To find a hostel that had 5 open beds took enough time and walking. Well the second hostel we got to was open, but hey, I’m lazy and we should get it on the first try. We ended up staying at a hostel called Willy Fog. At $12-15 USD a night, it wasn’t the cheapest but was probably not the most expensive. It had WiFi that worked the first day, breakfast was included and the downstairs was an open area that was nice to chill at.
Most people there spoke Spanish… surprise surprise. Haha. Of course Amelia walked up to half the people there, striking up conversations and left with several more friends that she had started with, specifically 2 Australians whom we ran out on the streets with to grab burgers and alfajores. Pot heads lol.
Actually the hostel had a terrace upstairs where a bunch of people chilling and smoking and drinking. There were even some pot plants lol. But the relaxed atmosphere in the fresh air with some people playing music made it a nice place to hang out.
Surprisingly, I also made friends. Ahhhh Amelia is rubbing off on me.
Just chilling around everyone got me talking to some people. One girl, from Mendoza is only 18 and is hitchhiking around South America, playing instruments and keeping a blog she gets paid to update. She highly recommended going to Mendoza and do some rappelling and other fun sporty activities with the mountains. I don’t think I’ll take her suggestion on bungee jumping though. Some other people ordered pizza one night and shared it with me. Of course the one time I am actually not hungry. Ahhh my life. Javier kept trying to force me to eat but the other people were like, dude, if she’s not hungry she doesn’t need to eat… except in Spanish. My heroes!!!!
Basically people were awesome, they’re what makes a hostel, and the hostel was pretty good…. Minus WiFi bugging out after the first day. (we were only there 2 nights)
