Although there's nothing 'great' to say about this hostel, it's reasonably well located and a good place to stay while touring Peninsula Valdes. The hostel staff were helpful with booking a tour for us, but you could see that being nice didn't come naturally to the owner as she managed to put a negative spin on most things, until we were about to leave, where she insisted we write a review online. Not sure if it was because it was very busy, or just the norm, but we felt fairly uncomfortable as soon as we arrived and were told we couldn't do anything in town because it was a long weekend. As we soon found out, nothing was a problem at all and the long weekend had no impact on our stay whatsoever.
If I was to return to Puerto Madryn, I'd try a different hostel.
