About this listing
The much loved hostel Lao (currently top rated speciality lodging on Trip Advisor and top rated Mendoza hostel) brings a simple, cozy double room to the Airbnb community. This listing is for 1 of 2 ensuite doubles, both different and you could be put in eihter! (Please note that 1 room which was criticised by 1 guest, harshly in our opinion, has just been completely redecorated and no longer has a fouton bed) If you need a twin please mention this when booking and we will try to hold the room that can be turned into a twin. The rooms are large comfortable well decorated spaces with ensuite bathrooms, sheets towels and a varied buffet breakfast are included and complete use of our home/hostel.
We treat our hostel like a home and ask you to do the same. It is our escape from the rat race. A home from home where you can relax and meet travelers. A comfortable base from which to explore one of the worlds great wine capitals.
When you stay with us you can access your room and you have complete use of the house as if it were your own. Including a fully equiped kitchen, two living rooms one of which has cable TV, free internet, wifi, a wine cellar, garden, hammocks, plunge pool(in summer!) and a traditional Argentine Asado pit.

You will find we have a fantastic range of shops, cafes, delis, wine shops, tasting rooms, plazas, museums and much more all within a short walk.

Great place! Friendly people, Room was clean and as described. We had an Argentinean parrillada in the night in the garden which was delightful.
We had a great time. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room had everything we needed.
Hostel Lao was fantastic! I stayed in the Terrace Room right above the courtyard and enjoyed every moment of it. The staff was wonderful and provided helpful info on things to see and do in Mendoza and it was great getting to know all the other guests over the delicious asada on the night I arrived. Will definitely be back!
This hostel is wonderful, a relaxing and inviting place to stay! Definitely do the spa trip, it was the highlight of our stay in Mendoza!
Laos is een geweldige plek! Het begint met een goed bed (matras), warme douche en pas geknapte ruime kamer. Maar er is veel meer. In de eerste plaats de goede, vriendelijke service van het personeel. Verder de tuin en de asado die Francesco verzorgde. Erg gezellig. Een aanrader.
Excellent accueil de Mike, Cesleste et Mauricio (et Margarita!).
Hostel très agréable, le jardin et le salon sont des espaces magnifiques où l'on se sent à l'aise tout de suite. Tout est très propre (pièces communes et chambres et salles de bain).
Excellent emplacement, très proche de la station de bus et du centre ville.
A recommander sans hésitation pour un séjour à Mendoza !
Great place to stay! The Tango Room was lovely and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Anything we wanted to know about/do in Mendoza, they had a great recommendation for us. They even set us up on an afternoon wine tour one day and a trip through the Andes another day. We also hung out one night and participated in an asado they were having. Thanks guys! I'll certainly stay here again if I'm back in Mendoza.
