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. Good times. Staff were really friendly and atmosphere was cool. Even free use of the laundry machine. Crepes were good, locaysh was good, near all the good stuff. Yeah, I recommend
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!
Very good place to stay :)
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
great breakfast, good location, nice tours lockers were all broken in our room, no A/C
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
Nice hostel, a bit far from city center. nice pool. weak a.c.
Amazing staff; full of knowledge and energy. The morning eggs was a nice touch.
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 ;)
Very social hostel wtih great tours to vineyards and horse back riding. I definitely would stay there again.
Staff was amazing, super helpful. She even gave us a bus pass because we didn't have coins. A very welcoming place. The people are awesome. The facilities need updating badly but the environment was great. Breakfast was the best! Crepes made to your order!
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.
Great hostel! The grape tree live roof, the free wine every night, the free laundry, the cool staff! Definitely recommended!
We booked for 5 days and we were glad we could leave on the second because the room is on the terrace and its receive sun all day long so its like an oven or a sauna. The air conditioner doesnt work properly and we tried to ask staff to fix the problem but they said it was already fixed. Everything on the room is old, ugly and broken: the roof has pieces falling down and the bathroom has sink and faucet broken. Staff are not helpful and are not kind. I think its the worst hostel I ever stayed.
