This is a lovely hostel with all you could need. Agreed some minor renovation work would help, but does not take away from the really helpful and friendly staff, great breakfast, good facilities (including free laundry and hanging space, good kitchens, small pool, two terraces and TV room). The housekeeping staff are constantly around the place keeping it clean. There are nightly activities like wine-tasting, empanada making and Spanish lessons. All tours can be booked from here too. Great!
My boyfriend and me had a really good time in the here. The room was spacious, the bed good, kitchen well equipped and the bathrooms clean. The hostel also has a nice atmosphere offering wine tastings, BBQ and so on, even though their free wine is not really good quality, but hey it's free. The only problem was that the window in our room was facing the big patio were people talked loudly until the early morning hours. So no sleep without earplugs.
Awesome staff, awesome crepes for breakfast.

Great hostel. We were a group of 3 and stayed in a 6 bed and a 4 bed dorm. The facilities were good and the atmosphere was great. One if the highlights is the breakfast, lemon and dulce de leche flavoured Crepes. The staff were very helpful and free use of the washing machine is a massive bonus. Strongly recommend staying here.

The hostel was very accommodating despite my last minute plans to stay for a couple more days in Mendoza. It offers plenty of activities that allow you to really explore the city of Mendoza, the vineyards, and the Andes. I had a great time!
Super helpful staff coordinated a last-minute bike and wine trek for me without any hassle. Truly a "must-do" activity while in Mendoza. The place had a nice outdoor terrace for breakfast / drinks at night, and felt very secure. Thanks for a great time!
the interior is quite old and a lot of things are broken in the rooms
Nice hostel with a big kitchen. The outside area has a roof of grapes which you can eat and there's free wine for one hour every evening. The rooms are fine with a little shelf with a light and a power point by each bed. This really nice lady makes pancakes every morning and brings a smile to your face! Don't book the two-bed dorm though as it's tiny and only has one bunk bed, nothing else.
Claudia's crepes are great!

All that needs to be said is 'Crêpes'. Just go and you know what I mean!
We have had a great time in this hostel where we met nice people! There is a nice kitchen and living room as well as a free Laundry machine and free wine from 7 to 8 PM ! The highlight of all has been the delicious breakfast, crêpes made with love ! A big thank you to her and all the team for making feel us like home ! Hasta luego :-)
Good place with a couple of kitchens to use, free wine, fast internet, helpful staff. Would recommend
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 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.
