Really nice hostel with excellent social spaces and a big kitchen, would highly recommend!
I stayed at Hostel Lao for 4 nights and it was one of the best hostels I've seen. It's a short walk to the main street and not much further to Plaza Independencia. The room was spacious with big lockers and the bed was very comfortable. The whole hostel was always super clean. The yard was nice to relax in and meet other travellers. And the staff... these guys were so cool! Always willing to help and chat, and they put on asado and curry nights for us! I could not recommended them highly enough!
I had a really enjoyable stay at hostel Lao; the staff were really helpful, and the private room was great. I highly recommend this hostel!

We only stayed one night so did not get a full feel of the hostel. The weather was cold when we were there so we didn't get to use the garden area which I'm sure would be amazing in the sun! Breakfast was ok, some variation from the usual hostel breakfast. The electricity went down for a time but the staff ensured the property was locked up during this time. The staff were very helpful with our enquiries, including translating a medical need Wi fi good in main area but not in rooms by the pool.
Very good if you are looking for a peacefully place to stay. Location is good but not the greatest. Close to main street San Martin and the bus station, However, there is nothing much close at night time. Most of its staff is great. However, there is one that gives wrong indications for the tours or the buses. Very clean. Private rooms are old style but nice. Breakfast is OK.
Amazing vibe! The staff was friendly and with a lot of recommendations! I will back soon
Hostel Lao is a great place to stay. Relaxing atmosphere and very good social area make you feel like home. The place is one of the best hostels we have ever stayed, is very clean and well organised. The breakfast was great, there was different options everyday, The staff is very profesional, guys were very friendly, they really cared and helped us a lot! We had good time and met great people! Big hug for Francisco and Margarita for creating amazing atmosphere! We recomend 100%!
The sink in the four-bed dorm is a little difficult to use because the plastic bowl is a little too small and it's easy to get water everywhere...

Very nice hostel, stayed in the 4 bed dorm and private room with 2 beds. Everything is very clean. Beds are a bit small but felt very safe and comfortable in both rooms. Staff are beyond helpful, know the city well, great with the map, always willing to call and find out extra info. Some of the bathrooms are a bit old, but clean. Hot water takes a while to get going. The hostel is a 10 minute walk to the main bus station and 10 minutes to the main square.
Beautiful, tranquilo hostel, friendly and very helpful staff, lovely place to stay in Mendoza for a good price!
This hostel is fantastic! Great facilities and very VERY nice & helpful staff. The level of professionalism certainly exceeded my expectations as a 'backpacker'. This hostel is very relaxing and I felt like it was a great place to unwind for a few days. My compliments to the staff, and to the owner. Thank you very much.
Very nice staff and realy buena onda hostel!
Excellent hostel with awesome staff - all make you feel welcome immediately and turn your stay in a wonderful experience - especially Francesco and Maurice. The asado (BBQ) organized and prepared at the hostel was delicious and an excellent opportunity to meet with other guests and spend a nice evening together. The hostel has a great common area and a small garden to chill out. I stayed in. 4 bed dorm - mattress was excellent - room clean - lockers available. All in all a great place to stay!
Good value for money. Staff were great ; friendly and helpful with feedback (even before we arrived'via email). Wifi patchy in some rooms but excellent in common area. Breakfast had good choices, if eating early or late. Located abt 5mins wlk from bus station and 10-15 from main square.Rooms are spacious, the shower was a bit pokey, but overall bathroomgood.
Room & bathroom a good size. A bit of traffic noise, get one away from the street if possible. Good location; 5mins walk from bus station & 10-15 from central square & restaurants/cafes etc. Staff very helpful & knowledgeable. WIFI good in common areas but patchy in some rooms.
Room was clean and some good sized communal areas. However, the rooms and communal areas could do with updating. The area was nice and close to shops and restaurants.
We met really great people at hostel Lao, it's a very nice hostel. The staff had a few communication issues (different people telling us different times for activities and different payment policies) but they were very friendly and all issues were easily resolved with some patience.
Comfortable, relaxed and very clean. Located between the bus station and the centre 10 mins walk from either, nice common rooms with comfortable sofas, lots of places to sit inside and out, great kitchen, basic dorms, good sized lockers, very good WiFi, very friendly and helpful staff / owners, nice guests. Overall well above average.
