Really nice and helpful staff! The hostel is only 5 min from the bus terminal and close to the center
The hostel was ok but Alva, one of the receptionists was one of the nicest, most helpful people we have met on our trip. She deserves a raise!
Brilliant hostel,very clean,staff friendly and helpful with tours,2mins from bus station,if ur fit enough walk,great BBQ ,highly recommended
great hostel and friendly people really missed the bbq there!
The hostel was nice but it is a shame booking in advance is more expensive. The room rates are displayed on the wall and they are considerably cheaper than the price you pay on hostelworld :(
Great little hostel :) Nice and helpfull staff!!
Hostel had a good bar, good wifi, spacious rooms and was in a good location. It was also clean! When asked for help the staff were great and offered great information. Security not so great. No were to lock suitcases up and no individual dorm keys. Hostel was empty so we didn't get to meet anyone else.
We booked a private Doubleroom Ensuite. Got room number 7, and it was great. Big spacious and clean room - can recommend it.
Friendly hostel, helpful staff, they'll give you good advices. Nice breakfast.
The 4-bed dorm I made a reservation for, was not available. Therefore I had to sleep in the 12-bed dorm, in which there were several leaks, as well as many mosquitos. The shared toilets and showers were also not well maintained and not very clean. However, when I spent the 2nd night in the 4-bed dorm, it was way better! The bathroom there was cleaner. I did get a discount because of the leaks. In general there was a good atmosphere, the pool (in another hostel nearby) is nice.
Very good hostel with a warm atmosphere. Fernando is very energetic and always ready to help us book the small tours. The kitchen is clean and organized. Very nutritious breakfast, including with apples!! I totally recommend this hostel!
nice quiet hostel. people were already sleeping in the big dorms at around 10pm, so dont come here if you want to make party. its ok for some quiet time after visiting the water falls
Full of bedbugs and our room wasent the only one. The staff was perfect
Hospitality was below average (reception guy who is watching loudly action movie in the reception desk when guests were trying reading a book or rest; not appropriate information about timing for trip to the brasilian side during weekend). Average breakfast. Customer service training strongly recommended!
Nice hostel on a nice location in a big city. So we enjoy oue stay here.
Great stuff, guys really know what you can do, how to get etc...I enjoyed it :D
We were staying for 3 nights. We had a double room w/ private bathroom. Everything was very clean, the furniture being nice and functional at the same time. The breakfast consisted of bread, jam, dulce and cake. And they had freshly pressed orange juice (!) and of course coffee and tea. The hostel is only two blocks away from the bus terminal and the city center with a bank, shops and restaurants. The staff of Bambu was very friendly, helpful and relaxed. We really liked staying there!

Friendly staff gave good recommendations on what to do. Hammock out front was great. Rooms were clean. Good location, 5 minutes to the bus station and main bar area. Only downside was that the kitchen was quite small and got busy very quickly.
When we arrived they hadn't put our booking in for a room with bathroom but we got another room with shared bathroom. Breakfast was poor and it was a bit if a walk at night to the centre. Room was nice though.
