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.

Romantic getaway

16 June 2011 Raquel would recommend this property

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.

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!
