Chimbas is a great little clean Hostel in Mendoza. Staff is extremely nice and helpful. Had a private room which was spacious. There's even a pool which is nice and refreshing. Nice pastries for breakfast. It's a 10min walk from the bus terminal.

If you're looking for a friendly, quaint and quiet place to stay in Mendoza, look no further. A beautiful guesthouse with a lovely courtyard and pool and nice clean rooms. Claudio is such a lovely person and went out of his way to make us comfortable including preparing breakfast early before we left on a day tour. He had great... More

Very nice hostel with pool and garden - though not situated in the centre, but cabs to the centre are cheap (about 30-40 pesos).The room was clean and the staff was very polite and helpful. The breakfast is included and for a hostel ok - nothing special. We really enjoyed our stay at Chimbas.

A nice colonial house style. This little hotel is very cute. Also located in a nice spot in town. You can ask the reception to order you a taxi and you will be soon at a buzzy location - and that is quite affordable. Lots of restaurants and bars. Very good price, this hotel offers you no luxury at all,... More

this place exudes charm and the manager is very helpful and speaks English. This hostel is near the bus station. Although it isn't in the center of town, we easily walked the distance to the town center. I enjoyed the beautiful garden area. It is a peaceful, picturesque place and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We spent 3 nights in this hostel, it was very hot in Menoza at the time and the pool and garden area was very pleasant at days end. The young guy on the front desk was super helpful and had great local knowledge. It was a little noisy as it is close to the freeway, also it was around 2ks... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Hostel Chimbas February 2013. Staff were excellent and really looked after you. The garden is a great place to chill in. They provided very good kitchen facilities. Breakfast was pastries and coffee.

The young guy who runs it is really friendly and helpful, and this is probably the cleanest hostel we've been to in Argentina. The garden's excellent too. However, be warned, you're not allowed to use the cooking facilities and they lock the kitchen after they've made breakfast. You still have access to a fridge and microwave but you expect more...

This hostel has a tranquilo atmosphere among guests and is not a party hostel. With space inside and out to read or surf the internet on their reliable wifi, it is spacious and quiet. It lacks comfy furniture to curl up but tables and chairs abound in the large dining rom and back patio surrounded by gardens. The wifi reaches... More
