Pucon is a beautiful little city on the shore of the Lago Villarica in southern Chile, 780km south of Santiago. It’s on of the major tourist destinations during chilenian summer holidays. With the long beautiful beach, plenty of outdoor activities, great nightlife and the perfect shade of the Volcan Villarrica in the background it is easy to figure out why.
Opened in November 2012, House of Colors is a brand new hostel in town. It is perfectly located in the center of Pucon with a breathtaking view of the volcano. Bars and restaurants are reachable within seconds; the huge supermarket is three minutes away and the beach is only a five-minute walk away.
The hostel is run by John, who started traveling at the age of 17, and his sister Bernanda (Bernny) who has worked in the tourist sector all her life. You will hardly find a better combination to run a hostel. Most important to them is that travelers share the community and get together instead of hanging around lonely. That’s why they organize BBQ-events in the hostel’s inner courtyard. When it fills with lively travelers from all over the world you don’t mind that not everything in the hostel is perfectly finished yet.
The hostel has five dorm rooms with four beds, one dorm with sex beds and one double. Rooms are a bit smallish but comfy with wooden interior, beautiful colors and good mattresses.
