Spent two nights here and really loved it! Although it was quiet and one night there was only myself and my husband it was soooo nice just to relax with the fire and a bottle of wine! It's very homely and the wood burner keeps it really warm even when it was soooo cold out side! Comfortable beds, good equipped...

Even after having read all the previous reviews on tripadvisor, I wasn't expecting to find such a nice place in Pucón! The hostel is really a home away from home. Got a very warm welcome from the owners - somehow there was no problem with communication even though I don't speak more than 3 words of Spanish (there's a live-in...

This is a great hostal which we booked based on tripadvisor reviews. The location is inconvenient in that it is a 15 min walk to town but also nice in that it is right next to a grocery store and in a very quiet area. We were happy to be removed from the party scene in town. We made several...

Thank you Philippe, you're the best! Our stay at this cosy little place was wonderful. Being taken there upon recommendation from my travelling buddy was the best decision i ever made. The hostel is run by Philippe with help from his parents who pop in from time to time, to keep every need satisfied for the guests. The dorm rooms...

This place is really great. I stayed with my girlfriend in the apartment which was exceptionally good value - we had a double bed, couch, cooker, private bathroom for only a couple of dollars more than your average hostel. Our friend stayed in one of the three-bed dorms and was also impressed. There's a lovely communal area and the most...

This Hostel is run by a lovely Chilean couple. The rooms are quite small (we had the triple room) but they are clean and warm. The walls of the room are thin so you can hear the noise of the kitchen if you happen to get the room near the kitchen. The living area is large and has sofa’s, a...

Staying here was like the best part of living at home - not only was it warm and cosy, but Philippe looked after us like we were part of the family. There was a lovely, cosy living area where you could access the internet, enjoy a few drinks, or just relax by the fire; great kitchen with a supermarket close...

Am just back from a great stay at Ruka Hostel! Loved it! You will feel so at home in this cozy international hostel, - owner Phillippe and his family are so welcoming and gracious. Plus Phillippe is a very qualified outdoor guide (rafting, kayaking, climbing), so he will help you plan all your activities in Pucon. He is fluent in...

We stayed at Ruka Pucon just when it opened. Philippe, the host, knows everything about Pucon and the activities. Did hydrospeeding with him as safety kayaker, he recommended good companies for horse-back riding, volcano climbing and renting a car. We felt very well taken care of. The barbecues Philippe organized meant some of the best evenings we had in Chile....

Philippe is a great help in organising all the excursions. Never had to try to pick between the dozens of companies in town, which would be totally random otherwise. As a result of that, we were more or less guaranteed good and safe activities. We rode horses, rafting, canyonning, thermal springs, climb volcano, hydro speed, and we paid everything at...

“Dorms are very small and cosy, they try to fill up the larger dorm first. I was with a friend in a dorm of 3, but it ended up just being the 2 of us for the whole stay.”
