    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 …

    ... from the North American indians at the time Tierra del Fuego was still connected to the mainland, were killed, hunted like animals, as recent as 1894. Because they were in the way of white men digging for gold and depriving the island of its forests. A sickening story that depresses us for the rest of the day as we drive across the island, realizing that this apalling behaviour is still taking place today and presumably will for ...

    ... lunch, we had never seen the Lido restaurant so quiet. We had a quiet afternoon. Went to Happy Hour in the Crow's Nest and listened to the Team Trivia. We actually got more correct answers than usual.

    After dinner we went up to the Crow's nest for scenic cruising in the Strait of Magellan. When we started to sail away fro Punta Arenas we saw a pod of whales ahead of us and watched them as well as some dolphins.

    ... centre and decided to walk to our lodgings on Paraguaya. For a place renowned for its horizontal rain, the town was sunny and warm, if a little breezy. There was no one at reception but we were 3 1/2 hours earlier than planned. We found a phone, miraculously got it to work and we got access to our "home."

    After a quick trip to the supermarket, it was a mushroom and asparagus pasta dinner with a Pisco Sour or two for ...

    Another hour of bumpy ride, we were back in town which was within walking distance of the pier. The van dropped us off and that was the end of the tour. Grossly not worth the $ we paid. Could have hired a taxi to do the same thing for a lot less, but who knew!

    In town, we walked through a few gift shops and ...
