“Very friendly hostel”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

This was a very comfortable and convenient place to stay. It was one block from the Main Street and several grocery stores. We stayed in the outside cabin with 3 bedroom and had the room with the orivate bath . There was a shared kitchen with all supplies and a shared common room. We used the kitchen as we found the restaurants exprnsive in Pucon . The hostal seemed to attract friendly and quiet guests. Convenient parking included.

We stayed in Emalafquen for thee nights. The owner is a very nice and friendly persons. She doesn´t speak english very well, but she tries to help you with everything.
The rooms were very clean and the beds were perfect! The very clean kitchen had everything you need. It is perfect.
They also have a garden so you can sit outsite to have lunch or dinner. Check out is at 11.00 am. We left that day at 21.30 by bus and we could use all the common areas in the kitchen for free. We could also use the shower and they gave us (free) towels to go to the Hot Springs, even after we checked out. They did not accept tips for the use of the hostal the whole day.
The location is great. It´s a two minute walk to the busstation and 5-10 minutes to the main street.
Great, clean hostel with very friendly staff!

The owner of this hostel is the sweetest person we have met in Chili. We arrived early in the morning with an overnight bus ride from Santiago. Our room wasn't ready, by she offered a clean room for us to relax and shower. She even offered us breakfast and much needed coffee after a long night bus ride. The kitchen area was extremely clean and was one of the best equipped kitchen. There is a huge orchard in the backward with apple, peaches and what not trees. The setup on the hostel is extremely cute and its hardly a 2 min walk to the Main Street. Thanks Hostal Emalafquen for a wonderful stay in Pucon.

This lovely hostel is run by an older woman who is the owner. It is a great, peaceful place to rest between all the activities in Pucon. Located just 1 block from the bus station and 2 blocks from the city center make the location idea. Even though it is right in the city it is on a very quiet side street. Had a private room with ensuite bath there for 2 nights in the front of the main house facing the street and it was quiet. The rooms are large and very clean. They are serviced everyday. Beds are made, floors are swept and bath cleaned. Free bag storage and use of the downstairs bath and shower are all allowed even before you check in or after you check out at no additional charge. Best equipped kitchen I have seen in a hostel. Great for self catering. I highly recommend this hostel. PS: Be aware there is no breakfast of any kind served at this hostel but you can self cater your breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back off the street may be a little quieter.

Stayed for a few nights at this hostel, was greeted warmly upon early arrival - room was ready quickly. Stayed in a private room w/ bathroom - was perfectly fine. The best thing about this hostel is really Ema and the staff - she is warm, kind and incredibly kind. She let us shower and have use of the bathroom after our trek up the volcano and wait/use the kitchen while we waited for our late departing overnight bus to Santiago.

The kitchen is set up well - everything you need. The garden is really pretty and has a huge peach tree - if you're lucky you might find a ripe one.

Location is great - close to main road. Fab little place.
