Really friendly and helpful staff who always remember your name. The whole hostel is very clean and has a cozy atmosphere with great music. In comparison with other hostels in Argentina the breakfast was really nice: A small selection of different cakes and a cup of tea or coffee. Definitely recommendable!

Great place with an amazing supermarket and awesome restaurants in the vicinity. The supermarket saved our lives on many occasions because of the cooked food at its deli section. Great place to pack a picnic or to buy some fresh produce to cook in the well stocked kitchen at La Tosca

It is also a five minute walk from the bus station and another ten minutes (very slow) walk to the pier where you can watch the Southern Right Whales frolick in the pier.

The hostel itself is very clean and comes with a very chillout common area. Eduardo was a wealth of information on what we can do in Puerto Madryn and was very clear in advising us on how to get to Ushuaia (our next stop) from Puerto Madryn

Great location, welcoming, friendly and informative staff, nice courtyard garden and a relaxed, 'just like home' feel. We had a hire car for touring Peninsula Valdes, and they had secured parking available. We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. Lovely home made cakes for breakfast. Enough said, just book it!

We had only planned on staying at La Tosca for a couple of nights but due to sickness (dodgy food in Buenos Aires!), the staff were extremely helpful and even moved things around so we could have the same room for an additional 3 nights.

We were greeted with a warm welcome and the staff spent about half an hour telling us about the area (complete with a slide show!)

I was very impressed with the communal areas, the hammocks and homemade cakes for breakfast were some of the highlights! The rooms were a little small but were very cosy and the bathroom and communal areas were kept very clean. There are two kitchens, I think the kitchen inside the main hostel is better equipt. I would not hesitate in recommending this place to fellow travelers. It was the perfect cure for my sickness and the best place to relax, I'd definitely return!

I will admit I have only been here 1 hour, but I showed up at 6:30am and within 15 minutes was provided with a warm coffee and help cracking a lock on my bag. Service here is top notch, very friendly staff and extremely comfortable environment. Recommended!

La Tosca is a great hostel located within close proximity to restaurants, a supermarket, the bus terminal and the pier. Staff are super friendly and helpful. The hostel is clean, has 2 kitchens and guests are permitted to leave bags at the hostel after checking out, plus utilise all facilities including kitchens, common room, showers and toilets until finally leaving. An excellent place to stay.
