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.

Beautiful Mendoza isn't that beautiful anymore if you wake up because the people in your room start to pack at 1 am. Even though they are not leaving the next day. Things in life you will never understand...
Another reason is to wake up to about 100 very itchy bites on your body.
The first night I thought ...
... enjoying tasting 5 toothsome tipples, which apart from the champers, was all really oaky stuff and not bad for 50 pesos. No nibbles to mop it up though free water and coffee to wash it down, so had to head off pronto in search of sustenance.
The next open and affordable place did olive oil, balsamic and tapenades mopped up with baskets of bread. Also sweet conserves, liqueurs ...
... seem such hospitable people that we find it difficult to believe that anyone would react in that manner but we certainly won't bring it up unless otherwise asked. We take a local bus an hour outside of the city to Alto Gracia, the town where Che Guevara grew up and his old house is now an interesting museum where we enjoy learning more about the revolutionary. I can't help but wonder whether some people realise what he got up to as they wear his face ...
