Had two great nights at La Tosca! Mostly because of the great people I met here. I am traveling alone and there were alot of nice groups and single travelers which I joined. Beds were fine with own electricity and light. Shower was warm and good.


Really really great hostel that we only stayed one night. Wanted to stay longer but it was fully booked and no wonder why :)


Was a nice hostel just a few blocks from the bus stop and the beach. it has 2 kitchens and a garden, but no chairs outside to sit. the girl on the reception is really busy in the morning, cause she is alone and has to organize the breakfast, check in and outs and answering questions of the tourists. one of the staff was not very helpful, cause he tried to talk us into their tours, not being helpful with answering questions, cause we wanted to do our own tour with a rental car.


The staff make this hostelink great welcome and advise! Comfortable beds and decent location.


Staff were super helpful (although there was always a long line to ask questions/ get advice/ book tours, so perhaps two staff should be working at one time so there's less waiting) and never seemed rushed to do things for you, even when there was a line behind you, which was appreciated (once it was your turn to be helped). Room was clean, beds weren't super comfortable, but worked. No A/C (would have been hot if the weather hadn't cooled down when we arrived). Free breakfast was nice!


La Tosca is a really sweet hostel , you meet a lot of travels from around the world, very nicely located ! The staff are incredibly helpful... The overall vibe is perfect for a solo traveler .. Also , they help with all the trips booking and all.. Dorms are fine, clean and simple! I had a great time !

Yummy cakes, nice helpful staff, good location, wifi was great and quiet and cosy atmosphere. If it wasn't so expensive we would have loved to stay longer. Highly recommend!


Great cosy hostel well located a few blocks from main beach in Puerto Madryn! Staff were very friendly and helpful in booking any torus or giving advice! Rooms were clean and plenty of hot water for showers/washing clothes! Be prepared for a lot of cake for breakfast!


This was an amazing hostel! It was the only hostel in our 2 week adventure in Argentina but I think we definitely made a great choice in going that route. Upon arriving fairly late at night, the night shift worker explained all the excursions in detail, and gave her recommendations as far as what to do and when. This great service continued with all the other staff as well later in the trip. Each of the excursions we did were very small groups with a great guide. Would definitely recommend!


Basic hostel with comfortable beds and OK breakfast. Clean, but the shower curtain had some mildew on it. Well located, close to both the bus station and the beach. The staff helps you book tours and we did the whole Peninsula Valdes tour. In hindsight we would definitely recommend you to rent a car (maybe with other hostel guests) and drive there yourself to save time and money, or just to take a bus for 75 ps to Puerto Piramides and get on the whale watching boat from there.


Had a wonderful stay at La Tosca. Eduardo was supernal helpful in booking our tours and helping us figure out what to do. Had a wonderful experience with all the staff here! Breakfast is great and the staff serves you at the table which was different from my other hostel experiences. Loved all of the hammocks outside. Highly recommend.


Amazing breakfasts - home made cakes and coffee. Staff really helpful and friendly. Showers were good also. Really helpful with booking trips. But not much atmosphere at night


The hostel was an excellent place to stay in Puerto Madryn: good location, very hot water in the shower, good heating, super nice staff. The tours the staff recommended were awesome (do the whale boat trip and Punta Ninfas!!!) and they were helpful with all other questions we had as well - also before our arrival in Puerto Madryn by mail! Three nights was the perfect length for us to explore the peninsula and surroundings. I highly recommend La Tosca!
