The Experience

More than 250 pilgrims pass every day, after sometimes having walked for more than 2 weeks. Some of them will stop to relax and regain their energy. We'll support them with healthy home-made food, fresh drinks and a big smile, a vegetarian communal diner in the evening and an energy-boosting breakfast. And we offer them massage, yoga, musical instruments and personal attention. Would you like to help us publish it on social media?

Volunteering at the hostel was an amazing experience! Meeting diverse pilgrims everyday was very stimulating. Nicolaas was making sure I was feeling comfortable in the albergue and was very patient to explain how things worked many times. I liked also the fact that Nicolaas listens to any advice in order to improve the albergue so if you have ideas and sense of initiative this is the place for you! I recommend this opportunity for those who want to be active part of a pilgrim albergue and enjoy welcoming guests from around the globe: perfect also for practicing various languages.

Was great to be on Albergue del the hostel. Nico have good organization, is welcoming, and also flexible to understand you. I learn every day, i could havemy time and space to relax, and meet others pilgrims. One more think to add, Nico encourage you to live the experience of being a part of camino de Santiago, is not just about work some hours in exhange for acomodación, you feel like you are indeed on the albergue sharing and bring Hospitalet. Thanks for that time!

My experience with Nicolaas was wonderful, he is a really great guy who makes you feel at home and respects the hours and dates agreed on for volunteering. The work was simple and straightforward and while he likes it a certain way it is very easy to get the hang of it. I would recommend this volunteer opportunity to anyone because it was simply amazing.

If you are looking for a very quiet place, nature and hiking, this is the place for you. My job was to make breakfast for the pilgrims, make the beds and clean the hostel. The weather now in summer was wonderful. Not too hot, not too cold. Very peaceful in general. In my free days I took the opportunity to visit a beach nearby and a small waterfall.
