Our hostel owner in the beach town of Iquique was wonderful. On our first night Maria organises a BBQ with both locals and hostel guests. The set price included yummy food, cocktails, wine with great company. Jim only made it to bed at 5am carrying a broken hard drive. The next evening there is a film night in the garden of the hostel. It amazes me how one person can make such a difference to your impression of a town. We both really enjoyed the couple days on the beach and meeting new people.
