TravelPod Member ReviewsPunto Urbano Mendoza
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.

... whichever wineries you wanted, just gives you that bit more freedom and relaxed time wise. Me and Alex got a little carried away when we got to the bike rental shop as we saw they had a tandem bike out front... We'd both never been on one before so decided why not try it! Theyre kinda weird to get used to at first, almost feels riding a bike through treacle and turning is hard to get used to but we managed it eventually and visited some incredible vineyards and wineries - the first ...
Parque San Martin takes up a huge amount of space in the tourist map and I'm wondering if it's really that big. Maybe the city is small or maybe the map is not drawn to scale. We decided to take the bus there instead to save our energy for the walk within the park. Bus no. 5 just outside the hostel takes us straight to the park entrance. We boarded the bus and wanted to pay in cash but realise that the bus only accepts bus card that had to be ...
