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.

... for birds to drop their treasure from the sky, they both are charming. Fonck is elected the best part of Chile so far as we follow our hearts to the beach. Strong late afternoon sun and warm sand congratulate us on finding our gold as we nap in bliss. Late afternoon turns early evening and the silent dinner bell starts to ring. A thorough sweep of the restaurant row by the beach dictates that ...
... to end. On Sunday we had a slow and lazy morning before driving to the house of Nicholas and Loretta for a fun lunch. Less arguing about religion and the royal family than Christmas eve, instead lots of stories about Nicholas' times and Greece and his exploits at zumba classes. We got invited to the next class on the following Tuesday as Nicholas insisted it was very different and far more vigorous than English zumba. The holidays over for Magda and Willie they both had ...
... the first time they attempted this same transaction, fortunately we had better luck and a very nice ticket attendant. We successfully caught the train to the right stop where buses constantly go to Valparaiso. We got on a really nice double decker bus which took two hours to get to our destination (it puts Aussie buses to shame) Once reaching Valparaiso we had to work out where to stay, we didn't have accommodation booked but we had ...
... or have broken every bone in my body. We were all screaming and everyone was a bit shaken up for a while. Lesson learnt- NEVER walk between buses. We reached the restaurant and tried a local dish called "Chorillana" which is essentially shreaded beef, eggs, cheese, peppers and onions on top of chips (a bit like the lomo saltado that we made in Peru but greasier). We enjoyed our enormous meal for four and laughed about nearly dying. What a way to ...
... of land in the valley of some mountains. They grow all sorts of flowers for special events like weddings etc. It was a little interesting. The guy showed how he would cross pollinate different colors to get flowers with two colors. And he didnt use any pesticides. Instead in one area he grew a bunch of peppers so that they attract all the insects away from the flowers. So a lot of them were rotten but there were some good ...
