The standard double room we had was very nice and spacious. A short walk from the bus terminal and a lovely swimming pool. Only negative was the kitchen facilities which were basic and very small which made cooking difficult as very little work top space to prepare. Would still recommend for a short stay to visit the falls.
My stay at the hostel was very good: at the reception they gave me a lot of information about the town and activities to do around, the room was comfortable and clean (good for the 5 people staying), and breakfast was sufficient (bread, eggs, fruits, coffee, milk, cereal, juice). What I liked the most was the help offered by the receptionists at all time.

Lovely garden, small pool to help cool down after visiting the falls. Good breakfast in the morning. Kitchen could do with more cooking facilities.
The place has nice gardens which attract mosquitos. Nice social areas which get noisy and crowded because the WiFI doesn't work in the bedrooms. They blame Argentinian server which is a lie. Breakfast is very low standards when you think this is the tropic and they offer sour oranges, stale bread and coffee. Tiny rooms. Squeeze a family of 4 in a tiny room. Hard matresses. Noisy until guest go to sleep. And sorry not good to have guests making love at 2 am in the social area. Not cool!

Really quaint, relaxing hostel. The backyard garden is beautiful and the hostel itself provides everything you look for in a hostel. Bathrooms were clean, staff was friendly, overall great stay, would recommend
My husband and I arrived two days early, but there was no room for us so the owners very kindly called around the local hostels until they found a private room for a similar price. This was very helpful as it was 10.30pm and we were tired and new to the town. It's a five minute walk to the bus station, but it's located in a quieter part of town. The hostel has a beautiful garden, and is very peaceful. It was very quiet at night. The breakfast included fruit. The rooms are clean and cheerful.
Part of the staff was amazing and part of it was ok. The facilities and location are great, and I really recommend staying in this hostel.

Fantastic place, really nice swimming pool and garden. Breakfast was one of the best we had in Argentina. Good atmosphere, very friendly and helpfull staff.
Really nice, quiet hostel with a great backyard and open-air kitchen. Staff was very helpful. Relaxing atmosphere - would stay there again!
Very good, helpful management at the hostel. Nice, tranquil place.
Lovely breakfast,nice pool and seating area.It would have been nice to have wifi at the kitchen area instead of having to go to the reception. Everything else good and staff helpful
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!).
