We stayed in this Hostel for two nights. It is a rather good ratio bettween money and quality. Breakfast is simple but filling. The rooms are clean. There is only one shower for the ladies but I never had to queue because we were not in high season. The landlords are really nice and can provide you with very good advise about your trip to puerto piramides. We had a really good time in this place.

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 from the costanera (esplanade) where you can find dive tours and on a warm sunny day, the various bars and seating along the beach. On top of all that we also got a free upgrade. Thanks guys!

We stayed here for one night after a nightmare bus ride. The owner, Gladys was so lovely and helpful, she got us booked onto a tour for the next morning and set us up with a map and all the things we needed. The hostel itself is clean and tidy with a couple of quiet and cosy common areas to relax in and only a few blocks away from the town centre and the esplanade. We really liked our stay here and would definitely recommended it!
