    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 thought that as the journey was so long, we'd try get the 180 degree reclining seats but after some research scrapped that idea as it would've cost £100! We got the regular semi cama seats instead and left at 8pm. After a film and a sleeping pill, we managed to sleep …

    ... spotting another circus skills busker plying his trade at the traffic lights between the two. Arriving at the bus station, we settled down and waited. We asked a bunch of people but, ten minutes after our bus was due, it still hadn't arrived. Thankfully, it pulled in soon afterwards and we settled down in our comfortable seats. The set up for coaches in Chile is fairly luxurious. There was a decent toilet of board, TV screens throughout the aisle showing films, and even ...

    ... curb out front for about 20 minutes until the owner showed up. She is a lovely old lady who treats every guest like they are her child. She invited me in to what appears to be just a house. I sat in the living room, used their wifi, and then had breakfast in their dining room.

    I met some really nice people staying at the hostel and this place just has a really good vibe to it. There are two really nice german guys ...

    ... park warehouse). We found the La Recova market which was great as far as markets go. Very bustling and lots to buy. I saw these pants that I just had to buy. When I told the guy I was interested he showed me how to put it on - but oh my lord. It works like a diaper and he tried to put it on and was about to put his arms between my legs. I was pretty mortified and told him no! I ended up buying it for 10,000 CHP. Around midday we looked for a laundry place. Ash and Rach paid to ...

It was a treat to branch out from the rabidly popular 'completo’ (the Chilean hotdog, frankfurter-style with lashings of mayo and palta) but it was the most expensive and tasty meal that we had eaten for a while. You are only 30 once!
