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.

These boys and girls deserve big tips and I am hoping we can get ...
... to tents with garden sofas in them, and ate next to fields of giant tomatoes. My time in Mendoza was largely marked by a full belly, a delightful feeling of ongoing low-level inebriation, and the feeling of basking in the sun, like a fat and happy lizard. Definitely a lifestyle to which I could very quickly become accustomed. With over 1000 wineries in the area, each producing several lines, I have my work cut out for me if I want to taste them all. Challenge ...
... hockey teams staying in our hotel. In other words, we are surrounded by tall, fit, hot, young girls. I, Amber, believe Jerry planned this :) Mendoza appears to be a very cute, tourist town that has still managed to embrace its culture. Wine is super cheap. It's friggin' hot here. We've said it before but repeat it for emphasis. This town loves its outdoor patios/eating spaces. It has embraced the importance of good food that is well prepared and varied. For that, we love this ...
