10/10 Exceptional

Great place to stay if your considering walking the Camino de Santiago from france to spain. The location couldnt have been better. Room was clean and comfortable with a balcony looking out toward the Pyrenees. Mountains. We arrived earlier than check in time and our host was able accomadate us and store our bags while we went exploring the little town of St. Jean Pied de Port. Also the Compostela office was right next door do that we could register and start our journey the next day. Simple breakfast offerrd made it easy to prepare for the ling walk ahead of us. Would highly recommend.

Great place to start your Camino
The host Poncho was super friendly and helpful. The room was a good size with a wonderful view. Breakfast was excellent. This place is right next to the pilgrim office so it’s very convenient.

A great starting point for the Camino!
A great starting point for the Camino! Clean, comfortable & affordable accommodation, and the host went above and beyond to make sure you felt welcomed and got all your questions answered! The beautiful garden in back was also a nice plus, as was the included breakfast! Would gladly stay again, as well as recommend to others.
