My first impression of this hostel was ok, good location a block from the beach, although I ignored the smell of mold and moth balls that occupied the entire place. We got screwed around a lot by the manager who told us we could stay another night if we change rooms after the first night. The next day After changing rooms and our way out the door for a full day tour he informed us that no we could not stay an extra night and that we must pack and move our stuff out of the room before we left for the tour. He did not seem to remember saying "yes we could stay another night" the day before.
Everyone seems to love him and state how amaZing he is so I guess he just chose not to like us and treated us like crap.
On top of all that the Internet worked maybe 30% of the time if you were lucky.
The only good thing about this hostel was the bar in the backyard run by a lovely English girl.

"Hello,
Do you have space for 3 people in dorms for 2 nights beginning tomorrow 11/11? Thank you,
S...

This is the mail you've sent for booking and we gave you space as we do got cause is high season. I've got to change you from dorm and dind't charge you more as was more expensive the second day, all considering you have to move from one room to the other. But the 3er day got all booked and ask you 20' before you leave to your tour if you have everything packed so I can get the things downstairs for you during the day before others come home, cause you have to check out that day.

I think is easy to find a guilty one for your missbooking, but suggest you next time to take a look inside before you write something, cause if everyone is super happy with us as you say, may be is your feeling and nothing something coming form us, and I hear from the other travellers that you already had problems with last Hostel Owner before arrival, and may be you've been sensible about being kicked out before arrival.
Even though you found a place to stay, left your stuff at home and untill last minute you've been in P. Madryn as you forgot a towel that we found and came back for it next day.

Wish you a good trip

Located one block back from the beach it's ideally situated to enjoy the better parts of the town, because there is not much to do apart from the wild life tours. Gaston is a great host, nothing is to much trouble and he cooks a great BBQ every couple nights or so. The hostel is very comfortable and has agood friendly atmospher about it. Gaston will book any of the tours for you which make it easy. If only they would take credit cards in Argentina it would make thing a lot easier.

It was great to stay for four nights in Hi Patagonia Hostel. It`s a small, familiar hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. They offer very good and cheap barbecues for their guests and rent bikes very cheap too. The hostel is only 50 metres from the sea distanced.

A big thanks to Gaston and all the family at Hi Patagonia for their kindness. Our stay was really good and we really enjoyed the asado! We also keep great memories of our excursion on Peninsula Valdes where we had the chance to see some Orcas hunting a whale, just amazing!

Stayed here for 2 nights in June. It's a low-season in Puerto Madryn and besides of us there was only 1 guest more in the hostel.
We made reservation by email (sent an email to the hostel).
We booked rooms with shared bathroom. The hostel has 3 bathrooms and they all were clean.
Rooms were nice and warm. Breakfast was simple: cereals, bread, butter, jam, "dulce de leche" (local sweet from milk) and coffee/tea.
We were allowed to use common kitchen and barbecue area. There are share computers in barbecue area. WiFi works good everywhere in the hostel.
Gaston (the owner) is a friendly man (helped us with exhange when all banks were closed due to national holiday and provided information about car rental and activities in Peninsula Valdes). His English is excellent.
Unfortunatelly we weren't allowed to make check-out a little bit later than 10 am. The owned told us that "he is really strict on this topic" (we were surprised because there weren't other guests, but we were allowed to store luggage and sit in barbecue area.
I can recommend this hostel because of good balance between price and comfort.
