We arrived in Pucon on a bus from Chillan (after a train from Santiago) and after the combined 10 hours travel the Hostel Geronimo was a wonderful surprise. There is always an element of suspense when you arrive at a hotel you’ve booked over the internet, but Geronimo was everything that was promised and more. It was within walking distance (European walking distance, not North American!! IE 5 blocks) of everything, including the main street (O’Higgins), the casino, the beach, and various local tour operators. The staff is very friendly and helpful (and while their command of english may not be the best, we got by just fine with our limited command of Spanish and a phrase book! Remember, they speak Spanish in Chile, so you should at least try to speak their language!) While the rooms were on the small side, ours included a double bed, tv, a window that opened, and a private bathroom with a shower stall and was cleaned and had new towels daily. The hotel was very clean, and had a wonderful breakfast every morning including fresh bread, jam and eggs. We had friends staying at two other hotels/hostels in Pucon at the same time and we feel that of the three, Geronimo was by far the best. Overall we very much enjoyed our 5 day stay at the Hostel Geronimo and would recommend it to anyone.
