Good basic hostel to get your head down. The kitchen was poorly equipped and of two ovens neither worked until we notified the staff. Next day new/second hand one arrived which was fine. Rooms were small, pokey and basic. Staff were helpful. breakfast was standard bread, jam, coffee, butter. just a basic hostel for backpackers
Staff best part of hostel. excellent and helpful. Rooms OK for the $ not great. Pool nice. Large grounds. Were repainting place, good. Looks like the place has seen better days. Kitchen needs lot work. Tables unstable, old need to replace. Need lock on kitchen door keep dogs out. 1 packed frig that is never cleaned out. Need force people lable food. Stoves work OK not great. Need 1 more sink for amount of use. Need more utensiles and dish racks. Need basics like salt and peper for cooking.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the public sitting area with bar was good however the rooms are extremely small and almost cel like. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm and it is extremely intimate sleeping that close with other people. There are great big lockers which is good however there is definitely not enough room for everyones bags on the floor. The kitchen is not very good with very little utensils and breakfast is terrible with stale bread and jam.
Nice place to stay in Puerto Iguazu. Staff was cool. Little bit of a party hostel but more cozy than crazy. Would stay there again - close to bus terminal and restaurants.
rooms are very small, one tends to get claustrophobic. Cleanness a disaster in all of the hostel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location 3 blocks away from the bus station
The hostel was not good at all! There were no knives, spoons and glasses in the kitchen. The breakfast was very poor. I think the last time they clean the place was more than a month ago, everything was in a bad condition. The room was not what we have reserved. Our stay there was really bad, I strongly do not recommed it.
Considering the rate this hostel offers excellent value for money. The location gave easy access to the town facilities and the staff and the taxi driver associated with the hostel were very good.
The hostel is not well maintained so could use some renovation. Room has lockers and is standard. The bathroom had a bad smell, so we kept the door closed. The kitchen wasn't clean and also the water in the pool should be refreshed. Chill area is good and also the wifi. Location is great, close to the busstation and restaurants. Staff is helpfull.
Only 3 blocks from the bus station. Great staff. Has small cafe /bar on-site.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!! We just had trouble with this hostel...WE HAD TO CHANGE ROOMS 4 TIMES in 2 nights. In 2 rooms the toilets were broken and we had stinky water from there in our room. Then we where changed to a 6 bed dorm without telling us..We booked a 4 bed dorm and we ended up in a 6 bed dorm. When we asked for speaking with the manager of this place..they always told us that she will come soon or that we just missed here..So we waited long time for her without showing up.
Everything was good... Just a little dated and worn out- Some updating or renovations would improve this place dramatically!! But all in all, a nice simple hostel, close to everything in Puerto Iguazu. Comfortable enough beds for a night or two, bathrooms were fine too
Really close to the bus station. The building is getting older which you can see everywhere. Matresses are getting (too) old as well. But it's a good starting point for your visit to the Iguazu Falls. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
Not good, was probably nice when new...

Well it's not a bad place, but I didn't fall in love with it either. Basically this is a party hostel, with poolside bar and loud music playing all evening. Some will love this, I didn't. The rooms are large however and clean, with good a/c. So you defenitly get a good night sleep. Staff is not really super friendly and you are not allowed to store your luggage after check out (a bit stupid for a backpacker place...).
On arriving at this hostel I was shown a room with dirty sheets and unclean surroundings. On being moved to another room at 1.am I was terrified to see a Tarantula spider running around my room. I had to get a security guard to kill it eventually 2.30am and could not sleep at all that evening. The spider hit me in the leg and created a painful leg.

A double room was much more expensive than a twin room so we booked a twin and it was bunk beds in a pretty small room. We decided to stick with the budget choice as we are long-term travellers but if you are on holiday - go for the double! Big kitchen but lacking in some equipment. Great massive pool. Great location near the bus station. The room was cleaned each day.
Hostel has great potential. but we think after 2006 nothing happend to the hostel. So everything is old and dirty. The staff doesn't give a damn about you, if you don't speak spanish you have a problem (we do speak Spanish..)
Very close to the bus station. Helpful staff, the chef was a lovely hardworking man! Lockers were good. Beds were uncomfortable and aircon was very loud. Don't use the oven unless you want your dinner to be covered in a layer of melted plastic. One of the staff members used a knife to keep the gas on but nearly burnt the hostel down.
This was a nice place to spend a few days! Rooms had AC, there's a swimming pool to cool of in, there's a bar, they arranged an affordable airport transfer, ...
We stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas. The location is great, just a few blocks from the main streets and the bus terminal, so easy to organise trips to the falls & onward journeys, and find food. It was nice to have a pool to cool down, and the kiosk/bar was very handy. The kitchen is nice & big. We had a private double with ensuite, which was OK, but very bare (no pictures, cupboard or hooks to hang anything). The staff were generally friendly and informative. A decent place.
