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


Hostel is just two blocks off the bus terminal but in the wrong direction, that is, where there are no restaurants, bars or any place you'd want to go to. Rooms are very old and dirty and there's only one bathroom
