Reviewed 14 December 2015

I had a room on the first floor with a view on the patio. It was very good value for money with Wifi in the room and a private bathroom. It's just a 1 minute walk to the bus station, a 2 minute walk to the supermarket and a 10 minute walk to the boulevard area with all the shops and restaurants. The kitchen is clean. But the 2 attractions of this place are:
1) the owner. He is very friendly, nearly always there and knows Puerto Madryn very well!
2) the breakfast! Homemade bread and lots of things to put an the bread, yoghurt etc! I liked the breakfast more than ik most bigger and expensive hotels.

Although it is a hostel, I didn't feel old (49 years) as the guests were between 25 and 65 years old. The atmosphere in the hostel is very relaxed and friendly.
This is one of the best places I have ever stayed during all my travels! OK, it's in the middle of town, so it can't beat a hostel which has a good view and is situated an a cliff ;-)

Room Tip: Take a room instead of a dorm. I think the best room is the one in the separate building with a view...

Cheap but decent place to stay. Rooms are clean, common kitchen, breakfast incl, wifi, information where to go, where is the best to see sea lions and whales, bus terminal 5 min far. Vincent, the manager is helpful and humble person.
I enjoyed to stay there.

Stayed here for three nights in July 2014 and had a great time. Vincent is a charming owner who was very helpful and put us in contact with other guests going on nearby tours. (Do a day trip to Puerto Pirámides in whale season to see lots of southern right whales. Also try the best hot chocolate in South America in a little café there- it's red, close to beach and offers seafood.)

Bedroom was v comfortable. Heater in room. Showers had lots of pressure and plenty of hot water. Good wifi, kitchen available for cooking and common areas are warm and comfortable. Located across the road from bus station- very useful. Breakfast included. Short walk to beautiful beachfront. Very safe town. Would definitely recommend this hostel to couples, groups and solo travellers.

I arrived with no real expectations but found a gem. So convenient for the bus station which is great when you have heavy bags. A really comfortable bed with thick covers. A delicious breakfast served in the family kitchen. And a host who did his best to help with whatever he could. This hostel is a rare cosy find - stay there! !
