Spent two nights here after transferring from another hostel in Mendoza. Great location with lots of restaurants / bars nearby - a supermarket just up the street for cheap food / drinks. The best part was definitely the large common area and outside are with a great swimming pool. Rooms were variable - our first in the basement are felt... More

I was here years ago and loved it! Close to spectacular restaurants, and excursions to all the sites that make Mendoza special. The courtyard has a tendency to suck people in to never let them out again. I managed to escape on time :-)

From the moment we arrived it just didn't feel right, whilst the guy in reception was friendly, they were eager to get our money immediately, and despite having paid for our first night, and having explained we needed to exchange money they kept hounding us for full payment every time we passed reception. On top of that, the general ambiance... More

I actually stayed on two separate occasions during june/july. The staff were very polite and helped us get a great sip-lining, water-rafting expedition. Guest are almost 100% young travelers/backpackers, so it may not be the best place for people looking for a "comfy sleep". Overall i recommended and will stay again on my south american trail.

Hostel is located in the heart of the nightclub strip. Staff was friendly and bathrooms were clean. Back courtyard is great for chilling on the grass during the day. Don't expect to get a lot of sleep here, but we met a lot of really nice peeps from all over Argentina.

This a brilliant hostel for people who either don't need or want sleep, or anybody that enjoys spending prolonged periods in the dark. On offer is a 4 bed cave, complete with an extractor fan to the beer store for the bar above, in place of any windows. If that's not your cup of tea then why not try the... More

The hostel is in a great area (restaurants and bars everywhere outside your front door) and the supermarket is about 10 minutes walk away. - There is a gym a few doors away from the hostel with a day pass for 50 pesos - There is a meat shop over the road with good prices and also has wood for...

Recommended place! Nice rooms, very nice garden with a nice pool, and very nice staff. The hostel is located just in the middle of the restaurant-area with a fantastic variety of bars places to eat and enjoy. However, the hot water was more or less absent.

Damajuana is the place to be if you're in for meeting new people. It's located on a mainstreet full of bars and restaurants (it has its own downstairs, which make it a bit noisy). I spend pretty nice time there, very convenient location and reasonable price! There I met a person whose advises were extremely helpful when I was in... More

Hot water and good wifi, friendly staff who helped with tours (I did bikes and wine, had a great time!), and good location on street with lots of restaurants and bars and within walking distance of the centre. The barbecue on the Friday night was also a nice way to meet other people in the hostel. BUT I could not... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Really glad to know you enjoyed our bbq, tours and the hostel atmosphere in general. Our apologies for the noise at night - We reckon being located right where the party goes on (and on!) may sometimes affect our guests' sleep at night! However, it seems to be you managed... More
