We stayed 2 nights and we liked it. Good stuff. Huge backyard with outdoor pool. Nice BBQ area. A separate room for pool and other social games. Nice spacious kitchen to use. The rooms were clean and pretty big, enough space in a double room for sure (dont know the shared rooms). Unfortunately there are only 2 baths for the whole house (1 downstairs, 1 upstairs), entonces if you have to go to toilet urgent you might consider going outside.....

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. For the price, its superb. The rooms are bit cold at times and the breakfast is not included, but the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and its got a cool vibe

We stayed here for 5 nights, 3 of which in between we decided last minute to go and spend in a refuge in the national park... they had no problems with us breaking up our booking and storing bags... which were locked away securely...

The people we met here probably helped alot but we ended up having the best time here really making it our home (it is a big house) and cooking drinking and chilling out there....

The staff were chilled helpful and friendly... the location is a fair walk in the rain but very quiet and still conventient... the have their own bikes which we enjoyed riding around on for a day and hired cheaply from them....

It was old and run down... the carpet and walls for example are marked and scuffed but if you can overlook a bit of wear and tear it is uber cozy and fun.

Highly recommend it... but if you want modern convenience and shiny new rooms don't stay here... the kitchen was also really good.

Room Tip: run down in a nice cozy way... very good stay

We stayed here for three nights just when it got cold in Chile, and this place is freezing. But the American girl working here is so great she warmed up the place:) (the other woman here, not so much...)
Nice, spacious rooms for three people, good kitchen with bbq outside and nice area to chill, read and watch tv. Nice place to meet people, but can be a bit noisy. A good, cheap place to stay in Pućon.

This place is one to miss - unclean, uncared for and badly run- no welcoming vibes here.

We paid our money (requested before we put down our bags or saw our room...) but later checked out putting the paid money down to experience.

There are so many more nicer and better valued (cleaner and more welcoming, I could go on...) don't stay here.

Try Geronimo instead

I originally made my reservation for three nights and ended up staying at the etnico hostel in pucon for ten days. It's a great hostel to relax and get to know some cool people. The backyard with the pool makes the place. And the location- about equidistant from the main street and the beach. The people are all really chill and eager to help you with organizing all your adventures in the area. Definitely go up the volcano, it's the best thing in Pucon. Overall, I loved my stay here.

Pucon is an amazing place and the hostel we stayed at was very informative of the area. The rooms were large and spacious with hot water. They have a lounge area and a nice open backyard with swimming pool. Their big fluffy dog is definitely one of the highlights! The family was very accommodating and we wish them all the best! Be sure to pencil in Pucon on your travels. One of our favorite places!
