“Good location, good staff, good breakfast and warm water...”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

My wife and I stayed in this nice hostel during our whale-trip. We chose this option based on the website presentation and the following correspondance with the hotel.

Check-in was quick and the employee provided us a lot of information regarding the possibilities of the zone. The main area, with the reception, was big and with table, chairs, cauches, tv, etc. There was a second area as well with kitchen facilities, so there was space enough for everybody.

The room was on the 1. floor, very small, but just enough to get inside with our backpacks. The bed was so-so, like in most hostels, and then we had to share the bathroom with the room next door. As that room as empty, it didn't cause any problems for us. There was warm water, which is the most important, so we were happy about the bathroom facility.

The hostel has a nice location in the center of Puerto Madryn, close to the sea and very convienient for a basic traveller.

The breakfast was nice with coffee, bread, cake, marmalade, butter, etc....so very nice. They even came with more cake....:-)

We will be back here the next time we go to Trelew, and can recommend it to everybody.

Stayed in the dorm room of this hostel for 3 nights. All was very clean, comfortable and well organised. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Puerto Madryn is a fantastic place to visit and I would definitely recommend this hostel. Eduardo also made a great flan on our last night which was a really nice touch, thanks.

We emailed la tosca from buenos aires the night before our 20 hr bus ride to Puerto Madryn. We received a friendly response within 24 hours. A staff member was there to greet us as we arrived at 630am and allowed us to check in right away.

The location is central, the grounds are clean and charming, with 2 kitchens and a big common room. The rooms are simple and the beds are comfortable.

The best part of this hostel is definitely the staff! Everyone we met was helpful, cheerful, and ready to accommodate their guests in any way they can. They booked us on a great tour of Peninsula Valdez and had freshly baked cakes ready every morning for breakfast!

The rooms are smallish and basic with an adjacent bathroom shared with another room. Fairly priced accomodation. Excellent service from very helpful staff (although some are more knowledgeable than others). Fairly well-run and centrally located.

I was very well received entering the hostel. The owner were very helpful and know what they are talking about with the tours, I got a whole slideshow on the computer on where to go and what to see. It was very helpful to get a overview of your options.
Secondly the breakfast with different homemade cakes can also only be a winner, trying to maintain some of the old tradicions with Argentinian breakfast, I loved it.
Recommended for these 2 reasons, otherwise a normal good standard hostel :)

The location of this hostel is fantastic you don't have to walk far to get anywhere. The common area and kitchen are great but the rooms are very dark and have a slight prison cell feel to them although they all seem to come with a heater which we were very grateful for as the concrete floor made the room feel very cold. The rooms and bathrooms are clean however and a decent place to rest your head while in Puerto madryn.

Centrally located, spacey living areas and cosy heated dorms. A laid back atmosphere. The staff were very helpful (also spoke English - a bonus for me) and very easy to book tours through them to peninsula Valdez, punto Tombo, punta Ninfas etc. They also hand out maps for navigational ease, have 2 kitchens and a spare bathroom for those who wish to shower after checkout.
