A travel blog entry by jam10


We arrived early morning after our 10 hour bus journey during the night.

    Fantastic very high quality hostel. Lots of space and great communal facilities. Our private double room is hotel standard and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The whales are mesmirising, I highly recommend a visit to Puerto Madryn and you should definitely stay here !
