Damajuana was by far the cheapest hostel I found online, and considering the price there really isn't much to complain about. I arrived at 9 in the morning, and even though I couldn't check in yet, the girl at the reception was really helpful in having me fill out all the necessary paperwork, store my bags and even book me...

Sorry to be so negative. I'm not usually so negative about a place but after staying in lots of hostels in my time this one is definately bottom.of the list. I arrived to the most unhelpful and uninterested girl who told me there was nothing to do because it was a Sunday, which I later found out I could have... More

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

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.
