I have been informed by peregrinas by message that there are bed bugs both seen and have already bitten at Lourenza and Baamonde - both municipal albergues :(

Thanks for the information as I am just a few days walking away. At Baamonde there seems to be no alternative to the Xunta albergue so I'm not really sure what to do about it!

There is an hotel/hostel on the camino just
after Baamonde.You can find the details and phone number on gronze.com.

Just because some bedbugs were seen recently doesn't mean that there is still a problem at those particular albergues. And whoever brought them there could have by now spread them to other albergues!

I walked from Vilalba to Santa Leocadia and stayed at the wonderful Albergue Witericus. They only have 9 beds, so I suggest making a reservation.

The name is Hostal Ruta Esmeralda beside the petrol station on the road leaving Baamonde.
Thanks so much, I've booked in. Hopefully those bed bugs aren't spreading too far further down the route.
