“Good clean hostel central location with great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2008

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights – 11 months in to our round the world travels and trying to keep costs down. It is a great little hostel. The room was comfortable and warm, with cable TV and cabinets which you can lock your things inside if you have a padlock with you. Really good for a hostel as most of the hotels we stayed in didn’t even have a safe so having large lockable cabinets was an excellent security feature. The only downside was that we had to share a bathroom with 2 other rooms but to be honest it worked out fine. The hostel is very secure as the front doors are locked at all times and only accessed by ringing the bell for the staff to let you in. The room rates were reasonable compared to other hostel prices we looked at and included a decent breakfast with more than just croissants and ham and cheese – they also had cereals and fresh milk and fresh croissants. There is a communal area for meeting people, with DVD and cable TV and an internet lounge. Also good Wi-Fi access from your own room if travelling with a laptop. The room was clean and the shared bathroom was very clean and in good working order, and cleaned every day. Pillows and bedding were clean and comfortable. The staff here are excellent and really go out of their way to help you. They have a washing machine on the premises but no drier but you can take your clothes to a local laundry and get it all done service wash and returned same day for a good price. There is a kitchen available to use at the hostel. As hostels go, this is a good place to stay and well located. They have shared dorms rooms, private double rooms and some rooms have private bathrooms if you book in advance.

This is a very good hostel for travellers. The owner is a lovely lady who speaks very good english. She helped us to sort out trips to the penguin colony and to see the whales. What was most impressive was that she didnt push the full day trips, she appreciated that we were travelling on a budget and helped us to combine using public transport and a boat trip to save some money.

The hostel was warm and comfortable with a good kitchen and a television. The hostel was very friendly and I would fully recommend it.

This beautiful small hostel is located in the centre of Puerto Madryn city.
Is an excellent place to stay if your idea is to visit the Valdes peninsula. You can arrange there the tours.
The attention was great and I don’t have complains about the conditions of the room.
On weekend could be a little noise because is near to some pubs
