Here you will find a wide variety of accommodation to sleep as you walk along the Northern Way to Santiago de Compostela, such as hotels, hostels, pensions, farmhouses, campsites, inns and of course pilgrim hostels, both private and public . The offer of accommodations where to sleep in the Northern Way is quite wide, having the pilgrim many possibilities to choose, depending on your pocket or the time you want to spend in each locality
The peculiarities to stay on the Camino de Santiago are also applicable to the Northern Way if we talk about lodging in hostels, the most usual and economic option for the pilgrim (and in which you were probably thinking). To be able to sleep and occupy a place in one of the public hostels that you will find in the Northern Way, it is necessary that you have a credential that either you take with you or you can request at certain points along the Camino. This document identifies you as a pilgrim and you can change it to your arrival in Santiago by another document, the compostela, if you have traveled more than 100 kilometers on foot from your starting point.
It is important that you keep in mind that if you decide to make your pilgrimage with the idea of sleeping in hostels, it is not possible to reserve a place by telephone; The places are allocated exclusively by order of arrival of the pilgrims to the lodge. In spite of this it is not usual that the squares are completed; If this situation occurs, the hospitaleros will gladly indicate other options so that you can spend the night in the surroundings.
The choice of the hostel to spend the night by pilgrims, contrary to what is often thought, does not always concern the pocket, if not that goes much further. Staying in hostels will bring the pilgrim closer to the Camino de Santiago, his life experience and will put you in touch with other pilgrims with whom you share almost everything. The role of volunteer hospital managers who run hostels also goes far beyond simply accommodating the accommodation, as the pilgrim will get valuable information about the Jacobean Route and advice on pilgrimage.
