Excellent hostel, very friendly with free breakfast. Breakfast is cakes which they will bring over to you at the table and refill if requested. The purpose of our trip was to see the right whales which we booked from the hostel. The whales can also be seen from the pier for free. The trip itself was well worth it and... More

We spent here one night. The staff is very friendly and helpful! Breakfast is delicious. There is a nice outside common area. One of the best dorm beds we had. Common room is a bit divided with some thin walls so this gives you some privacy. Clean bathrooms.

La Tosca was easy to find from the bus station and is a great little place to stay in PM. The breakfast was traditional and all homemade by the staff and the common area was really cozy. Staff were great, really friendly and helped us with anything we needed, which was useful as our Spanish is fairly rudimentary! We shared... More

Good value for the money. The hostel is located good in Puerto Madryn. Very friendly staff that made our stay so much better. One of the best hostels we visited during our trip around Patagonia. Recommended.

We arrived really early after an overnight coach journey, but were still able to head to our room straight away. The staff on the front desk talked us through tour options thoroughly and offered tea, coffee and homemade cake (basically their daily breakfast offering) while we discussed what to do for the following 2 or 3 days. Although there was... More

The social area, with a lot of natural light, has a common room, integrating a living room, a dining room and a full equipped kitchen. This is the place where you can have all the information, daily updated, to plan your journey in Madryn. It is also the ideal place to meet people from every corner of the planet and share travel experiences and promote new good moments. The double rooms are very small and simple. Basically designed for sleeping, with exceptional “La Cardeuse” mattresses, excellent unlimited hot showers, and an exhaustive cleaning every day. It is worth clarifying, that these rooms counts with privacy, but share the bathroom with another room across, showing an innovative concept in semi-private. We can offer two separate services within those facilities, private or double ones. The “double bed", which has, obviously, a double bed; or the "bunk beds", which consists of two single beds, one over the other, always in an intimate atmosphere. The Shared bedrooms consist of a big common room, with an internal bathroom, essential for Patagonian nights. The individual lockers offer a safe place to leave your things while you are enjoying your trip. The beds count with those exceptional “La Cardeuse” mattresses too. In every room, individual heaters allows you to manage the room temperature as you like.The service includes breakfast (coffee or tee, with milk, and homemade cakes), access to the internet, Wi-Fi access code.
