Hostelz.com's Review
Anclas del Sur Hostel is located in Puerto Madryn, just five walking minutes from the center of the town. The neighborhood seems calm and safe during the entire day. This hostel has a nice TV room where the guests usually hang out. The hostel has two floors and there is free Wi-Fi in almost the entire building. There is a small courtyard in the back, perfect for smokers or to catch a bit of sun. Usually you will get a small breakfast included in your stay, and you'll get bread, dulce de leche and butter, and coffee and tea.

The Location

The hostel is located a few blocks from the city center, but still in a walking distance -- ten to fifteen minutes. If you have the address, it will be easy to find as Puerto Madryn is well organized in a grid of streets. When you reach the street, shouldn’t be hard to spot the hostel, as it has a huge sign with "Hostel" written on it. Puerto Madryn is not very big but you have everything you need near Anclas del Sur Hostel -- grocery stores, supermarkets, and fast food and local restaurants, among others. If you arrive by car, it will be hard to find a parking spot, but the parking is free.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms have enough space for the number of people, although we can’t say that the rooms are always clean and that they are well kept. The bunks are a bit old, but you will be ok. Also important, you will have Wi-Fi in the dorms. The bathrooms are nice, but don’t seem to be always enough for the amount of guests in the hostel. In the showers, you will find enough space to put your clothes and your things.

Common Spaces

The hostel’s common spaces are spacious and a lot nicer than the rooms. There is a TV room with sofas, and behind it, the eating room. These areas are big enough for all the guests and you can find Wi-Fi everywhere. The communal kitchen could be a bit bigger, but it usually doesn’t get too crowded. It has all the utensils you usually need and seems well kept. Another very good part of the hostel is the courtyard -- it's perfect for a cigarette, to catch some sun, or just to get to know other guests.

Summary

This is a nice hostel, and except for the dorms, the place looks well kept. It is a cheap option when you compare it with the hostels near the city center, in the front line. The hostel can arrange some tours to see the whales, orcas, and penguins, but we strongly suggest shopping around in other hostels and travel agencies at the end of each day -- that is when the prices come down if you book it for the next day.
