I loved this accommodation specifically because it was exactly what we were looking for! Situated just outside of the hustle and bustle but well within walking distance of everything in the centro commercial area! A great safe and relaxing environment with ample common rooms to meet other travellers from all over the world. So many activities and tours available daily in house and with external operators! The staff are very friendly, very attentive and the little details make for super value!!!

The activities that the hostel offers are GREAT! Definitely recommend horse back riding. Do NOT do a bikes and wine tour. It seems like a short distance but is terribly long and not to mention the bikes are AWFUL. I had a flat tire and so did my friend 20 minutes into the day. Bad. I would recommend doing it by van or something. The breakfast at the hostel was great! yummy crepes with dulce de leche. The bathrooms always smelled like poop which made the entire hallway smell.

I stayed here for 2 nights. Te staff was really nice and helped in whatever you needed. The kitchen is spacious and the common areas are great. I liked that on fridays, the hostel organizes dinners for a fair price. It's an excellent opportunity to get to know everyone in the hostel. The one thing I didn't like was the bedding, it looked really cheap and old. Besides that, it is a good hostel.

I enjoyed everything about this hostel. Helpful staff (especially anna), good social vibe (but not in your face about it), plenty of kitchen space, warm showers, comfy rooms with lockers and charging stations, and decent WiFi. Well worth the extra couple of dollars.

A lot of people like this hostel, my friend even recommended it as one of his favorite hostels. I'm not sure what happened with us, but we did not like it. It is not dirty, but I would not call it clean either. Seemed very old and kind of run down. Not sure if it was the bed, but i woke up with a couple bites on my arm. The 2nd night I slept fully clothed. We had the opportunity to stay here another night due to a bus cancellation, and we chose another hostel. I would never stay here again.

Great breakfast including pancakes, omelettes and eggs. Free wine 7-8 and daily activities make for a great atmosphere.

Free wine is great. The facilities are old, and run down a bit but fine to use. We had an issue with the staff not keeping the noise in the communal areas down after a reasonable hour, in fact they even joined in. If you have a room on the ground floor the noise echoes down the hall. They did put us in a 6 bed dorm with only two of us, which they didn't have to do. I'd recommend it.

What a fantastic hostel! Loved everything about the place and we had the best 3 days so far and made so many friends. The optional tours are excellent especially the bike and wine tour and the horse riding tour! We will be back to Mendoza and look forward to staying back at this hostel!
