It depends very much on the albergue. A few albergues have plentiful outlets for charging, and some have very few. Partly it depends on how they are situated near your bed as well.

my apple charger will accept 220V, but are most of the outlets the two "pins" or the newer ones that will accept pins and also "vertical slotted" plugs like we use here??? (should I bring an adapter?)
thanks, bill

If "here" means the U.S., the plug will not fit. You can get an adapter in a hardware or dollar store in Spain. You probably do not need a transformer. Most modern devices will accept 110 or 220 volt sources.
