    Lovely owners but tired looking hostel

    We ended up staying here because the hostel we'd wanted to stay at was booked up and this one was on the same street. The family that run this hostel are lovely, so friendly and because it has family run it has a really homely feel to it. The rooms, communal areas and bathrooms were very clean but the kitchen often felt grubby. The decor looked as though it could do with a bit of a spruce up. Our room did have a TV which was a nice touch. Gardens were lovely and full of flowers! There's not much nearby except the bus station which is really close. Its about a 15 min walk to the supermarket, 15 min walk to the town centre and 25 min walk to the beach.

    From Iquique to La Serena we had the longest bus journey yet, 20 hours!

We got the regular semi cama seats instead and left at 8pm. After a film and a sleeping pill, we managed to sleep …

It took us about 45 mins to get there but the weather was beautiful and the walk was pleasant. We arrived in the city and was greeted by some Christmas markets in full swing. So we had a browse and enjoyed some local Christmas homemade food. After a few hours we walked back to the hostel to ...

    ... have turned it into a museum with many of her original things preserved there. After that, we headed back to La Serena and I made round two of pasta and tomato/blue cheese salad.

    The next morning we got up and headed to Santiago on the bus. Even though it was daytime I slept most of the 7 hour trip-must have been tired! Upon arriving in Santiago, we checked into our accommodations and quickly headed out since we only had one day to explore. ...

    the rocks out of range. Also, all the roofs were crammed with pelican
    lookalikes, so getting along the walkway required luck to avoid the poopy bums
