Hostal El Punto, La Serena, Chile (April 2014 - 2 nights). This hostel is nice, new, has several bathrooms, tidy dorms, good breakfasts, wifi and is located not too far from the center of town and close to a big supermarket. But don't get too carried away planning an evening meal or shopping for food because the hostel has no real kitchen for cooking in. Just a microwave, kettle, a half-sized fridge and not much to cook with. Conveniently the hostel has its own restaurant where you can buy a meal.
