I did the central route this summer, and if you use private albergues, they will usually give you bedding. I was very pleasantly surprised. One place I highly recommend is Casa Fernanda. She and her husband do dinner and breakfast, are incredibly friendly. They have a real heart for pilgrims!

Portuguese (2019)
I did the Portuguese from Lisbon via the central in 2019. It was in March and I used my sleeping bag all the time whether bedding was supplied or not. Sleeping bag did not weigh much and it just meant wherever I stopped I had my bedding and I knew where it had been and with whom :). Realize March is not October but for the weight involved I would definitely take a sleeping bag, just gives control and choice if desired.
Cheers

Camino Frances (2021)
Am on the Camino Frances right now - currently in Rabanal. In 3 1/2 weeks on the CF so far, we have used sleeping bags virtually every night (except occasional stays in hotels). My wife and I bought bags rated to 50 degrees Fahrenheit and have thought those bags with that rating have been one of the best gear selections we've made.
 
Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

Frances
Just finished the Coastal from Lisbon, to Fatima and then to Santiago on October 1, I did all under $5- $20 euros Albergue and hostels. Only used my liner 2 times at public Albergues. Everyone seems to provide full sheets, towels and blankets due to Covid!

I second the recommendation for Casa Fernanda. Stayed there a couple of weeks ago. Brilliant!
