Chile- Santiago

A travel blog entry by mattcoopers on May 01, 2014

So, I survived 16 days in Vegas, packed my bags and raced to the airport for my first solo route of the trip. My flight to Panama City left at 7am. Checking in my bags at Vegas, felt like I was already in Chile. They spoke mostly Spanish, and relaying to them, my plans, was not easy. I had not booked accommodation in Santiago, so came up with a …

Santiago

A travel blog entry by steve.martion on Jan 21, 2014

Its a long way from Perth to Santiago, especially when you have to stop at both Sydney and Auckland. I´m not sure exactly how long it took because I lost track somewhere over the Pacific but I´m pretty confident that it was over 20hrs. But so far completely worth it. Santiago is a pretty awesome city, and the summer here is much like at home, hot, …

Is it really the end of this truly fabulous trip? A year has raced by, of course, and already I'm sitting on Iberia flight 6380 back to London Heathrow. Before leaving Santiago, I had time for a quick bit of sightseeing with Hans. We took the metro to Plaza de Maipu at the end of the red line and visited a church at the site of a major battle for …

Ohne Wecker sind wir heute früh genug aufgewacht, um ohne Eile zu frühstücken und unsere Sachen packen zu können. Wir hatten also genug Zeit. Und unser Bus in die Atacama-Wüste fuhr erst 13.55 Uhr.

Gemütlich beim Frühstück sitzend, bemerkte Doreen, dass der Hostel-Manager beim Verlassen des Frühstückraums sehr auffällig auf seine Uhr …

    The people here were nice & friendly. I couldn't argue with how they accommodated me. Especially, when I arrive on the first night at 3am, with no booking. Burton, the manager from New Zealand woke up and let me in. After 2 weeks in vegas, this quiet hostel was a nice break for a few days. We had a BBQ one night, that cost $10 for a massive amount of meat. It took a while to cook everything, as there were approximately 30 intrepid travelers, finishing or starting their trips. The food was great, but people were impatient at the time it took to cook for everyone. Some even kicked up a stink and asked for their money back. I refused to take any kind of refund. $10 for unlimited red wine and awesome steaks, pork ribs and chorizo, can happily be my dinner, any time. I did miss out on the pork ribs, as I headed out for drinks, and they weren't served till after midnight :)
    Overall, the hostel just wasn't really for me. The Eco part of it was a little dirty. They didn't like people flushing their toilet paper, which I think I gross. Putting shitty paper in a bin next to you, to sit and stink out the joint. I was worried that this would be ongoing in sth America, but it turned out that it was a one off.

    Well this place cound´t have been more dfferent/better than our first attempt at accommodation! Not only was it warm, but in the evenings they brought out heaters just to make sure! And it was clean cosy and comfortable, along with probably the finest kitchen we´ve seen in our trip. They had a proper wine opener, proper wine glasses and a selection of kitchen knives. Those three things are almost impossible to find in hostels on this continent. Actually, they are impossible to find, except here. Thumbs up from us anyway. Oh, and check out is 12am, what more could you ask for..

    A really friendly hostel. with huge rooms and lots of common areas the place is great. A fantastic breakfast and good cooking facilities help with cheaper days. Activities can be booked with the hostel and events at the hostel help make this a sociable place. Its certainly not a loud party hostel but wouldn;t want to be. We had a great stay.

    Eco hostel was a good stay, it was in a good position centrally located with Plaza Italia not far away and a supermarket near by. Free internet and a good kitchen with clean bathrooms and toilets, the price was very good so i chose to stay here. It was safe and quiet with a BBQ night. It's environmentally friendly and the staff spoke english always more than happy to guide you through the ropes.
