Host staff doesn't have a passion to serve. Probably he is one of an owner of this hostel. So, it is better not to stay here. He is really rude when saying something. Breakfast starts from 9AM. So, it is too late to serve. Price is dubious. He probably said to me a different price from other guest of same... More

You should avoid this hostel. It's very old. The beds are old, the sheets are torn, the matresses should have been replaced years ago. The cushion was a cotton bag with flocks of mousse. Basic hygiene in the rooms is not ok. Also the reception area, breakfast area hadn't been cleaned for quite some time. This was the worst and... More

Went in May, so it was offseason and we were the only people there. The staff was very eager to make our stay pleasant though, even preparing an asado for us as we returned from a long day at Aconcagua. I would highly recommend the horseback tour (3 hr) to the mines although it's a bit pricey (like $40 i... More

Sometime, in the hostels you can get everything even what you dont need. In that one, you get just the main and most important stuff: a view as you were dreaming, a real backpackers (no fake ones), so many activities to do around and especially, a great welcoming from Alejandro and all the staff. I did hundred hostels around the... More

I read a few bad reviews about this hostel, so I was curious what will expect me. I arrived at midday and had a warm welcome. Alejandro checked me in and helped me with all information I needed.

The hostel is decent and you get what you can expect from a solid hostel. Dorms are not very spacious, water was allways warm and the kitchen wasn't very well equiped. Two things that bothered us: - Transportation to town is anoying. There exists only an expected arrival time in town that means that you have to wait at a... More

We had a really nice stay in this hostel. The surroundings are beautiful and the hostel has a good and relaxed vibe. It is about a 2 hour drive away from Mendoza and gives you an opportunity to be at a less touristy place. We celebrated Christmas eve at this place. It was awesome. The owner had prepared food for...

Best thing about this place is the location, you have the Andes at your doorstep! Superb view, no doubt about it- Unfortuantely the only good thing to say.

The second dinner I had here was very good, as was the breakfast. The first was decidedly average but overall I liked the place. It's 7 km from the town so a car is useful, buses only go by about 4 times a day.
