The staff here is really friendly and helpful. The place is central and within walking distance from the bus terminal, just south of the plaza. The Balcarce area is about 20 minute walk away.
The place is clean, with access to a kitchen but it is in needs of some basic maintenance like changing a knob that staid in my hand after turned it to get water.
The table tennis and the roof terrace are great.
It's a good place with good value for money.

Looking forward to Salar de Uyuni, it is supposed to be magnificent. From some 'experienced travellers' I have heard it is the most amazing thing they have seen in their life and that ...

... very early at 7:30 given a large part of todays drive is on dirt roads and with the experience of yesterday we want to give ourselves as much time as possible. The first part of the journey is through the Quebrada de Toro following the famous train to the clouds, a drive that includes getting up to 4,200 meters. Again it is an amazing drive but different enough to the last couple of days to keep it interesting. Effectively following a river valley alot of the way. On reaching ...

Scenery in Salta

... but was recommended to me by several people I've met along the way, so I decided to add it in at the end. And I'm glad I did.

Downtown Salta is pretty small and "low rise " - most buildings are single storey - although there are a few that really stand out - the huge pink cathederal, the magenta and yellow church, and the white convent with the intricately carved wooden door, for example.
