I felt very safe and there were two big supermarkets near the place, which came in very handy. The bus stop to the falls is also just a block away. More than anything else the staff was very helpful and friendly. They answered all the questions and took care of some of my difficulties with great English. If you have plans to go to the Argentinian side of the falls it is good to take the tour provided by the hostel. They would take care of all the transportation and the border processes.

I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas here and the staff made everyone feel like they were with family. On Christmas Eve they offered a HUGE dinner to bring everyone together. Free drinks every night to bring people together as well. Great pool. Awesome kitchen. My 10 bed dorm had tons of space. The staff is super friendly and always available to answer any questions or have a drink with you. Easy access from the bus to get to the falls or bird park or over to Argentina. Great hostel!!!

Amazing!!!! Best Hostel in South America so far, awesome staff, facilities. Everything you will need is at this hostel, extremely clean, spacious (good sturdy beds) plug sockets in the lockers so you can charge your stuff while it's locked, also a socket at each bed. Great common areas with PS3, movies etc, awesome pool / area, fully stocked kitchen and free caipirinha's every night! They offer great tours but also great advise if you wish to do it on your own, highly recommend this hostel!!!!!

I couldn't recommend this hostel enough. The staff in particular are a wonderful combination of laid back and incredibly helpful. They went above and beyond to make sure we felt at home. The beds are very comfortable, there is an abundance of showers and toilets and the kitchen is excellent. The pool is a great place to relax after a day at the falls and there's a great indoor area with tv/dvds/playstation games for bad weather. A brilliant hostel!

I stayed at Bambu Hostels for four nights last month. The staff were very helpful providing directions and organizing the Argentine side of the falls. The hostel was clean with a good breakfast and had a relaxing bar for the evenings

Good hostel in the middle of the city, awesome staff, good organised trips. Airport transfer is 50 Reais, you can go to Itaipu and Brazilian Waterfalls for 3 Reais by bus. If you go to Argentinia, organised trip is 140 Reais, you can book a speedboat ride there too for 80 Reais, which is good since you don't need to bother with Pesos :).

Bambu has pretty much everything you might need when travelling to Iguaçu. The space itself is awesome, you have indoor and outdoor chill areas, you have this cool outside bar where someone is always hanging out and the toilets are huge! The staff is always trying to help, even if you're a pain in the ass and almost burn up their kitchen or just have way too many questions. Oh, and the pool will be your best friend when you realize the local warm weather, as well as the pair of hammocks..TOP!

Well placed hostel for visiting both sides of Iguasu Falls. Free caipirinha is a nice touch and swimming pool a novelty while travelling. Staffg were pretty helpful and offered a discount for the bird park.
