These are places that I enjoyed staying at:
Hostel Xarma in Pamplona
This hostel is super clean and has some great features that highly recommends it to all travelers. They are:
A central location close to everything! Within three blocks you will find a large central market where you can buy fruits, vegetables, fish, bread, cheese and chorizos. Also there are various pharmacies close buy. There is a health clinic within three blocks where I had my blisters treated. Also very importantly you are only at 10 minute walk away from the Plaza del Castillo and the great bars and restaurants of the old quarter of the city!
The accommodations are superb. They have 3 rooms for 4 persons, 1 double with a bed for 2, 1 double with two single beds and special room for the handicapped with a special bathroom also for the handicapped directly adjacent.
Breakfast is included and there is a lovely patio in the back for you to enjoy!

One of the absolute best places that I stayed in was the Casa Rural named Embed Posada in Castrojeriz. A Casa Rural is the a Spanish Bed & Breakfast. Embed Posada is conveniently located in the Castrojeriz’s Plaza Major.
This 16th Century house has been completely modernized from top to bottom while an effort has been made to retain some of the original features of the house. The views from the Dining Room and outdoor patio are outstanding and the staff here bend over backwards to make your stay pleasant.
Hotel Jacobeo – Belogrado
This clean and delightful hotel has an Alpine vibe to it that I found to be very agreeable. The hotel also has a bar right next to reception that serves breakfast (not included with your room).
A delightful place to stay!
Hostal Volante – http://www.hostalelvolante.com
While I was staying in the albergue in Puente La Reina I got a phone call from Sechu, my Galician friend who along with his friend Vicente was a day ahead of me on the Camino. Sechu wanted me to know about the great place that he and Vicente had stayed at while in Estella. That place was Hostal Volante.
Hostal Volante was an exceptional place to stay and a great value!! The hostal is open all year. It is located right on the Camino route past the municipal albergue, a ways into town. The rooms are hotel quality rooms with WI-FI and a lounge. Parking is available and they can store your bicyles. It has everything and they will even help with your washing!!!
Downstairs and across the street is the Restaurant Volante that is a Spanish Pub style restaurant where the food is simple but excellent. Robert and I had drinks, dinner and breakfast there and we were very happy with all that they offered.
Hostal Volante and Restaurant Volante were just what the doctor ordered on the rainy day that we arrived!!!
Casa Rural De Sol a Sol – Hornillos del Camino, Burgos
(Also listed as Hostal De Sol a Sol in some guides but it definately has Casa Rural prices and is listed as a Casa Rural on Spanish Websites)
