“Just not up to standard”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We arrived around 5pm to find out they had given our reservation away (without telling us)!

Meaning we had to go into a dorm. This would have been fine but the dorm was pretty awful - there was one fan in the far corner meaning one person slept well but everyone else was too hot. The room was also full of mosquitos (a personal hate) and there was no protection i.e. netting over the windows or beds.

The breakfast was a piece of bread and cold coffee (no butter or even jam). The next night we moved to a private room which was okay. We had to pay extra for AC and in the flat roof style build with 35+ heat means it was still really hot. The next morning we did get butter with our bread…

Also we had to put all the bedding on ourselves and wash up (This is fine for us when we camp etc but when paying we expect it to be done)

The owner is a nice guy and the pool is cool. But overall it was just wasn't even average.

Room Tip: Try getting a room without a flat roof in the summer months.

We might have had a better time at the hostal had there been other travelers there, and therefore, more atmosphere. The hostal felt empty. Actually, nobody was there when we arrived, the doors were locked and we could not get in (8 am as per our reservation). A guest ended up opening the door for us after 20-30 minutes.

After this unfortunate start, things got a lot better. The staff was very friendly and as helpful as possible.

A wind storm a few days earlier had knocked down the phone line and we had no internet access, which was a bit of a pain.

The hostel was located quite far from the best areas of Mendoza (perhaps 20-min if you walk fast and if the sidewalk is not too crowded).

They served nice yummy croissants for breakfast with tea or coffee (with powdered milk - you might want to get your own liquid milk).

Again though, the staff was so nice that they made up for some of these issues. I would not stay there again though - mostly because of the location.

Arriving late, Simon gave me his mobile number so he would be there when we arrived; space out front for your car. Room was spacious, enough space for luggage, WiFi lasts into rooms and is fast enough. Bathrooms spacious and clean, breakfast good (more supplies were to be found in the fridge). Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms out back, although we didnt have trouble sleeping facing the road
