In 2019, we discovered that all the cooking utensils had been removed from all the municipal albergues in Galicia. No-one seemed to know why. Could be cost-cutting or could be pressure from local businesses, who knows. I'd be interested to hear any explanations (one hospi told it was because pilgrims kept nicking it - as if someone has walked 1000kms across Spain solely for the purpose of helping themselves to a 4 litre cooking pot). The microwaves and stoves are still there. So, if you want to self-cater, you'll need a billy + mug and spoon/fork. Total weight, if you buy from Decathlon, 375 grammes.
