Not common, but after 40km, it looks like a proper feather bed ! We had to sleep on a gymnasium floor in Zubiri after a long day with no mattress, and no accommodations in the entire town. They made room for us. The Camino provides ! It was dry, and the showers were awesome !
@dcorrea951 Sorry fellow pilgrims but I would definitely pay for a pension
Also when the next pension is 25 km further
We arrived late in El Acebo and were happy with a place in the kitchen.
It was that or either another 10 km walk and not being certain if we would hit a bed anyway.
