“Great Location & Awesome Manager!”
Reviewed December 27, 2010

My friends and I were here when this hostel first opened in November 2010. The owner/manager (Philippe) is extremely friendly and helpful. He is well connected in Pucon, and in a town with so many extreme activities it is very important that someone will help you understand which companies/guides are reputable.
The location is great, an easy walk to anything you need in Pucon. It's close to grocery stores, which is nice as they have a well stocked communal kitchen. Also, Philippe often hosts an authentic Chilean BBQ for anyone who wishes to join from the Hostel. It's a great way to meet other travellers if that's what you're looking for.

We chose this hostel because of it's closeness to the centre of Pucon and it's price & we were not disappointed. The manager is fluent English so the fact that we spoke no Spanish was never a problem for us. He also arranged activities for us to do during our time there and made the best Chilean BBQ ever! We highly recommend this hostel & actually hope to return again next year. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

This is one of my favourite hostels in all of my world travels. The manager is friendly, outgoing, and very helpful. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The hostel is in a great location, so you can walk into the centre of Pucon. The hostels name Ruka in the native Mapuche language means "home" and this was for sure my home away from home for my time in Pucon. I highly recommend staying at Ruka Pucon hostel!
