Hostel Alamo (Mendoza Argentina)- it was a house (really big one!) and now it is working as a hostel and it is really recommended. There is a kitchen, a TV + DVD, a computer + Internet, a tennis table. and the place is also a tourist agency so u can do all kind of activities. the price is about 8.5$us for a person - free use and including breakfast. u should reservation because the place is full most of the time. even also in the dead season.
