The hostel is close to a large supermarket but a bit of a walk to the main town area and the bus station. WiFi only worked downstairs. Kitchen facilities ok. Breakfast was very nice. Good selection. They organise a BBQ once or twice a week which we went to. For the price paid (approx €10 per person) there was not...

We stayed here for three days and the place was really chilled with kind staff and friendly people. There was a really good Asado, and free wine every night for two hours. It was tidy and clean, all though the bathrooms on the second floor were maybe too small to fit both toilet and shower in one room. Therefore it...

The location is a little bit further from the centre of town, but still only 15 mins walk to the plaza independencia. The neighbourhood is quiet, no noise at night. The hostel itself has two kitchens, a dining area, living room, outdoor terrace and enough bathrooms to share. We stayed in a double with private bathroom to start with, it...

We stayed here for three nights, it's very basic but had a great location. The staff were nice and the breakfast was average but the wifi worked well and showers were hot. The place is a bit dull and could do with a bit of a lift but it was good for the price. Would stay again.

We had read good reviews of this hostel before booking, and had spent a bit of time in similarly priced hostels in Argentina, so thought we had realistic expectations. First of all, when we arrived (around 6pm), there was no water in any of the showers. We were told it would take about an hour to fix, but it hadn't...

Overwhelmingly positive vibes at this hostel - a good (10 blocks to city centre) quiet location very near a large supermarket with great staff who are helpful, sociable and interesting. It gets you into the Mendoza wine thing really well with free Malbec from 19.00 - 21.00 every night which is great for socialising with other travelers. When we were...

Staff are very friendly - especially I should mention Jorge, whose to-the-point tips saved us from a lot of headache. Breakfast is nice, rooms are cozy and give you a good rest. The showers could have been in a better condition, but it's ok. Would definitely recommend.

I ended up staying for a week this place was so good! The location is fairly central but quiet, the beds are comfortable and the wifi and breakfast are good. All the staff were great for telling us how to organise hikes and wine tours ourselves, and I met some of the best people I've met in Sth America! Can't...

Great hostel! Very friendly and one of the best breakfast I had in a hostel in south-America. It's free wine from 7 to 9, which is awsome. Would definitely stay there again if I was going back to Mendoza.
