Firstly, lets get the 5 minute walk out of the way.
If you have told someone you're going back packing (Sth America, Chile or the world), this walk shouldn't present even the remotest challenge to you unless you think backpacking should involved air-conditioned luxury and possibly a fleet of sherpas.
Right, on to the hostel. Its modest, but clean and tidy. We had a 3 bed room at the back which was very quiet. I think the number of rooms is quite small (maybe 10) but during our visit (Dec 2010) there was some work going on which suggested that maybe they were adding some.
Breakfast was the usual SA fair, bread, jam, cheese, ham, coffee / tea etc but served outside the nice, large kitchen.
Alejandra was extremely helpful with bookings and even dealt with an awkward airline booking that was were struggling with due to the language barrier.
If you walk to the hostel from town, don't be put off by the exterior. Inside is a happy, clean and very friendly hostel.
