I don't even know where to start. The owners have clearly given up. How there are around 30 hostels lower ranks in Mendoza is impossible. Dirty would be an understatement - the sheets and bedding looked like they hadn't been changed in 30 years. 2 people in our room of 4 got bed bugs. 'Breakfast' was some crappy croissants, with...

This place doesn't even deserve 1 star. Unless you enjoy a bed bug infested dive, avoid this place at all costs. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night (May 6, 2016) with another couple. We stayed in a four person dorm. The entire hostel was dirty - but the sheets and pillowcases had clearly not been washed, had... More

By far the worst hostel I have seen so far! Not just is the place filthy, poorly kept and badly run down, it is also horribly infested with bed bugs. I had at least 300 bed bug bites! worse, I my luggage has been infected, and I am now going through pains of dealing with these monsters. I have fed... More

We stayed two nights and that was three nights too many. A last minute check in for us but we should have read the reviews first, we stayed in a private room for two and had two girls we met on a bus in the room next to us. The bed was so bad and disgustingly filthy. Unfortunately the beds... More

At the bus station we met a nice guy who told us to go to this hostel. When we arrived at the hostel they put us in a room with 5 dirty beds for the three of us. Everything in the room was dirty. The floor, the pillows, the shower, the toilet... But the worst thing was that one of... More

I visited Mendoza for Vendimia (the March celebration of the harvesting of the grapes). We reserved a room for two people and were given a room with four bunk beds. That was OK, but the mattresses were FILTHY, the sheets were just as dirty and the pillows were stained beyond belief. It gets worse. The rooms have no ventilation or... More
