This accommodation occupies a middle ground between a hostel and a hotel where you have more privacy than a hostel, but a small 13 room location means that you have the opportunity to interact with other people staying at the location. The overall price reflects said middle ground as one will spend more to stay here than at a hostel, but less than at an average hotel.

The rooms had simple, but functional furnishings that gave them a very homestyle feel as opposed to a staid hotel feel. Both doubles and a few triples were available. Each room had its own bathroom and shower which accorded some of the privacy mentioned above.

A continental breakfast is included in the rate. Also had a computer (older) with internet access available for guests.

The Hostal Oro Fueguino is in an excellent location on a dead end road below the mirador that overlooks the downtown area. So it's a little more quiet (although you still have to deal with the stray dogs barking), but still close enough to walk to the downtown areas.

On our flight to Punta Arenas, we had a brush with Chilean celebrity, Andres de Leon. While we had no clue who he was, but his euro-chic look complete with Justin Bieber inspired hair and six person entourage set him apart from the mix of backpackers and Chilean locals. We listened a bit to his uninspiring Latino pop romantic ballad music. Oddly …

... advantage. The journey we were to make took us back to Argentina in a circuitous route given the Magellan strait and necessitated a ferry crossing. This was interesting in that there is only one ferry which plies back and forth and with no schedule at all. So we could wait 5 or 155 minutes dependent on when we arrived to cross in relation to the last departure. Most disappointedly the coffee shop was shut for New Years Day. Disaster.! It wasn't too long a wait ...

... Unlike Clarkson and Co. we don't have a huge back up team to help us out.

We traced our way back to San Juan where we found a monument to Captain Pringle Stokes, the Captain of HMS Beagle before Robert Fitzroy. His grave was nestled alongside other English graves on the hillside. A brave and intrepid sailor, the difficult conditions in the Magellan Straits made him depressed. He put a bullet in to his head but it ...

... and we didn't see much as it was raining and the mud from the road coated the windows!

Unfortunately the flight was delayed so we had a very boring time sitting in the departure lounge. We finally left at about 3.30pm. There was a bit of turbulence along the way but apart from that the flight was fine and we landed at just after 5pm. ...

Wake up call at 7:30, but I had already been awake for awhile with coughing from a tickle in my throat. At first I thought I might be coming down with a cold, but it also could be allergies. Anyhow, it seems to be better now, except we're both tired from lack of sleep. Breakfast in Lido, then boarded tender at about 9:00 a.m. and headed to Punta Arenas, the last port in Chile. We were on a schedule tour entitled "Trekking in the Andean Club." The Andean Club is a ...
