My wife and I spent six amazing days at Pokao Hostel. The establishment is located a couple of kilometers outside of downtown Hangaroa. The property is a wonderful oasis of trees, hammocks, flowers and animals (friendly chicken, horses and cats roam around on the property and always welcome you as you come back from a long day of trekking or...

The owners and staff were exceptional!! Went out of their way to ensure you enjoyed your stay. They took me for a tour on day one and I even got to visit their horses out on the island. Also the breakfast was the best I've had whilst traveling. Homemade breads, juices accompanied with Jam, Avocado. This place is in a...

-We were picked up from the airport - a very welcome gesture and driven to the Hostal. The room was clean and the shared kitchen had everything you could need to cook with; great since eating out and food is very expensive. The owner welcomed us with a mapand a chat about what we wanted to do and how best...

The greatest asset of this hotel is the personal attention from the owner. She picks up guests at the airport and drives them back for no additional cost. And is always ready and willing to get to know them and offer help and advice. Breakfasts are very nice as well. The hotel is set in a beautiful garden, and even...

We had a great time at Hostal Pukao. It’s a bit further out of town (still within walking distance from town), but this means there is a nice big garden, in which you can chill out. The free garden entertainment consists of a cute young horse, 4 cats and some chickens. The breakfast is served on a cosy veranda with...

Maria and her staff provide excellent service - starting from airport transfers, showing around the village, tips all the way to adapting the plentiful breakfast to your taste. Only five units, peaceful garden setting. A very nice base to explore the Island - but you need a push bike, scooter or other means of transport as it is some 2...

This place is a true gem on Easter Island. The owner Maria really makes it exceptional; she cooks a large breakfast every morning of eggs with breads, cold cuts, fresh homemade juice, coffee. She goes out of her way to look after each person in a way that is so motherly and helpful but not overbearing. She arranged airport pickup...

I really enjoyed my stay at Hostal Pukao. Maria takes care of your customers. Because she is working at the airport, she is not always around and prepares the breakfast before she is leaving.
