I've heard that Buiza is a very beautiful albergue, you do need to bring your own food. Please put comments in the discussion if you have stayed here and know anything about the kitchen.
Poladura and Pajares
PLEASE reserve by phone the day before for the bar restaurants. As you can see on the download, there is nowhere in the villages for the cook to buy fresh food either, so they need to know you are coming. If you can ask around your fellow pilgrims and put together a group booking, it makes it much easier for them.
The kitchen in Poladura albergue is very small and basic and sometimes runs out of gas. Please note that there is NO pilgrim kitchen in the albergue in Pajares. Please don't write reviews about this albergue complaining about this: they don't have one so the bar remains viable. Poladura and Pajares both have vending machines with various snacks and drinks.
More detailed info and phone numbers can be found on the albergue noticeboards along the way, and as always, ask the hospitaleros for the most up to date situation.
