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.

... Europe! Here we bought one bottle of sparkling wine for our New Years Eve in Mendoza. In the afternoon we went for the more exclusive wine yards in Valle de Uco. Here you have really big wine producers. On the way we brought a visit to Manzano Historico in Tunuyan and we saw Cristo Rey del Valle in Tupungato. During this drive we had an awesome view on the mountains and some had still snow capped peaks and we saw a Caminos de Altamira (kind ...
... had lunch at as well, and to have one of the best steaks I've had in my life plus trying 4 incredible red wines all came to about 6 or 7 quid, just amazing! We managed to squeeze in 3 wineries and even a specialty craft beer place at the end so all in all good day, not sure if the wine made the cycling easier or harder though! The next morning we'd signed up for white water rafting in one of the local rivers, it was an early start and that day the weather decided it had had enough of mid ...
