We had a very nice stay here. The staff makes you feel at home. They are very attentive and really help you with all the organisational stuff (tours, recommendations, etc.). The little garden is a really nice place to hang out. The variety of guests (backpacker, families, etc.) creates a very good atmosphere. Thank you!


The kitchengear was very old and need to be reniewed. The pc and monitor to be used by the guests were very old and also have to be replaced. You cannot get a print of a personal E-mail needed as traveldocument. You have to go to the busstation to get a print! The price for a double room ensuite was very high. For the same costs you Could have booked a Nice hotel. Breakfast was very minimal with only sweet cakes.

Good clean hostel, close to beach and bus terminal. Helpful and friendly staff. I slept in 8 bed dorm, was a bit concerned but it is relatively private and people were respectfully quiet. Two kitchens well stocked with equipment.


The hostel is really nice and just 10min walk from the ocean(main streets) and 5min walk from the bus station. The staff is helpful and the internet is good maily in the loby but sometimes also in the room.


La Tosca is a good hostel. We stayed there for 4 nights. The staff is friendly and helpfull. They greet you by name. They give you all information you need. The rooms and bathroom are basic but good. We slept next to the kitchen which was some noisy at night. The breakfast was simple, you get some homemade cake and fresh coffee.


The staff is very friendly and happy to help with everything. We booked a twin room and got a 2 bed dorm room which felt like a prison cell....quite awful really. The common room was very small but there is a nice area outside to sit. Fairly central, approx 10 min walk to the beach.


Awesome hostel. Very welcoming. The staff was perfect and gives great advice for excursions. We did the one day excursion they propose and it was perfect and fair for the price.


La Tosca is a decent hostel with a nice staff. The bunks are comfy. Breakfast is kinda weird actually. They serve essentially cake. It's absolutely delicious, but still, kinda weird. The hostel is clean. The rooms all have ensuite bathrooms/showers. You can book all of your activities through the hostel itself as well. Recommend.


Convenient, plesent, quite hostel. Extra ordinary helpful, knowlegable, warm stuff.

Amazing hostel! We arrived late, but wanted to plan a tour for the morning, and Eduardo was right on top of it. Explaining all types of things we could do, and finally hooked us up with an amazing tour guide. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Since we were leaving at 6 o'clock in the morning, breakfast would be a bit difficult, but they prepared breakfast for us anyways. Room and bathroom were very clean! Definitely coming back if ever passing through Puerto Madrin!


Lovely lovely place in a great location! The staff were super friendly, incredibly helpful and always cheery.Great social kitchen and yum breakfast.We did a great tour through them so would highly recommend booking with the hostel.Rooms are very basic but very clean. We (husband


You get what you pay for and then some. It's a hostel, so obviously it's not of the same quality as a 5-star hotel. The staff are better than at any 5-star hotel though; it was incredibly impressive that they all knew my name even though I only stayed a few days there and didn't really interact with them too much.

this hostel was great, the guys who work here know there stuff and are happy to help you out. only complaint would be the breakfast, its just cake and coffee...


Thanks to Eduardo and Rodrigo, who were not only extremely helpful, but made us feel like home! Freshly baked cakes for breakfast, gluten-free options in the morning, loads of useful information about Puerto Madryn and AMAZING music selection! Everybody was super friendly, the place is very clean and the facilities are in good condition. Kitchen is kept clean! Great mood, great value for money!


Great hostel :) Eduardo gave us a really good introduction to all the attractions in the area and we loved the tour to the Peninsula Valdés that we could book through the hostel. Maybe there could be more tables or places to sit in the common area because it's the place to relax but also to eat. Thank you very much!
