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.

... it has made us think more of home and all the beauty and love we have back there and dotted all over the globe.
Homesickness is a normal part of the adventures, and missing people close to you gets more intense as the days add up behind us.. 50 days in now, and not even half way! Raising a glass of vino to everyone back home tonight, can't wait to see you all.
Hugs peace and happiness xx
... and relieving themselves both publicly and prodigiously with their uniquely aromatic ****. And since I don't actually know better, I'd say that is as good a theory as any because there is no other logical explanation for how incredibly stained and pungent Valparaiso's sidewalks are.
All right, back to the task at hand. The entire city of Valparaiso (referred to as Valpo by locals and overly pretentious tourists alike) seems stuck in time - a time I would ...
... planning more of the trip, working out finances, etc. Its nice to have this day to stop and think.
New Year's Eve as well. I know Han and I will reflect on the year 2013 has been for us and very much look forward to what 2014 has in store. We'll be watching the fireworks fall over the Santiago skyline 3 hours behind UK time and shall toast to absent friends and family. We miss you very much.
Féliz Nuevo Año De Todos!
... up the city and the houses/buildings are a colourful wave built up across and into them. Street art/graffiti everywhere and funky fenicular railway lifts to take you up and down the steep slopes. Exploring the vast mass of craziness was great fun. The lonely planet was bang on.: its really not hard to see why Pablo Neruda (chileans 2nd nobel prize winner for literatyre) was in love with the city.
... like it has. I think I have always been open minded and tolerant of other cultures and I feel like I still am. Really what it has made me realize is there is so much more I want to know, about languages, cultures, places, politics, anything and everything. I hope that in the future I can travel as much as possible. But only travel...Time here has also made me realize how much I appreciate my roots.
I think I need to ...
