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.

... houses and incredible street art – a result of encouraging the youth to turn their love for graffiti into something more beautiful. The upper and lower parts of the city are connected by a number of old funicular railways constructed at the turn of the 19th/20th centuries. We had the joy of riding in one.

... to ring the company- we then came to the realisation that we had no idea who this company was, if they even were a real company or what kind of bus/van we were looking for. All we knew was that they had a fairly clinical looking office and no change when bought our tickets yesterday. Lara told us to keep faith and after another anxious phone call and me asking the man on reception several times if we had been conned a bus arrived.....horray! After picking up several more ...
... walk and see the main attractions of the city (not including Pablo Nerudas Valparaiso home or the Cathedral). Walking around was really something. Rach looved the place and was essentially trigger happy. The place is really spectacular though. You can understand why it is a UNESCO world heritage site. The cute cobbled, twisty, unconventional streets, artsy cafe and hostals, brightly painted, old and dilapidated houses, and vantage points with spectacular views of the ...
... up. Anyway we got there, very exhausted of course, at the hostel we thought we had booked. However this wasn't the case when we went to check in, it turned out to be the wrong hostel with a very similar name and in the same area. Slightly annoying but only ourselves to blame as our legs and shoulders were aching and we had yet another walk to our hostel. The lady at reception was really nice and pointed us in the right direction which to our ...
... br> Vous l'aurez bien compris dans mon texte, moi qui etait si excitee a l'idee d'aller a Valparaiso, j'etais plutot decue.
Nous somme restes une nuit a Valparaiso dans une auberge assez sympa
Et nous avons passe une nuit a Vina del Mar qui est finalement que 15min de bus de Valparaiso (on savait pas)
Vina del Mar, c'est a peu pres le meme esprit mais plus propre et plus moderne.
Toujours des zig zag et toujours des cotes et ...
