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.


They have a really cosy garden to hang out and the staff was always very friendly and really helpful if you needed something!


スタッフも親切で雰囲気の良いホステルでした! 蚊が多いけどね...それはホステルのせいではない...


This place is the worst hostel I've stayed in all South America and it was very disappointing to find it in such a touristic place like Iguazu. The staff is useless. The bathroom, shower and the facilities in general are a joke, especially when it comes to cleanliness. There is much better places in town! Avoid Guembe.

Hello there! You ask a question, if I was all wrong, because you stayed 3 nights?? Regards


I LOVED THIS PLACE. the staff at el Guembe are so welcoming and happy. Mauro, one of the staff members, was INCREDIBLE!! He makes you feel at home for sure. The kitchen is very spacious and offers plenty of cooking utensils. The porches are relaxing and the pool is great as well. Very central location to bus station, laundry, and 10min walk to a market.


Place was within walking distance from bus station, Laundromat, restaurants and bars. Bedsheets changed everyday and staff were friendly. Originally booked 2 nights and ended up staying a lot more than this (didn't want to miss WC games!), plus the value for money was excellent. Would recommend place and did so whilst staying.


Good location, near the bus station ( 3 blocks) where you can take the bus which goes at the falls. Good breakfast and room
