This hostel is located on a main street in Mendoza. Not particularly good or bad. I stayed in a shared dorm that did not have any place to lock our belongings. It did have a private bathroom. There was hot water after a few minutes. The shower curtain wasn't long enough, so the entire bathroom floor was soaked. The breakfast... More

Location is perfect in the center of the city, everything else is just average and I think we could have found a better hostel for the price we paid. Bathroom was old and furniture in general quite neglected. Breakfast was really bad even for a hostel.

This hostel has so much potential but has been neglected in terms of maintenance. The hostel is on a main road where the parade passes during vendimia, which was great for us as we had a room with a window on that side. Staff were friendly enough, especially as they changed our room to a small 2 bed as we... More

The hostel is positioned on the main street of Mendoza, Avenida San Martin. It is very central as it is close to the 5 main squares and the pedestrian area. The area around is very safe and it is no problem to walk there at night. The building the hostel is located in is a old, huge one. It has... More

We found this hostel to be very accomodating and very affordable. . Though our room, with a private bath, was simple, it very clean and neat. The hostel has an ideal downtown location and maintains good security for the safety of their guests. The staff proved to be friendly and were eager to help us. Would I go back there... More

It's one of the worst hostels I've ever been before. It's a shame of a place. The bed was broken in the middle, the mattress was very old. Humidity and bad odors all over. The only good thing about the hostel was leaving.

The worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Firstly we found half a dead mouse in the kitchen, then we discovered a used sanitary towel in the shower that remained there in spite of us telling staff. To top it off the owner aggressively entered our room drunk while we were sleeping at 3am and proceeded to make inappropriate remarks and... More

In the city center on a major street. If your in town for the February festival parades, this hostel has front row seats. As for the rest, well, its not from lack of trying, they creatively painted the walls of this old hotel. The lounge areas are decent, along with its roof top access. But its still a little musty...
