Wifi and Internet was non-existent for 3 days and was a big inconvenience, power outages also common. Friendly people staying in the hostel was a plus.
Really good location for bus station, clean rooms and decent breakfast compared to most places we've stayed in south america.
Bambu Mini is a great place to stay in Puerto Iguazu. It is about a three block walk from the bus station. It has a outside bar area and serves bar food such as pizza and empanadas. You can also reserve a seat at the nightly meal (which I did) that included salad, bread and steak. It was delicious and a great value for your pesos! Jimmy was the best manager who also happens to be a great bartender! He was happy to answer any questions I had about my trip to the Falls.
I booked a 12 bed mixed dorm, but it turned out to be a 17 (!) bed mixed dorm. Neither night it was fully booked and therefor it was not that crowded, but it was more than was advertised. Also the toilets did not lock properly which was a little inconvenient. Besides that, the showers and breakfast were good and there was a nice little terrace in front. The hostel is very close to the bus terminal and the staff is friendly and eager to help you.
Great clean little hostel but not much of atmosphere. Found it very difficult to meet people. Staff are super helpful and friendly though. Would stay again.
Fun atmosphere, bar is great, easy to meet people. Was my favorite in Argentina. Jimmy the bartender is awesome!
The staff was great. The beds and showers are oke. Enough space. It's close to busterminal so that's good. I had a great time.
The continuous musical background was not pleasant, the high volume being particularly annoying. The place location is outside the town and it takes 15 minutes to walk to the bus station. Some staff was supportive and helpful but others were not. For the facilities available, and considering the high prices that are prevalent at El Calafate the value was just average on the expensive side. The breakfast was ok. The rooms were very clean.
Nice friendly and helpful staff. Good base to use to see the falls.
Good location, the staffs are very nice and helpful. WIFI sometimes quite slow. The BBQ is excellent. Room is big ans tidy.
Had a very good stay here. Helpfull staff and good value for your money.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Staff were great, hostel is bright and has a great atmosphere, complete with great bar. Location is perfect also. Only issue we had was that the taxi arranged by them to take us to Foz airport in Brazil didn't stop at the Brazilian migration point despite us asking him to (in very bad Spanish). We therefore had to get another expensive taxi back from the airport which was a big irritation. That apart, would definitely stay again, surprised the rating isn't higher!
Nice staff, great Empanadas!!! Tables outside to have breakfast/... Laundry service a little bit expensive (90 Pesos)
Excellent hostel, with extremely friendly staff. Recommendations given by the staff were spot on, and i met some pretty amazing people at this hostel, and loved the stay. Air conditioning was comforting at night, although the wifi wasn't working half the time. I think they were getting a new connection put in the day i was checking out though.
This is a great hostel. Centrally located in Puerto Iguazu. The staff a very friendly and helpful. Single sex dorms which was a bonus. The beds were so comfortable and the mattress really thick. Great BBQ available every night for a good price. I would stay here again.

A good hostel with very helpful staff, any questions about the falls or other tours were answered, location is good and and easy walk from the bus station. The room was comfortable, clean and had a hot strong shower, kitchen had everything you need and breakfast was simple and included fresh orange juice. The private rooms are located next to the bar and common area so the only down side is the noise at night.
Greeted by and accomodated amazingly. staff were always on point, from recommending anything youd like to knocking up great drinks in the bar. very laid back and cant do enough for you. easy access from bus station and short safe walk into town. would highly recommend!!
Super helpful staff, organised a great sociable bbq too (had to pay for)!
A really lovely hostel, the staff were very friendly and helpful, I would definitely recommend this place to stay
