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: Beautiful atmosphere, staff went out of their way to make you feel comfortable, to ensure you enjoyed yourself and Mendoza. A really great vibe. A great barbecue on the weekend, complimentary wine, good laughs and all round a great place. Stay here to meet fellow open minded fun travellers ((and staff).

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. The free glass of wine makes the 150% :-). Towels are free, that¨s great aswell! AND: It¨s REALLY tidy, they clean all the time...so respect the work they do for your comfort!

Disliked: The showers are a bit difficult to handle: some are nearly in the toilet...

Liked: Good location close to town. Can book tours directly from the hostel. Hostel organises group activities - wine tasting, BBQ, tapas, etc. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Disliked: Limited bathrooms...but not really an issue when you consider the price per night.

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.
