Property Description

*We Don't Have 24Hour Reception*
*Under new ownership and reopen after extensive renovations*
Hostel Lao is a laid back home away from home. We have 7 unique rooms set around spacious communal areas and our beautiful garden. We try to make the place feel like a relaxed intimate home with a friendly chilled social vibe. So you feel like you are staying with friends. Mates who give the best local info for everything from hiking to wine tours, food to buses and plenty more.

We are located in a busy corner of downtown Mendoza. Central plaza and bus station are just 10 minutes on foot. Public buses to the wine regions leave from opposite the front door. There are all kinds of grocery shops, cafes, restos, bars and much more close by.

We aim to be honest, sustainable, clean, independent, give the best possible service and rooms for a moderate price and maintain our sense of humour.

SUPER IMPORTANT. We do not have 24 hour reception. You need door codes etc before arrival. Check your emails so we can make your arrival as smooth as possible.

Fabulous

Es un sitio agradable con una terraza muy linda donde compartir con viajeros. La chica que nos atendió, excelente, nos dio opción a comprar buenísimos vinos en el mismo hostel. La cocina limpia y bien equipada. A pesar de eso, nos vamos con la sensación que hay algunos detalles importantes que no se cuidan (p. ej, la habitación no estaba limpia cuando llegamos, no había papel en el wc) que no nos permite darle na calificación que quizás podría tener un espacio tan privilegiado com este.

I was hesitant to write this review, but I feel like it needs to be said. Hostel Lao was a very poor experience. I arrived to find both our shower and toilet broken, and to a room that smelled like mold and mildew with a stained mattress. I had to ask twice for sheets, and was given a couple ratty sheets that didn’t even fit the mattress. The shower in the other room was working, but didn’t have a shower curtain, causing water to spray everywhere and soak the floor. Dogs were barking both evenings, keeping me up. When I went to check out at the scheduled time, nobody was even working. I had to call the owner, and was told that I was “being a little demanding” by expecting to pay him on time and expecting SOMEONE to be working. Seriously? What a joke. Anyone who writes a negative review is also attacked on here, as evidenced on Hostelworld. Maybe if you actually worked and showed up and had a staff and took your hostel seriously, people wouldn’t write honest reviews complaining. Don’t stay here.
