I found it to be a really sociable hostel and really enjoyed my stay. I stayed in a 12-person dorm for 9,000CHP per night. I originally booked for one night, but decided to stay there longer. There were no issues with noise that I noticed. You can get a key for the outside gate. My only gripe was that when...

Good and cheap hostel, with beds and rooms very clean. It has rooms from 12,10,6, 3 beds. I recommend staying in the 6 bed room with personal bathroom. The hostel has a nice swiming pool, some hamacs to take a nap and bike rental.

Fantastic hostel! Rodolfo and his team were so welcoming and friendly with plenty of suggestions of things to do in and around Pucon. The kitchen is very well equipped and the recycling system is amazing! Outside is gorgeous, plenty of open spaces and places to relax, Thomas the Newfoundland is one very cool dog, the bbq/grill is a nice option...

The hostel was very nice. No breakfast included though but a bit kitchen for anyone willing to use. They have a pretty cheap bike rental. I would only complain about the fact that they asked us to keep quiet in the lounge cos people were sleeping (which for me is not a very good set up for such a hostel)...

I looked for a combination that will give me the convenience of hotel but with the social atmosphere and information and activities of an hostel. Also I wanted to be able to make my own meals. I booked my own private room And got all I was looking for. The information and help I got planning my activities was extra...

We stayed two nights as part of a bus tour. There were only two toilets (one was upstairs in the middle of a dorm) and we counted at least 20 guests. Also, a terrible smell emanated from beneath my bed although I could not find the source. Other guests were loud and there were no towels provided unless you requested....

I've stayed there for 2 nights in a private room. The room itself was quite spacious and clean, but there were way too few bathrooms for the number of rooms. In addition to that there was an unpleasant gas smell inside of the bathrooms while I was there. The WiFi also wasn't working properly in my room, only in the...

This hostel has such a warmth essence in it, it is simply impossible to not feel at ease while staying there. The rooms are spacious, clean and have lockers if you need to leave valuables in your room. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and the living room is also as a cozy as every other common areas...

This hostel is a superb place to relax and to use as a base to venture for activities around Pucon. The house has big living room and kitchen, and and a nice garden with terrace and BBQ. Pao and Rodolfo -the owners of the hostel- are lovely people and help in any way they can with activities around Pucon. Bikes...

We stayed at Etnico in December 2013. The managers are friendly and we appreciated their environmental focus--they provided plastic bags for reuse and also had composting. The rooms are somewhat outdated but comfortable and very clean. The hostel has a nice, warm atmosphere and a big yard. There are bikes to rent and there is free wifi. They do not...
