The A/c was broken, it was around 30-35 degrees Celcius. When we told the hostel staff, they didn't take any action. Then the hotel's owner's son told his father. He took us to some back room and showed us two broken A/C's and said there is nothing he can do. Oh and our windows didn't close in our room. When we asked about that, they said: "what are you worried about, no one will steal your stuff." Ah...not the answer we were expecting. Not cool. Wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here.
Great bar, nice owner, great location. You can book your trip to the argentine side of the falls and they take you across the boarder so it's worry free. Rooms nothing special, old bunks and thin mattresses but there's a really cute bar outside and they do nice food.
I stayed one night only, it's ok for the price, excellent location but I it's not what it looks like in the pictures.
we had a great time here. the location is fantastic!! seriously everything you need is close to hand. the greatest part is the owner. all questions we had were answered efficiently and he always had great tips to give to help us get the most out of our visit. thank you
Great hostel. Very well located- the bus to the Falls leaves from across the road. Nice bar area with excellent caipirinhas! A few small things- could use a couple more bathrooms, and wifi just works in the common area. Stand out point though is the staff. Luis in particular is absolutely wonderful- as a tour guide he really knows his stuff and can help with both local and further afield info. Was like staying at a friend's house. Highly recommended.
Amazing staff, well spoken in both english and spanish! :) Really helpful in all ways! Great location on a nice street right next to busstop for Iguazu Falls. They can fix anything you´ll ever need.

There was a severe leak of yellow/brown right above our bathroom sink and a nasty odor in the our second floor and the ground floor bathrooms. Location ok, two blocks from urban bus terminal. Working AC and wifi. Nice to sit around in the terrace in the evening. Breakfast not included in the price and no shared kitchen. Not a `problem' but a drawback. Unwilling to sell coffee in the morning, unpleasant. But there is a café right next to hostel. Staff are very nice otherwise.
Owner very helpful In navigating bus system and friendly in general. Comfortable atmosphere for hanging out.
Not very clean, no one clean the bathroom for 2 days. Even the toilet garbage is there for 2 days. But price is quite fair. Bus terminal just 5 min walk. The staffs are very friendly and willing to help out everything. And speak English . Like here very much!
Great location a block from the bus station. Staff is helpful but mostly trying to sell tours.
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.
