We stayed 5 days in this hostel and it is the best place we stayed in yet after 11 weeks.. We did the wine/bike tour run by the hostel and the white water rafting too. The girls at reception Belen and Lucia were so helpful..They even drink wine with the guests.... We had free wine every evening as much as... More

This was my worst stay in South America. I was very annoyed at what was promised but not delivered. The washing machine is broken, and the receptionist said she wasn't sure when it would be replaced. But we could use the really crummy machine at a sister hostel. The computer for guests' use is also broken. There are no plans... More

Love this place Seems like it was an old villa split house type thing that has been adapted to be a cool, quaint hostel with tonnes of character. Beds are clean and comfy. Good showers and bathrooms. Each bed has power points and a little ledge to store books and tech etc. Plenty of locker space. Two kitchens both more... More

This was a nice (usually quiet) place to stay in Mendoza that is in a nice neighborhood but still within easy walking distance of the busier downtown. The free wine they had every night at 7 to 9 pm was an excellent addition and the included breakfast was also nice. The breakfast lady was very proud of her crepes. Jorge... More

Great hostel, the stay was made even more welcoming by Jorge who seems to work from early afternoon until the night shift starts. Lots of activities - free and paid for. The hostel is 1 block from a supermarket, and 7 blocks from The main Plaza. And 5 blocks from the main bus stop to Maipu. We stayed for 5... More

This is a super well run hostel staffed by great people who are really friendly and helpful with English spoken very well too. They even serve a real breakfast including eggs and a lovely crepe cooked for you by a super nice lady Claudia! Nice terrace and common areas too. Asado nights, pizza nights and other activities too.

We stayed in one of the private rooms and found it very nice. The hostel was clean, staff were great, and the breakfast was amazing. We did the half day wine tour with them and had a lot of fun on it. On our last night they had an Asado (bbq) and basically everyone in the hostel joined in for... More

Nice, clean, friendly hostel. All staff were very helpful, particularly Belen! The double room was a good size. However, in the daytime it got very hot as the sun shone straight onto it but fine at night and we slept well. There was also a fan/air con which kept the room cooler too. We would recommend staying here!

This was by far the best hostel that I've ever stayed at. The breakfasts and asados (barbecues) were fantastic, the rooms were comfortable, and the staff were incredibly helpful. There was an awesome social atmosphere without it being a party hostel. We went on two tours that we organized through the hostel. One was a bikes & wine tour (a... More

The hostel has friendly staff, and great breakfast - Ask if Claudia's making crepes. The private rooms are a bit small, and the bathrooms / toilets attached to them are REALLY small. The dorms are probably a better bet here, the common bathrooms are very spacious. The outdoor area (backyard) is a great place to spend time Myra at the... More
