Liked: It was like staying at a big home - easy to meet others and very relaxed atmosphere. Big family BBQs, free wine every night, free international calls, comfy beds.

Disliked: The showers were not great. Could do with some new shower heads in the bathrooms.

Liked: Really nice atmosphere with communal dinners at night to make it easy to meet people. I´d highly recommend signing up for the pizza party, best pizza I´ve had so far in Argentina!

Disliked: Not really enough bathrooms and placed at random locations around the hostel so you have to walk through the kitchen with your towel around you! More places to hang your clothes in the bathrooms would also be helpful.

Liked: We were in the 2 bed dorm, it's small but cosy and very quiet as noone sits in the garden during winter evenings. Might be a different story in summer. Free glass of wine each night is excellent, met some awesome people. Def recommed the 2 bed dorm for friends/couples that want privacy.

Liked: The breakfast is without doubt the BEST i have had all year in a hostel (Asia, Australia and South America) - lots of variety and plenty of food! It's a great place to chill with hammocks, sunloungers and lots of common spaces. I met some awesome people to go wine tasting with and all the staff are so helpful and keen to chat.

Disliked: The only thing I disliked was the beds - hard mattresses and lumpy pillows but this would not stop me from coming back as in every other respect it is a wonderful hostel!

Liked: Free wine! Along with laundry facilities, friendly and helpful staff. the room was ok but smelt musty and the mattress wasn´t great.

Disliked: Not enough bathrooms. Too loud in the evenings- we were next to the courtyard and could hear people until the early hours- not great if you need to get an early bus the next day.

Liked: The hostel was really clean and very social. The hostel put events on each night so it´s really easy to meet fellow travellers. The owners were really kind and helpful and helped us alot with info on getting to the vineyards. The hostel offers a free glass of wine each evening and a free small bottle when you check out. There´s a great roof terrace to enjoy the sun and free washing machine. This hostel is a fab place to stay, we originally booked 1 night but stayed for 3!

Liked: This hostel is one of the best hostels i have stayed in. The hostel is located a little way out the main centre- about 15peso's from the bus terminal , but the fact that it is a little way out makes it more secure. The hostel really focuses on the local wine and therefore is a great way to sample the local produce! This isn't a party hostel but has a great feel and character. They have a good breakfast of eggs, pancakes, toast (james etc), maize cereal and apples- standard really. The kitchen facilities are also good and are kitted out well- it is also close to the large supermarket..

Disliked: Nothing really, the matresses need to be replaced if anything....

Liked: This hostel was amazing! A really great place to meet people and relax over a bottle of wine. The two kitchens are really useful, and the asado night is not to be missed. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and let us stay the day while waiting for a bus. All in all, if you're going to Mendoza, this is the place to stay!

Disliked: Our private bathroom had a level floor; hence flooding when we took a shower.

Liked: It's a great hostel. Super-friendly and helpful staff, nice common areas, great little patio and sun terrace. Generous breakfast, including pancakes. Nice touches like the free glass of malbec daily (even if I ended up never having it!), free use of washing machine and lockers for luggage after check out.

Disliked: Could work a little on improving two of the four bathrooms - they're a bit more like "wetrooms" now and while perhaps it's hard to do much about the smallest one, the one on second floor should be better if just a shower curtain was added...
