“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

We were a group of four travelling together. From the first moment we arrived Eduardo and the others welcomed us and offered us lots of info on trips and things to do in Puerto Madryn. They let us hang out at the hostel for a full day after we had checked out and even cook. Everything was always clean and the atmosphere was nice. Lots of backpackers chilling out but no late night parties or noise. All in all it was a delightful experience and we recommend this place to anyone going to Puerto Madryn.

I thought I was not going to like this hostel because it had eight beds and only one bathroom for the dorm. I was wrong! I enjoyed my stayed here immensely! Besides our bathroom, we could use the one outside – which was nicer.
The price was great – A$100.00 per night – you cannot beat that!
I did not like breakfast too much because it seemed that they served too many sweets with it – but others really enjoyed it.
The staff – especially Eduardo and Rodrigo were very friendly and helpful.
They provided clean towels with your stayed and also helped with tours.
The common area was nice and comfy!

I have lived in Argentina for a year, and visited most parts of the country. La Tosca is hands down one of the best hostel I've been to. First time I visited with a friend, and then a month later I came back with my family. I can compliment the facilities (very good), the price (cheap), or the location (very centric), but what stands out the most is the amazing staff. Eduardo, Rodrigo and Paola are awesome, very helpful and genuinely interested in their guests.

Awesome place

Room Tip: The 8-person dorm is fine - but if you're traveling more than one person, pick the 2-person/4-pe...

Super nice hostel! Great staff ( they all know your name and in the morning they bring you coffee or tea with sweet breakfast), good beds, and cosy garden and common space where it's very easy to get good new friends from all over the world!
:-) enjoy!
Bests from Evelyne!

Got to that place on a recommendation and never doubted my decision. The staff is very helpful (thx Eduardo & Rodrigo), they have lots of infos about tours and the localities. They even had recommendations on the weather, what tour you should do on what day.
The room (8bed dorm) was big. Enough space to handle your stuff. Clean and comfi. 2 kitchens make it easy that everyone may cook its dinner.
Only little thing: the rooms on the ground floor seem a little dark.

Room Tip: If you get the chance ask for a room on the first floor.

We found this place short notice on our way to puerto madryn. From the initial phone call to the last night we had great hosts- in particular Eduardo who works the evening shift was very kind and considerate, and the rodrigo in the morning was chipper and greeted us all by name. The atmosphere is very relaxing and it has a good location for that atmosphere as well. Overall a very good hostel to stay at.

Bearing in mind this is a hostel, and not a hotel, this ranks as one of the best we have ever stayed in. Edwardo and Rodrigo actually remembered our names (there were 6 of us) and gave us additional help with our 2 grandchildren (1 & 3 yr old). Room was a little dark but clean as a whistle and very practical. The rooms are all set around a small central very quiet and tidy garden - with a hammock. Facilites for cooking, washing etc. are great and there is a comfortable common room at reception. We left a child's mini-computer behind and they mailed it on to us. So we have nothing but plus positive for the friendly staff, booking on-line was easy, the hostel arranged all of our tours with pickup at the hostel, the clean rooms etc. We stayed 4 nights.
