very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful breakfast (pancakes, bakery, omelette, cereals...), free wine in the evening (8-9pm), nice and big patio/garden with bbq, lots of extra activities on offer (some paid, some for free), use of washing machine for free, clean shared bathrooms, can get a bit noisy during night (depending on other guests/party and location of your room)
After spending time in four different hostels in Mendoza, plain and simple, this is the best hostel in town. Cleaning, facilities, beds, rooms, showers, everything is terrific. But the real deal is the huge breakfast, very important for a big day of walking, climbing, skying, etc, and off course the tremendous garden, really nice point for meeting people, cook a barbecue and hang out. A lot of free activities, like free local wine from 8 to 9 pm. Dont hesitate, this is the best hostel in town.
Perfectly fine for a couple of nights. There is a big kitchen which is fully equipped and clean. Great breakfast including pancakes or omelette. Not far from the main plaza. The staff are very helpful too. Rooms are basic but big.
Our first room was extremely cold, but the staff kindly upgraded us to an ensuite. The bedding needs updating. The showers are nearly always ice cold. Staff are very helpful and knowledgable. Crepes for breakfast are delicious! Good location near to the central plaza, shops and restaurants.
Location good, v accessible by public buses to the wineries on your own&works out cheaper to do yourself.free wine was good&we had an early check in-benefits of low season&the hostel being v quiet. Breakfast good. Negatives- RATS. In the dorm. Reported to the hostel 3 times&no effort to change the bins/sheets- after 1st report even found excrement in my bed&it kept us up all night! The hostel staff (bar 1 lovely helpful lady) seemed despondent to queries&arranging scheduled evening activities
Had a great stay! Everything was comfy except for my pillow (sorry).
Great breakfast. Fairly easy to get to from the bus station and a short walk to the park. Big grocery store about 10 minutes away. Kitchen was well stocked with everything except knifes, we could only find one that would cut anything. Very nice patio out back. The free wine was a bit of a gimmick but a glass of cheap malbec to start the evening wasn't bad.
although i had a couple things stolen during my stay, i can't attribute that to this wonderful hostel! the breakfast was one of the best I've had in South America, the wifi reached the rooms and the location was great. the bathrooms weren't as clean as the bedrooms, and the beds weren't *so* comfy, but overall, a great quality hostel! ^_^
I had the best weekend in Mendoza. The hostel was ideal. I found the staff helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The location is great, everything you need is very close. The hostel was spacious, with many areas to hang out, and the facilities were clean. I want to thank you for having me, and recommend it to other travellers
dorm was very small but has big lockers that hold all your Luggage, as long as people use that it's quite alright. Mattres was good.
Good, clean, friendly hostel. Good sized rooms, bathrooms aren't the best but good enough. The breakfast is incredible! The staff are super helpful and friendly. Good common room and huge outdoor area. We extended our stay because the hostel was so great.
The hostel is centrally located. The staff seemed friendly. The internet worked great. The only downside is its extremely loud. everytime someone opens a door it sounds like it slams and it echos in the place. We arrived on a Sat. Everyone went out drinking and arrived at all hours of the night. We were exhausted from traveling. We had arranged for a week stay here but canceled after the first night because we could not get any sleep. The place had great reviews which is why I choose it.

Positive points : breakfast = best one till now in Argentina Atmosphère = big kitchen - best place to meet people Facilités = washing machine free Location : bus to buses terminal front of hôtel + 10 mns walk from independencia place. To improve : Cleaness : Many nice cleaning women but not done deeply. Bathroom + toilets: really, really old and not clean correctly. Sometimes not hot water and sometimes no water in toilet ! Organisation : confusion in booking
Loved the hostel - very friendly atmosphere, the staff were helpful, excursions were great and the free happy hour wine made us all very happy!!!

The Wifi was very poor some 20 yards away from the entrance, and so on our room (12?) The shower was tragically located somewhere above the toilet, and the floor stayed wet for our entire stay.

The hostel is well located and the breakfast is good. Didn't really like the atmosphere either.
THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. The breakfast is amazing. Eggs and crepes made to order 7 to 10 AM. its a small enough hostel to make good friends. Wine happy hour for an hour. The staff is super friendly, they go to great lengths to help you out. (Gracias, Guillermo!) The security is top notch. Locked away bags and buzz you in all day. Excursions booked through the hostel. Free laundry service. Basically.. just stay here. I cant recommend it enough.
Stay Here! Great Location, full of information, very helpful & friendly stuff! ( Magali & Ever thank you so much ) Clean, safe, organized. Great Breakfast ( best pancakes/crapes is Latin america! ) and, as all this wasn't enough you will discover the wine hour at 20hs!
Nice place to relax. Student atmosphere as opposed to backpacker. Pool was empty. Realky nice/friendly staff.
Bunk beds were of very poor quality compared to other hostels of same price, Sheets etc poor, ended up sleeping on top of the bed.
