We arrived at Donde German via our rent a car. I had emailed the hostel before arriving and they were awaiting our arrival with free secured parking. The hostel is brand new, and are building another closer to the centre of town. The lodge is huge, and has a great communal kitchen and common area. The hostel is super well organized, obviously designed from the bottom up to cater the hostel clientele.
We stayed in a double room in a building just next door. Also brand new, they were kind of like chalets, the mattress was super comfortable with fluffy towels and bedding. There was a new TV in the room and wifi access (could be bumped up a little as the connection wasn't great).
We went on the Volcano tour with the company that is owned by Donde German's owner. It's great because you get all your equipment fitted out the night before and all you have to do is wake up and hop in the mini van. On the return they have beers and snack waiting for the celebration.
The hostel is a little walk from town, 10 minutes or so. But the view from our cabin window was the Volcano, without any other obstructions in the way. Amazing! Pucon is great because everything is open late, and the attitude of everyone in town is great. We had a great time and will definately be back!
Only downside were the walls were a little thin, so we got to hear some phone conversations next door... but just a small complaint for such a wonderful property. This is almost not a hostel, I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a bed in Pucon, not just backpackers.
