Iain,

You can try Hostal Thayer.
Luis Thayer Ojeda Ave. # 746, phone (56-2) 233 9703.
I know one biker that was there and he recommends this place.
By the way I live in Santiago and if you need some additional help or advise you can contact me by mail

Regard

Fernando

Hi Iain
You could try the SOS hostel near the train station in down town Santiago.
Scott the owner can be found at the station most days handing out flyers for the hostel. He has parking for about 6 or 7 bikes, I was there in march with my girlfriend it was clean and tidy and we were able to service the bikes there.Sorry i can't find the address but i think that they are in the lonely planet and have a web address. Hope this helps Skip

Thanks for the reply and Scotts place sounds very biker friendly, I´ll see if I can turn up the address.



Christy,

I´m in Porta Natales, then heading up to the glacier, so am a week or so away. Keep me posted as it´d be good to meet up if it pans out. Are you heading south or north?

Iain.

hi Iain, I'm heading south but not sure how far down I'm going to go. Are you coming up through Chile or Argentina? Which route do you think you'll take as I might meet you on the way down

"...SOS hostel near the train station in down town Santiago"

Does anyone have the address or Scott´s email address, as I do not have a lonley planet guide book and my google search has not turned anything up.

Thanks again.

Iain.

Christy,

Where are you now, I´m through Santiago now and in La Serena, a very nice old town in Chile, before heading up to the Atacama.

Cheers,

Iain.
