This is a fantastic hostel in Iguazu. The athmosphere is great. The garden of the hostel is like paradise. Only the breakfast could be slightly better.
Peaceful place with a pretty garden but a bit disappointing overall. The pool was dirty and the kitchen was quite poorly stocked with utensils. The aircon in the room wasn't great. It was ok for one night but not what we expected for the amount we paid for a private room
Great place to stay, incredibly helpful staff!
Though it is a but old and worn out, but the staff is friendly and helpful. Having a pool to cool off after a hot day is supreme.
I was dissapointed when we arrived at the hostel. I saw all the good reviews on hostel world, but that was not my experience. The staff spoke very poor English, didn't gave us really useful information when we arrived and was not really friendly.. The kitchen was poorly equipped (only one knife) and not very clean. The airconditioning was not working properly, so we had two very bad nights over here. The atmosphere was also not like as I read in the reviews, so overall a dissapointment

Very tired rooms. They just feel dirty. We moved to Bambu next door for an extra night. Much cleaner and was more sociable with its bar.

Really nice hostel with a great communal area at the back of the garden which has a kitchen area, pool and 2 large spaces to sit and chat / drink. There's also hammocks within the trees to chill out. Location could be better but would definitely recommend
The staff very very nice and helpfull. And breakfast the best I had in a Hostel in Argentina, a lot of options.
Good friendly hostel with nice pool and plentiful breakfast. Boys dorm is much nicer than girls dorm with more space and shared bathrooms are nicer than girls ensuite.
Pretty reasonable hostel. Pool was great to cool down in, not the cleanest, but passable. Showers however, seem to only have one tap for 'warm' water, so no chances of a cold shower in the heat. Also make sure you use bug repellent - my feet and legs got bitten to death one evening just sitting in bed!
mixed feelings about the dorms, not very comfy, wifi didn't work well in the room, breakfast was poor, overall ok.
Lovely spot. We spent three very nice days here. The pool area is wonderful for cooling off after hiking in the National Park. It's clear that the owner takes pride in cleanliness and good service.
Great location and very quirky hostel which I would stay in again without a second thought. Most of the Puerta Iguazu hotels are double the price of this place, outside the town and no better. Stay here instead.
Our stay was short, but nice. The hostel was very clean and the atmosphere nice. The breakfast was normal, the staff was friendly and gave us any information we wanted.
Good hostel, not too far from the bus station or town. Really helpful staff. Lovely garden setting. Only downside for us was the room was a bit small, we could barely get all our bags in and close the door. It was really hot in there without the air con on which you can only use from 10pm -10am. Overall though, we thought it was good value and a nice place to stay. Would recommend.
Nice and cozy hostel with pool that is definitely worth it with the heat in Iguazú. Cleanliness could be better but the staff is very nice. Amazing breakfast selection with everything you need, even scrumbled eggs. Nice place close to the center. Would recommend staying there.
We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel! Nice swimming pool and a lovely garden with hammocks. The breakfast was good and the stuff were helpfull. Close to the bus station and downtown.
Just a couple of blocks from the centre, quiet place with lovely garden. We stayed in an ensuite room which was a little small but adequate.
The Garden Stone is a really lovely place to stay. If we would have had the chance to stay there longer, we would have done this. I can hardly recommend this hostel for your trip to Puerto Iguazu!
I thought the staff were very helpful. My mother arrived at the hostel and was very unwell, the man on reception immediately offered to drive us to the nearest doctor. It was a big help, we would have been stuck otherwise.
