Wonderful hostel. So nice and peaceful and we had great nights' sleep every night. The owner, Emma, is sweet and helpful and keeps the hostel very clean. The kitchen was well stocked and the dining area was a good size. Our double room and the en suite were spacious and spotless. Not much more to add, just a great, relaxing place to stay.

This is the best hostel we have been until now! Great staff. The room was cleaned every day. Very close to the town center but a quiet area. Wonderful!
Lovely staff, we really enjoyed our stay.
Good location, but nothing to make it stand out and fairly expensive for what it is
This place is a jewel. You feel right at home. The owner Ema is unbelievably friendly.
Very nice place to stay, very near to the heart of Pucon (about 80 meters). The hostal is very warmy and familiar and Ema and Valentiva very lovely hosts. The room had everything me and my family needed. The hostal has a good and well equipped kitchen where you can share experiences with other travellers while you are cooking your meal. If you come with a car there is a parking area in the hostal.

We had a lovely stay at Hostal Emalafquen. The owner Ema was so beautiful. She made us feel right at home. We had just arrived from an overnight bus from Santiago and were so cold and tired. She sat us down with cofffee and crackers in front of the fire and just made us feel so comfortable. The room was nice and clean and the kitchen had great facilities. We highly recommend this hostal to anyone visiting Pucon especially a travelling couple

Good comfortable place in a great location in town. Showers are a little cold though.
Its a nice place to stay for a few days in Pucon. The owners are really nice (just spanish) and the rooms are very clean. Also the kitchen is really good equiped! But the nights are cold and the showers also. The walls of the rooms (wood) are really thin... You can hear everything from your neighbours. For a stay in Pucon with warm clothes (for the nights) its a nice hostel.
Hostal Emalafquen is one of the best places i ve stayed at. Emma, the owner, is a very nice lady and extremely clean and helpful. I stayed at a 3 private bed with bathroom and every day we got back and everything was tidy and spotless, they even gave us towels for free. The kitchen is very comfortable and it has a few tables where you get to meet other people. Awsome place to relax and enjoy Pucon. Hostal EMalafquen es uno de los mejores lugares en los que estuve en Chile.
Fantastic hostel! really enjoyed staying here. the rooms were immaculate and our bathroom was so so clean! the kitchen is the cleanest and best equipped we've experienced in south America so far. the location was excellent and the staff were super friendly.
Amazing location. Clean, small rooms. Everything you need. Bathrooms fine.
We enjoyed our stay last year so returning to Pucon we saw no reason to 'check out' some other Hostel when we were quite satisfied with this hostel last year. A feature in many of the Chilean Hostels has been a waste of water in that the HOT water changes to COLD very quickly and you have to leave it running to get the Hot water again. Our Hostel here in Puerto Varnas has got it perfect. ----- they must have installed an Indian Geyser. Ema needs to fix this to get our top rating. * * * * *
By far the best value of all the hostels I stayed in in two weeks in Pucon. I'm hoping to book it again.
Fine place. Kind staff. Good location. Parking was available which was nice for people with vehicles. Towels were not provided as stated on hostelworld and Wi-fi access was patchy. We enjoyed our stay.
This was probably our favourite hostel in the whole of Chile. On the property is the owners house, a small cabin and a second house which we were staying in. This house had 4 bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and a lounge room. Only guests were staying in this house so it had a great atmosphere and the facilities were good. The property also had a very nice garden and you could sit outside and eat your meals. The owner Emma was areally lovely, I would highly reccomend this hostel!
From the minute we arrived we were made to feel at home by the lady of the house. Nothing was too much trouble including having a shower with fresh towels on evening of departure. If you want to stay somewhere homely, with a lovely garden close to bus station and town centre choose hostal emalafquen. It may be straight out of the seventies but its character, charm and 6 ring gas hob are definitely worth the visit. Definitely would recommend to anyone who wants a hostal with a twist.
