Good Margaret that you mentioned this! The temptation is great to dump your pack on the bed (especially when you are unloading it and again when you pack it up in the morning). However just think of all the other places this pack has been put down - and what it has collected along the way! I admit that I, for one, was very guilty of this. I never thought of the consequences...but...forwarned is forarmed. I will try in future to reserve my bed with something else than my backpack and to find somewhere else to unpack, pack and store this most essential belonging of my Camino when I am in the albergues.
