Breakfast is amazing, you can order a pancake or scrambled eggs. The hostel organizes a lot of nice activities such as an empanadas cooking class. Even better, there is a happy hour.....every day....with free wine....nice! You can also do your own laundry for free if you like.
Nice hostel, good friendly atmosphere and easy to meet and hang out with people in the big communal areas. Beds are comfy, and rooms a good size, although they were havin a few problems with showers and the mixers on the tap but that didn't matter too much. Free breakfast was great.
Brilliant hostel - we extended our stay here. Clean, great atmosphere, wonderful terrace and pool, breakfast was amazing. A short walk to the main square, lots of organised trips but also really helpful staff who helped us visit the vineyards without joining a tour (much cheaper!). Washing machine and area to dry clothes was really handy. An excellent oasis after many weeks whistlestop travelling!
The hostel was a pretty quintessential hostel. Young people, nice atmosphere, wine happy hour. Two kitchens, tv room, outdoor garden area with tables and hammocks, group activities. We stayed in a private room, which was small and basic. The bathroom didn't smell so good. We booked a hike with the staff person in the evening, and the next morning, the staff could find no record of him making a booking for it. She did try and find us something else, but it was disappointing.

Good hostel, great staff, many activities if you want. Best breakfast so far!
Stayed there only for two nights, which was enough. Uncomfortable beds and it gets really hot at night even with the ventilators on. If you pick the wrong bathroom you are gonna have a bad time. Only ups were the other travellers staying there, who created a great atmosphere and the breakfast was nice.
Loved my stay here! It has been my favourite hostel in South America so far because of the people and atmosphere. The wifi worked too, the showers were hot, the breakfasts great and the Asado BBQ was amazing! I would definitely stay here again.
loved this place. the outdoor common area was a easy and laidback place to meet fellow travellers. the free wine hour also makes for easy new friendships. breakfast was one of the best ive come across in south america, and arranging tours/excursions was made easy by the staff. i was also pleased to have the staff contact the tour i was on to tell me i had left my cell phone and that they had stored it safely for me! fond memories of empedrado!
The hostel was nice, but not outstanding. The building has nice terraces, friendly staff, decent rooms, good atmosphere, and nice location. My favorite part was the breakfast, very nice and crepes are wonderful. However, the room i was in didn't have an air conditioner, many of the outlets were faulty, and the bathrooms i tried had some faults. One had either scorching hot water or freezing cold, another i spent crouching down in tub because showerhead didnt work with warm water.
Fantastic stay. Very friendly and welcoming. Free use of the washing machine and wine happy hour was a super bonus. Staff invited us for breakfast the morning before checkin-arrived at 6 am off the night bus and then invited us to stay for free wine happy hour the day we left on the late night bus. Super helpful with information about Mendoza as well. Would definately recommend.......best hostel we've stayed at in the past 3 months!
Pancakes and omelettes at breakfast were amazing! So worth getting up for. Staff were helpful enough. Rooms were a little old but clean.
Spacious hostel with friendly, helpful staff. Lovely pancakes for breakfast. Lots of tours on offer at the hostel and good value for money with certain deals. Cleanliness of the bed covers and some communal areas could be improved and some updating and maintainence in the bedrooms would help.
The breakfast was great, the swimming pool small but okay with the hot temperature. We had the poolhouse, a small walk to the bathroom and a little bit noisy. The hostel is a small walk to the centre, just two blocks in a more residential area.
I just loved the pancakes at breakfast! Just for that I would come back. They where really nice and drinking free wine at the small pool was a great way at spending mine evening.

Great breakfast, tidy rooms and good staff, all at a reasonable price. All a backpacker can ask for!
I had a great stay at this hostel! The staff and people I met at this hostel definitely made my stay more amazing! The pool was great to have on the very hot 33 degree days we had whilst I was there. I would recommend anyone stay here.
Nice hostel with great breakfast. Would recommend it for that alone!
Best stay ever at my trip around argentina. Nice staff, nice tours, nice location, best atmosphere ever! Great bbq and pizza night they organize. So many nice people and evrrbody is hanging around together in the back yard. And the free wine hour from 7 till 8 finishes it! Would recommend the place to everybody!
