Very nice hostel. Definitely recommended. Good atmosphere, nice garden, good breakfast. Only disappointment was the christmas-eve dinner. It was nice but absolutaly not worth the 600ARS we had to pay.

"We are sorry you found 600pesos(about 50 euros) for half a bottle of great torrontes, a bottle and a half of excellent Malbec, 4 home made empanadas, a chorizo and morcilla starter, 400grammes of excellent organic beef ribs, salads, a bottle of high end champagne and pudding nibbles to be too expensive. We made 2euros between us per hour for all our hard work and gave up a large portion of our Christmas Eve. You consumed the rest."


A pretty place in a great location. I was very happy with the breakfast on the first morning which included fruit and great bread, however this diminished in both range and quantity on other mornings. Great atmosphere and met lots of cool people. Unfortunately I agree with others regarding Christmas dinner, it was not good value considering the amazing food and wine offered in Mendoza for half this price.


Very friendly staff and nice hostel. The garden is small but beautiful. You can use the very clean kitchen and living room if you want. The included breakfast offers much more than most hostels. Unfortunately our room was a bit noisy because it was right next to the street. But during the night there were very little cars. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We are really happy you enjoyed your stay. About the room; when you say, "right by the street", I would like to clarify that the room is street facing but 4/5 metres back from the road. Latin American cities are noisey but the room is quadrupled glazed to isolate as much noise as possibe and as you say, "at night there are very little cars" so sleeping should not be an issue. We will continue to work to isolate as much street noise as possible for a "silent" room. Safe Travels


The staff was realy helpfull!


Lovely garden, friendly staff and an adorable dog. Enjoyed cooking on the bbq-just need to buy wood from local shop (15pesos). Double private rm with shared broom definitely 'cosy'. Great overall vibe in the hostel.Breakfast was fine when there was some, unfortunately particularly when Mike (owner) wasn't there had to keep asking for more.Maybe a shorter breakfast service

Thanks for your feedback. We have new morning staff who are struggling a little to make sure everything is exactly as it should be. It will happen but we need to be a little patient for now. Sorry you had to ask for breaky re-fills, but at least there was always plenty to re-fill with! Safe Travels


Great hostel, nice and clean. Friendly and helpful staff. They are more than happy to recommend places to visit, wine


Really nice and relaxing hostel, near to the busstation and the main streets. Small and clean, with good atmosphere!
