We have nothing but praise for this hostel. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable with good personal lockers; the owners were polite and helpful, and organised all our tours during our stay and got us a discount on one; the kitchen is really well-equipped and the best we've used whilst travelling so that it felt like cooking at home;...

Originally planned to stay for 2 nights but I ended up staying for 3 nights because I enjoyed it so much! Stayed at dormitory and the room was clean and cozy. Gabriel was so nice and the kids were just super adorable! It's got great location, near the bus terminal and supermarkets, and it's super close to the beach so... More

Had a great stay at Chepatagonia. The kitchen was very well equipped and kept very clean. Breakfast was delicious! The 4 bed dorm was lovely - it had 4 lockers with keys, lots of room to store your bags, and the sheets were like new. The couple that run the hostel were helpful and accommodating. I would certainly recommend this... More

Stayed there for 3 nights, place is spotless, love the kitchen where I spotted whales during breakfast! Location is excellent with restaurants and grocery stores at the doorstep. Gabi and Malu are both warm and helpful, I booked some tours with them, great ones and price is the most reasonable in town.

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
