A proper old school hostel where we give the best local info for everything from hiking, wine tours, food, buses and plenty more.

We aim to be honest, sustainable, clean, independant, give the best possible service and rooms for a moderate price and maintain our sense of humour.

    This is a really nice hostel. It definitely felt more like a home when I stayed here. The two dogs are lovely too. Also a perfect place to stay at as a solo traveler as it is really easy to meet new people die to the setup of the common areas. If you're lucky you also get to taste some delicious meals cooked by Mariana. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone going to Mendoza!

    Initially booking for 2 nights I ended up spending a whole week at the Lao Hostel. The 20 something beds in this remodeled house ensure a cosy coming-home feeling! The rooms are spacious and the beautiful garden is definitely a plus. But the true value of the hostel lies in it's incredible people. The staff as well as some of the more permanent residents made me feel 100% welcome. I absolutly loved the time I passed here and I would recommend the Hostel to anyone, especially solo travelers!

    Bij aankomst ging het niet helemaal goed. Er waren andere in onze kamer. Gebeld met de receptie, want er zit niemand vanaf de middag. We hadden blijkbaar een andere kamer, de mooiste van het hostel, la terazza, met eigen terras! Er is een grote keuken, genoeg chill plekken en een leuke binnentuin. De sfeer is heel relaxed. Ook personeel was erg aardig. Het hostel ligt vlakbij het busstation waardoor je makkelijk met de bus kan reizen.

    Michael and the dogs are amazing. He makes the place a home. I even were invited when staying with a family in Mendozo while doing a course. The hostel is close to downtown. The garden is very nice. I stayed for only one night, so didn’t get much of the atmosphere.

    Lovely hostel and great location. But the lack of staff on site was quite annoying at times and whatsapp messaged wouldn't always be answered. Nico organised a great asado and we absolutely loved it, just a shame there were some extremely drunk and rude guests that made us escape the party early. This a few nights in a row, different people. They were loud, sexist and also rude to the staff, if it was my hostel I would have kicked them out straight away. Not sure why it attracts these types..

    A basic hostel with two lovely dogs... I like dogs very much but not if they jump in beds and bark at night and in the morning. That's not my definition of 'clean beds' and a silent night... Anyway, there was a chill relaxarea and a shower with hot water. I would recommend it if they learn there dogs how to behave.
