Loved this place. stayed here for 2 weeks and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Great outside area for BBQ's. People were always friendly and Emma keeps a close watch over the place. Location was great, close to everything you need but far enough away from the busy part of town. Accommodation is not fancy but is comfortable. Would absolutely stay here...

As other reviewers have said, this location could not be beat. Close to the main street, grocery stores, veggie stands, and most importantly - bus stations. The women working there were really nice and let us store our bags until our night bus on the last day, which was really appreciated! If you love a brown and yellow color scheme,...

Overall this hostel was great, very friendly host, and a lovely summer garden. Kitchen was also great, we welcomed being able to cook for ourselves. But.... we had the room upstairs by the street, and did not get much sleep! Pucon in summer rocks on till all hours, and we heard it all! If you could have a room at...

Great location. Just 2 blocks from main street, which was perfect. the landlady was ever so helpful and accommodating. She made us feel very welcome and allowed me to stay in the room up until the evening. The house is comfortable. Great kitchen. It gets cold in the house but plenty of blankets.

We stayed there for 4 nights and we had a good stay. Th location is a short walk from the town centre and an equally short walk from the busses - a blessing with a 20kg backpack! The room was spotless and comfortable - though the walls being wooden were quite thin - a characteristic of the area. Thankfully everyone...

Emma makes you feel very welcome. The house has a very well equipped kitchen no breakfast but we were more than happy to have cereal after 3 months of bread and jam! We really enjoyed staying here. It's the perfect place for your base in Pucon.

Stayed two nights. They are more like furnished houses rather than hostels. The house has two rooms one with two beds and the other has three beds. Since this is low season we had the place all to ourselves. Good hot shower, comfortable beds, cooker, microwave, there is even tea and coffee. There is a tv, sofa, dining table and...

We arrived to a lovely welcome from the owner who showed us around and made us tea. The double room we had was a good size and the bed was really comfortable with lots of blankets. The en suite bathroom was clean and the shower had plenty of hot water. The hostel is located a really short walk from the...

Everything is relative. The criteria is not equal to a hostel in Pucon and a business hotel in a big city. This hostel is modest, basic, very very clean, nice common kitchen and a very nice hostess. Rooms are very small, not even a chair or a table fits inside but on the other hand there is a lot of...

I came here for a few nights during the low season in April. The property has 3 houses: the owners live in 1, and the other 2 are for guests. Well, I had an entire house to myself for a night! When the log-burning heater was on, it was comfortable, but when that fire died down the house was freeeeeezing!...

“The cabanas were great, but we never saw the rooms in the main hostal area.”
 of 5 bubbles LoriWynn, 13 Mar 2014 | Read review
“We were in the little cabin in the back. Nice because it was just two rooms, but when there are 5 people in there, it's pretty cramped! Only one person in the kitchen at a time because of the layout. It was quieter in the back. The room with two beds got a lot of sunlight during the day so was quiet warm, but it cools down considerably at night.”
