All that needs to be said is 'Crêpes'. Just go and you know what I mean!

haha the best panqueques!! Thanks and Buen Viaje!!!


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 :-)

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.

Hey! Sorry about you being uncomfortable, wish you had said something while you where here. We're working to make things better! Buen Viaje jon!


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.

Thanks for your review!! Im sorry about the Wi-Fi. Its been a Internet company thing!! we're working on that!! BuenViaje!


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.

Thanks for the review!! Hope to see you back, and very glad you enjoyed your stay here!! Hope to see you back!! Buen Viaje!


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.

Thanks for your review guys! hope to see you back in Mendoza!! Glad you had a good time here! Buen Viaje!


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.

thanks for you review!! Buen Viaje!


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!)

Thanks for your review!! And hope to see you soon again! Buen Viaje!


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.

thank you very much!! we're glad you enjoyed it!!! Buen Viaje!


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.
