Great way to end the Camino
If you are a Camino Pilgrim and cannot get a room at the Seminario Mayor (San Martin Pinario) then I recommend the Seminario Menor. That is how I ended up there. I stayed at San Martín Pinario in 2019 upon finishing the Frances and I stayed here a few days ago in Sept. 2021 at the end of the Camino Primitivo because I waited too long to try to get a reservation. After two weeks of bunk beds in shared albergues a private room was a luxury. But only to someone who has been on the Camino - don’t stay here just to save money unless you are a pilgrim. For 17 euros a night I got a small room with a twin bed, disposable sheets, a sink, a desk, closet, chair and a pretty nice view. The bathrooms and showers are shared and not much better than a typical albergue. The building is beautiful from the outside but about 1 km from the Cathedral. I didn’t mind a little walking after the 350 km I’d already walked. The biggest plus for me was I could stay two nights unlike most albergues. If none of this makes sense to you, don’t stay here. If you get what I’m talking about I hope this review helps. It was a nice way for me to end this Camino.
My own room for the first time in two weeks

Spotless & great value for money.
The Albergue was spotless and great value for money. Everything I needed. The staff were very helpful. My room was comfortable and there were loads of bathrooms all over to share. It was nice and quiet.

Great Location & Value for Money
Large Old Building a short walk across a grassy valley to the centre of Santiago de Compostela. The private room I stayed in was very basic with a basin but wonderful views of the courtyard gardens & beyond. Shared bathroom and large well equipped kitchen downstairs next to a store which stayed opened late & served soup etc. The dormitories were very large (but the pilgrims were used to that) and the kitchen could become crowded with groups of pilgrims arriving.

This property is in a monastery;so if you don’t want to live like a monk don’t book this place!Seriously this is a big hostel with many dorms and rooms and lots of people young and older.If you want a quiet stay you want a single room.A good value accommodation with parking and not too far from the railway station.I’d stay there again.
