Some of the albergues have pillows that are covered in the same kind of vinyl material that can be easily wiped down as the mattresses. Plus they can be covered with either (or both) a disposable pillow case, or the Pilgrim's own pillow case.For my sins, I've just read all of this thread.
I'm wondering about pillows. If I was running an albergue I think I'd withdraw them from circulation along with the blankets etc.
A couple of years ago I got tempted to buy the Sea to Summit premium Aeros blow-up pillow. It seemed like a bit of an unnecessarily expensive luxury at the time, but it's been truly excellent for me. It's 79g / 2.5 ounces that I don't ever resent carrying.
