The Experience

Nuestro hostel es pequeño, super tranquilo y de viajeros de paso. Generalmente recibimos muchos ciclistas y turistas que vienen a conocer el Parque Nacional Los Alerces. No tenemos demasiadas camas y el trabajo suele ser bastante liviano, con mucho tiempo libre donde podras aprovechar para leer, relajar, admirar el paisaje. En los dias libres podes caminar hasta alguno de los lagos que rodean el pequeño pueblo. ¡Te esperamos!

La experiencia en el Piuke Mapu fue excelente, me sentí parte de una familia gigante, todos fueron amables, serviciales y cordiales. Aprendimos mucho sobre todo del dueño del hostel, Dario es una persona multifacética, sabe mucho de todo, es dinámico, aprendimos a hacer kayak, a reciclar, a limpiar de otra manera, fue muy gratificante y enriquecedora la experiencia. Por otra parte, quiero destacar el amor y la amabilidad en el hostel, el día de mi cumpleaños me hicieron sentir parte de una familia hermosa como es el Piuke, me sentí como en mi casa y lo aprecio muchísimo.✈️✨❤️

Las semanas en el Piuke Mapu fueron increíbles!Cholila es hermosa, y el Hostel tiene un clima muy amiguero y cálido. Con Eve disfrutamos de muchos momentos con les huéspedes, e incluso con el equipo del hostel. Pudimos conocer todos los lugares que teníamos pensados además de disfrutar de la tranquilidad del pueblo a través de los famosos ventanales del Piuke. Realmente las tareas a realizar se mezclaban con el día a día y no se sentió como una jornada de trabajo pesada. Dario es una gran persona y siempre se manejo con mucho respeto y cariño, e Iván siempre nos ayudó con la mejor onda.

Experiencia enriquecedora al máximo. Lo recomiendo y exijo que voluntarien en Piuke Mapu y conozcan la Patagonia Argentina de la manera en la que yo lo hice. Una gran calidad humana dentro y fuera del hostel sin dudar. Darío e Ivan super amables asique no duden en hacerlo.
