Sarah was a great, and helped us with planning a lot of the activities. The hostel is really nice because it is right on the lake front. The hostel also has kayaks you can use. The place has a great vibe and a lot of positive energy and nice people. The only thing was the cabin room was a little cold. We tried to combat it with the wood burning stove, and leaving the door open. Overall, we are really glad we stayed here and would highly recommend it.

The owners were the friendliest and most helpful I have met and their enthusiasm for their hostel and Pucon was infectious! They have very cleverly installed lockers for guests to leave their bags before check in time or after check out. The double room we stayed in was very comfortable and the facilities were great. Peter and James recommended and organised a number of activities for us including taking out their kayaks on the lake and took us to a great cafe/bar too. Super wi-fi and kitchen.

Really helpful staff that go out of their way to organise things, nice little puppy to entertain, great location on the lake front!

This hostel still in its infancy is propelled from being a very good hostel to exemplary by the enthusiasm and expertise of the staff. The kitchen maybe on the smaller side for the amount of people the hostel can hold, however we stayed when they were at full capacity in low season, a compliment to them in itself. Bathrooms are numerous, hot water instantaneous . During our stay there were problems with WIFI connectivity and power outages, however the staff were quick to rectify.

This is one of the best hostels in Chile. The owner and staff are super helpful. James provided recommendations on daily excursions around town, as well as the best dining and night life in Pucon. On excursions, Marie carried a camera and photographed some of our important moments. Sarah did an excellent job welcoming guests and answering any questions. The property is clean and well maintained. The beds are comfy and the rooms are well heated. If you are in Pucon, def check out ChiliKiwi

We stayed at the Chili Kiwi for over a week and it is the best hostel we have stayed at. As soon as you arrive you feel welcome, security is excellent and the owners are very responsive to feedback. They give you all the information about everything you can do in the town (and where and how to get discounts on the activities- really helpful!) and the atmosphere of the place is warm and friendly. Hot showers every time after our snow stuff and central heating AND Cody fireplaces. Stay here!!

I am Chilean. Chili kiwi is the first hostel i have arrived in my own country. Nice location so close to the lake in Pucón. You are in 3 minutes walking to the center and 5 min in the main streets of the town (fresia/Ohiggins). Sara, part of the staff and the another girl i don't remember the name, are nice people and make you feel confortable and welcome. thanks!

I had the best time in Chili Kiwi: relaxing and cosy lounge, great rooms and beds, big kitchen and everything very clean. The staff was lovely and helpful, they can book a lot of activities that Pucon offers, all of them very nice. Hostel 100% recommended.

Fantastic hostel. The staff is really nice and has spent a lot of time thinking about how to make Chili Kiwi the best it can be. They really try to make everyone's stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, and have created a great atmosphere for the guests to enjoy.

I just LOVED this hostel! The staff wes incredible at helping us find good activities, transport and nice restaurants. They even came with us to have a beer and randomly made us cookies ! Also the owner has a baby labrador pup and allowed us to play with it! The only thing is that there's a few informations that are wrong on their Hostel World's page as the fact that they DON'T accept credit card and paypal and that there is LINEN INCLUDED. So prepare yourself knowing that ;).

We had a fantastic stay here. The location was just off the main street with a great view of the lake and volcano. Facilities were clean and well kept. When we ran into travel troubles, they welcomed us with cookies and had no problem checking us in late as well as scheduling the volcano tour at 10:30pm the night before. They also have an exclusive Volcano guide who was tremendous and enabled us to summit. This hostel made our Pucon stay. Highly recommend it.

This was by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The central heating was great (especially during the winter), there are plenty of bathrooms, the kitchen as got everything you need, and the beds are extremely comfy. The staff are super friendly and the hostel provides many tours at competitive prices. You won't regret staying here!
