Staff are friendly and helpful, and have some great tips to see and do in the area. They have a great common room to chill out, close to the beach to go see the whales at sunset. About a 15-20 min walk to the bus station, it's all flat ground so not difficult at all, rooms are clean and warm and spacious They try cook some lovely meal using local ingredients which I think is great but a little expensive.
Arrived around 8am on a freezing cold morning after a long journey from Buenos Aires and from the minute I arrived I was made right at home by Gaston. The rest of the staff couldn´t do any more for you and the facilities were excellent. Good atmosphere as well among the rest of the guest. Great value for money. Stay here if going to Puerto Madryn
Gaston is the consummate host and happy to help you out with arranging any thing from where to eat to which excursions are appropriate for which days. One of the top ten hostels I've stayed in during my 10 months of travel for sure.
Gaston is a legend! As soon as we arrived we had our time in Pto Madryn all planned out and Gaston gave us some excellent advice for our next stop in Patagonia. The newly refurbished bathrooms are amazing, better than some hotels! It in a great location; go to Halloween for empanadas, the best Dulce de leche ice cream just around the corner, yummy yum yum! Estupendo!!!
Lovely place! Like home! Gaston is incredibly helpful and willing to provide whatever you need. Great stay!
More than an hostel, a home! Thanks Gaston!!
This was by far one of the best hostels I have stayed at in Argentina. The hostel is simple in its style but very comfortable and the owner Gaston makes you feel like you are staying in his home. The bed was so comfortable and the new bathrooms fantastic with great shower. Breakfast was delicious and Gaston is always on hand for advice on what to do. We really trusted him and all his recommendations for tours were brilliant! A nice family atmosphere here and I will definitely return one day!
We had a good stay here. Gaston was very helpful and friendly, and we felt very welcome. Our room was comfortable. The promised dinners every night didn't exist and due to low season it was very quiet. Aesthically one of the most dated hostels I've ever seen. Pinkest bathroom ever! Don't sign up for the yacht tour the hostel recommends. It was very poor and terrible value for money.
We had a really nice stay here! The staff is super friendly and will help you with everything. The atmosphere between the guests was also really good, we had great evenings with good food. The ice cream around the corner is really good!
Very friendly/welcoming hostel. Gaston has a wealth of local info that he's willing to share :) Dorms were nice with sturdy bunk beds, awesome matresses and thick duvets. Nightly asado or prawns was tasty and reasonably priced, The improvement works he's about to tart to kithen and bathooms will make this lovely place even better.
Nice, clean hostel. Excellent staff, really willing to help! Definitely stay here again
Best hostel so far. Gaston is an excellent host with local and national knowledge, he is always willing to help guests with their experience of Puerto Madryn and also to book onward journeys and accomodation. Can´t thank him enough. This hostel was superb, clean, comfortable, great breakfast and facilities. Cooking and eating/socialising area is across the yard away from the sleeping areas so you can get a good nights sleep.
This place is great. If you have a functioning brain, stay here.
Garston is a great host. Organised all of our tours without any problems. Would recommend.
It looks very clean, the mattress is very comfortable, but I got few bites by bed bugs :( The owner is very nice n friendly. Breakfast is decent. The bathrooms are VERY CLEAN, shower is excellent!
This is the best hostel i have stayed in in the 9 months that i have been in south america Gaston is great a real nice genuine guy who s more than happy to help with any thing you need or what to know. Great location just a block from the beach and minute walk from supermarkets, restaurants and any thing else you may what or need during your time here. Sorry but i honestly cant think of a bad thing about the hostel oh and the asado is good as well so if your in puerto madryn stay here!!!!!!!!!
Best staff I've ever witnessed at a hostel! Gaston has amazing knowledge of the area and will help you with anything. His wife was in the hospital giving birth and he still found time to make sure everyone staying at his hostel got the experience he felt they deserved. Thank you Gaston!
Breakfast was pretty basic, though I guess standard in Argentina (bread rolls, tea, coffee, biscuits). The host was very welcoming and happy to help organise tours etc and give other information about the area. The rooms were clean and the showers were good.

This is the place to stay! One of the best hostels we have stayed in in whole south America. There is everything you need. Not a fancy hostel but the staff will go the extra mile to help you. The host knows about weather - a big help when planning trips to see wildlife. Big lockers where even big bags fits easely. Nice places to hang out both outside and inside. Fine kitchen and the host made bbq one night wich was great! Only two minutes walk from the beach. Indeed recommendable!
