Our return visit to Mendoza took us back to a favourite location. It was nice to return and see that the many activities we saw in 2015 were still being offered both within and without the Hostel. Eduardo 's staff exhibited our expectations of them in their friendly and helpful manner. For us he and his companion wine tour guide...

The hostel is cheap, so expectations should not be too high. Kitchen is OK but not very clean. Common rooms including garden are comfortable. In the 2 person dorm you hear everything in the garden very well, you wont sleep very well at night if people are talking. Matrasses are awfull. Breakfast is fine. People at reception are very nice...

Lovely staff, super friendly welcome even offered breakfast immediately after our early check in. Breakfast great, as much as you can eat cereal, pastries, bread, jams and dulce de leche (even homemade marmalade), juice, coffee, tea, milk and fruit. Free wine in the evening, again as much as you want between 7 - 9pm. Wifi perfect. Free use of washing...

This review is one year late but finally we're doing this. The crepes are amazing here and the beautiful kind, caring lady that makes them each morning made our hearts melt with happiness. Well worth a stay here just for that smile and those crepes to wake up to!

I stayed for the weekend in this hostel. The rooms are comfortable and the badrooms are clean. There is a small pool in the cozy garden. I loved the rescue cat at the hostel. The staff is friendly and helpful.

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.
