Hostel Mora in Mendoza is in a great location and the staff go out of their way to help you plan your activities and to make you feel at home. The hostel is an old home that is very cozy with a great rear garden with tables, chairs and hammocks for eating or relaxing. The dorm rooms are not crowed and the mattresses are new and firm. Plenty of hot water for showering and in the sink as well for shaving. They also allow free use of their washing machine. And the free breakfast with homemade pancakes is very nice. The hostel is very safe and secure and on a great street near most everything you need. It is also a short walk from the main bus terminal.
The reason I say this hostel could easily be so much better is that I found the property to be in disrepair. There is a lot of deferred maintenance at this hostel. The ceilings have peeling paint and water stains from leaks. There are broken hand railings, broken plugs, cracked tiles, rotted wood trim, broken light fixtures and broken lockers. All basic maintenance items that if repaired would make this a wonderful hostel. The second thing that needs attention is the rooms and the bathrooms need to be cleaned daily. I found the floors in the dorms, common areas and bathrooms to be quite dirty all day. So more attention by the cleaning crew would make a big difference here.
So in general I recommend this hostel in the hopes they address these issues.
