The quote of the day was achieved by 815am..."ok guys, find a spot for your stuff, grab a coffee/tea or a coke and have some m&ms for breakfast". Yup, pretty much sums up the travel breakfasts.

    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.
