Good location and reasonably clean, but this is definitely a traditional hostel, in all respects, not a hotel-type hostel (even though there are private rooms). That's not necessarily a bad thing, just be aware of that when booking.
I am currently an exchange student in Buenos Aires and eight of my friends and I wanted to take a weekend in Mendoza. We booked the 10-person room for three nights and absolutely loved it. The staff at the front desk was incredibly knowledgable, friendly, helpful, and fun. They helped us plan our bike tour of the vineyards, our day of hiking in Pontrerillos in the Andes, and we even had an asado one night that ended up being the BEST meal most of us have had in recent memory. HIGHLY recommend.

Breakfast was a bit average you had to ask for the bread and milk, bit weird. Good wifi and kitchen facilities. Bins in the bathroom need changing and soap filled up. Very new and clean mostly. Staff was amazing and always helpful! Had a great time here would stay again!
