I don't even know where to start. The owners have clearly given up. How there are around 30 hostels lower ranks in Mendoza is impossible.

Dirty would be an understatement - the sheets and bedding looked like they hadn't been changed in 30 years. 2 people in our room of 4 got bed bugs.

'Breakfast' was some crappy croissants, with barely enough utensils to eat them. One carton of milk for about 12 people to have cereal from.

Shower was a dribble of hot water.

Worth checking out to see how bad it is...

This place doesn't even deserve 1 star. Unless you enjoy a bed bug infested dive, avoid this place at all costs. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night (May 6, 2016) with another couple. We stayed in a four person dorm. The entire hostel was dirty - but the sheets and pillowcases had clearly not been washed, had stains, and smelled. To top it off, myself and my friend ended up with bites everywhere from the bed bugs. The 'pool' in the backyard was a disgusting, the kitchen resembled a dungeon, and breakfast consisted of a couple burnt croissants, dry cereal as they ran out of milk, and a dribble of coffee in a dirty mug.

By far the worst hostel I have seen so far! Not just is the place filthy, poorly kept and badly run down, it is also horribly infested with bed bugs. I had at least 300 bed bug bites! worse, I my luggage has been infected, and I am now going through pains of dealing with these monsters. I have fed back this to the Life Hostel, but did not receive a response.

This place is best served by avoiding!!!
