Good location and fun, but not great
This hostel has one major positive, a few neutrals and a few negatives. The biggest positive is the location. It is in the heart of the downtown area of Mendoza. Mind you, if you are thinking Mendoza is a sleepy, quaint town, think again! It is a busy, crowded small city of many shops and many people. I was shocked by the sheer lack of quaintness! I think of wine country and it is completely different than what this city actually is. (The real wine area is actually about 35 minutes away, via bus, and is called Maipu.) Anyhow, Hostel Suites Mendoza is in the center of town, and is right across the street from a grocery store, which is a good location. There is also easy access to the buses and from the hostel, you can walk nearly anywhere in the town. Another positive is the fact that the hostel draws a wide range of people and they are basically a good crowd and a good mix of ages and nationalities. The staff are patient, friendly and helpful. For the negatives -- A glaring error for any hostel is to have a small and/or poorly stocked kitchen. For a hostel that probably has 200 or more beds, this is the most appalling kitchen ever. If you any desire to cook (and that is a big reason why I like hosteling), then this kitchen will severely disappoint you. It is literally as small as a small bathroom (in a private home, not the kind in hostels, with many toilets and showers). There is one stove, with only 3 out of the 4 burners working. There are hardly any pots or pans, utensils, plates or cups ... And three people in the kitchen at the same time makes it crowded and you are literally running into each other. The one refrigerator for all the people, is overflowing, and you can really only fit maybe one small bag of food. Another negative -- although there are drawers under the beds (in the room that I stayed in, anyhow), none of them have the ability to use locks. There are no storage areas where you can use a lock. There is one outlet in the entire room (for 5 people) and it is in the bathroom. The toilet seat was half off, we had to go ask for toilet paper, as there was almost none in the bathroom ... the shower was extremely hot or extremely cold. The computers are somewhat slow, but there are 4 of them, which is helpful. Overall, if your needs at a hostel do not include cooking for yourself, and you are more concerned with the vibe of the people, then this hostel is fine. If one of the reasons you stay in a hostel is to cook for yourself, or if you are expecting major ambiance, this may not be your first choice for a hostel in Mendoza.
