Very nice hostel, located at 5 minutes from the bus terminal. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast in a nice garden with swimming pool. Helpful and very nice staff. Recommendable!
Location is great, staff very helpful, there's a swimming pool, breakfast is better than average with bread, cereal, fruit, eggs, cake and coffee. But, the ensuite bathroom was disgusting - it looked like the toilet had never been cleaned and certainly wasn't cleaned during our stay. By our third day, our whole room smelled like the toilet! With a bit more attention to cleanliness, this could be a great hostel though.
We had a great time here, were supposed to stay for two nights, but we stayed for four instead. The staff were great, although did not speak english so keep that in mind. The outdoor kitchen is pretty awesome.
Good place to stay, very helpful staff, clean. When I was there during off-season, it was very quiet. Only the breakfast could have a little more options than jam and butter.
Nice hostel with a cosy 'homely' feel to it, great for a night or two to see the falls
Well situated and the structure of the hostel is really nice.
Good hostel, nice and helpful staff (some don't speak any english). Good location within a short walking distance to town and bus terminal. The breakfast could be a bit richer (there's only dulce de leche to put on your bred).
It was clean and nice and the people staying there were friendly too.

I really enjoyed the stay in Garden Stone, a beautiful little hostel with a peaceful garden and pool. The staff was very friendly and there was a good breakfast. I would definitely recommend staying here or in a hostel near by. The argentinian side of the falls is so much nicer, not just the falls but also the town. The hostel is close to the border (and still in walking in walking distance to the center) of the town wich was excellent for me to do a run!
The hostel was neat and clean, and I liked that people were supposed to be quiet after 12 or 1am. The yard was absolutely beautiful and the breakfast was great. Only negative - We felt that the woman running the place was always kind of angry. I was always afraid that she was going to just yell at me (probably flashbacks to my childhood). That being said, we would stay here again.
We really enjoyed our stay and can recommend this hostel. The satff is super friendly and gave us a lot of good information about the Iguazu area. I love the decoration of the hostel. The room and the bathrooms are clean. The breakfast was really good. We satyed 2 nights on the brasilien side and 2 nights on the argentinien side. We really liked the argentinien side more. The city of Puerto Iguazu is nicer and supermarkets, restaurants and souvenirs are cheaper.
Hotel staff were very friendly and atmosphere was no doubt relaxing. Price was comparable reasonable in iguazu, where it is much more expensive than rest of Argentina. We stayed in room with shared bathroom, which the cleanliness definitely need to be improved. The water pressure was weak and sink was dirty. Breakfast choice was ok with cereal, bread, fried egg and fruit. It ll be even better to improve on the frequency of refill!
One of the nicest and cleanest hostels we have stayed in. We had a fantastic time.
We only stayed one night here but thought it was lovely. We had a nice double room with air con, a lovely lady tell us all about getting to/from the park, and we cooked our dinner in an outside kitchen. The breakfast was also good. They stored our bags for us for the day. It felt quite secure too. Just mind the mosquitoes (3 bites whilst checking in!) and the showers a bit drizzly, but the place all in all was pretty perfect would reccomend. Ooooh and a lovely pool to chill out by too.
Pool area was great and it is a nice clean hostel. There are two bathrooms inside and one them barely has running water so really only one shower to share which made mornings hard to get away (and it was cold). Kitchen is nice being out the back just bring mosquito repellent
A nice place to chill out - and close enough to the bus station (lets face it, we are all here as a jump off point for the falls!) Lovely to sit by the pool, and love that we have a kitchen! The garden is beautiful and the staff helped me to book tours and gave me information. All in all, a pleasant stay, and provided me with what I needed.
Stayed here for one night after seeing the falls. Nice roomy dorm, helpful staff and it did the trick. Didn't get a sense of a great atmosphere to meet people but then again I was only there a night and I guess it depends on what the other guests are like. Would stay here again.
Amazing place to stay! Very very clean. Locations is right in the center (2 blocks away from the all bars, restaurants and shops). Staff is very nice and helpful. Breakfast are super good and huge variety! Big nice kitchen, yard with hammocks surrounded by beautiful flora, and nice clean pool. I LOVED IT!
The hostel is ok. But the kitchen and the floor are very dirty. Ther were bedbugs in the rooms. So we would not choose the hostel once again.
