Bath towels provided in double rooms ?


New Member
Well, I just got my "miam miam dodo", the French Bible about albergues, hostels and the like on the Camino :D . We're looking for places where we will be able to get a double room, and I wondered: some private albergues have a few double rooms : are bath towels provided then ? (I suppose - tell me if I'm wrong ! - that they are in pensiones, hostels, ...).
I would be happy to spare us the extra weight :? :wink:

you could, of course, bring a super-light compact towel that you will find in outdoor stores - and remember also that during the summer, France and Spain are warm enough to dry in the fresh air quickly enough

Thanks spursfan, but as we will be walking just before Easter, I reckon we won't be able to rely on the sun to dry us :wink:
So well, let's see. I could ask on the phone when booking, I suppose (just another Spanish sentence to prepare in advance :lol: )

On the very few occasions that we have been offered a double room in an Albergue, I have never seen bath towels. Yes, you will find them in pensions. My advice is, as mentioned by Spursfan, buy one of these microfiber towels. They weigh next to nothing and dry out super fast. Once or twice, I noticed that an Albergue rented a towel, I think for 1 euro, but this is not something to be relied upon. Anne
