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.

We tried the typical Argentinian spirit for the first (and probably last) time, Fernet. It tasted like dark thick liquor and mouth wash with coke as the mixer...yuck! With that we called it a night and were ...
... him it and he took his sweet time on the computer accepting it. I don’t know why some of these border agents have to be such jerks. They want visitors here so why don’t they treat us with some kind of respect? We were surprised that all the formalities took only a little more than half an hour.
I snatched us both a couple pieces of bread and a few slices of ham at our ...
... uncommon to see the same people (us included) who started at happy hour opening another bottle at 12am. A little alcohol also helps with everyone's ability to speak Spanglish, flowing through to Spanish, then by the last glass most likely gibberish. We have travelled to a few different places in Argentina now and the one thing that we keep encountering is not just the amazing food or wine, it's the genuine warmth and friendliness of the Argentinian people and it's by no means limited to ...
