It was late and without many options and we choose to stay in this hostel for the night after a few recommendations from the locals around the area. The place from outside looked very nice with the entrance from the side at the end. The fare was cheap and the rooms seemed okay. The problem clearly wasn't the place itself...

Room dirty, bed sheets ripped off, bin not emptied, bathroom very dirty. Bread for breakfast moldy and cutlery dirty ( did I say dirty again?) We read the bad reviews before we booked thinking that the price was good and we stayed in worst place but no, this must have been one of the worst and most unloved hostel we...

This hostel is really nice and the staff were very friendly. It is in a great location close to a lot of good restaurants and short walk to this big park and downtown area. My only complaint is our room was right next to the Pool Table and even with my ear plugs the noise was loud; and most of...

We found a bargain on hostel world for the dorm (10 pesos/night!!), so for the price we couldn't complain about anything. Good things: Hot water, quiet dorms, free breakfast (toast, jam, coffee, juice), swimming pool but not in use in winter, kitchenette was average, walking distance from main centre and bus station, beds comfy. Improvements: the guy on the front...

Staff fairly lazy and unprofessional, feels like they reuse the bed linens. Didn't have hot water at night. Wouldn't recommend this hostel for staying in Mendoza. It does have a pool and a decent rest jarrah attaches though which is a couple of redeeming factors.

The hostel has free breakfast, a large backyard area, a pool and a pool table! Also the hostel is in a perfect location in the center of town next to all the good restaurants and bars. They offer...

We arrived randomly at the hostel on a Saturday afternoon, without looking it up. The entrance seemed clean and nice, the guy at the front desk was also nice, and the price was cheap, so we decided to stay without checking the rest of the hostel first. We stayed in an 8 room dorm - not very clean, very old,...
