Clean, comfortable hostel close to the centre and plazas. We had a private room and bathroom, the bathroom was very tight but at least there was hot water. Big comfy bed but it was cold, not obviously the fault of the hostel. The wifi only worked in the common areas and these were busy in the morning and evening. Generally... More

Alamo is conveniently located near the main plaza and park. Excellent clean facilities and good consistent WiFi. Kitchen is small and lacking some basics and cannot be used until 11am as staff are making breakfast and then cleaning. Showers were limited causing some backups during morning and evening peak times. But, water was hot although pressure was lacking and shower... More

My partner was unfortunately unwell when we were in Mendoza, so we spent a lot of time around the hostel. It was clean, hostel staff assisted us in finding a local medical clinic with English speaking staff. Wish we got to see more of Mendoza, but this place definitely made our stay comfortable.

This hostel is great value! The staff are very friendly (mainly the man with the beard, the others are ok), the tours they organise are with great companies and good value, breakfast is nice with rolls, fruit, dulce de leche, fruit juice etc. The rooms are decent and are cleaned every day. I would change the shower curtains as they... More

Rocking up to Mendoza on a less than humble budget, we were pleasantly surprised by the price and what we payed for. As soon as you walk in the door, there is an immediately chilled atmosphere with a small but comfortable living room and awesome backyard perfect for socializing or simply taking it all in. The kitchen facilities are basic... More

Three couples all over 60 stayed in three adjacent rooms across the patio from the main hostel and they were very nice and we sat out on the patio every evening drinking malbec. Very helpful desk clerk found a english speaking doctor when one of our party ran a high fever. We have enjoyed our stay and breakfast was included.... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hostel (double standard) and found it a great place with very helpful staff for organising activities around Mendoza. The people staying at the hostel are quite international which I find interesting/a plus. Overall I was very happy and I think in summer this is even a better place to stay with the nice backyard....

All of the staff were friendly and helped us to arrange various day trips. They also gave us vouchers and good advice for visiting Maipu by bike. The double room we stayed in was clean and cosy, the communal areas in the hostel are warm and inviting, and they even have an affectionate cat that makes the place feel like... More

Arrived without a reservation and was able to see the rooms before we decided to stay. Friendly hosts, clean, and a comfortable and warm atmosphere. A well maintained hostel which offers a great selection of activities in Mendoza. Wish checkout wasn't at 10am, but otherwise it was perfect.

the hostel is very well situated and almos every place can be reached on foot; people at the reception give you complete information on tours (wineries, ...), places to see in the city. The hostel is situated in a very quiet place, no noise can be heard from the street :)
