“Mixed Feelings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

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.

Great hostel.. the family owners are so friendly and really try to help as much as they can. The place is clean, very quiet and relaxing. Good kitchen facilities to cook some meals with a supermarket 1min away. Nice area.. good stoll down to the main city area. Great base if your doing winery tours. Speaking of which make sure you do the winery bike tour!! This hostel can book for you and its cheaper than going through a travel agency, its $120AR or $250AR depending on level but such an amazing day either way! The breakfast is good too! The English here is pretty poor so be ready for a few tough conversation if your Espanol is weak like mine :S and the rooms get rather hot and air con is extra $6 but a fan is free. Apart from that great place

Room Tip: Upstairs double was nice. But got very hot.. Id probably pay the $30AR to get the air con. The fan d...

The owner of this hostel, Gus, is a gem. He truly does everything he can to make you feel welcome and looks after you really well. This more than made up for the location of the hostel on a busy and noisy corner. He is at his desk when you wake up and is there when you get home, what a worker, this also means that security is great. The hostel was clean and the facilities were good. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at this hostel and felt like we were saying goodbye to a friend when we left Gus.

Room Tip: The double room with a private room can be a bit noisy. Best bet is to pick the double room upstairs...
