Actually opened at 3pm and you could add your name to registration queue list on front porch beforehand. Slow registration processing by two gentlemen who require you to donate when you register. Completo tonight but due to location vs any warmth during reception. One plus: if you arrive before they open, you can walk to left of the building and drop your pack in the garage, take shower in outside shower trailer, start laundry and they have a centrifuge (laundry spinner) available.

We got a spot despite arriving about 5:30 in high season. Hospitaleros were rude and a bit disorganized and it was strictly forbidden to bring in food. It’s also forbidden to camp outside despite the presence of a large garden. Therefore the atmosphere in the Albergue is not the best, only good for sleeping. But location is close to the beach and on the Camino, which is a plus:)

They start registration at 3 pm. You can get a number before 3 pm and come back at 3. There are 2 rooms with 30 beds each so about 60 people in total.

true about getting a number. while one waits for the albergue to open, one can take a shower, leave bags to go have lunch, etc., in town next to the beach. albergue is very close to the beach. the showers outside (the showers inside open when the albergue opens) are: individual showers, but no space to put your valuables/clothes; mixed (men/women) together. hospitalero opened the albergue in the morning only at 6 am. we could not leave before, to start walking.

This Albergue was closed due to COVID when we were in Zarautz on 23rd July. Accommodation in Zarautz was generally quite expensive (a few of the places in centre of town charging €70 for a room and youth hostel full). Ended up at Agerre Goikoa (where the Camino first enters the town), nice private room for €50 for pilgrims (unfortunately more than we wanted to spend but relieved to find somewhere!)

This albergue does not exist anymore end of june '21. A local explained that this building is now an art/ceramic school. A new albergue publico opened at the end of town next to 'monte albertia'. Can confirm it exists, but did not sleep there because they were full for the day already.
