Average Hostel. Below par cleaning standards and very poor staff service. The rooms had a strong damp smell.


An ideal place to stay for Igauzu. Nice staff. Easygoing. Decent kitchen and breakfast. Would recommend unless you want a party. Clean. Shower never hot but always enough to get under. Good A/C.


I enjoyed my stay, had a nice chat with the staff and one of the best wifis of my trip. Bathrooms are admittedly not the best, but cleaned regularly.

The facilities were very run down. The dorms were very small with no space for luggage. The place had a stale smell and looked very grubby. The hostel manager was very rude and abrupt to me. We did not feel very welcome and couldn't wait to leave.

HELLO! Incredible everything you say these people were all day changing the dates of hosting and playing with us ... they wanted to stay 2 nights and then at the end of the day only 1 night and paid no desire !!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I enjoyed staying at this hostel very much and met other travelers who were there to see Iguazu Falls. The room was cozy, with extra blankets, only the door did not have a doorknob, so we couldn't close it, and had to keep shoes there to keep it closed. The kitchen was very spacious with 2 big tables to eat on. The breakfast consisted only of dry toast and butter, pieces of orange, and coffee/juice. There was a lovely pool outside and a parrilla! The staff were friendly, and helpful.


The wifi connection was not good. Other than that, this was a great hostel and we would stay there again!


On arrival there was no electricity because of the storm.Rooms are tiny,could hardly move as bags were all around without enough space to store them in wardrobe.No ladder to go up to top bed.Linen was worn out and had a funny smell.Lockers are small and in front of reception only for valuables.Luggage can be left after check out but no proper storage only in the space by the lockers.Have stayed at better hostels.


Small rooms and bathrooms a bit grotty. But very conveniently located and friendly staff.


Can't recommend this hostel as it was so dirty, the one bathroom for all was filthy, nowhere to hang your stuff, v unpleasant showering experience in a place so humid you need to shower a lot! Breakfast was a poor effort, pool was tiny and looked dirty but I didnt brave it. Wifi was pretty good except for when power was down! lockers looked like you could break them very easily and were located in reception not in room, sheets were threadbare.

HELLO MIA! You have a serious behavior problem, you told us that he slept with a knife under her pillow and it was stolen, we cant not believe it! You need a psychologist!    GREETINGS


Frühstück könnte etwas besser sein, sonst alles super!


Nice dorms, awesome to have a quiet air conditioner in the room! Good breakfast, okay kitchen, good location.


Hostel was close to the main bus terminal (300m). Wifi did not work at all. Staff were good though very little English spoken, we thought we had left something in the room and we emailed them and they checked and responded quickly. Plenty of hot water available.Breakfast was only bread, juice, coffee, cake and a little fruit, one morning we were down later for breakfast and nothing was left.


It's okay if you just want a cheap place to stay. It's not a party hostel and therefore rather quiet. The location is quite closed to the center. Breakfast consists of bread, jam, dulce DE keche, juice p, coffee, tea Und oranges. I saw the staff using ice cubes that had been fallen on the ground for the juice, though.
