We really liked our stay at hostel Lao. Staff is really friendly and they have some good tips for Mendoza and the area! The room was nice and clean and the garden is great! The kitchen was big and had everything you needed. Would recommend this place!
Great place to stay to visit Mendoza. The staff is very helpful! The breakfast was really good too!

A beutiful hostel in Mendoza! The double room was huge in size and very comfortable. The guys running the place are really friendly and helpful, and the communal areas are spacious and cozy. We enjoyed our stay here!
A great hostel, which is ideally located near to the bus station. The owners were really helpful and when trying to get to Santiago and the border was potentially closed, they provided a few updates which was really helpful. A very chilled out hostel, in a lovely house. Will definitely stop at Hostel Lao when I'm back in Mendoza.
Overall a clean and friendly hostel. Didn't quite live up to the hype. No WiFi in the back rooms is pretty frustrating
Very nice place in Mendoza. Recommended Tours were nice and worth the money. Breakfast was good, sometimes with small croissants. Staff was good and helpful, met very nice people there. Sometimes you have to wait for a bathroom, but never to long. A top choice in Mendoza. Big Common area with Couches and garden
The hostel is very cosy and the owners have lots of good tips on what to do in Mendoza. We enjoyed our stay at the hostel!
Great hostel and great staff! mike and his wife are supernice and the hostel attracts lots of friendly people.
Hostel Lao was wonderful! Very friendly staff, good location, comfortable rooms. We booked tours through a nearby travel agency for much cheaper than identical ones offered through the hostel, but that's probably true with most places.

A great hostel with very helpful and friendly staff. You can book excursions through them very easily (with a small convenience few) and cook throughout the day. Downside: if not staying in a room with private bathroom, you will be waiting for bathroom (only 2 public ones) at peak hours. Overall, good value, good breakfast (common Argentine so no eggs, but good jam), and good staff. There were two dogs btw.
There was a really nice homely feel to this place, staff were excellent! I was in a double room out the back with a shared bathroom, I couldn't lick my door and it was quite nosiey I could just here the people in the room attached to me but it was very clean and I would stay there again, just maybe not in the room out the back, would still recommend this place though as staff and location were top notch!
I think that Hostel Lao is a good choice. It provides you the chance to meet a lot of backpackers. The atmosphere is perfect: cozy, welcoming and friendly. I would recommend better chairs for the dinning table and some proper glasses for drinking wine, after all this is Mendoza!
Really nice place.. Good, homely vibe. Sweet outdoor area. Friendly and helpful staff. Solid beds and lockers. Decent kitchen and a nice dog. Wish more hostels were like this.
Great place to stay and great location.
Excellent service, lovely staff, clean and warm hostel. Very homey and comfortable. Staff were so kind and helpful, breakfast was delicious. Only bad point was no WiFi in the rooms that were outside the main part however this wasn't a big problem.
Cleanest hostel we've ever been to. Everyone was nice including other guests. Some of the staff were incredibly helpful. Others were ok - not bad, but just didn't show much enthusiasm in interactions. They helped coordinate all of our daytime activities and we ended up hanging out with other guests a lot. The dogs were super fun to play with and very friendly.
great hostel, friendly staff that were very happy to answer all questions and help out.
The hostel staff (one guy in particular) were fantastic and really helpful! The hostel was fine, we had two rooms; the one at the front was war but noises (double room with en suit) and the one at the back was quiet but cold (private room with shared bathroom). The kitchen was a bit small but usable. It really was the help funks staff that made this hostel!!
Definitly the best and most helpful staff I ever met in a hostel. In a word: the hostel earnes the titel of being one of the best hostel in Argentina!!!
Best hostel I stayed in South America. Friendly staff! Good breakfast, great tour offers. Good atmosphere, really clean. Best beds ever. Thank you
