    This Hostal is pretty nice. It´s quite a steep hike to get there or down to the city - about 125 steps. The rooms were clean and they had a space heater there for us (which really came in handy). The walls were a little thin. We could hear people very clearly even though they weren´t being loud. Altogether a nice, cheery stay.

Then I had to peel ...

    Border faff meant we arrived late to Valparaiso. We were supposed to arrive in the afternoon, but actually it was closing time everywhere by the time we got in. Some people we spoke to were at the border even longer than we were- 7 or 8 hours! Not helped by Chileans trying to smuggle booze and fags back into the country and then refusing to acknowledge which bags were theirs when they were pulled out for searching. Oh well!

    ... So we ...

    ... they were all rolling about laughing most of the way through it. We went to the supermarket after to check out the price of the alcohol, thinking we could maybe have a few wee drinks in the hostel, and we were chuffed to find that its ridiculously cheap. So we couldn't resist some rum & coke, which we bevvied in the comfort of the hostel, hiding from the rain.
