The hotel was good enough but silly little things like the breakfast not being fresh, as it was cooked early. Signs to say the tv was only allowed to be. Turned on during 7am and 12pm otherwise they would charge. The AC not allowed to be turned on during times when it would be needed most. They also said that's at iguanid they don't take card for the adventure rides. He was wrong as guessing he wanted a sale himself.
Convenient location - 3 blocks from omnibus terminal, walking distance from 3 frontiers. Room and bathrooms were cleaned daily. Was able to check-in the morning after a 20 hour bus ride. Perfect place to chill out and be surrounded by nature after a big day either by the pool or in the hammock.
Great hostel with a great garden , relaxing small place And plus There is a swimming pool! I recommand!!!
Excellent breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff, possibility to rest in the garden and even use some facilities after checkout. We erjoyed our stay very much and we´d definitely stay here again.
Only one member of staff speak English Nice garden vwith hammocks and lounge area, loyts of lovely plants, relaxing atmosphere
beautiful hostel with good location (only ten minutes away from busstation and very close to bank, supermarket, bars...) only thing that was too bad was the total lack of atmosphere and activities in the hostel during the evenings
Nice garden with a nice pool, big kitchen area...breakfast is abundant and very delicious! Staff is very nice and provides helpful information. WiFi is not available in rooms and sometimes does not work properly, which can be a little annoying.
Awesome hostel which was the perfect counterexperience to Buenos Aires. It is tranquil, with a beautiful garden and a lovely staff.
Nice hostel, lovely communal area with the pool in the garden and seats inside and out. Room decent, basic but fine. Shower could be improved. Lovely and quiet location but not too far from the bus station or town centre (nowhere is!).
My time at this hostel was wonderful. It feels really in with nature. Nice and quiet and comfortable. Nice pool. Amazing breakfast. Gorgeous rooms, nice hot shower.... Close to the bus and town. Definitely would recommend staying at this hostel. Staff recommended an amazing restaurant where I had one of the yummiest dinners ever on Victoria Street!!
Private room no8 was great. Right beside the wireless modem for connectivity so internet was good. The double bed was comfy and the room was well dressed. Has good aircon and fan. Breakfast was excellent, has juice, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs and breads and cereal. Ideal start for trips to the falls. Lots of Mosquitos though so buy some repellent.
Good Hostel, beautiful garden with pool, good kitchen area with barbecue, good breakfast and helpful staff.
The staff were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The room and environment were comfortable. It was a short 4 block walk to the center of town and the bus station. It's about a 20 min. bus ride to the falls. The neighborhood is safe, also. I've been studying in Buenos Aires for 2 1/2 months now, but felt so much more relaxed in this hostel and the neighborhood. I would absolutely stay here again!

An excellent layout. Excellent eating and relaxation area. The pool and the exotic plants gave the hostel an exotic feel to it. Enjoyed my stay
Nice hostel in good location. With really friendly staff who provide plenty of information on the falls!
Good value for the $$$. Nice owner. Doesn't take credit card. U can hear other guests. The window in the shower was rotted and moldy from water exposure. The backyard was gorgeous with plants and pool. Overall happy with the place and all the help that the owner gave. He is very nice.
The staff doesn't speak english. The linen were very thin and the blankets seemed quite old and not so clean. Wifi barely worked.
Garden stone is a lovely tiny hostel situated just 10 minutes walk from the bus station and close to the centre too. Members of the staff don't speak english but they are very helpful and kind, I truly felt at home. The room I slept in was spacious and clean, bed was confy. The bathroom as well was ok, anyway the big plus of the hostel are the garden - extremely nice - and the breakfast which takes place in the garden...so tasty! Would definitely recommend!
Very kind and friendly staff. Like 2 blocks from the centre of town. Very relaxing hostel.
Very friendly staff...with limited English...so if you need specific travel advice (other than just seeing waterfalls) you need to see a travel agent in town. The yard area is terrific for relaxing...so if you want to read a book...in a tropical setting with birds chirping this is an ideal place. Breakfast was terrific! One thing to be aware of is no printing...this is a big problem on a Sunday..where its hard to find in town (most places are closed). 1 key/room is usual security prob in SA.
