Peaceful Hostel Lao Pool House Room

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · La Rioja, Mendoza, Mendoza, Argentina

The Space

The much loved hostel Lao (currently top rated speciality lodging Trip Advisor and top rated Mendoza hostel on (website hidden) and hostelworld) brings a cozy double room in the pool to the Airbnb community. We have had great fun and some wonderful places through this site so we are offering reduced rate rooms to the community. The room is in the pool house in the hostel garden. It is one of two small independent private rooms in the space that share a bathroom. The rooms are very quiet spaces as the area is situated apart from the main hostel building, both have large windows out onto the garden. Sheets towels and a great breakfast are included and even some free wine in the evening and complete use of our stunning home/hostel! We are located just 10minutes from the main bus station and a 5 minute walk form the main street. A perfect location and our 24 hour reception will be more than happy to point you in the right direction for a local Mendozan experience.

Our hostel is a home. Our escape from the rat race. A place to relax and meet travelers.

  • The hostel was great. There was no one there to let you in from 2-5 which was a bit annoying but manageable.

    Response from Mike & Celeste:

    To all potential guests-
    We close reception between 2pm-5pm for siesta. All guests who wish to enter or leave during this time have access to keys so you can come and go as you please and Monday to Friday there is a cleaning lady on hand should you have any problems/forget your keys! Most guests prefer to have keys so they can come and go without having to ring the doorbell etc and tbh we can not afford to run a 24 hour reception without raising our prices!

  • The staff at Hostel Lao were extremely helpful and willing to go above and beyond to help us book tours and plan some activities during our stay. The hostel itself is clean and has a very comfortable vibe.

  • Lao is a special place to meet people and relax. We enjoyed sharing Mike's beer, chilling in the hammock and loved loved loved touring the wineries! It's great location and Margarita is a sweet sweet dog person!

  • We had a fun, relaxing stay at Hostel Lao. The hosts coordinated trips as needed and we took advantage of all kinds of activities in the area, including paragliding, canopy tours, and visits to vineyards. It's a great area, and Hostel Lao is one of those rare, chill hostels with great people and an attractive, convenient setting. Private rooms were perfect for our needs and we had no trouble cooking meals and enjoying the nice Mendoza weather in the courtyard. It's a charming place all-around.

  • Nice small room with a lovely backyard garden. The Kitchen is well stuffed and there were good city-to-dos provided. I would definitly going back to the lao pool house!

    November 2013
  • The pool house is in the hostel garden which is delightful - lovely jasmine, bottlebrush in flower, a magnificent palo borracho among other plants - and some interesting birds.
    The atmosphere is great, especially with gentle music, hammocks and other seating, and the pool for a cool dip.
    The staff couldn't be more helpful - very sound advice on money change, seeing a doctor and on a wine visit on bicycles.
    A great stay!

  • This hostel is one of the nicest I've stayed in during my 10 months in Latin America. It's got a good kitchen and lots of places to relax in both inside and outside which really helps to give the place a good atmosphere. The staff were all really helpful and very hardworking and the place is spotlessly clean.
    The location is good and the staff have good knowledge of buses, places to visit etc. I definitely recommend if.
