Galicia to introduce charges in albergues

Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

Won't be introduced this year, but probably next, and charge likely to be around €5. Xunta currently spends over €1.2 million a year on its network of some 60 albergues, most on the Camino Frances but increasingly on the other routes. Money raised is intended primarily to improve facilities in the albergues.

In the same paper, there's quite a strongly worded editorial, criticising the delay in introducing charges and the 'absurd policy' of offering everything for free.

I was surprised when I did a search that nothing came up on the topic so here we go. Is it common in the albergues to have a few shelves of books free to take and exchange out ones you have?
