    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.

    1.5hours on the bus out of Santiago and I'm wandering round a loud commercial area. It's kinda cold and the sidewalks are narrow, so I'm trying to dodge the locals. So wasn't feeling overtly impressed with Valparaiso so far. But then I wander up a hill, and it's almost ...
