“Great choice!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 via mobile

I've passed great moments in Etnico Eco Hostel.

There were few people hosted there and we had serenity to relax during the night and proximity from the main street to get there early in the morning. There is good places in the surroundings.

The staff is very helpful and do everything to make you feel comfortable.

The dorms are a little cold, but it's not a big deal because they provide plenty of blankets if necessary.

You also have full access to the kitchen anytime.

The place was recommended by my previous hostal which was good. But this house was horrible. Two big smelly, hairy dogs (who jump in the pool, so you don't want to swim in there anymore..) Inside everything was dirty, smelly and moisty. It was very noisy and it looked like the used temporarely build bathrooms. If you don't mind drugs, you can go there. It irritated me because the kept asking me to take it (you are Dutch...) so I left the place real quick!

Room Tip: If you still want to go here, pick a room downstairs

Pucon is a great spot in chile with some great hostels, and this one is no doubt in standard.
Stayed here for 3 nights and would have stayed for more if they had room for us.
It's a beautiful place, not far from the center though not on the main st. At my first night there I stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was amazing! Private bathroom with hot tub! In the second one which was much bigger the conditions wasn't that good but still okay. Great kitchen, cool pool table and a sweet actual pool. It might get a bit too hot in the mornings if you sleep at the big dorm but in overall it's a nice place, even if it costs a bit more than other places in Pucon.

Room Tip: If you want to spoil yourself a bit, pay extra for the smaller dorm and enjoy the great facilities.

The hostel itself is pretty and is set in a wooden lodge at one corner of town. It prides itself on employing green practices like recycling and saving water.

Of course this means some inconveniences for guests. There are only two bathrooms/showers and waiting to shower or brush your teeth in the mornings can be a pain. The hostel houses over thirty people, so this means a ratio of 15:1 for each bathroom. I waited 40 minutes one morning because I really had to use the bathroom and had to forgo my morning tour as a result.

Staff were also a little slack and were hardly at the front desk so you always had to walk around e hostel looking for them when you needed a towel or had to check out. One night, some drunk guests were blasting loud, thumping music in the general areas till 5.30am (walls are very, very thin so noise travels easily). None of the staff bothered to tell them to quieten down. I had to get up, dress and walk out into the cold to tell them myself.

The general dorm houses 14 people, so it gets very noisy and annoying. Opt for one of the smaller dorms (4 and 6 beds) for a small fee.

I had no idea what to espect when I got there but it turned out I had i wonderful time. People are coming from everywhere; the service is awesome; all the activities can be reserved at the hostel's desk; it's close to everything and it really feels safe. It might be hard to find at first because of the trees next to the fence, but it's the only "bad" thing I could say about it.
