Really, good hostel; favourite so far in South America. Really friendly and helpful staff. Even though there were tours offered through the hostel they were more than happy to help you if you wanted to do things yourself (such as the bike and wine tour). Loved the breakfast; crepes, pastries, and omelettes. Excellent kitchen. Great social areas; especially the garden out back with guinea pigs! Excellent location (really close to the central market). They had a laundry machine too; free to use!
Had a great time at this hostel! All the feedback about the breakfast is true, best I've had in South America so far. Overall good atmosphere with fun activities and really nice staff. Big thanks to Andrew for all the help!
The best breakfast we have found in 6 weeks travelling: pancakes, as many pastries as you can eat and watermelon. Fantastic. Really great internet and computers to use. The staff are friendly and speak excellent english. The free wine tasting is also a plus, about a couple of glasses each per person. Mendoza doesnt have a lot to do but this hostel means it doesnt matter because you can just stay in the large garden and read or chat.
I had such a fun time here. Best breakfast ever!
THE BEST- Free wine hour everynight, Amazing Breakfast, Staff love life and make sure you do to, Amazing backyard, Good kitchen, Washing machine to use for free, and easy to meet other backpackers. Overall a sociable, inviting and comfortable hostel, with everything you need within walking distance. My friends got robbed and lost everything, the hostel helped in any way they could plus more!!. Thanks guys! Go to this hostel to this hostel for a legit Mendoza experiance!!
Free wine + good breakfast + free laundry makes this hostel a steal for the price...!!!! It also has a great atmosphere that comes from free wine hour where everyone gathers in the large kitchen to cook. They also have events a few times a week like emanda class, wine tasting, mate class (yes all free) and a big BBQ with plenty of food and drink to go around. This combined some of the most friendly staff (especially Maga!) really makes this a MUST stay when you are in Mendoza!
This hostel is very average, but please think twice before booking this hostel's horseback riding tour. My saddle was not properly attached, so shortly after starting it broke and I fell off the horse, and seriously bruised by head, tailbone and ribs. Our guide, Adrienne, was very friendly but completely unprepared for this situation and started blaming the gauchos, joking and trying to pretend that everything was fine. Please consider your safety first and book with a more reputable tour group.
Amazing hostel, very easy to meet people here. Asado night is very good, with free red wine all night. Amazing breakfast, best in South America so far. Showers need a make over. Wifi doesn't work outside, but I actually liked that, because then people are actually talking to each other instead of looking at their phone ;). Highly recommended!
when i arrived bed in the evening was not made (because landry service was late in the morning). no toilet paper in room and rubbish bin in bathroom full (because they dont empty them on sundays) and in most common toilets there was no toilet paper either (because showers are integrated in toilets and it would be impossible to keep the paper dry). my gutts were close to exploding - big problem. showers disgustingly filthy. only hostel since 10 years i left only hostel i left after first night.
I had a private ensuite double room and was just one person. The private rooms are located on the second floor, in the rear overlooking the courtyard. The noise level of the others partying until 1:00am was strange. I wouldn't mind, it WiFi worked in the room. The bathroom door handle fell off in my hand as I opened it. The pillows were very old. A little fresh paint on the walls would make this room feel and smell better. Mixing the hot & cold water was impossible. Nice people work there though
The room is clean at first glance but the dust seems to be brushed under the bed, it was disgusting.The bed was uncomfy, the pillow was non existent. But you come to expect this in hostels. The main issue becomes apart when you try to sleep. The hostel is a giant echo chamber. All night you hear slamming doors, toilets flushing, drainage, door bell, people walking, talking, kitchen being cleaned and prepped. I mean all night, 24 hours a day. If you want a good night sleep don't stay here.
Quite good, not superclean, but nice atmosphere free wine every night. Great breakfast
Had a nice time visiting Mendoza. The staff at this hostel were friendly and helpful. Yes the breakfast was very good here and the courtyard in the back is a great spot to chill on sunny days. Nice to be there during part of the wine festival. Having a journey up to Aconcagua and checking out the incredibly colourful mountains en route was spectacular. Try to get a weather update before going up there though because you'll want clear conditions and this said, use plenty of sun protection.Cheers
One of the best hostels I have stayed at in South America: Awesome backyard and kitchen invite a communal atmosphere of revellry! ´)
Everything was great!! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Only issue was the lack of Internet access.

I stayed here for a few nights while enjoying Mendoza. The hostel has a great atmosphere and it's easy to meet other travelers there. The kitchen is huge and easy to use. Breakfast is great with the omelettes and crepes. The backyard is great for chilling with a glass of wine and friends. The rooms were average but did have lockers. All of the staff rocks!
This hostel is exceptionally good. They offer the best breakfast I enjoyed in hostels so far (Although, when you get up a little later much of the food might be gone already. Sometimes they are somewhat inattentive regarding refilling milk, coffee, bread, ...). They arrange many activities for the evening that helps to get to know people. They have free wine happy hour from 8-9pm, asados, empanada classes, much more. When you go to Mendoza, stay in this hostel
Great breakfast, the outdoor area is very nice/relaxing. They have lots of activities at the hostel and set you up on tours. The only negative would be the showers are not nice and there's few of them. I enjoyed my stay.
Loved this hostel and it is great value for money. Cooked breakfasts were amazing and the hostel is in a convenient location. All backpackers were welcoming and friendly to one and other and got into the spirit and enjoyed the evenings drinking wine and hostel dinners together
