An Albergue

I have stayed at a few really great albergues and a few not so great! I am also staying at some hostels where I can get a private room. Seem to be about 50/50 of each. I look ahead to the destination town, read reviews and decide what to do. When I am at a private room I do miss the camaraderie of the other pilgrims but I sure do get a good night’s sleep! The albergues are very inexpensive- about 7 to 10 euros but since I did not bring a sleeping bag, I get cold! I sleep in my sleep sack and then wear my down jacket and long underwear. Even though my sleeping in the albergues has not been the best, I still feel rested in the morning. The albergue I am at tonight is very nice. It has 211 beds in 10 dormitories, a very nice kitchen, and a big common area. It also has a snoring room and in the back of the albergue, the backup chicken crew recuperate after performing a 14 day shift at the local cathedral. It also has a very nice laundry area outside. The cost is 7 euros. The bathrooms are separated into one for men and one for women and are extremely clean.
