I had a great few days here in Pucon, waiting for the wind to die down so I could go skiing. Not only was the hostel great, there were a few other crazy travellers around for the weekend I spent. It was warm, I was provided with a heater for my room, and the fire was always on. Nothing bad at all to say about Etnico Eco Hostel, I would go back here without a doubt if I find myself back in Pucon.
