We read loads of great reviews of this place before booking and think it was a little over egged. It's not the best hostel in SA and neither is it the best breakfast either. Maybe we were expecting more due to the great reviews.
As soon as you go through the front door you are straight onto a steep set of stairs which take you into a living room. Off this room are bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom. Another set of narrow stairs take you down to another floor - toilet, bathroom, more rooms, a seating area and kitchen.
We had to cancel our first night because of buses and we phoned and emailed Patricio - however when we arrived there was some confusion and we weren't sure at first if he was going to try and charge us. he didn't. We arrived at 9am and if we had taken a room at that time he said he would charge us. But then decided we go into the room after all.
The first room we were given had no windows to the outside - only high up windows into the corridor - these windows did not have a curtain across them, so if the light disturbs you, this isn't the room for you. The room was large with a decent sized bed, but there was a damp smell.
We asked to change room as we wanted a window. This one wasn't ready so we waited a short while. It was a smaller room but had 2 windows. The bed was smaller, the mattress was very thin - so thin that when you sat in bed you could feel the slats of the bed through it.
The shared bathroom was always clean and the shower was hot and strong.
The kitchen on the lower floor was not as well equipped as the one on the first floor - we had to go up for a shape knife, pan big enough for pasta and a decent sized frying pan. There was no hot water in this kitchen, so to wash up we boiled the kettle. The teatowel was always wet so it was difficult to dry your dishes.
The breakfast was available between 9am and 10am and it consisted of warm bread, meat, cheese, sometimes avocado and jam with tea and coffee. OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. If you got there near 10am you generally only had the pick of the biscuit style bread.

... great pride in it as there was so much cleaning going off, this Involved a small boat going round with filters which cleaned the water, it was mesmerising to watch as god knows how long it would take to do the entire thing.

After coffees in a small shop at the bottom of the hill, we take the funicular back to the top and end up in the middle of Cerro Alegra. People are busily running around while the small shops are still open.

... down into the center of the city. From that table, he could also watch the imported trolleys, secondhand from Zurich, as they circulated from place to place with their original German signage, as if they were still running past the plain facades of silent Helvetian neighborhoods, and had never disembarked to find the potholes, stray dogs, papers and street vendors of ...
... cables hang everywhere across streets and paths, and countless graffitis decorate any free space. The small streets and stairs form a true maze to wonder around. Incredibly, some streets led in a 40 degrees (!) angle up the hills. So, a fun way of getting up the hills are the various short escalators around town.
From a tourist perspective there isn't much to ...
This last week was pretty lame. I'm getting in the habit of going to classes, my schedule is pretty easy. And then i got this awesome sickness that started wed night and has had me down for the count for the rest of the week. Started as a sore throat and turned into one of the worst head colds I think I've ever had. My head feels like it weighs a million pounds and my ears are killing me. Because of it I havent been sleeping well. On friday I was determined to go ...
