Stayed for three nights. Very nice and quiet place. Good dorms, good breakfast with self baked cake, good hints for tours. Clean, hot showers, nice chilly garden. Central location, only a few blocks from the sea. Eduardo and his staff were super nice. Highly recommendable!

I got mixed feelings about that hostel. The staff is very very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere therefore really good. The hostel also has a nice "inner cordyard" as you can see on all the pictures. That's definetely nice! The breakfast just includes sweet cakes, coffee and yoghurt, you won't find bread here. Beds and bathrooms were not very clean,...

My partner and I stayed in La Tosca for 2nights while in Puerto Madryn. It was exactly what we wanted. The staff were helpful and booked all our excursions. The rooms were the cheapest on offer, cleaned daily and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and the kitchen had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend staying here.

LaTosca is in a great location, not far from the bus terminal. Beds are comfortable with the useful addition of private power points and lamps. Staff are efficient but I had the sense that it was just a business rather than a passion and it didn't have the friendly family feel that many other hostels have. It was very much...

One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The people are incredibly helpful! The rooms are warm and clean and the beds are very comfy. Also the breakfast is homemade and delicious! They helped organise all my excursions and were just brilliant.

This is great value for the money. The staff were awesome, super helpful with arranging tours in the area and providing information. We asked about kayaking and they called and had a list of options as soon as the company opened. We left early in the morning twice and they had breakfast ready to go, which was a very tasty...

Very friendly staff, english speaking. Home made cakes for breakfast. Good location, close to the city center, supermarket in the proximity. Rooms are clean, warm water worked well. Safe place, you have to pass through a locked gate before you come to the house itself. Kitchen with large cooking place.

We came to the area to see the whales in Puerto Pirámides up the coast and used La Tosca as our base. We were given a very nice room on the upper floor with comfortable beds and a shared bathroom. The breakfast is pretty simple but all home cooked - some really nice cakes and an unlimited supply of coffee....

La tosca was such a wonderful experience. Clean, warm, welcoming. It had everything we needed. With only 48 hours in puerto madryn we needed to make the most of our time and thanks to the wonderful helpful staff and their advice we had an amazing experience and saw all of the whales we could ask for.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

A protected area with a nice and sunny central garden, it’s ideal for a comfortable outdoors rest. The barbecue, in addition, proposes tasting the precious argentine meat. The social area, with a lot of natural light, has a common room, integrating a living room, a dining room and a full equipped kitchen. This is the place where you can have all the information, daily updated, to plan your journey in Madryn. It is also the ideal place to meet people from every corner of the planet and share travel experiences and promote new good moments. The double rooms are very small and simple. Basically designed for sleeping, with exceptional “La Cardeuse” mattresses, excellent unlimited hot showers, and an exhaustive cleaning every day. It is worth clarifying, that these rooms counts with privacy, but share the bathroom with another room across, showing an innovative concept in semi-private. We can offer two separate services within those facilities, private or double ones. The “double bed", which has, obviously, a double bed; or the "bunk beds", which consists of two single beds, one over the other, always in an intimate atmosphere. The Shared bedrooms consist of a big common room, with an internal bathroom, essential for Patagonian nights. The individual lockers offer a safe place to leave your things while you are enjoying your trip. The beds count with those exceptional “La Cardeuse” mattresses too. In every room, individual heaters allows you to manage the room temperature as you like.The service includes breakfast (coffee or tee, with milk, and homemade cakes), access to the internet, Wi-Fi access code. Includes also, of course, bedclothes and a hand towel. ... more   less
