Camino de Sant… (not verified)

I stayed here in mid-May and second all the wonderful comments. Highly recommended!

You must stay here if you’re aiming to break up the trek from St. Jean to Roncesvalles. It’s a kilometer further up the mountain from Refuge Orisson. The place is new, only having opened in May 2021. Laurent is a gracious host with a great sense of humor, who also prepares excellent and filling dinners. Auberge Borda is a labor of love for him. The renovated barn and shepherd’s hut that he converted into the auberge is a modern and comfortable place. You can tell he is a pilgrim by all the thoughtful touches throughout. There are no bunk beds, with privacy curtains for your own nook, your own outlet with a small basket nearby to hold your phone, with a reading light. A pillow and a disposable bed sheet are provided. I saw some blankets but had brought my own sleeping bag. Four people share a space with two sinks, a shower and a toilet. There is space for 12 pilgrims total, with one private room. Backpacks, shoes and poles are not allowed in the rooms. You are given a small bin to place your necessities in to bring up to your space. There is plenty of hot water for a 5 minute shower (which you can pause while soaping). Washing machine and dryer are available for a fee, but also lots of laundry racks if you prefer to wash your clothes yourself. Best of all, the communal dinner is a chance to meet your Camino family. We had a wonderful and laughter-filled time with new friends. Thanks so much, Laurent!

Laurent will feed you very well, in accommodation that ticks all the boxes; quiet, views, well organised.
Absolutely loved it here, would recommend anyone to stay.

Laurent has worked hard to create a place that offers little amenities that mean a lot mentioned in other reviews. He’s helpful, kind, and offers a great pilgrim dinner and breakfast. Also packed lunches to go for an extra fee.
We enjoyed our night here and would stay again!
