La Posada del Embrujo Pucon Reviews
Cosy haven from the chill Apr 19, 2008
We arrived in Pucon late in the evening, when it was dark and cold outside in this mountain town but walking into this lovely, warm and stylish hostel was heavenly. It likes like the house has been renovated fairly recently, and it is absolutely spotless. The kitchen is not big, and would probably be fairly busy during the high season, but our group of 13 is catered for without a problem. The highlight is the wood burning stove in the kitchen, producing the toasty heat that was so nice when we arrived. The beds are probably the most comfortable we´ve slept in on this trip, and the doonas (duvets for the non-Aussies!) are thick and large, so no shivering in the night here. There are wall radiators in the room, so we were quite warm all night. We paid CP15,000 for a double room (big room with two large single beds, and plenty of cupboard space which included keyed lockers for your valuables). This is a good price for Chile, particularly in a tourist area.
The only down side is that there are no en-suite rooms and no double beds but the advantages far outweight the cons (the only reason we gave amenities and bathrooms and showers 4 stars). We were lucky that our room was right next to one of the bathrooms - which wasn´t being used by anyone else - so it was essentially an en-suite room anyway. The bathrooms are also spotless and all common areas are regularly checked to ensure they are kept clean and tidy.
They have a nice collection of mellow CD´s (listening to Norah Jones as I write this) and the staff are very friendly.
We highly recommend this hostel as a home away from home in Pucon, which is one of the adventure capitals of Chile - volcano climbing, rafting, sky diving, fishing, you name it, you can do it in Pucon.
