I was there for the Vendimia. I don't know how I can thank the staff at Hostel Lao. They were very patient with me and helped me greatly despite the language barrier. They were great in helping me find my way despite being lost in Mendoza, speaking to my taxi driver on the phone. The hostel is fairly central, the... More

Beautiful homely hotel with a lovely garden, perfect for sipping Mendozan vino tinto... Great kitchen, good breakfast included (really yummy cold porridge pot). Really helpful staff - can organise cyclee tours/winery lunches (a must!). Clean, spacious and well run. Loved it!

We had s private room with bathroom (room tango). We loved the decoration of the room! The bathroom and room were very clean. Only downside was the noise from the street. The hostel was very clean and well maintained, the commun areas were great. The garden was beautifull, even through the pool mooier more appealing in the pictures. Breakfast was... More

One day we went walking near lake portrerillos and it was great! The staff is very nice and the owners aswell, they helped me with getting my bicycle... More

We showed up during a holiday weekend without reservations and they had a room for us for 2 of the four nights we wanted to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff, English speaking as well. Reasonable rates, nice atmosphere, would definitely recommend and would absolutely stay here again.

The staff were really helpful, and helped us to book to tours and gave good restaurant recommendations. The location is pretty central, and only a short walk to the main plazas (approximately 8-10 mins). This hostel has good communal areas, although there was no wifi in the rooms. Breakfast was nice, but fairly basic - the best bit was the... More

The best thing about this hostel is the staff. Very friendly and helpful. Francisco in particular was lovely and gave us loads of recommendations for things to do in Mendoza. We stayed in the private double en suite which was great! Large room, good bed, large clean bathroom. Good quality sleep. The common areas are also very nice and relaxed,... More

I was recommended by various travellers to stay at Hostel Lao when passing through Mendoza and my stay there was absolutely fantastic. Relaxed environment, spotlessly clean and secure, only a short stroll from the centre of town, it was the perfect place to chill out for a few days between wine tours! The staff there were all helpful, attentive and... More

We ended up in Mendoza on a long weekend with nowhere to stay, everywhere was booked. The owners were very helpful, called around trying to find us a place in town and offered us a place in another property out of town. The breakfast was nice and the rooms were satisfactory. Cons- doors and locks upstairs are very old and... More
