Very nice hostel. Dorms are big with good A/C. The bar is only open from 6pm or later and you can't bring in your own drink so if you want a drink earlier you have to go to a bar, that's a bit annoying! Staff are helpful, we had a lot of hassle with the booking of our bus tickets to our next destination but the staff did the best they could!
Spacious and comfortable rooms with plenty of clean bathrooms and communal areas. Well equipped kitchen. Staff exceptionally helpful and friendly especially Juliana. Location has relative ease to visit falls etc. Only feedback would be directions to the hostel listed could be more specific (ie catch bus 115 from bus terminal. Get off at McDonald and walk one block behind and turn right...) Thanks for a great Falls experience!
This is a really good hostel. A little out of town but that's why it's so cheap! Air con was lovely in the rooms (unless your the bed underneath it!) nice pool, great outside bar and good tours run from the hostel. I know it's a lot to do with the people staying at the hostel but our time here was great it felt very safe and we met some great people! Recommend this place to anyone. I'd go back! Little tip.. The Argie side is the one!
Very helpfull staff! Cordinating with locals to arrange trip to the argentinean side. The Brazil side is very easy to get to from the hostel, two Streets away there is a bus who are driving you directly out to the nationalpark. The staff helped us with finding busses to our next destination. Cleanlines is average. There's always an idiot who clocks the toilet. But overall a very good hostel.
Staff were really helpful and friendly. Beds were good and not shakey metal frame bunk beds, and with a plug socket for each bed. Ok outside communal area and a nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
Good hostel overall, the dorms were quite average and I think the lockers weren't in the actual dorms, but outside. Overall, a friendly, okay place. The staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast was very nice and the facilities were great. Location wasn't ideal, quite far from the bus stop and the bus terminal, but everything else was OK. I think they had day trips to the falls and other activities, but I didn't take advantage of them...
Super friendly staff. Facilities were good. Eggs and sausages (amongst other things) for breakfast!
Loved the hostel - friendly , charming and very accommodating .
Great hostel. Loved the outdoor area with the pool and the outdoor bar and kitchen. Breakfast was one of the best we've had in SA. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Cheap to get your washing done. Really close to 2 big supermarkets and some shops but not much else going on in the town. No curfew in the outdoor area so you can party til as late as you want. Easy to book a tour through the hostel. Definitely recommend!
This goes down as 100% the best breakfast I've had in all of south america! One of the best at any hostel i've been to in over 2 years of backpacking. The fact that they have fresh fruit is heavenly. The environment here is very conducive for interaction. the TV room and the upstairs terrace are perfect places to get to know other travelers. The staff is extremely helpful. I wasn't sure if I should book bc I read about all the crazy partying, but when I was there it was perfect. :) very happy!!!
i love this hostel so much. The staff was really friendly. I met a lot of fun cool people there.

Very clean and staff were very helpful! Good location and the bar makes great cocktails! Shower was sometimes cold, but it didn't matter in the heat. Breakfast was good with eggs, toast, coffee, beans, sausage etc. Great hostel, that meets all of your needs.

Pros: Great staff, all very helpful. Rooms are super clean, new mattresses and pillows. The 10 bed dorm we were in had 2 bathrooms which was really good. Great tv room, great outdoor area / kitchen and pool. Breakfast was delicious. Cons: Only bad this was that there were no lockers. Location bit out of the way from the bus terminal
one of the best hostels i've ever been! perfect!
Had an awesome stay! Staff is very knowledgeable. Though small, the pool was refreshing. One of the best breakfasts I've had from hostels I've stayed at.
Great place to stay when visiting the Iguaçu Falls. The location is easily reachable from the airport and the bus to the national park stops just 3 minutes from the hostel. Excellent facilities with individual lamps and power outlets for each bed and a lot of bathrooms all over the house. Staff is super friendly and helpful, and they mix some powerful cocktails! Bus ticket service also available at a good price. Would definitely recommend.
Great breakfast, great staff and the rooms and communal areas are clean. The pool is a bit dirty and the bar is a bit expensive unless you stick to drinking standard brazilian beer.
The falls are just a short bus ride away from this hostel. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms are spacious. The pool looked clean although we didn't get to use it! The staff on reception were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the bar staff made lovely, strong caipirinhas!! Definitely a good place to stay for a night or two if you are visiting the falls.
Staff very helpful with providing advice on the falls and crossing the border. Excellent breakfast with plenty of variety. Good kitchen facilities and plenty of bathrooms all over the hostel. Was disappointed with the atmosphere but it seems like there is overall lack of nightlife in the town.
what a gem of a spot. great atmosphere, and helpful staff. eggs and sausage on the menu for breakfast for free!
