It's always hot It needs a couple of ACs. The bathrooms have no ventilation, so they are even hotter. The free wine is terrible. There is a "pool". The only good thing are the pancakes and eggs at breakfast.
Cheap hostel, great for one night. Advertised with pool, really needed in Mendoza heat, but it was too dirty to use. could not get any wifi anywhere in hostel first day as too slow, even when staff re set. Eventually managed to connect after 30 minutes the next day in breakfast room. They do have 2 computers you can use. Beware of hot water in shower, I burnt my hand it was boiling hot and came out very fast. Crepes for breakfast was a nice touch. Good non party hostel, large kitchen.

Loved my stay here, felt like being home and wish it could have been longer. They have everything you need, including a glass of wine each night. Great helpfull staff, super clean, awesome building, breakfast hard to beat! Just get a room with ac if traveling in summer.
Great breakfast served by the very sweet lady! Outside area is great for relaxing, which makes it easy to get to know other travellers. Plenty of information available, and an amazing bbq on Tuesdays. All in all a very positive experience, even though it is far from restaurant /bar areas.
The activities make this place - free wine happy hour and great BBQ (were the ones that we tried but there are many more). Privates with bathrooms (air con included) are excellent value compared to privates with shared bathroom (no air con) which are not.
The location is a bit far from the center, but still easy to walk to and see all the sights. The atmosphere was perfect - good common areas where you easily socialize with other travelers & the happy hour & BBQ was awesome. But it's not a party hostel. The tours they offer are also great and really good value. I had a private room and it was a really good value. The hostel is clean, but older. The upstairs shower is really small. The staff is nice & bfast is awesome (esp Claudia's crepes!)
Staff really helpful, great social spaces, happy hour free wine at 7pm. Aircons need maintenance as rooms are too warm. Location is a bit far from centre but okay. Supermarket nearby.
Really good, social hostel. Helpful staff. Very clean. Good breakfast and happy hour. Big outdoor areas.
Free grapes providing shade over the terrace. The pool was good (could have been cleaner). The free wine was excellent. Some rooms have aircon but unfortunately we were moved to one without, and it was quite warm. Suggest doing the "hike" by yourself, as I think 350 pesos for some bread and ham and a hungover guide wasn't quite worth it.
The hostel had a good mix of people. It was pretty easy to strike up a conversation and had a pleasant vibe, but it wasn't a loud party hostel, which is good for me. The rooms are basic but clean. Oh, and it's only about 2 blocks from a supermarket, which is great. I didn't go on the tours they arrange, but the staff were very helpful and willing to call and confirm things.

Good breakfasts with best crepes :)
Great, helpful staff. Crepes every morning for breakfast! You can drink the tap water. The pool is really just a big bathtub of cold water but it's relaxing at the end of the day. Overall great experience. Happy hour was wonderful.

Nice hostel! I really enjoyed my stay there. The staff is very helpful :) the location is good and the breakfast is excellent.
Great Hostel, staff helped everyday in several moments, people cleaning everything all the time. Ana as usual kind, willing and disposed. The girl that do the crepes at the kitchen always fine!! Congratulations
Good hostel. Beds are okay, there are a lot of bathrooms. Excellent pancakes for breakfast! Thank you Claudia! Downside: quite far from city center and bus terminal. Staff gave me wrong information once but they helped to solve the problem. They were flexible and friendly. They were also helpful in arranging a certain tour that was not on today's menu in the hostel.
Felt that this hostel deserve yet another good review! Definitely stay here - everything a hostel should be. I debated staying here as it's slightly more than other hostels in Mendoza but it proved completely worth it. Comfortable, friendly, great breakfast and helpful staff. Feels like you are staying in a big house with all your friends. The free wine at 7pm means it's good for just meeting people and talking, not just saying hi and that's it.
This is a great hostel! The best bit being the free wine happy hour every night. Not just for the obvious reasons, but it creates a really social atmosphere. Only downside was no fan / ac in the private twin room by the pool but this wasn't a huge problem. Very good facilities, roof terrace, free laundry etc and staff are very helpful. Highly recommend!
Super friendly and helpful staff. great atmosphere,met a lot of cool people from all around the world. best breakfast ever had while traveling.the shower were worm,very clean. one of the best hostels I stayed in.
Best hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff are amazing, from the moment we arrived to organising our transfer to our next accommodation in the wineries. Claudia makes the best breakfast crepes, and there is a great breakfast selection of boiled eggs, sweet and savoury breads, fruit, tea, coffee & hot chocolate. The hostel can be as social or private as you like. There is a free washing machine which we used almost every day it was such a luxury! Franco also runs amazing tours with the hostel.
