Nice clean hostel with a good staff. Pancakes in the morning are great. They don't let you bring outside alcohol because they want you to spend money at their bar, which is irritating. I don't like when hostels have a policy like that. No microwave for leftovers either.


Stayed for 2 nights & loved this hostel. It's well looked after & well equipped. Clean, quiet dorm with bed linen, comfortable bed & plenty of shelf space for bags. Helpful staff. Good breakfast (bread, fresh orange juice, apples, fresh pancakes & nice strong coffee!) Good bar area, would benefit with a couple more hammocks or bean bags for comfort & to make it more sociable. Wifi wasn't very good, but think the whole town had electrical problems during our stay (power cut at a restaurant too)


Awesome hostel - super friendly staff who put up with my terrible Spanish, great location (two blocks from main road

Really lovely place, staff were super nice and went out of their way to make sure I was looked after, in spite of my dodgy Spanish. Great outside area and bar, with brilliant empanadas.


great hostel. comfy bed (was in a 4 bunk room), clean bathrooms. they made sure i had hot pancakes for breakfast. lovely staff. 2 blocks from the station. nice terrace and bar outside. only thing missing was a communal living area with sofas as we weren't allowed on the reception couch when it was storming outside. (although there was a large communal kitchen - just dark as the storm had knocked down the power lines). would definitely recommend.


The staff is exceptionally nice and helpful. Given the price of staying here, the room and breakfast were great. Clean and plenty comfortable for a convenient and short stay.

Great little hostel with really friendly staff. Check in was in the afternoon but they kindly let us put our stuff in the luggage storage and have a shower using the communal bathroom (which we needed after an overnight bus journey!) Wifi only worked in the common areas. Our private room had a nice big bed, good bathroom and lots of plug points. The receptionist was really helpful and even opened up the bar early for us so we could watch the football with a beer! Sold nice pizzas at the bar.


Only 2 toilet included shower. It was not enough. There were a lot of mosquitoes. I was bitten a lot. They offer eggs for breakfast.

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.


Perfect place with friendly


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.
