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.

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.

Great hostel, highly recommended! Very nice and clean facilities and good location walking distance from the centre. There are some nice common areas like the patio and terrace, but I generally found that it lacked a bit on the atmosphere and socialising. Not necessarily the hostel´s fault, it could have been the guests at the time. Big pluses are the breakfast (delicious pancakes with dulce de leche everyday!) and the all you can drink wine happy hour every day!

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!

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.

Good fun hostel. The staff are very friendly and helpful because they tell you everything about the tours, book them and sort it all for you. The location is good because its a little walk from the centre so its quiet, but its still easy to get into.

I had a fantastic stay at Hostel Empedrado. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to help with planning your stay. The outdoor area was a perfect atmosphere to meet fellow travelers on down time. Lastly, the breakfast was very good and filling. Cecilia made delicious creps every morning. I highly recommend this hostel.

The staff was very friendly and helpful in getting us situated in Mendoza. The Malbec happy hour and freshly made breakfast were excellent touches. The facilities were generally very cozy but the bathrooms were annoying to shower in and rarely hot/adequate pressure. Also, towels we rented from the hostel had stains on them, the garbage in our 4 person room hadn't been emptied, among other little things. An excellent value for money depending on your priorities.
