Big room, quite basic but not dirty. Big breakfast. A pool but we didn't use as a bit cold. Staff really helpful and called us a taxi and didn't mind us changing the time, gave us good info for going to the falls. We didn't book their tour and got the public bus which was fine and easy. Hostel very near bus stop for airport and falls, restaurants and shops.
I stayed in a private room with my partner and it was 2 single beds joined together that were different heights. The hostel is located close to bus stops which makes visiting the falls easy. The breakfast was fantastic and the showers were hot.
so much good hostel its really nice place to stay

O pessoal é muito educado, prestativo e atencioso!. Tudo excelente: localização, preço, cordialidade, eficiência e presteza no atendimento. Impecáveis. Recomendo a todos. Great place! Excellent value for money, comfortable, clean, safe, peace and quite atmosphere. The staff is kind and helpful. And the location is excellent.
nice and friendly staff. good wi-fi. nice to have a kitchen, too bad it was bit on the dirty side though
Had a fabulous stay here. The facilities are decent and great breakfast but what really stands out is the kindness and helpfulness of the staff. Most are English speaking and all of them will bend over backwards to help you - even when you've checked out. Organised a day tour to Argentina side of Iguacu Falls with no fuss. Would highly recommend this hostel.

This is a great hostel! Wonderful, friendly, English speaking staff (who even came with me to the hospital to translate when I was sick). Amazing breakfasts of eggs, bread, cake, lots of fruit! Hot showers. Unable to award excellent for facilities/cleanliness only due to a lack of bowls/cups in kitchen and a flooded bathroom (rain) which wasn't cleaned up in 2 days. But there are plenty of bathrooms to choose from.
Reasnonable location, went psat a few hostels from the urban terminal to get there. The staff is very nice with pretty good English. I got there during June (off season) so it wasn´t full with other backpackers.
Nice staff and good location. Got a taxi to iguazu falls and it was about 20minutes away. Staff very informative. Breakfast is nice but they need a toaster!
More like a hotel than a hostel. Not too good if you want to meet people. The kitchen faciliteter were not the best but it was possible to cook. Great breakfast buffet and the staff was really helpful
The experience was overall satisfactory, though the common bathroom over in the reception area never had any soap or hand towels, the common room was also too small and not inviting, but we just got bothered by a short hair, short receptionist wearing glasses, that invited everyone but our group from the few folks in that weekends staying there, for a cook out with no concern of being friendly, perhaps afraid of competition as she was clearly trying her moves on the boys there. Too high school!

Best hostel ever! I couldn't recommend it more! Good location (close tot the bus station, so you get easily to the airport and the falls), nice rooms, good breakfast that lasts the whole breakfast period (not like in other places), but the best is obviously the staff. They are very polite, kind, and pay attention to clients. They offer a service that you would expect from a hotel. I honestly recommend it to everybody! :)
Lovely hostel that felt more like a hotel. Rooms where spacious and clean, breakfast was very good and the staff was friendly. Good location near the busstation to the falls.
Super friendly staff . Really good breakfast. I enjoyed staying there n would recommend the place to anyone.
Breakfast was delicious. Close to the bus terminal and the bus to the falls. Great option as a place to stay.
Best price-service-relation close to the bus terminal (that was our criteria). We had a private-double-room with TV. We started from there by public bus to the Brazil side of the waterfalls, the Itaipu dam and Paraguay. The posada organized a trip to the Agentina side of the waterfalls. All was clean, the breakfast good and the stuff (one spoke German) very nice. Only the traffic in the early morning was a litte loud, but a good alarm clock to get up and use the daytime.
This hostel was great and the staff were amazing! It has a great set up with good cooking facilities and great swimming pool. Staff spoke several languages, including English and did everything they could to help us and make us feel welcome. There is a nice friendly, relaxed vibe set by the staff. The only minor thing that could be improved is the directions on hostelworld. Whilst it is easy walking distance from the urban bus terminal, guests need to know more than how many blocks it is.
Very good hostel with kitchen and swimming pool, 5 mins walking from city bus terminal. One of the best hostel in Foz de Iguazu.
