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.

... the group, unfortunate but instead of rushing patagonia and having bad weather I can always come back and do it as a self contained trip in the future sometime. So I've basically adopted Ben and Marc's itinerary now, basically identical to mine except they're doing everything about 3 weeks before I was meant to, and they were planning to go to Colombia at the end of their trip (which we are literally sitting on the plane back from Colombia writing this now). Next stop, salta in Northern ...

Fri 18th July, I slept in and missed breakfast :( I spent the day sorting out a few important things (laundry) and booking my Machu Pichu trek for the 4th of Sept. I had left it too late ...
