Residencial El Cobre, Antofagasta, Chile (April 2014 - 1 night). There is a big misconception about the so-called problem of expensive accommodation in Antofagasta. I found Residencial El Cobre in the very center of the city, 20meters from the main McDonalds. For $9000 pesos ($17USD) I had my own room, it was not flash and there was no wifi or anything. The shared bathrooms had hot showers. Fine for 1 night. Who said there was no cheap accommodation in Antofagasta?
