Please note - Albergue San Martín will not reopen in 2020.  Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions on travel from the UK, US and Australasia, it is no longer practical to open this season.  We are sad to miss the pilgrims on the Camino del Norte and send all our best wishes to them on their way to Santiago.  We will be back in 2021!

On the Camino del Norte, in the remote Galician village of Miraz is our second pilgrim hostel – Albergue San Martín.  Established in 2005 and later expanded in 2010, San Martín offers traditional pilgrim hospitality in the form of welcome, a bed and breakfast in the tranquil surroundings of the green countryside between the towns of Baamonde and Sobrado, a few days short of Santiago. We also have a beautiful kitchen where pilgrims can make meals together, using food from one of the local grocers. 

The albergue is open between the months of April and October inclusive.  See our hostel Facebook page for frequently posted updates for latest news and information. 

Want to stay with us?

  • We have 26 beds, given on a first-come-first-served basis (in the traditional spirit of the camino, we do not take reservations), as well as a fully-equipped kitchen and garden area
  • We offer a simple breakfast
  • We are only able to take pilgrims who have walked, cycled or ridden on horseback
  • We are donativo – meaning pilgrims that stay with us make a donation towards the upkeep of the albergue
  • We open around 14:30 (may vary depending on weather)
  • Disabled pilgrims can ring ahead for advice on facilities

Want to work with us?

  • We are always looking for hospitaleros (hostel wardens) to staff San Martín. These consist of volunteers who are either members of the CSJ or other equivalent associations around the world.  Typically, they stay for 2 weeks in a team of 2-4 hospitaleros depending on experience.
  • Applicants should have done a camino previously and have an adequate command of Spanish (other languages also helpful).
