Directions to Hostel Pilcomayo
Map & Directions
How to find the Hostel:
From Santiago to Valaparaiso
Take a bus from the Bus Terminal in Santiago, heading for Valparaiso, destination Terminal. Buses leave every 15 minutes up to 22:00. I recommend you reach Valparaiso by day and never accept offers from people who say they work at the Bus Terminal, as they generally offer non-existent promotions, taking the unaware to places far away from the heritage area which, in the long term, turns out to be more costly than going to the centre itself.
From the Bus Terminal
A taxi will cost around $3,000, but never more, to Hostal Pilcomayo in Cerro Concepción.
By microbus, $300, in Avenida Pedro Montt or any bus with the sign Aduana, get off at the Turri Clock building and take the Turri or Concepción lift opposite the Turri building, for $300. When you reach the top, turn left and walk one and a half blocks up the main street, Templeman, with Pilcomayo street on your right.
If you arrive after 22:00, the lift will be closed so, instead of getting off the bus at the Turri clock building, get of at Bellavista where there is a Lider Vecino shop, right on the corner, cross the square called Intendencia and walk into the square called Aníbal Pinto. There walk up two and a half blocks up Almirante Montt until you reach the Anglican church of St. Paul's. This road junction is called 14 Asientos. From here you can reach Templeman street and then Pilcomayo.
From Plaza Anibal Pinto , you can also take a taxi up to the hostel, for $1,000.
In Valparaiso, don't hesitate to ask if you get lost.
