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...

I'm a trooper, so i can stay in filthy hostels and still have a good time. This hostel was a bit on the dirty side, our room was full of bugs and seemed that the cleaning lady hasn't been doing her job very well, but for the price was not a problem for me. I do have to complain about... More
