This hostel has a tranquilo atmosphere among guests and is not a party hostel. With space inside and out to read or surf the internet on their reliable wifi, it is spacious and quiet. It lacks comfy furniture to curl up but tables and chairs abound in the large dining rom and back patio surrounded by gardens. The wifi reaches... More

Chimbas excels in cleanliness, number of bathrooms, quiet space, huge kitchen; it's a charming home turned into hostel and the space is comfortable. The refrigerator is quite small and difficult for storing food. It is difficult to locate staff for help, especially for opening the gate to let guests in and out. The major downside is the customer service. Aside... More

Had a lovely stay here in a double room w/ shared bathroom - but bathrooms were always free and spotlessly clean. Everyone here is lovely and so helpful and welcoming. There is a huge kitchen diner and the place is warm and homely. Location is outside of town, but lots of buses in or its a short walk. Being near... More

We had a really comfortable stay at Chimbas. The guys running the show are really helpful and attentative. The house is beautiful and cleaned regularly throughout the day. Ideally situated next to the bus station and a 10 minute bus ride to the central district. You can book all sorts of trips from the hostel which are reasonably price. We... More

My husband and I spent a week here relaxing after travelling extensively through South America. It’s a lovely place with a great kitchen and dining room area – it’s not a party hostel. Our room was clean, had a decent fan and the shower was hot. Although the toilet bin wasn’t changed daily as stated. Wifi is accessible everywhere including... More

The perfect hostel if you're looking for a nice private room (there are no dorms). It is a little outside the city centre but still walking distance and there is a busstop nearby. The kitched was great, and they have a nice garden with a swimming pool. The owners were very friendly and you can book nice excursions at the... More

We stayed her one night on our way from Valpo to Buenos Aires. Very nice room, beautiful backyard, well equipped kitchen and a very helpful staff. It's just next to the bus station, and a 20min walk or a 15 pesos taxi ride from the city centre. Breakfast is very simple. Be aware of mosquitos :( But we really enjoyed... More

Chimbas is worlds apart from other hostels in Mendoza. We moved here after spending a horrible few nights in a dirty, ill-equipped hostel nearby and were after something clean and a bit different. As soon as we walked into Chimbas we knew we wanted to stay, It is cared for like a family home, with a lovely communal area, beautiful... More
