“Nice hostel with best breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Very nice hostel, clean and spacious, we stayed in room 10 which is very big, we heard other double rooms are very small, the showers are pretty bad, there is no pressure and it is very hot or cold, they are very clean same as the kitchen. The lounge area is nice the couches are a bit old and weird. The best part of the hostel is the breakfast what was one of the best I had so far, pancakes, omelets and nice bread rolls.

All by all very nice stay and I would definitely recommend this place.

Incredible vibe at this hostel, all the staff is super duper friendly and helpful, and the amenities are great. I would stay here for ages if I could, really makes you feel like you're at home. Happy hour free wine from 7-8 always gets the blood pumping!

This place was incredible. for the same price as any other hostel, the breakfast here includes pancakes, omelettes, boiled eggs, sweet pastries, orange slices, and all the rest of the things you'd expect. There's free wine for all who stay at the hostel every night from 7-8pm, and the place is kept very clean. the only minor negative is that it seems like bathrooms were an afterthought..they're very clean but quite small and in random places in the hostel. It's got an amazing outdoor terrace with swing seats and a barbecue and all in all it's just a really COOL place to be.

the people in it when we were there were all fellow travellers from europe, and our group tripled in size by the time we checked out. Anna at the reception is incredibly helpful, and their organized activities are well researched, well priced, and the staff are very enthusiastic.

You need to stay here. But book early because they are ALWAYS full.

I stayed here in late April and really enjoyed my stay. As a solo traveler, I really enjoyed the combination of activities (bbq was amazing) but also the ability to relax by yourself.
While there were a few pipe issues (because the building is older), the staff certainly made up for it. Common areas and bathrooms were all clean, hostel was secure, breakfast was awesome (loved the crepes!) and staff were so friendly and helpful. Washing machine was also a HUGE plus.

We only stayed 2 nights but wished we could have stayed longer. We arrived and were treated by Anna who was so friendly and helpful. Right from when we walked in we felt at home. The place is really spacious, although the bathrooms are a little dinky. Breakfast was amazing and Claudia makes the best crepes and omelettes. They have loads of tours and activities on offer, we did the empanada course which was great fun and value for money. A great spot to meet people and to enjoy the town of Mendoza.

Had a grea time here, most of the staff were friendly, they have a TV room, sun lounge, washing machine for you to use free, they have activities like a barbeque and overall it was a good place. They did however not put sheets on several beds, not change them, they had water tank problems as well and not all the showers were good. Breakfast is pretty amazing though. I did like the shelves with sockets they put there for each bed, makes sleeping on the top bunk much better.

We were in Mendoza for a week and stayed here. The staff was perfect - they set you up with any tours that you want to do and can help you get anywhere you need to go. The hostel has different events set up each night including Empanada and Wine Tasting classes for either very cheap or free. They also have free wine that they give out every night at 6pm. The beds weren't my favorite and the showers are either very hot or very cold - but i you've been in South America for a while, you're already used to that!

The hostel was a great price for dorms and it's located close enough to the center or anywhere you'd like to walk in the city. One of my favorite hostels in Argentina!
