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.

... lots of the grapes from the vines :-) we also learnt lots about how the wines are made on the tour of their factories. Interestingly the winery owners have a habit of providing the wine to their daughters wedding - a minimum of 5000 bottles!!! The best bit of the day though was probably the olive oil factory - you could tell nobody was that interested in how it's made - we were all just waiting to devour the plates of bread ...
... dollari in Argentina, ci coccoliamo il nostro gruzzolo e ci divertiamo a guardare i prezzi dei negozi e dei ristoranti con il nostro nuovo tasso di cambio in mente. Improvvisamente questo Paese non è più carissimo come eravamo ormai abituati da qualche settimana, ma diventa abbordabile e in alcuni casi anche economico.
Darci al crimine non è l'unica cosa che abbiamo fatto qui a Mendoza. Cos'altro c'è? Oltre a un caldo infernale che ti toglie il respiro e ...
