Nice location in almost center of the beach, 20-30 minutes walk from the bus station. Very good personal, helped us very much and answered a lot of questions about Puerto Madryn. We stayed in the matrimonial with shared bathroom, everything was clean. If prices would be little bit lower - it's will be 5 out of 5. In overall very... More

We stayed 7 nights at this hostel. It was a really nice, calm family run hostel. The owner helped us with booking some nice tours and was very helpful. He even baked good pizzas one night for everyone who wanted to participate. Besides of the really nice people that own this place it had three other big pro's. It was... More

Gaby and Maru are very friendly and always provide you with all the information you need, without beeing pushy. They organise you all the trips around the area. Everything is well organised. The hostel is located perfectly in the center right next to the beach. Rooms are basic but always clean. Breakfast was definetely one of the better ones during... More

I only stayed 1 night in Chepatagonia Hostel because I was in Puerto Madryn / Peninsula Valdes on a short visit (1 night in Puerto Madryn, 2 nights in Peninsula Valdes). Had a very nice experience with Maru & Gabriel, the owners of the hostel - I was very lucky to get in on a day when they were hosting... More

Like at home or in your family. Hostel with a human size, kitchen and rooms really clean. View on the sea from the kitchen. Everything you wish to find in a haostel is there. Also close to all the facilities, only 15 minutes walk from the bus station.

After an exchange of emails I made a reservation to stay in this hostel a month before my date of arrival and Maru from the hostel confirmed it. I was offered tranfers from the airport or tours, but at that time I didn’t want to book anything yet as I was shopping around for good deals as prices of tours... More

We came without a big clue to Madryn. Arriving at Chepatagonia (looks like reservations are mandatory) and talking to the very friendly owners help us tremendously to get an orientation with all the great sights and wildlife the area offers. Quite a few families are here, it looks like that this hostel fits pretty good for them (as I am... More

It's a great hostel, fantastic location just steps from the beach (yes you can see whales from some of the windows!), the kitchen is great and there is a PC you can use. It's also run by some really nice people - so friendly and knowledgeable. The only real flaws are - 1) the rooms on the road side are... More

Hi! Thanks for your review but for your information we have a total of 6 bathrooms so the Hostel has 1 bathroom every 4 people. In your case, if the bathroom next to your room was busy, you could have resorted to the reception where we could be a reported other bathrooms available ... Hola! Gracias por tu opinión pero...
