Excellent hostel! Friendly/helpful staff. Excellent breakfast with crepes and omelettes! The patio was a nice place to hang out and the hostel had many free activities including wine happy hour, wine tasting classes, mate tasting classes, and more!
We stayed at Punto Urbano for just a weekend and I wish we could have stayed longer! They have free wine (!!!) every night, which is awesome in itself, but also a good opportunity to meet people. We met such great, fun people while drinking wine on the patio under the trees, and also during the vineyard tour that was organized by the hostel. The accommodations themselves were pretty average but comfortable enough and clean so I can't complain! All in all it was a great experience.

The atmosphere at the hostel is wonderful! All the free activities that the hostel offers is fantastic and a must do; especially happy hour every day. Also, Claudia, the women who serves happy hour, is so kind and really add to the family atmosphere at the hostel.

I traveled for a month through Argentina and this was the best hostel I stayed in. Nice room, good wi-fi, great breakfast. I stayed here for five nights. It was maybe a bit too long for Mendoza, but the hostel makes it worth. Claudia Vinos is preparing every night the snacks and give you free wine. I can recommend this hostel to everyone!
A great place! Staff are very helpful and nice, good facilities and the atmosphere is awsome! Highly recommended.
Nice hostel in a good location. Huge kitchen and outdoor area as well as TV room. Staff were cool and helpful. The hostel offers free laundry and wine between 7-9pm everyday. Rooms were spacious and the showers were hot!!
The rooms could use a fresh coat of paint and new sheets, and the bathrooms could be cleaner. Breakfast was amazing, and the free wine tasting was excellent. Courtyard is nice and there is a great atmosphere about the place. Staff were lovely and really helpful.
Pros: great value (wine included!), excellent location, pretty courtyard, solid breakfast (eggs!), large lockers, washed my laundry for free, etc. Cons: dorm bunk beds transmit every tiny movement. Overall: great hostel! I recommend it to other traveler's frequently.
Best hostal I have stayed at. 8 bed dorm is better than 6 though as plugs at each bed. Free wine, great staff and great breakfast. The good reviews are very true.
We thoroughly enjoyed Punto Urbano. A simple 30peso taxi ride from the bus station into a lovely hostal. The garden area was a happy surprise The kitchen was more than adequate as was the breakfast. The staff were very friendly. Security meant that the front door was kept locked with a buzzer system for entry. We were entertained in Mendoza by a weekend event in the Central park with BBQs and live groups performing. Mendoza was a happy experience.
staff very helpful. had some fun evenings (wine tasting and bbq). the backyard is a great place to hang out (esp on sundays when the whole city is closed). the bike wine tour is recommendable. but internet kept dropping off and the bedrooms and bathrooms need an upgrade
This is an excellent hostel in the great city of Mendoza....The location is Superb... The rooms are spacious and you certainly get great service and attention from the staff. At the front desk you can count on Heber to give you the up to date info on the tours or directions to visit the wineries on your own and the happy hour with Claudia every night with free WINE and Sandwiches......Breakfast included and prepared upon your request. NO DOUBT this is the best value in town !!
I'm not sure what the dorms are like but the double rooms need some updating and cleaning. Stains on sheets and in bathrooms (walls and floors). Our room wasn't cleaned whilst we were there. Breakfast was nice. Was great to have the option of either an omelette or crepes to be cooked fresh for you! Free wine and snacks from 7-9pm which was also fantastic and a way to meet other travellers.
One of the better hostels I've stayed in S.America. Excellent breakfast served by a lovely staff member. Staff friendly, helpful and approachable, they seem genuinely interested in making sure you get the most out of a visit to Mendoza. Common rooms + kitchen spacious and comfortable, ideal for meeting and talking to people. Lovely big garden area. I would recommend staying in the 8 bed dorm instead of 6 bed, as the 8 bed has power outlets + light for each bed - only a few power outlets in 6 bed
Nice hostel, great atmosphere and free wine everyday at happy hour. The hostel also organises occasional free events like language courses and wine-tasting! We booked the private apartment for two, which was spacious, but it also hosted the central heating - making it quite noisy...

Very good breakfast, with crepes and omlettes made fresh. The hostel was in a great location. Staff could probably be better organised at remember which beds are already taken, I was given a bed that had already been given to someone else, and it caused a bit of a problem.
The best hostel I stayed in in the world. I really felt at home at all time. All the staff are excellent from the receptionists to the cleaners, cooks, etc. It is a very comfortable hostel, with plenty of bathrooms, always available, in very good condition. A beautiful Patio that lends itself to meet people and share beautiful moments. Every day give free sandwich and wine. Thanks Claudia !! The richest sandwiches! I totally recommend this hostel. A hug for all staff: Lu, Heber, Nacho & Milton.
I was very satisfied with the service and the personal! Old but clean facilities. As a football team had checked in, it was a bit noisy at night. Bad luck ;)
Great hostel, good location, friendly staff, free wine!
We really liked the place. The staff is super friendly and really helpful when ever you have questions or need advices. The olace is in a great location really central and super safe. The breakfast is yummy with coffe & tea, juces, bread, croissants, crepes, eggs... Also we had a double room witch was great. Hood value for money and clean place. Always something happening in the hostel and lovely free wine in the evening. Thanks a lot to the lovely staff for making our stay perfect in Mendo
