Peter Hammond thinks…

"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: Everything - possibly the best hostel we've stayed in during 2 months of travel. The room was comfortable, the communal areas and kitchen facilities were great. There is a different activity offered almost every night from wine tasting to an empanada cooking lesson. The location was good with a short walk to the main plaza and a big supermarket just down the road. Staff were really friendly and can help you organise loads of excursions. Wifi was quite good in the communal areas. Generally the place just has a really good feel to it.

Disliked: Nothing. A couple of the shared bathroom showers would sometimes dip in pressure or temperature but not a big problem.

Liked: Believe the hype - it really is that good, Anna on the desk is super super helpful and cheerful, it's spotlessly clean, a great place to meet people with lots of common space, free wine and daily organised activities. Free laundry, free international calls, free wine. Supermarket and ATM very close.

Disliked: The free wine is not always that nice, but it's free. The shower in the double ensuite room we had was designed by a first timer (flat floor = no drainage).

Liked: Hostel Empedrado is a great hostel. The owner, Eduardo, sure knows how to please his patrons. His staff is A+, a free glass of wine is served every night, the hostel is super clean thanks to an army of cleaners, activities are organized almost every night and finally, red wine is also given as a gift on the way out. It is a winning combination. Two slight negatives: the mattresses are not the most recent and need changing. The shower heads need to be replaced. All in all, a great hostel that delivers excellent value for the money.

Liked: The best hostel we've stayed in so far in 3 months of travel!! Great staff, clean rooms and great kitchens. Loads of areas to sit and chill out. Roof top terrace was great on the sunny days. They've got a washing machine you can use too. Booze was cheap to buy in the hostel but you could also bring your own in too. Free empanada cooking night on tuesdays!! Good info on doing tours but also info on going places on your own.Good location, close to awesome markets where theres cheap, tastey food. All in all, brilliant, wish all hostel were like this one!!

Disliked: One shower head wasnt working, but we told Anna on reception and she was getting it fixed asap.

Liked: Anna is INCREDIBLE! She is helpful, professional, funny, and seems to know everything about Mendoza. The hostel really has a home-y atmosphere, and the events make it easy to get to know people. Rooms are clean, common areas are spacious, and breakfast is great! (as is the free washing machine)

Disliked: Nothing. This hostel is not on a main street in Mendoza, but it's close enough to walk to everything and is on a quiet little side street.

Liked: Amazing hostel! Spacious and clean, great bathrooms with hot water, amazing breakfast spread (yummy pastries) which even provides raw eggs that you can cook yourself. Hostel staff were super friendly and always willing to help. Lots of activities on, the wine tasting night was fun and informative. Lots of great spaces to chill - TV room with loads of channels and a beautiful pool with hammocks. You have to stay here in Mendoza!

Disliked: Location was slightly outside the immediate centre, about 5-6 blocks from the centre. But it was a nice enough walk, and the further location also means it's quieter. Also could have used more bathrooms - sometimes we had to wait, though it was never for very long.

Liked: The staff is great at Empedrado. Special thanks to Manuela, who recommended a lovely restaurant for us, but Patricio and Eduardo are also awesome. They actyally have a free glass of wine everyday and, one day, they made this delicious beverage made of wine, rum and fruits. Also, the breakfast is a show apart: they have eggs that you can cook, bread, coissants, milk, coffee, cereals and they even made dulce de leche pancakes for us! I really recommend them for this!

Disliked: The room - a double one with bathroom ensuite - was very very tiny and the bathroom flooded when we showered. Besides, the mattress was a bit worn out. But that didn't make me like Empedrado less. The good points overcome the bad ones.

Liked: This hostel was the best hostel we have stayed in in South America. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was a great place to meet other people. They organise activities most nights such as dinners or cooking classes. It also has plenty of common rooms and the kitchen is really big. It feels more like a home than a hostel.

Disliked: The fact that it closed for renevations when we were there so we had to leave this fantastic hostel and find a different hostel in Mendoza which was not as god.
