Walking the Inglés with a friend in early May. Planning to stay at 3 albergues (Neda, Presedo and Bruma). For those who have walked it, would you recommend a sleeping bag or will a liner be enough?

Any other tips or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks and Buen Camino!

If your staying in the albergues only then just a liner will be fine in may. The weather never gets that cold in the north even in the winter. If your camping however then I would take the sleeping bag as the liner may not be enough depending on how tough you are.
Happy Camino's.

It is not on your list but when we were in the Betanzos albergue, there were no blankets

I did it in September, but it is also a cusp season. In Bruma, I was cold with a liner and my long underwear. It is a stone building, and it is cold, with no heat. I don't recall any blankets here either. I did not stay in the albergue in Betanzos. The liner may not be enough in April. For my next Caminos I bought an ultralight camping blanket, because I do not like being cold! Here is what it was on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2GxhVLw. It worked like a charm for my next Caminos.

May can still be cold ,,,or not ,,, I personally would not walk without a sleeping bag ,,, and I do stay in albergues ,,, and yes most but not all have blankets ,,, but sometimes the blankets look like they haven't been washed for years ,,, so I use a Cumulus Magic zip sleeping bag so it opens out except for the foot area,, weighs in at 275 gms ,,,and I love it !!!

I bought a 10 degree C/50 degree F bag to go with me on my Camino as a very light ‘just in case’. I think it really depends on if youre a warm sleeper or a cold sleeper. I’m always throwing blankets off and sticking my legs out in the dead of winter so I don’t need much.

I walked the Ingles in June in 2013. The weather forecast said the weather would be good but it wasn't, it was cloudy and wet. Because of the weather forecast I only took a sleeping bag liner and a small fleece blanket. I survived but I promised myself not to walk without a sleeping bag again.
