Traveling from Valparaiso on a holiday weekend everywhere central was booked. We made an emergency booking at Punto Urbano for 3 nights from 1 November with some trepidation.
We arrived late after delays on the Valparaiso bus. We had the normal problems our Spanish is poor and the staff spoke little English; However we were greeted warmly and showed to our double garden room overlooking a large area with built in barbeque pit.
Room was clean, bed comfortable only problem was the light was rather dim. Thought it was great value for the amount we paid.
Breakfast standard continental served in separate breakfast room.
The Hostal is located 15 minutes walk from the main square but the local area has lots of eating and drinking places.
We needed some help with local information and the staff could not have been more helpful with this and calling taxis.
I note someone who stayed there just after us has said the place was a "SHole". I'm amazed it was a well priced, well located clean hostal. What did they expect 5 star luxery?
I'd recommend Punto Urbano to anyone who needed a budget place to stay in Mendoza.
