“Wonderfull stay at the Mendoza Lodging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Mendoza lodging is located in downtown Mendoza on its main street facing the Alameda ( a very wide sidewalk with many large strrets ) .The facilities are great with five bathrooms , a yard in the patio , laudry service , continental breakfast , and great metal lockers . The staff spoke English and was very knowledgeabl about the city aand what it has to offer . I have really fall in love with Mendoza and this great hostel .

Room Tip: I suggest getting a shared room , since th price and service level was excellent and the opportunity...

We booked this hostel because of the good reviews on hostelbookers and tripadvisor, but this was the worst hostel we've ever stayed at. Unfortunately we couldn't leave right away, but we managed to book another - great! - hostel around the corner for our other nights in Mendoza.

The worst thing about the hostel was our room. It was smelly, very very tiny and dirty. There was no proper linnen (it just wouldn't fit), so we just slept on the dirty mattress. Also there's no proper common / living room, the breakfast room looked like a storage room for old mattresses and furniture, the breakfast itself was just some cereal and tea, the kitchen is not well-equipped, there's only one (!) shower (and two toilets) for the whole hostel, the shower is very dirty and last: the staff was unfriendly and didn't speak English.

In short: don't go here! There are better places to stay in Mendoza, for almost the same price. We weren't the only guests who were leaving for these better places after one night in Mendoza Lodging.

After staying here for 4 nights, I have mixed feelings about this place. The location was great, and it was a good value considering we had a private room (double and twin bed) and ensuite bathroom for a little over $40USD/night.

BIG downside - the owner(?), Gustavo, smokes in the lobby. Our room was directly off the lobby, so needless to say we smelled the smoke all day/night long and after awhile our belongings began to smell as well. Otherwise, Gustavo is very friendly and helpful.

I guess beware booking the ensuite room, as I believe it's the only room on the 1st floor. We had a window right over the sidewalk, which was a little annoying because we could hear people outside talking and traffic constantly - not a huge deal, but something to mention in case you mind noise.

We didn't wander upstairs to the kitchen so I can't comment on that, and I don't know if anyone smokes up there as well.

Overall, I'd stay elsewhere next time. The room and bathroom were clean, but I can't stand stale smoke indoors.

I felt very welcomed by the hostel manager Gustavo who was really helpful with directions and advice! Along with other hostel staff they were all very welcoming and friendly and up for a chat, I stayed in other hostels in mendoza however hostel lodging was by far the best.
Thank you HLM

Our weekend in Mendoza was super relaxed and fun, thanks to the nice people at Hostel Mendoza Lodging and clean space to sleep! They were very accommodating and we happened to be the only group staying this weekend, which was a holiday weekend in the offseason. The Internet was fast and the breakfast food was delicious and abundant. The only issue I had was that I booked our 8 beds ahead of time online through a hostel booking company and had to pay 10% down in US dollars on my credit card, then we could pay the rest in pesos when we got there...the lady at the desk did not understand that I paid the deposit in dollars and thought it was in pesos, so she only gave us the peso amount off, pretty much making me pay double for my bed. I recommend just showing up and getting a bed. They don't fill up that fast anyways and you avoid and language barriers and confusion.
