Firstly, this hostel is fantastic for socialising and if that is what you need, stay here. They provide free wine in the evening and organise a BBQ for 100 Pesos a few times a week. It has a lovely courtyard and good breakfast. However, the accommodation needs some work - it's a bit run down. The showers and bathrooms need... More

Pros: The staff were extremely helpful - they went above and beyond for me. They have a lot of knowledge about things to do in Mendoza and the surrounding areas and will help you book tours. Centrally located. Great breakfast- staff cook eggs to order and pancakes and also have a breakfast bar. Nice atmosphere with a terrace, lounge and... More

this is a really nice hostel with a little terrace, good rooms and breakfeast with eggs and pancakes… The BBQ at the hostel was really fun and for 100 Pesos really pricy. The rooms are and bed's are in good shape. But what really make's the difference are the people working there. The stuff is really nice, friendly and cool.... More

This hostel is really well located, less than a block away from Mendoza's central square. There are restaurants and supermarkets within 5 minutes walk in most directions. The staff were really nice, reminding me several times that there is free wine from 7pm-9pm every night in the hostel. Rooms were comfortable, but really hot like the rest of Mendoza. Everybody...

Great location, close to Independencia park which is really nice to spend your siesta. Staff was friendly and even let us eat breakfast even though we just arrived in the morning. Beds were good and the hostel tends to be quiet around 12. Big lockers are provided and even bigger locks fit. The front door is locked and each entrant... More

We had a most enjoyable stay at the hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful and super keen to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They organise events and the BBQ was very successful. The breakfast is extensive not like Argentinian at all as the food kept coming. The hostel is very central, only 5 min walk into... More

I really enjoyed this place. It is a realy hostel, so you won't have the home-like feeling. But they invest a lot in activities and social cohesion. Every night they will organize something fun, like bbq's or drinking nights, so you can really meet the people in the hostel. The staff will also take you out if you want. The... More

This is a great hostel there's no doubt about it and we had a really enjoyable 2 day stay here. Here are some pros and cons from our experience: Pros: - The location just off Plaza independencia is literally perfect. - They give you as much free wine (Malbec) as you can drink from 8 to 10pm each night!!!! -...

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
