Room dirty, bed sheets ripped off, bin not emptied, bathroom very dirty. Bread for breakfast moldy and cutlery dirty ( did I say dirty again?) We read the bad reviews before we booked thinking that the price was good and we stayed in worst place but no, this must have been one of the worst and most unloved hostel we... More

This hostel is really nice and the staff were very friendly. It is in a great location close to a lot of good restaurants and short walk to this big park and downtown area. My only complaint is our room was right next to the Pool Table and even with my ear plugs the noise was loud; and most of... More

We found a bargain on hostel world for the dorm (10 pesos/night!!), so for the price we couldn't complain about anything. Good things: Hot water, quiet dorms, free breakfast (toast, jam, coffee, juice), swimming pool but not in use in winter, kitchenette was average, walking distance from main centre and bus station, beds comfy. Improvements: the guy on the front... More

Staff fairly lazy and unprofessional, feels like they reuse the bed linens. Didn't have hot water at night. Wouldn't recommend this hostel for staying in Mendoza. It does have a pool and a decent rest jarrah attaches though which is a couple of redeeming factors.

I stayed here 5 nights and my experience was all around very good! The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the owner. The hostel has free breakfast, a large backyard area, a pool and a pool table! Also the hostel is in a perfect location in the center of town next to all the good restaurants and bars. They offer...

Horrible place without atmosphere, stayed as couple with friends. Doorm was actually better looking than the dobble which had broken floor and cracking walls, cigaret burns in the blanket(felt like a prison) Garden was nice looking, breakfast ok basic.. Receptionist started playing Queen on highest volume at 8am waking up everybody. So expensive for what u get..

We arrived randomly at the hostel on a Saturday afternoon, without looking it up. The entrance seemed clean and nice, the guy at the front desk was also nice, and the price was cheap, so we decided to stay without checking the rest of the hostel first. We stayed in an 8 room dorm - not very clean, very old,... More

Great café attached to hostel with great free breakfast. Pool and outdoor common area is nice! Ping pong table is fun. Nice upper balcony too. Great location. I do however wish that the receptionists were more helpful with reservations and plans, I didn't realize it at the time but I've been too many other hostels that were much more accommodating...
