Pros: Located close to the bus station, handy for getting to the falls. Good price for a private room R$44 pp. Staff very helpful with information. Con: Cooker not working in the kitchen, very little atmosphere (prob due to Brazillian families etc). Foz not a very inspiring place to stay.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Good breakfast. the room is clean.

Hot showers. Close to the bus terminal which made it easy to get around to see the sites. Staff were very helpful and showed us many things to see. This is more of a family hostel not easy to meet other travellers but great if you are a couple wanting a few days together
Was a nice hostel! Very close to shops and restaurants and they provided us with tours etc. We had a problem with missing a connecting coach so emailed up the hostel and they rescheduled the booking with no problem .. Which was great! Also we arrived at 8am and were able to check in, shower and go to the falls which was great (we had time constraints). Only problem .. Breakfast cost! Which was strange for a pousada (bed AND breakfast). But overall a really nice secure place! Thanks guys!

good place to stay one night. It is like bed and breakfast place. Good for the price but no so good to another things like activities and more. bom lugar para ficar uma noite. É como um lugar Bad-Breakfast. Bom para o preço, mas não tão bom para outra coisas como atividades e muito mais.
We stayed here for two nights in June. The staff were friendly and we organised a trip to the Argentinian side of the Iguassu Falls through them for 99 reals, which was good. The breakfast was really good, and we also used the small kitchen to cook, which was fine.

The staff is the most helpful I have ever seen in a hostel!
The kitchen needs some more cooking utensils added but apart from that fantastic hostel. The staff were amazing, breakfast is great and close to everything you need.
A very nice place and helpful staff. Only stayed here one night but would definetly stay here again.
Great location but fairly soulless. I arrived at 1am so had purposely booked a private room to get some sleep and not disturb others but the room they put me in had just been bug sprayed and I couldn't sleep for the fumes. Fair play to them though as they at least found me another room at 3am...just wish they didn't put me in there in the first place? Staff were super helpful which made up for the room fiasco and pretty average breaky. Don't believe the other review hype about the food!
Ok place, big hostel with lots of rooms but our double room out the back was pretty terrible. Did have its own wi-fi though. Decent breakfast and pool though for relaxing. Short walk downhill from bus terminal.
Nice Place for one or two nights, clean, friendly, central location. Everthing was okay!
Really friendly and helpful staff, amazing breakfast, good location and discounts on some activities in the area. Overall a very positive stay!
Good hostel with nice breakfast..bit out of the bitten track but not too bad
Staff was awesome! However, the kitchen was a bit small. Not enough pots, pans, and utensils for such a big hostel. Did not like how they charge extra for computer use.
Good location, Wi Fi excellent in room, staff very helpful and friendly (English speaking). The downside was the kitchen, hardly any utensils to use and a small fridge for the amount of guests that try and use it (broke whilst we were there and a lot of guests lost their food). If you like eating out then there is no downside to the hostel, but is more of a motel than hostel as people have previously commented - there is no real communal area.
The staff was very helpful, the air conditioning was good, breakfest was very good. The shared rooms were at a different building from the hostel and they seemed to be distant from the common areas which made the atmosphere not so nice. The bathrooms were realy small.
Staff was verrrrry helpful and friendly, breakfast was amazing they actually had scrambled eggs and sausage. Great location. The beds were proper "non bunk" beds and they were comfortable. Rooms had lockers in them for each guest. Didn't cram too many people into one room. Not much of a common room so not that great for meeting people although I managed ok. It was kind of a mix between a hostel and a hotel.
