Property Description

Please don't just look at how well we are rated online everywhere, take two minutes to read about where you might be living so you can make sure we offer what you are looking for.

Hostel Lao is somewhere different. A small independently owned home for travellers. We offer the essentials you need to enjoy a great time in Mendoza at the lowest price possible. So that's a clean, comfortable space to sleep in. A clean, safe, social living environment with communal meals cooked by locals (not included in price) most weekdays. A decent kitchen simply but well equipped. We have a complete guide to Mendoza, free stuff, tours, restaurants, bars, where to buy your groceries and more available in the hostel so you can make the best of your stay in Mendoza no matter your budget. There's fast, by Argentine standard, wifi in communal areas that just about reaches all rooms. We are also well located, 10 minutes walk from the bus station and the main square in a busy corner of the city with great public transport to the wine regions, there plenty of local shops, restuarants and much more. Walk time to main bar strip 20/25 mins. There are plenty of other bars close by though!

All our rooms are different and go up in price if they have more facilities / are more comfortable. We try to cater for people who like those extra comforts, peops on a tighter budget and everyone inbetween. We only have reception from 0700/0800 till 1300/1400. If you will arrive out of this period we will give you the door codes so you can auto check in. If you dont get an email from us before arrival please get in touch so we can make sure you get in.
*Reservations for one day only should have to pay 100% of the balance before arrival.
This to avoid we loose beds from not arriving guest.

We also operate a "give us a hand for your bed" dorm with up to four beds for people willing to do exactly that. jobs range from giving the kitchen a clean, turning on lights, cuddling Margarita the hostel dog when she´s in, painting murals or just painting, playing some live music, general maintenance etc etc. We are open to hear what you can contribute to the home.

This is a laid back, comfy, social home. If that's for you are looking for then we look forward to meeting you.

No breakfast offered as of 1/4/18.
