Hi all: I'm writing up my notes on my Camino and am wondering if I've confused two alberges somehow: Calzadilla de los Hermanillos and Mansilla de las Mulas. The one I'm trying to remember the name of (and which town it was in!) had a small kitchen on the right as soon as you came in through the door, a long table for communal eating, and then cubicles of bunk beds in the back 2/3s of the building. Does that ring a bell with any of you? Thanks for any help. Joyce

The albergue at Calzadilla de los Hermanillos fits that general description. The kitchen and laundry were near the entry, and there was a common room with a single table, and wood stove to heat up the room. It wouldn't fit the albergue I stayed at in Mansilla, but there was at least one other albergue there.

I agree that it definately sounds like Calzadilla . If the village also has ruines of the Calzada Romana (in front of the church) and a very tiny store then it is definately it.

Mansilla had the office on the immediate right as you enter. The dormitories were upstairs and therw was a courtyard patio. Hope that helps.

With your general description provided, I would have said "Calzadilla de los Hermanillos" was the only albergue that I have stayed in that fit. Would it help if I noted that the washroom/shower facilities were parallel to and shared a common wall with the kitchen/entryway?

In other words, looking back to the entrance from the common table then the passage to the restroom/shower area was on your right.

Hope that helps a bit more.

Thanks, everyone. You've helped clarify my scribbled journal notes. Joyce
