We are the largest hostel in Villa de Merlo, a small touristic town in the province of San Luis, on the border with the province of Cordoba. The hostel has been running for 8 years now and much of that is thanks to those who have volunteered here to help make the experience enjoyable. We pride ourself on great customer service and our friendly helpful staff. The idea here is to give you a fun experience and help you keep traveling through Argentina!
