We stayed here for a few nights in a double with shared bathroom and really enjoyed it. The couple who run the place are really friendly and helpful (and patient with our poor Spanish!). The room was really nice and really good value for Puerto Madryn. There's a lounge downstairs and a kitchen upstairs where breakfast is served and you... More

We liked our stay at this hostel and would recommend it: -good equipped kitchen -normal argentinan breakfast,but in a buffet form -clean -computer to use -helpful staff (organized a car for us) Downsides: -the private rooms are right next to the kitchen, so two nights we did not sleep very much due to the fact that people were up until...

I booked there for 7 days including Christmas This place is so much enjoyable as the point you do not want to leave. The hostel is located at the best spot one can imagine. From the balcony in the big kitchen, you can view the beach and and the sea, about 20 meters away. This is excellent place to spend... More

I originally booked 5 days but ended up staying 10 days because I liked the city and this place so much. The hostel is located at the best spot one can imagine. From the balcony in the big kitchen, you can view the beach and and the sea, about 20 meters away. Sometimes, I just put on my swimming trunks,... More

The more south you go in South America, the better the breakfast gets, it seems. The breakfast at Chepatagonia was gerat: Breakfast room is in the big kitchen, that can also be used by guest. There is freshly brewed coffee, hot and cold milk, cereals, toasted bread, jams, butter and .... cake. Every morning a fresh one. We slept in... More

All the previous reviews cover everything. Gabi and the staff run a great show here. Communication beforehand was great, we arranged pick up from the airport and there was someone waiting with our name on. It's actually the main bus transfer company into Puerto Madryn. Once at the hostel it's very clean and tidy, definitely a chilled atmosphere. The breakfast... More

Ive stayed in hundreds of hostels throughout South America, and this one makes it in the top three. Always clean and very spacious, the amenities are superb for the price. What makes the place super special are the staff however. Gabi, Maru and Facundo, thanks for making my stay soo nice.

We stayed here for 3 nights, Gabriel, Maru and Facundo were all so helpful and friendly. They helped us with everything we needed while keeping a lovely clean hostel. And there is porridge for breakfast!!!! A great change from the standard bread... The rooms are comfortable and clean. Bathrooms are nice and the showers are excellent. The kitchen has great...

I chose Chepatagonia because of its location close to the beach, but I'd go back for the friendliness and warm welcome of the staff and owners. I've stayed in many hostels and never been greeted by anyone as nice or helpful as Facu, and the best part of my stay was the asado, which really felt like being invited to... More
