We had a really great stay at Hostal Emalafquen. The hostess is the sweetest lady. She does only speak Spanish, but our travel vocabulary did just fine. The hostal is clean, have a well equipped kitchen and is placed really centrally in Pucon. We were lucky being here in low season so we had a whole little house to our... More

We stayed for 4 nights and absolutely fell in love with the place. Señorita Emma is the perfect hostess and can't do enough to help you. Anything you need is never a problem. The hostel is IMMACULATE, absolutely spotless everywhere. And the rooms / bathrooms comfortable, spacious and quiet. We ended up cooking every night we stayed at this hostel,... More

My wonderful host Emma invited me to feel like I was at home, and in this place that is easy to do. My room was very comfortable and spacious - good bed, good, shower, good TV, good heating. The shared kitchen is very well stocked for all your self catering needs. The dining room is a little dim and there... More

This is more like a small hotel than a hostel since rooms have private bathroom and a TV! but in addition there is a well-equipped kitchen. The location is great for walking to restaurants. The owner, Emma is on the premises all day and available for any thing you need to know. If you are travelling in a group in... More

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
