Never had the problem. Saw it for others in Santa Catalina one evening. I was enjoying a beer at the front of the albergue when a guy I knew arrived and was turned away. Local ladies offered him a bed in their home. Seems they are there quite regularly offering to helpHow many have walked the Camino and found often that all beds are filled, do you sleep under the stars then?
Imagine that. Flashlights, late comers, midnight toilet users, snorers, alarms, bag rustlers and on top of that - basketballTouch wood I have always got a bed of sorts. Once it was a fold up bed. Villages also sometimes open up the sports hall (pabellón) when necessary so I once slept on a gymnastics mat on the Camino del Norte. It was good because you could play basketball and there was a pool.

We always found beds. One time we had to walk a few extra KM's. We did start early everyday (7am on the trail) and were done by 2-3pm. Those finishing late in the day, 5-6pm did sometime have difficulty. we made a pact to not reserve ahead and follow the Camino mantra ' The Camino will provide'. For us, it always did. We found we were far less anxious than our fellow pilgrims spending each afternoon searching for a bed online. we really just walked each day until we were ready to stop, and loved the freedom in that.How many have walked the Camino and found often that all beds are filled, do you sleep under the stars then?
