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.

... with some people even taking videos on their phones.
It was a 10 minute walk up the hill to the apartment and it had spectacular views out across the bay. We had a pasta lunch before taking a walk round the shore into the town centre. The beach on the southern end of Viņa was packed with loads of people braving the icy water to play around in the ...

... high in those days) swell of the Pacific Ocean. Well ok, I did have some 2 or 3 major wipe-outs, I have to confess, but it was cool. And right in front of the breaking waves, hunting cormorants were diving into the water and pelicans were flying by. Awww!
On the third day of our stay, the swear-in ceremony of Chile’s "new" (she had already served one term as president before) President Michele Bachelet happened to take place and there was ...
... end we presented ourselves at the gate and were given admittance by a friendly but doubtful guardian and then we were were at the winery, with not a vine in sight. As the reception committee there was made up of Alejandra and Pam,, aand ladies were in the majority in our party, there was soon a lot of chatting and it seemed, at one moment, as if we were never going to get as far as the cellars before our time was up.
In any case, the cellars were ...
... off the leaves one by one and only eating the white part of the vegetable at the base of the petal. It is like eating a flower, so sweet and perfumy! I love them! They must grow well in this climate, as do wine grapes - which is obvious by the abundant options of wines we have in the store. I can't believe it but it is possible to buy amazing bottles of wine for less than $2 USD!! The wines from this ...
