“Red, red wine at Mendoza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2010

This hostel is quite a hike (nearly half an hour) from the bus station but once you get there, it's in a nice quiet neighbourhood. The building is a bit shabby but clean enough. Its best asset is the organisation of events; they do "asado" on Tuesdays and Saturdays with plenty of local wine, outdoor trips to the nearby mountains, and daily visits to wineries and other local industries. Hence there are plenty of chances to mix with one's fellow guests and since Chile is so close, several of them come from there.

The Hostel Empedrado had a convenient location at the end of a quiet street. The breakfast room and courtyard were pleasant and spacious. Otherwise, it was only average - could have been cleaner, could have been friendlier. Our room was not cleaned, despite a note on the door outlining biweekly cleaning. There are better budget options in Mendoza.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2009

We came to this hostel on the recommendation of a traveler in Santiago, planning to stay 2 nights, but are reluctantly leaving after 5.
The atmosphere is very relaxed and pleasant, the staff are exceptional and the hostel is very clean.
The vine-covered patio is a great place to spend the afternoon/evening, sipping your daily free glass of wine and sharing the day´s adventures.
The owners host BBQ´s for only $30 a(r) and they´re delicious.
Last evening we had tango lessons, only for the cost of a tip.

If you want a nice quiet, pleasant relaxing place to stay, this is it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2009

we've been travelling for a month and this is probably the best hostel we stayed in. eduardo and the rest of the staff made us feel very comfortable in the hostel and treated us very well. they were informative and very nice. there were all kinds of treats here that you don't get anywhere else: they paid the taxi from the bus terminal, free use of the laundry machine and the wonderful free cup of wine every night. the rooms were clean and had heating and hot water all the time. excellent!
