The stay was good! Very friendly staff, good room, clean, good bathroom, really good breakfast! The Iguazu Falls were amazing- not possible to discribe! Everyone should see the brasilian and the argentinian side- so worth it! All in all- very good! The only sad thing is that Foz de Iguazu is not a really nice town- and the only thing that is open at night is one restaurant... The second day we went to the argentinian side of the falls and that side was much nicer. The hostel is really good!
there are two bambu hostel in Iguazú and when I told them name to the taxi driver he took me to another one, apparently are the same company but the charge me more money to stay in the wrong one, which was good by the way.
Just stayed here for one night but it seems nice also for a few nights. I forgot that there is a time difference in Brasil so I slept too long for getting breakfast but they still gave me some breakfast.
Absolutely lovely hostel! the family who own it do everything to make you feel welcome and comfortable and provide the best breakfast ever!! The hostel is very small and quiet which is just what we wanted after staying in some loud party hostels, great having a few comfortable days to recharge. Nice swimming pool and outside chill out area. Couldn't recommend more.
Overall nice hostel. I was here for a night to check out the Brasil side of Iguassu Falls. The bed was comfortable, there is A/C if necessary. Lockers are small so I left my stuff out but locked. Showers were hot and nice, and the bathrooms were clean and very nice. Atmosphere was okay- there weren't that many people and everyone had stuff to do. Free breakfast was fabulous. They literally serve you! A plate of fruit and one of bread/cheese/ham. And juice/coffee/tea. Far from Falls though.

Absolutely wonderful staff and atmosphere! Really nice hostel, with pool and nice little front yard. The whole place makes you feel extremely at home and comfortable, while still giving you space to drink and be merry with the other guests. Yet, the best thing about this hostel is the staff. They're all insanely helpful and will do almost anything to ensure you enjoy your trip. We had a few hiccups in our trip when we lost our documents and debit card, but thanks to them we still had a blast!
Really enjoyable stay. Great breakfast and the staff were really friendly and helpful
Nice family run hostel. Staff are very helpful and friendly. You feel like your at home. Close enough to everything you need.
Nice family run hostel, helpful staff also one of the son's is a chef and offered a dinner bbq for us which was one of the best meals i've had in brazil. Bathroom could have a fix up but overall great hostel, easy to get to the waterfalls too just one bus.
Loved staying here. Family run business with a mother and her three sons after experiencing life in other countries and professions, the three came back together in Foz de Iguazu. They were very helpful with directions and any random questions I had and was very easy and comfortable to meet travelers to participate in activities. Since the hostel is in the house they grew up in, you feel very much at home. Location is close to the main road easily accessible to all buses.
We had a really good time here. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Every morning there was a breakfast with loads of fresh fruit, prepared by the amazing Mama Bambu. The waterfalls are extremely beautifull. There's a cheap tour heading for Argentina that leaves from the hostel. It was good. But if you have only one day: visit the Brazilian side. You can get there by bus. We saw both side and no have not a single regret.
Close to TTU bus terminal (10 minute walk) and an awesome cheap churrasco (Churrascaria e Pizzaria Tropicana). 24 reals for all you can eat! If you stay here, book through HW. It was cheaper than prices if you just walk in (save at least 10 reals/night). Place is decent - hammocks outside, laptop for common use, TV on 24/7, average breakfast (small fruit platter and bread/ham/egg). It is family run. Definitely do Argentine side on your own rather than the tour they advertise. It's easy but long.
Our best hostel in Brazil. Staff (a family) were really friendly and welcoming. Really helpful in advising us on how best to do the falls and our onward journey. Hot showers and the best breakfast ever!
I stayed here for a couple of days longer than planned as the weather was too bad to see any attractions but was very comfortable to stay and watch some movies on the big TV. Free breakfast is very good and personally served by the lovely ladies... scrambled eggs, toast, jams, fresh cut fruit, tea & coffee, juice... perfect way to start the day. The only thing I wish were improved was security (not enough lockers & front gate always unlocked). Wifi was a bit slow at times but it is most places
Very helpful, friendly staff that made our time in Iguazu extremely enjoyable for the 1 night we were there. Diego cooked everyone in the hostel a BBQ for dinner which was awesome. They also drove us to our argentina hostel the next day which saved a lot of time mucking around with buses and doing the border crossing. would recommend this hostel to anyone.
Third time staying here. Top notch breakfast!
Nice little friendly hostel. Good location and safe area. Very chilled if that's what you are after. Helpful staff also!
The bathroom in our dorm could do with a bit of work but overall a good hostel with great staff
Bambu is an excellent place to stay. I was picked up from the airport on the Argentina side, on time, and was taken across the border, very convenient. The room I had was very clean and very spacious and overlooked the swimming pool (weather too cold for a swim!). The breakfast was a little on the small side for me, but good all the same. Overall the people at Bambu made it a great stay, very welcoming and very happy to advise. Would definitely stay there again.
Had a pretty good stay at the hostel. The brothers were very helpful in providing information and booking things for you when you ask. Great place to stay! Only problem is that there are too few working lockers in the hostel. Tip: it is easy to do the trips to the waterfalls yourself. Book and pay everything there.”
