Owing to the French railways only allowing bookings at most 3 months in advance, I cannot yet book my train from Paris to St Jean Pied de Port. However, I thought at least I could book accommodation for when I arrive in St Jean.
I wanted somewhere cheap but also close to the Pilgrim Office, so I could get my Pilgram’s Passport (credential), crash and get something to eat after what will be a 6 hour train journey. Having looked at a few places I eventually settled on Gite Makila in 35 Rue de la Citadelle, 64220 Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France for a mere €27. I think the closed off bunks, views from the balcony and included breakfast is what made my mind up.
