Good location, good price for our double room, showers weren't the best and had to go down stairs which was annoying. It is a really fun and friendly hostel. The free wine hour forces everyone to make friends, and the staff treat you like family. It is a little dirty and loud but it is a hostel. Stay here if... More

We stayed there for three nights. The service is excellent. Claudia makes awesome crepes for breakfast. Also the patio with the grill and free wine evenings give the place a great atmosphere and make for an excellent place to meet the other guests. Wifi is horribly slow. The only problem we had was with the tours we hired. The owner... More

I stayed there with my boyfriend for a week and loved every second! First of all - the location is great, just on the main plaza. Second of all - the beds are good, great kitchen, wonderful back yard, delicious breakfast (pancakes!) and FREE wine every night! The atmosphere was awsome, alot of young people from all around the world.... More

This hostel was one of the best I stayed in in South America. It feels like a big old house with wooden interior and very spacious. There is a magnificent outside terrace where one can sip on free wine every evening under grape vines. One night was spent with some guys and the owner drinking wine and eating cake. There... More

Hostel Independencia has a prime location and nice friendly staff. Enjoy the mean breakfast which includes pancakes. Don't stay there during December though - there is no air conditioning at all and hardly any fans. Wireless is available in the common areas but not in the rooms (which are too hot anyway).

this hostel thrives off its central location to the touristy area of mendoza. i opted to stay here one night because of that and wished i had looked for another location. there is not air conditioning in the whole building, which i think it lists as an amenity on hostelworld, and the room had one fan but it made no...

This hostel is so great!!! The breakfast is exceptional, and the staff (especially the kitchen staff!) is so nice. Highly recommend it! Very close to the main plaza, and walking distance to the bus terminal. No complaints!

A 15 minute walk from the bus station and on the corner of the main plaza, the location is perfect. The staff are really friendly and very helpful, and the breakfast in the morning is excellent (freshly made pancakes, fruit, cereal etc). The staff are happy to recommend DIY wine cycle tours, a nice change from trying to sell their... More

This hostel is in a really good location, just off the main plaza. Pancakes for breakfast plus free wine from 7-8 make this an excellent friendly hostel, the free wine hour is really good for meeting people. Good kitchen facilities & the woman who makes the pancakes is so nice! Helpful English speaking staff too!

The hostel is a few meters close to the main square so you can easily get to the center by walking. They serve a very good breakfast. I booked a double room at ground floor. It was small and old. The bed was comfortable although I could not had a good sleep due to the noise coming from the living... More
