The hostel, located a convenient block away from the main bus terminals, has more of the B&B vibe than a backpackers' hostel feel. The two ladies running the hostel are great and very hospitable. The hostel comprises three separate buildings, each with its own kitchen and living room. In low season, you have the whole building to yourself. It's almost... More

LOVED this place. My family of 5 had our own cabana with two bedrooms, and a full well equipped kitchen in the cabana. Emma, the owner, and Valentina, were both amazingly friendly and helpful. Valentina spent an evening with me and my family teaching us how to make Empanadas! The place was warmed by a wood burning stove, into which... More

Very friendly staff who are willing to help. No English is spoken though so the helpfulness will depend on your Spanish proficiency. As the majority of rooms are doubles/twins it is mainly couples who stay here so it may be challenging to meet other travellers. There are three separate buildings. Each building has its own kitchen & common area so... More

Loved this place. stayed here for 2 weeks and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Great outside area for BBQ's. People were always friendly and Emma keeps a close watch over the place. Location was great, close to everything you need but far enough away from the busy part of town. Accommodation is not fancy but is comfortable. Would absolutely stay here... More

As other reviewers have said, this location could not be beat. Close to the main street, grocery stores, veggie stands, and most importantly - bus stations. The women working there were really nice and let us store our bags until our night bus on the last day, which was really appreciated! If you love a brown and yellow color scheme,... More

Overall this hostel was great, very friendly host, and a lovely summer garden. Kitchen was also great, we welcomed being able to cook for ourselves. But.... we had the room upstairs by the street, and did not get much sleep! Pucon in summer rocks on till all hours, and we heard it all! If you could have a room at... More

Great location. Just 2 blocks from main street, which was perfect. the landlady was ever so helpful and accommodating. She made us feel very welcome and allowed me to stay in the room up until the evening. The house is comfortable. Great kitchen. It gets cold in the house but plenty of blankets.

We stayed there for 4 nights and we had a good stay. Th location is a short walk from the town centre and an equally short walk from the busses - a blessing with a 20kg backpack! The room was spotless and comfortable - though the walls being wooden were quite thin - a characteristic of the area. Thankfully everyone... More

Emma makes you feel very welcome. The house has a very well equipped kitchen no breakfast but we were more than happy to have cereal after 3 months of bread and jam! We really enjoyed staying here. It's the perfect place for your base in Pucon.

Stayed two nights. They are more like furnished houses rather than hostels. The house has two rooms one with two beds and the other has three beds. Since this is low season we had the place all to ourselves. Good hot shower, comfortable beds, cooker, microwave, there is even tea and coffee. There is a tv, sofa, dining table and... More
