I had a great stay at Hostel Lao. It’s super chilled, with a cute garden and lovely doggos. It’s perfect for travellers wanting to meet likeminded people for fun stuff, and who are happy to chill out and enjoy Mendoza. The hostel whatsapp group is really great for tips and suggestions and all the staff were super helpful and kind. I’d recommend Lao to anyone!
