Hostels in Mendoza, Argentina, are easy to find and there are some great options close to the city centre. They all have the regular and basic amenities that you would expect to find in a hostel, such as Wi-Fi, laundry services, kitchens, and cheap accommodation. Many of the hostels in Mendoza, Argentina, offer free breakfasts and day tours too.
Mendoza itself is most famous and well known for its wine region; red wine is cheap in bars, restaurants, and the supermarkets, and there's an endless amount of tours available to the local vineyards.
It's a lovely little city to break up your journey for a couple of nights, but there's not too much to do in the way of activities or tourism. Aside from the main plaza, shopping, and pedestrian street, there's very little in the city centre itself. Many people choose to take the day tours, which can be horse riding, hiking in the Andes, the winery or olive oil tours, rafting, and other adrenaline activities.
In the evenings and weekends the atmosphere in the city changes and it becomes busy. The restaurants and bars are full, and there's live music in the streets and a good atmosphere. Be careful and mindful at night due to safety concerns, but generally it's safe -- just keep an eye on your belongings. There are some lovely restaurants and lots of great set-menu deals, where you can experience the famous Argentinian steak and red wine! Of course, Mendoza has what every little city has -- lots of hotels, banks, shops, bars, restaurants, as well as everything you'd need for a few days in this city.
Stick to the city centre, as the outskirts are notoriously dodgy and less developed (there's no street lighting at night, for example) and there have been reported incidents there. In the main city centre, particularly during the day, it's buzzing with locals and tourists alike and it doesn't feel sketchy at all. When looking for hostels in Mendoza, Argentina, try to be as close to the main city as possible, which is only fifteen minutes' walking to the bus station.
