The hostel is big so when you're a solitary traveler, it's perfect to meet people. It could not be more well located, the staff is awesome, there were free wine, free tour, free spanish class. Bathrooms and kitchen are ok and the beds are good. The breakfast is the best I ever had in a hostel, there are so much...

This hostel has it all. And by all I mean free wine from 7-9. Not only does this bring all the travellers in the hostel together every evening but it makes for a great way to relax after a long day exploring Mendoza and the surroundings. The BBQ they laid on was excellent and the hospitality was superb. It also...

We loved our stay at Square Indepencia. Very friendly staff, decent breakfast and lovely courtyard for socialising. Great location with everything you could wish for within walking distance. The only negatives were that the WC in our twin didn't smell amazing (suspect drains) and the main showers/toilets weren't very clean, other than that a great stay and would recommend to...

Hostel Independencia is a big hostel with a great chilled out feeling. It has 24-hour reception and absolutely amazing staff who were very helpful with everything from organising activities either with a company or by yourselves, to giving tips on restaurants or putting on Asado’s, even just hanging out and chatting on a lazy afternoon. The breakfast is great, a...

Staff very helpful and available, perfect localization, nice decoration BUT the private rooms are random quality... If you get the good one it's all right but we got a very small and dirty one... Only bad point. Recommended

This place is not the Marriott or a Kimpton, but was a GREAT hostel to stay at. I had the private room near the front desk and was afraid of the noise being bad at night, but it was not an issue. If you're looking for a sparkling clean kitchen and bathroom this place (or any hostel) is not for...
