Great place to stay for a few days to relax in Puerto Madryn or explore Peninsula Valdes, Punta Tombo or other locations nearby. Eduardo provided us with a great overview of the area and things to do, as well everybody was very helpful in planning and organizing. There is always someone from the team onsite and available. The garden and... More

My boyfriend and I came here and stayed in a 6 bed dorm room. The beds were really comfy and shower was decent and with constant hot water. The only annoying thing was the caged lockers which were very noisy. The breakfasts consisted of cake unless you asked for fruit, cereal and yogurt, which was a much better option. The... More

We had a great time at this hostel where we stayed 5 nights. We made many friends. The service of the personnel is an example for the way a hostel has to be managed. Breakfast and the beds are not that of a resort, but this is largely compensated by the hospitality. We stayed in a room with private bathroom.

Me and a friend recently stayed here for three nights in the dorm room. The hostel itself was excellent, good location, comfortable, good kitchen (they have 2 well equipped kitchens), good showers. The breakfast consists of cake and coffee/tea/mate. It is a cosy affair and (unusually for a hostel) features staff waiting on for the customers, serving the breakfast up.... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in the dormitory. The hostel has a very cool and friendly vibe, and the setup really encourages interaction between the guests. I would definitely recommend it for single travelers, as you will find activity partners very easily. The staff is great, and they cook a really nice collection of cakes for breakfast every morning.... More

We stayed at the La Tosca for three nights. We only booked one night in advance, so we had to change rooms. The bunk beds are quite small - between two walls, for large people not so good. There are two kitchens to prepare lunch / dinner, they are well used. In one kitchen a grill / barbecue is available... More

We stayed in Puerto Madryn for eight days and La Tosca was great for it. We booked all our tours directly via the hostel. That was uncomplicated, easy and great value. All the tours we did were amazing! The staff was super helpful and friendly and the owner is super nice! The location is also very good. Breakfast can get... More

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. (room 0) The breakfast is simple, you get some homemade... More
