“Not worth it!”
Reviewed August 27, 2010

I visited Punto Urbano in August 2010 and was planning to stay for 3 days but only stayed for one day. The hostel has a good location but the same cannot be said of the rooms. The rooms are very small with bathrooms down the corridor. The first room offered to us was right at the entrance of the corridor and the host insisted we wouldn't be troubled by the noise but I couldn't sleep a wink. We then changed rooms but the second room had no TV and the bathroom was not connected which I don't mind. However, the corridor lights did not work and the hotel was very dark so I had to walk to the bathroom in complete darkness and grope in the dark to find the keyhole to the bathroom door. The breakfast was very bad with stale croissants and coffee. Also, there is no wi-fi in the rooms despite what the host says.

Reviewed February 4, 2010

We stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in october 2009. The room was clean and comfortable and the hostel is centrally located and close to many bars and restaurants. There was a garden at the back of the building that guests could use and a communal kitchen although we did not use this as there are so many good restaurants in Mendoza. There was free internet available 24hrs and breaskfast of pastries and tea/coffee was included in the cost of the room. What really made this place stand out for us was the hospitality of the owners who were really friendly and helpful (and Lucky, the dog). We also booked the Alta Montana trip through the hostel which was great. We had delicious meals in La Barra, Anna Bistro, Tasca la plaza, and the excellent Azafran.
