For those who are more adventurous and prefer to stay in the hostels and refugees along the Camino, we want to give a recommendation.

So many walkers have complained about bedbugs in these hostels.

To prevent them to make your journey a problem we have three recommendations:

– Travel with some Silk travel Sheets, apparently they are very difficult to go through.

– Also, carry with you TIGER BALM. For those who don’t know this, Tiger Balm is an ointment used by Chinese to relieve mosquito bites, but it has also a strong smell that repels bedbugs.

The original one has a brownish color,  but now you can also find a white one that when putting on the skin it is transparent.

– Our third advise is, book Hotels instead of staying at the hostels. At least you will ensure a good rest, in a private room and private bathroom, for the next day of walk.

So, with this, we wish you a good night, sleep tight, and don’t let the bedbugs bite 😉
