Great new 2nd kitchen, location very nice, right at the lake & main street with volcano view, good briefing for activities on arrival (should include free walking tour :) ), nice new heating. There are quite some bathrooms, but only a few near the dorms. Some of the dorms are tiny. Very instable wifi and internet at the computer during our stay.

Best hostel I've stayed in so far. The staff is just the best. James and the team give great advise and go out drinking with you and have insider tips for pucon and whole South America. I would always go back to that hostel and enjoy the time right at the lake with the view on the volcano! Total recommendation.

Awesome location, staff that remember you by name, professional cleaning staff that keep it spick and span. Secure lockers to keep your gear in between check in / arrival of your bus. With the ideas of the owner James, it can only get even better. One con is the wifi. It was down a lot and only available in the main house / front yard. An additional router in the cabin or out the back for people hanging out there or sleeping there would be great ( especially for your winter crowd)

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your comments and feedback! Yes, you are right the internet connection in Pucon is pretty poor. We are already working on getting a separate connection for the back area of the hostel to try and have this resolved exactly as you suggested. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

In 5 months in South America, this is one of my favourite hostels. Lovely house and garden on the waterfront. Great staff who organise all activities with no hassle. Lockers and hooks in room and each bed has light, shelf and power outlet. Well equipped kitchen. Lockers outside for luggage storage. Sociable atmosphere but not rowdy so you can get a good nights sleep. They let me join in bbq while waiting fot my nightbus. I had a great time. Highly recommend.

Extremely friendly staff and owners! We were able to be the first to spend the night in their new treehouse and also their campervan. Had a BBQ with the staff and other hostel goers on the front lawn which was amazing. Definitely suggest coming here!

Favorite hostel in Chile! Location (lakeview sunsets), staff/owners, and atmosphere are only some of its many great attributes. Staff is friendly and informative about all activities and tours this beautiful town offers. Facilities are clean and a brand new kitchen is great for family dinners! The place offers special accommodations including a Treehouse (lake views) and a Glamping experience. Beds are comfortable, rooms spacious and after a night or two, it feels like a 2nd home! GO CHILI KIWI!

This was the best hostel i stayed at in Chili. The atmosphere is great, thanks to the excellent staff. Sam, Jeremy, Rachel, Peter and James are great and will help you with booking trips and advice. They organise events in the hostel like a farewell bbq when a group left that had stayed there for over a week. They just opened a third (awesome) kitchen and two tree houses with a lake view! Good to meet fun and relaxed people and still be able to get a good night sleep.. Coming back soon!

Couldn't be happier with Chili Kiwi and the staff. They were really informative and let you know all about what to do in Pucon, which made a big difference. Everyone was super friendly as well. You could have a great day just hanging out with the staff and residents if you wanted. Pucon was the best 5 days of my trip, and It's not just a coincidence that I stayed at Chili Kiwi.

I have two words of advice about this hostel: stay here! The beds are comfy, the staff are exceptional, the location on the edge of the lake is breath taking and booking all your adventure activities couldn't be easier/cheaper. The atmosphere is so welcoming, that after a long day of hiking you feel like you're heading home. Power points/book shelves at every bed and very sizable lockers in the dorms. Hot, clean showers. Probably the best hostel I have stayed in to date. I didn't want to leave.

This hostel is in the best location and has the best staff. They are very helpful, fun, friendly, and accommodating. We ended up booking two more nights because we loved it here so much. It's a great ambiance, very relaxed, with a cute dog and awesome tours. We went horseback riding, kayaking, and to some of the most incredible hot springs. It was great to be picked up and dropped off right at the hostel door. Loved it and if we are ever in Pucon again we will be back!
