“Great place to stay in Pucon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We stayed at Donde German (the original) for two nights, which was the minimum time they would allow. Our room was in one of the cabins (own bathroom) in the backyard and it was great! . The cabins are spacious, clean and functional. They can also help you sort out tours and activities. Their dog Rayito is the most adorable thing in the world!!!

The hostel was a really nice surprise. It is all wooden and you instantly feel at home. The rooms are all clean and mostly have a great view of the volcano. Some of them are en suites, but the shared bathrooms are very clean as well. The hostel has a back garden with a pool and a couple of tables to relax at. The staff Tatyana, Boris and Jorge are extremely friendly and helpful. Would go back to the Nuevo Donde German anytime! Even loved how the house smelled - like a really nice sauna.

We had planned to stay here for only 2 nights but once we arrived and realized how fantastic this Hostal is, we stayed for a further 3 nights! Totally recommend it! Our room was great with fluffy blankets and a view to volcan villarica, bathrooms are shared but there are a few to choose from, so we never needed to wait. Downstairs is a large comfortable common area with a huge fire place. Perfect surroundings to enjoy some Chilean red!

The only downside is that there is no breakfast included, however given the massive and fully equip kitchen, frying ourselves some eggs was no drama.

Highly Recommended!!

We really found Donde German to be an elegant place. The kitchen is the most spacious we have seen and there is a pool in the back and a wonderful living room with great views of the volcano. The rooms are better than most four star hotels. The accomodation has a lot of guests that are Chilean vacationers with family and that adds a distinctively different feeling than most hostels in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the volcano and prepare to be wowed

Stayed at Donde German for a number of nights and were really taken care of. The building is gorgeous, spotless and the kitchen wonderful to cook in. The garden with it's pool and view of Volcan Villarica is very special. Highly recommend.

Very close to the bus terminal and Lider supermercado, yet removed from town, and quiet. Nice lawn for basking in the sun. Kitchen privileges w/adequately supplied appliances and dishes, utensils etc. We had the double room at the back with a view of the gorgeous Villarica. A little problem with hot water supplied. I came back from biking mid-afternoon and couldn't get a hot shower, and there seemed to be none from that point through the next morning, when our group left. Owners are pleasant and accomodating, but can be hard to track down. They own a 2nd larger guest house closer to town, so that may have been the problem.

We were travelling with an organised tour group but had arranged our own accommodation. We stayed here for two nights and compared to where the rest of our group stayed and what they got for their money this place was heaven! Really nice, warm comfortable, cozy rooms with a massive en suite bathroom. All had a very homely feel to the place and although there as a bit of a language barrier with the staff, they couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. If I ever return to Pucon then this is definitely the place I would stay at again.
