So, was there no new material at all?

If so, I'm definitely skipping it. Recap episodes are something that can never be done right. Doubly so in a supposedly long running series that's only been going on for 12 episodes and is in the middle of an arc rather than at the end of it. No reason for one whatsoever.

yep,only new material is maybe 5 secs at beginning of episode and that is probably filler.
Check beginning of episode skip rest and check the end

It makes for a very cheap episode.

I'm assuming the recap is as a person said, to make up for the fact that they'll have to take a break some time... and I'm assuming the break is this next week. Most anime seem to take a break the week of new year's so I think HunterxHunter may be doing the same.

Yeah, I assumed it was going to be a recap and there it was. Glad I didn't bother watching since it would have been a waste of time.

Keiko Han has lines in this episode again. So hard for me to not just imagine the character saying, "Reinharto" every time she's getting emotional about Gon's quest to be a Hunter. Of all the voice actresses to ever do almost exclusively motherly characters I think she's done it the best in her career. Just something so distinct and reassuring about her voice and tone.

Does anyone know if Toto will continue doing his comparisons between manga, anime anime 1999 and 2011?

Well, I agree with Toto about the new anime. To me, it's better than the older.
I like the dark atmosphere of the old anime, like everyone. But I feel that the writers who made the filler in 1999's anime were less intelligent, or made ​​no effort, because their scripts were illogical, and spoiled the original plot of the manga (as Gon's mother being the sister of Mito).

Anyway, as Toto isn't doing it, I made my own comparison of episode 11. Please keep in mind that I am not an English speaker so the pictures are in spanish and maybe there is something badly written...

Spoiler for comparison of episode 11:

The next stage started!
This one won't be easy either.
Gon sure got a seriously tough task.
Can't wait for next episode, this is really interesting.

Another interesting test for the fourth stage. Gon really has a tough target. Though even if you don't know who your target is you can still pas by getting 3 other id cards, since you only have to get 6 points. Gon better be careful though. He may have learned the trick to hunting, but he has to realize that it can happen to him as well. I was surprised the guy didn't take Gon's id cad when he was sleeping.

This portion of the test had me hooked to HxH when I watched the older version. It was one of the most powerful moments I've experienced from watching anime. I'll be paying close attention to how the new version chooses to animate what's coming next in the next few episodes.

So far so good, in my view.

Am watching old version right now and sometimes checking new one just to see how far has it gotten and... aren't they missing a whole test here? The last one was the tower and now it is hunting... what about the huge wave? Or was that a filler in older series?

That was filler, yeah. Albeit a pretty good and well implemented one, of course.

Indeed but the story made it clear that there was never really anyway for Gon to beat Hisoka and his fight with the old man only further increased the Mary Sueness by having the old man recognise that Gon had the right attitude (something that the story keeps repeating ad nauseum)
