I took this Hostel due to the former evaluations. But from my opinion, the evaluators have been drunk or most are faked. The staff is very charming and pancakes are great. But for the rest: Forget it! The hostel itself is in a bad condition. It has nothing to do with a real wine culture in Mendoza. All organzied tours are mainly sales shows, which lasts each 15 min at every winery. Don't do the horse trip incl. BBQ! It was the worst BBQ in my life ever: Bad food and wine, held up in a dog's hat!

We arrived early in the morning and we could join breakfast immediately. Breakfast is nice, with crepes (but only the first day).They offer different activities in the hostel, such as empanada cooking class and free spanish lessons. The staff is very helpfull. It's about 20 minutes walking to the centre, supermarket is close. Atmosphere is fine and there is a pool and a big garden where you can chill.
Excellent staff who are wonderful at organising tours and suggestions for what to do. Hostel a bit outdated but didn't matter too much, we still enjoyed our stay here. Amazing crepes for brekky!
Excellent hostel! It was quaint, clean, and easily one of the best breakfasts in all of Argentina. Rooms were nice, had A/C, and showers/bathrooms were also cleanly. They even had a mini pool if you'd like. They also have a lot of organized events that are easy to book through the hostel. Not to mention, they also have plenty of free wine tasting within the hostel. :)
Nice hostel with good common area. Breakfast is the highlight and glass of wine each night is good. We had to change dorm on the last night (our own fault) and the second dorm was hot and stuffy with a fan that sounded like a lawn mower. First dorm had air conditioning and was really good.
20 minutes walk from main square;30 from park;40 from bus station main bar area;5 from market This place is great.It's hard not to gush praise.Staff are excellent (except 1 guy who told us vendimia was next week when it was that night!! :( ).I arrived worn out by the bus ride at 6am and they smilingly let me go to sleep and then have breakfast (the crepes really are that good)."Beginner friendly hostel" The bath by the reception is a bit wonky and could use a bigger window/ventilation. 9/10
