claudias crepes con dulce de leche are wondeful, indeed however, we felt like in hospital or in prison in our room, but the other rooms might be different, as the hostels consists of two different houses around a nice (!) patio. in our room, there as only been a bed, a chair and a table. everything in white, the floor in red. no decoration as a sign of caring at all. the bathrooms smell strange and the cleaning stuff has always been placed next to the toilet which we found quiet desgusting.

This was without doubt one of our best hostel stays ever. Firstly, the staff - especially the lady in the morning - were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. They have really thought of everything here, great facilities, clean rooms and common areas, and some useful extras like a free washing machine and a bus card you can hire. Breakfast is superb (Claudia's crepes are the best!) and the activities like the happy hour and BBQs are great. Stay here!

Hostel Empedrado is a great choice for those staying in Mendoza. Their staff is exceptional, and they go out of their way to make your stay special. The best parts are the complimentary wine at 7-8pm each night, and the extensive breakfast in the morning, including omelets and crepes. However, the rooms are intolerably hot; the private rooms have no A/C and I was provided with a dusty and loud fan instead. Fell ill as result.

Warm and very friendly staff, great breakfast (Claudia´s crepes filled with dulce de lece are delicious!) and they offer some good tours for friendly prices as well. Located in a quiet street, at about 5 minutes walking distance to the nearest big supermarket. To you first cup of good coffee (Havanna coffee bar) is about 7 minutes walking.

It's an alright hostel. The bathrooms are placed very sporadically which is rather inconvenient. Wouldn't recommend for any stays longer than 2 nights

A really great hostel. The perfect balance between being able to meet people and relaxed atmosphere. We did the wine your and horse trekking through the hostel both were excellent. Breakfast is fantastic, lady makes you pancakes and eggs! My only negative is when it was my birthday we asked for the 'bottle of complementary birthday wine' as stated online 3 times with no action! With all the wine tasting and asados we probably didn't need the wine anyway! Definitely recommend this hostel.

Nice hostel for what we wanted with a really nice vibe from the people staying there. Lovely receptionist in the day who helped us with everything! Bad side was the rooms - we stayed in 1 private and 1 dorm during our time and both were insanely hot meaning a pretty poor nights sleep.

This hostel was amazing. We absolutely recommend it and would stay again in a heartbeat. Great atmosphere and very clean. 2 kitchens, hot water, amazing breakfast, and helpful staff for booking tours or explaining how to wine taste on your own for cheaper.

My friends and I had a great time staying at this hostel because of the staff and the other friendly travelers staying there. Immeadiately when we arrived, the lady at the front desk helped us plan our day and let us store our things before we had checked in. The delicious private asado and made-to-order dulce de leche crepes for breakfast in the morning were other highlights of our stay as well!

Positives are the breakfast! The showers were cold or really hot or really cold. Sheets, room and bathrooms not very clean. Some members of staff were very rude, others were fine. Defo do wine tour yourself!

Friendly staff with good chill out areas, fantastic warm showers and a well equipped kitchen. Great value for money with a good breakfast range and loved the happy hour wine! Would recommend for anyone wanting to meet people in a chilled out setting.
