvinience, and were pleased with employees.

Room: Big scenn TCT TV, great decor, confortable bed (latex matress), huge bathroom with shower and bathtub separated. Minibar, free cofee service with water heater. Safe. Hairdryer. And a sofa (Room 620).

Room service, Restaurant, Bar, Outdoor swimmingpool. Fireplace in bar. Everything new.
10 minute walk to Exhibition Center.

Albergue Plencia-Plentziako Aterpetxea: 25 kms from Bilbao

It´s the village where I live. It´s 25kms from the city of Bilbao and you can arrive here by metro.
There are ping-pong tables, basquetball and football fields near it.
Next to the river and 10 minutes walking from the beach.
Plentzia is a nice place to stay, specially in spring because it´s too busy in summer.
I recomend to show your International Hosteling card, they may ask you for it.
