Punto Urbano is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. It is in a great area, it's very clean, it's open, and the staff is very helpful. The hostel had so many activities to offer (a lot of them free!). It has a great atmosphere for being social. I booked my tours with them as well.
That being said, it was VERY hot in the rooms. I was in the 8 person dorm and it didn't feel like any air was flowing. The street outside was also loud, but we had to keep the doors out to the patio for more air. I think the private rooms are a better deal.

We have been traveling by bus and it seems when we leave one place to another there are many houses in between that you would look at and call shanty houses/slums. We know how ...
... the vines was a highlight. Lesson of the day: never leave a draw-string bag in the basket of a bike whilst navigating with a poor map (nothing of value lost). After a final wobbly cycle to return the bikes, Mr Hugo rewarded us with a complimentary bottle of his best unlabelled vino tinto. We probably didn't need to sample it on the bus home...
Needless to say the following day was uneventful as we recuperated and waited for the night bus to Cordoba, 10 hours.
... and they deal with it immediately getting everything fixed, they then give me a bottle of wine for the inconvenience. Fab! I then head out to to have a wander around the city and get some food. Mendoza is a lovely city with tree lined avenues and small plazas and parks dotted around. I find the recommend parilla to have some a very late lunch then wander a bit more before getting supplies from the supermarket. When I get back to the hostel I decide to book a ...
