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.


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!


A good clean hostel with staff, the breakfast cakes are amazing and the dorms well laid out. A short walk into the main areas around town and close to the bus station. Overall a great hostel!!


Good hostel, spacious, large kitchens, good vibe, well located. Enjoyed my stay, and would definitely recommend it, also for families.


I loved my stay at La Tosca! The staff was very helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the hostel itself is walking distance from the beach, the train station, and many shops and restaurants, which was great! The only thing I would note that I did not gather from other reviews or descriptions of the hostel is that it is a very family-friendly hostel (which is great!) but if you are a young adult traveler, just be aware that there may be little ones in the common areas.

Dear Alexa! We deeply appreciate those who take a few minutes to leave your impressions and comments.You're right that we are a very friendly hostel. That's why during holiday many family groups visit us.We never make distinctions of age, sex, or religion, and we understand that youth is a way of seeing life.We like the idea of those who some day will be young adult travelers...Thanks again and have a safe journey and when the time comes, an excellent back home! Rodrigo, Eduardo, Elsa y Deb
