And absolutely should be. DRAGOMAN Overland Tour Company took us here as part of yet another of their...CHEAP AND NASTY ( as a contrast to cheap and cheerful). It was grossly overcrowded. The kitchen facilities were so inadequate it brought members of our group to tears as she ate her dinner from a pot as that was the only vessel...

The common area is very cozy, the kitchen is very well equipped. The environmental theme is very nice also. However, The pool is dirty and cannot be used, and there were some technical problems in the rooms. Overal, it's a very nice place.

Big, busy and lively hostel with a good atmosphere. However, there is a lot that lets it down. Our room was not in the main building, but outside in a large shed. There were no curtains, and there was one plug socket between twelve people. The large glass door to the room opened directly into the main outdoors social area...

Stayed here for 2 nights in a private room with a large group who stayed in the group dorms. Great location, walking distance to everything. Roomy lounge, small kitchen but fully stocked with all the kitchen essentials to prepare your own rooms. Central wood heater was great for us to dry clothes. Very helpful staff arranging local activities. Volcano views...

We had a fantastic experience at Eco Etnico! The hostel is situated only a couple blocks from the center of town and has an expansive outdoor area with an awesome view of the volcano. The rooms and bathrooms are pretty standard for a hostel but very clean. They also have a parking lot if you are driving to Pucon. Super...

The owner of the hostel was really helpful and gave us great recommendations. One of the best hostels I have ever been. Big garden, guitars, keyboard, big kitchen, parilla, pool in summer and relaxing atmosphere.

My girlfriend and I are driving across Chile and Argentina for 2 months. From a truck driver in the south of Argentina we got the tip to go to Pucon. Hearsay is always good is my opinion and especially traveling. Well, it was amazing. We could park the car inside the gate and we got a nice room. Its an...

An excellent hostel. Offers many places to chill out (cozy living room, huge garden, kitchen with nice setup). It's quite close to the center and very close to the beach and you get an amazing view on the vulcano's red hat during the night. Furthermore if you are a passionate ping pong player, this is definitively a place you shouldn't...

Slightly off the beaten track (but less than a five minute walk from the main drag) this hostel has a lovely, homely atmosphere. The comfortable lounge and dining room is invariably full of friendly guests, just hanging out or providing food from the well-sized, well-equipped kitchen. At 7,500 pesos a night for a comfortable bed, in a dark room (much...

We only stayed 1 night in a private double as we were already booked elsewhere otherwise i would have stayed longer. We arrived late at night and the owner was waiting for us, he was very friendly and helpful despite the time. We had a great sleep and the bed was very comfortable and the room was big. The set...
