TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal Rio Amazonas Plaza Italia Santiago
The hostel is very nice. Service is excellent and it's just a footwalk to the City Center and to Bellavista.
Why I don't give five stars, is that the single rooms are noisy, because of the street Vicuna Mackenna.

As we left camp yet again and retraced our steps we were now about 4 hours behind our original schedule. We still had to hike up a steep 800m incline before a final 9km descent to ...
I can't believe up until a few hours ago my time here could be measured in hours, and not really days or weeks. Maybe it's the amount of waking hours I have had that make it seem so much longer. In a feat of long distance travel, I slept most of the way to santiago, to the point where the air hostess prodded me awake, 'we have arrived, and I opened my eyes to see the plane already empty. Disembarking, the block in my ears incredible. The pain started when I ...
... again. This time I said, “oh, no gracias”. She shook the package in front of me as to insist that I take another cookie. I said “no gracias” again and then she said, “Hija!" (pronounced ee-ha) And she gave me a fierce look. Now for those who don’t know, “hija” is the Spanish word for daughter, but the way she said it translates to something more like “Girl, if you don’t take ...
