Excellent position, clean room and bathroom, very good breakfast with tea coffee Juice bread dulce de leche and jam, and a particular mention (and Thank you!) to the hosts of the hostel, Gladys and Matias, that helped us and organized for us a kayak tour and excursion in peninsula valdes! You will really feel Like you are home!

Great hosts, great breakfasts and great position. El Retorno is the best value for money in Puerto Madryn. Not only did the couple that runs this place help organise all of our tours, but they were up at the crack of dawn preparing fresh bread with jam and dulce de leche, as well as coffee and juice. Only two blocks...

Rooms are clean, breakfast is simple but really good and the staff is the most friendly we've met in a while on our trip. The lady in charge works really hard and will help you book any tour in the area. She even gave us an upgrade on our room with no extra charge!

We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this hostel. Our room was small but very comfortable, warm and clean. We had a 4 beds room for the two of us which was great. Shared toilets are ok. Good money/value ratio overall. The staff has been very nice with us.

This hostel was perfect for what we were looking for in Puerto Madryn. It was quiet and relaxed (we came to see the animals not party here) and we had four nights of very good sleep! We were in one of the very small double rooms but it was clean and perfect for our needs and for a very reasonable...

Airy and comfortable rooms. lots of hot water in the showers and big lockers for your bags. Gladys was helpful in finding trips but not trying to push them. A well equipped kitchen if you wanted to cook. and Gladys let me stay and cook and in in the hostel all day while I waited for my late night bus....
