"staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was very good considering the price for accommodation. There were several chill out areas, and they had activities on offer everyday if you wanted.…"

Liked: This hostel is by far the best hostel I stayed at during my trip in Argentina. Nice building, great garden with roofterrace, really clean bathrooms, great BBQ night, nice breakfast, Anna the receptionist is really really nice and helpful, lots of things going on like wine tasting and empanada cooking class (both free!!), free glass of wine every night. The hostel is also a really good place to meet other people. And when I stayed there, they even had a promotion of a free night when you book 3 nights! Really, really nice place.

Disliked: Just one minor thing; they advertise with free basic Spanish lessons, but they don't offer these lessons anymore.

Liked: One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The staff is fantastic, location is great, the breakfast was unbelievable and you get great value for your money. The generous free glass of wine every day is nice and there are daily activities that are interesting. I could easily have stayed an extra few days and it is a great place to chill out, meet travellers and explore Mendoza.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Superb staff and loads of great freebies each day - glass of wine, fast internet, 15 min free international call, great breakfast and evening activities like wine tasting and a mate class. In addition to this there was a really good vibe in the hostel with like-minded travellers but none of the negatives of ´party hostels´.

Liked: This is a fantastic hostel with great breakfast and of course the free glass of good quality wine! The patio and roof terrace will be great in summer, and the activities they hold are good value for money.

Disliked: For some the location may be a bit far from the centre, but its only a 10-15 minute walk. Only 5 bathrooms , but only had to wait once and the hostel was full!

Computers were fast with skype facilities. Loved the discount offered on National buses. Thanks for a great stay.

Disliked: Location is slightly out of the way but it only takes 10mins to walk into the centre.

Liked: The buildings were very clean, modern and attractive. There were a lot of activities and excursions on offer. Excellent breakfast.

Disliked: Of the 3 staff members I spoke to, only one spoke English. The mattress on my bed (Room 12, lower bunk if the staff read these comments) was so old and compressed that I could feel the wooden beams through it - it was very uncomfortable to sleep on

Liked: Fantastic atmostphere, great sociable events to join in with if you wanted to, reliable wifi, friendly staff, great roof terrace, washing facilities, free phone, and of course free wine in the evening.

Disliked: It would have been helpful to have been walked around the hostel fully - I didn´t discover a number of the bathrooms until the end of my four day stay. There showers weren´t that great, and there generally wasn´t enough of them. It didn´t affect my stay however. When the dorm rooms are full the room gets very hot and the beds are pretty tired!

Liked: Amazing. helpful & friendly staff, big brekky every morning with eggs. pancakes & fresh bread among other things, comfortable rooms and lots of space to hang out and relax when you're not out exploring town. Also the activities and general relaxed and social nature of the hostel. We met so many nice people & saw so much in and around Mendoza thanks to the directions & suggestions from Manuela & Anna. So great! Also, you can do your own washing for free & there is a great supermarket and the central market very close by.

Disliked: A couple of the showers downstairs near our dorms had very average water pressure. But that is the ONLY thing... everything else was great.

Liked: Really nice staff, they help you with everything you might need! When you¨re travelling alone, it¨s perfect, cause they organise for exemple free cooking classes for Empanada preparation and in general it¨s a great atmosphere.
