The hostel is conveniently located downtown and close to the bus terminal. It is easy to go to the Iguazu falls from there. Our room was spacious, quiet and clean. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about seeing the local attractions. We had air conditioning, which is not a default in Brazil. However, since our room was upstairs, the wi-fi did not work there. We needed to come down to the common area to use it, but there were lots of nasty mosquitoes that bit.


Stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting the falls. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. As a group of 4 we had a 10 bed dorm all to ourselves. Wifi, air con, table tennis and available lockers. The atmosphere wasn't great but we were out of peak season. The showers are very cold but overall the hostel was great.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hostel Katharina. We stayed in a private double room with an ensuite. It is conveniently located and is walking distance to the bus station where you can get the bus to see Iguazu Falls. It's also close to a main road with several restaurants including great Lebanese restaurants. The staff were really friendly and helpful. I would definitrly recommend staying here. It also has a bar located at the front of the hotel but this was quiet when we were staying there.

Good location close to the TTU/Terminal where the buses to the National Park as well as to the airport and international/interregional bus terminal depart. Dorm rooms have no keys and no lockers. Breakfast is not included in the price. There is no shared kitchen in the hostel. Was still a nice place to stay.


Great place to stay


Cold rooms and incorrect information about bus times etc. Staff were friendly though and did their best to help.


This is a nice hostel and the staff is very helpful and quite good in english but the bed in our private room was terrible.


Really good hostel. Friendly/helpful staff. Great location for getting to the Brasil side of the falls and organise a good trip to the Argentina side too.

Amazing location and great staff!


great location for the bus to the falls, lots of restaurants close by too, and a big supermarket next to the bus station for stocking up on snacks etc for long bus trips.


Their inability to accommodate credit transactions was inconvenient.
