I was accused twice by the owner of not having paid my bill. The staff was so disorganized that they can’t even keep track of who paid. Luckily I asked for a receipt after I paid. But even with the receipt, the owner was still confused and at one point told me I’d need to leave immediately. I remained calm and had to talk her through her confusion. My friend wasn’t so lucky. She had no receipt, and had to pay twice for one night.
The rooms are basic and a bit rundown. The carpeting in the room is ratty, stained, and soiled. The toilet seat was broken. Every day the cleaning crew left a mop in my shower. The curtains are far to thin, allowing lots of light and peering eyes into your room.
Breakfast is included, but was the worst breakfast ever. I was served stale bread with some butter and marmalade. Prisoners are fed better. The dining area was somewhat dirty. The internet connection was unreliable and kept cutting out. The rooms are laid out in all together in a line, like a motel. People pass by your room to get to their room, and things can get quite noisy, because people are inconsiderate. I had one woman loitering outside my room smoking a cigarette and gabbing on her cell phone.
Lodging is in short supply in Puerto Madryn in high season. If you can avoid staying in the viajeros, you should do that.
