Gaston the host was amazing and extremely helpful! Staying there was great. Breakfast involved the standard bread, spreads, cookies, tea and coffee. Just a quick walk to the beach which was great and a 5-10 minute walk from the city center. Good to stay in!
Great breakfast, big room lockers, nice tours, good advices for traveling - Gaston and his team do a very great job! I definitely recommend this hostel!
Great Hostel. And even better host. Gaston is the best host i have ahad so far in South America, he does everything he can to help you and with booking your tours. Breakfast is good. Location is perfect right next to the beach to see the Whales doing there thing! Thanks alot Gaston!
Excellent hostel. Gaston is fantantic. His knowledge is outstanding and is always willing to help. If he doesn't know the answer he will find out for you too. Couldn't have asked for any better. His advised and help with organising tours was great too. A place that just works and makes you relax into the Argentine way.
Gaston was a very helpful host! Place is cozy and clean. Room for improvement: room door locks are quite difficult to lock/unlock. Might be better to change it to something easier to open/close and less noise.👍🏼
Homely hostel with excellent, knowledgeable staff.

Gaston is what makes this hostel, he is such a charming and welcoming host you immediately feel right at home. Really helpful at organising tours or answering any questions you have. The hostel itself is a great location just around the corner from the beach. The dorms had big lockers so you could lock up your big backpack, and there were plenty of plugs for charging your devices. Bathrooms were also great, like something from a hotel rather than a hostel! Great place!
Gaston was the most warm and welcoming host, he took so much time to help us plan our trip and make the most of our experience. He is also a lot of fun and just an all round great character to have a chat with! We stayed in the double room which had everything we could need, there was plenty of storage to keep our backpacks out the way, cable TV and a generous bathroom. The hostel is located a stones through from the beach and importantly a bakery with great biscuits! We would absolutely recom

The star of the show here is the owner, Gaston. He is a legend. Always willing to help and offer advice. We really wanted to visit Punto Tumbo but as it was the holidays we were not sure if it was open. Gaston tried on numerous occasions to check for us and when there was no guarantee of it being open, instead of us being disappointed, he arranged a separate trip for us which was amazing. A couple of downsides, the breakfast is not so great and the kitchen could benefit from new equipment.
The staff is so kind and helpful. Really try to make you enjoy your stay and make you feel like a guest not a customer. Very close to the beach great location. And awesome bathrooms and the most comfortable blankets on bed. The staff also arranged a tour for us to swim with sea lions. We had to leave early in the morning and the staff was kind enough to prepare breakfast for us at 6am even though normally breakfast time was 630. So cool! Very impressed by the customer service here!
Nice owner, very sympathetic and funny guy. The hostel is a good place to stay. We even booked two more nights. The kitchen is located apart in the garden from the building which is good to let people rest. The bathrooms are very big and look like to the ones of a good hotel. Definitely a good place to stay.
We had an amazing time in Puerto Madryn. In this hostel, you will feel at home. Gaston has excellent advices about Puerto Madryn and all excursions around. Many thanks to Gaston and Pablo.
Awesome staff, so friendly, knowledgable & helpful. Bit of a walk but good location by the beach, grocery stores & ice cream! Clean rooms/bathrooms, lockers in rooms etc. big common area, smelt a bit funny but think it was the tree outside. Nice outside space. Chilled vibe, good internet connection, nice/simple breakfast.
Really clean and a very comfortable single bed in a 4 bed dorm (The joy of not being in a bunkbed!). Facilities were all there. Fantastic shower. Good wifi. Staff very helpful. Allowed to use all the facilities after checkout which was great while waiting for an evening bus. Not a party hostel and nice and quiet when I was there. Only recommendation would be to do up/redesign the common room which lacks comfort and atmosphere.
perfect stay in a perfect hostel. Not a party hostel , but really nice stuff. It is more staying at a familiy home.
We really enjoyed our two nights at Hi Patagonia. Gaston was so friendly and helpful. The 4-bed-dorm was really o.k. and cleanliness was super! Thank's Gaston for the nice stay! Best regards from Otti and Peter, Germany
gaston, the owner, is lovely and very helpful. new years eve there was nice, argentinian asado dinner. would definitely recommend the hostel!
Nice, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, you can book tours from the Hostel. Puerto Madryn is worth a trip
Staff was the real problem here. Feels like you couldn't relax, they were always looking over your shoulder especially in the kitchen. Not very sincere in their remarks. This weird stipulation that one kitchen was not usable only for staff, even though no staff lived there. Would definitely recommend somewhere else! Stay away is my advice!!
The location is good, not extremely central, but not more than 10 min.walk from the main road. The cleanliness is very high standard and the owner will plan for you all the excursions you like.He might not offer you the cheapest options, however it's good if you want to save yourself the hassle of going around agencies,comparing prices, etc... The atmosphere is nice and chilled. Hi Patagonia is not a party Hostel, but a nice family-like place where you can rest and enjoy the beauties of the area
