    In two weeks time we'll be starting in Leon. The first night we have planned to stay in the albergue in Cabanillas. I have read somewhere that there are only 4 beds available, in another source there was spoken of 16 beds and in yet another still of more.
    Can anybody that stayed there recently tell me what the situation is and if it is possible to make reservations.

    Some, and more.
    Four beds.

    The confusion may come from the fact that there is an alberfue juvenil of the same name in Navarra that is quite large.

    Hi @Antonius Vaessen, I stayed in Cabanillas in May. The albergue is lovely, also used as a village social room. There's is a huge room with four beds that pull out/down from the wall, two lower and two upper. Not particularly comfortable. There is a kitchenette with microwave but no other cooking facilities. You need to bring food as there are no shops or restaurants in the tiny village. There are two lovely spacious bathrooms. You need to phone ahead to advise the hospitalera that you are coming and then phone again when you arrive in the village to announce your arrival. When we were there we first met with a woman at the very start of the village who made a phone call and then we made our way to the albergue where the hospitalera was waiting for us with the key (she lives opposite).

    We walked the San Salvador after walking the camino de Madrid, and before walking the Primitivo. A fabulous camino experience with the most stunning scenery. You are welcome to take a look at my blog, where I posted daily from the camino, giving lots of useful information including elevation profiles, distances, descriptions of the route and accommodation and lots of photos.
    Buen camino!

    Thanks for your quick response, this indeed might explain the confusion

    Many thanks for your quick response. I took a quick look at your blog. It looks very good with many pictures. I will read it in the upcoming days to warm me farther up for the Salvador. (I wanted to do the Salvador last year but due to blisters I could not walk for ten days. I went by car from Leon to Olviedo, the Camino crossed the road a few times and I could see how beautiful this trail must be. So I'm looking forward to it. A very nice extra is that my 21 year old daughter will be walking with me.)
