I had such a lovely time here at the Hostel Empedrado! The only thing that was upsetting to me was that each room didn't have it's own bathroom. I'm not sure if the website was misleading or if I just missed it. Either way, I would definitely return here. It's a little bit of a taxi ride to get to the main parts of town but worth it with the lovely staff, comfortable beds, and great atmosphere.

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our website contains the description of the rooms and it says that we offer private rooms with or without private bathroom. All the dorms are with shared bathrooms.

This was our second stay at the hostel. The breakfasts are great and we enjoy the planned activities (free wine tasting, Saturday BBQ etc.). We were very impressed with the service this time - we were scheduled to arrive at 5:30am and expected to wait in the hostel until the 11am check-in time. When we arrived our room was ready for us and we were able to check-in right away and get some rest. That was a very welcome surprise. The only negative is the blocked bathrooms (common and en-suite).

Only stayed here one night before meeting friends at Lao. This one is a little more party with lots and lots of activities for guests to meet people. I personally preferred the chilled out vibe at Lao but would happily stay at either again

Great knowledgable staff who are also very flexible and accommodating to traveller needs. Breakfast was decent (cereal, bread, pastries with omelettes/crepes to order). Our double private was simple but nice, common area has a nice vibe with ESPN for Champions League and a very tasty asado evening.

Great place, lovely helpful and personable staff and a nice social atmosphere. Lots of common areas to hang out, terraces, courtyard and the "dinind area". Free wine from 7-8 huge bonus, as was the free use of a washing machine. Kitchen is kitted out sufficiently and breakfast is one of the better ones we've had in Argentina. Nice walk to town, supermarket, butchers and greengrocers just around the corner. Great info on tours and activities too. Would definitely stay again.

This hostel was good. Staff friendly and breakfast was amazing. We would recommend this hostel, however the location was not as central as we had hoped. It is 3 blocks to the main Street, but further to the city centre. The directions on hostelworld could be improved also.

Extremely friendly staff and great atmosphere. The breakfast was one of the best I had in Argentina. They served amazing dulce de leche crepes. I stayed in a private room that was pretty spacious and comfortable. However, the closets were very duty. Our room never got cleaned in 4 days. They offer a lot of tours with awesome and fun tour guides. We did the horseback riding tour and it was truly amazing. It ended with a pretty good Asado. I highly recommend it.

Awesome people, nice rooms, great atmosphere, just one of the best hostels I've stayed in in Argentina. The common areas and the kitchen are really nice and comfortable. On top of it they even serve pancakes with Dulce de Leche for breakfast and sice we stayed during the wine season they were offering a FREE WINE TASTING every evening!

The staff are super friendly and very keen to help where they can! The tours are great and the free wine/breakfast is awesome! A great vibe and a great way to meet people. The main door to our room would not close properly and therefore all belongings that could not fit into the lockers were on display for all to see.. The upstairs bathroom was desperate for a clean but the 3 on the downstairs level were ok and I used them instead. Would stay here again if my room door shut properly

Thanks a lot for your comments. As far we know in your room there was just one locker not working and we fixed it. Our description of the facilities says that not all rooms have air conditioning.

Its a great hostel. The dorms are not better than average and the fan makes a lot of noise, but the breakfast is great (pancakes :)) and the backyard is really nice and even has a little pool. You can do laundry which is appreciated. The atmosphere was really good and for me it was easy to meet nice people: free wine between 7-8 every day helps and so do the dinners arranged by the hostel.

free wine hour was great. people would congregate around the pool during the lead up, drinking a couple of beers. met some fantastic people and had 13 of us on our own DIY biking around the vineyard trip. great time in Mendoza. only 10min walk into town and big supermarket 200m away. got to be a bit careful around the city during the night - heard a few stories of people being almost mugged - even as close as 100m from the hostel at midnight. had a great stay however

Many thanks for your comment. Regarding the security issue we recommend our guests to watch their bags all the time and for coming back at night that they take a taxi.

Very nice hostel, only few blocks from the centre and in a very quiet area. Big lockers in the rooms and some at the reception, staff very helpful and friendly. Common areas are super, big kitchen and garden with small pool and barbecue area - try the asado when you're there ;)

Wow, what great bilingual staff. Facilities have everything you'll need, including washing machine on premise. Breakfast was average to above average. You eat and hang out in a courtyard that is covered, literally, by a malbec grape vine terrace, with hammocks and a mini pool to relax in. excursions are super easy to book with the staff and they offer very cheap and very delicious all you can eat pizza and asado at the hostel on different nights.
