Great little hostel, amazing staff, home cooked meals, everything you need is easily accessible. Highly recommend! Thanks for a great time.
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, and very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend this hostel.
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!
Great breakfast- worth staying even just for that! Really enjoyed our stay and would go back again if in mendoza!

This hostel is great! The breakfast is awesome!
Great atmosphere. Horse riding was amazing! Free wine was...lethal! Showers not great but ok. Breakfast and free washing machine amazing!
Very helpful staff, great breakfast and very comfortable place to stay with several spaces inside and out for socializing.
Excellent breakfast! Nice and helpful staff. The rooms are okay but the upstairs were covered in leaves because some windows and the door to the balcony were left open. Downstairs bathrooms were lot nicer. Big common areas, easy to meet people. Some noise but nothing major. Overall, value for the money.
Great breakfast , good atmosphere and great for meeting people -free wine helped, staff were very knowledgeable and helpful I would definitely stay here again.Activities through the hostel were fantastic we went on the horse riding and our guides Franco and Maxi were really fun and made it a great afternoon. The only minor downside was the wifi which still worked but could use an upgrade. Overall one of the better hostels I have stayed in.

Good hostel, if slightly further out from the town centre (about a 10 min walk). Breakfast is amazing (they'll cook you pancakes and omelettes) and happy hour of free wine is also great. Showers are average, but the rooms, kitchen and social areas are all good.
A very enjoyable stay, great atmosphere with lots going on and a decent breakfast. Thank you! (only disappointment was the empty pool!!!)
Fantastic hostel. Ana was wonderful. All staff were helpful. Best free breakfast in South America. Free wine at night. Had great fun playing football with the staff. Will be returning in October! Only area for improvement is showers are not very good, hard to control temperature and not much water pressure. Apart from that - perfect!
The location is the only issue and that's just because it's one of the furthest north from the center. The access to everything is easy in the city and the breakfast is great! Also the free wine hour and the various events are a must do.
Warm staff and great breakfast. Located a bit far from the center of town, but that makes it a bit more peaceful. I would recommend to couples or travelers trying to rest up. Staff was average, but the breakfast lady was so awesome i bumped them up a rating.
Breakfast is great, tours are good and easy to arrange, free wine is nice, rooms are ok, everything is cleaned daily, free washing machines are great, kitchen is nice but easily overrun with people, wi-fi is serviceable but not so great, good balance between sociability and not being crazy with drunken kids, patio and roof are nice, asado is death by meat, a good choice for mendoza and a good hostal experience overall, would stay again, wifi upgrade would be awesome
Very comfortable hostel in a quite neighborhood not far from the city. Amazingly friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms and communal areas. Good facilities and lots of activities. Good breakfast with tasty crêpes and free wine every night make the guest to extend their stay again and again. Thanks for everything, we had a really good time!
The breakfast is the best. The lady is very friendly and she makes the best pancakes. The hostel is located a bit out of the centre, but definitely walkable, even for a female traveller at night. You just have to be a bit careful and not flash your phone and camera etc. the hostel itself is fine. The bathrooms could be a bit cleaner and the dorms maybe need a bit of new paint, but overall it's ok. The free wine makes up for a lot of it! Good hostel, very friendly staff!
