Great hostel, tucked away from the main street, and only four blocks from the bus station. Friendly staff, very helpful! We stayed in a private room, comfortable bed, fresh sheets and a nice pool to take a dip, as the days are humid and hot! Not many people around, but very relaxed.
The hostel was in a good location, a short walk from the bus terminal and also a supermarket. The pool area was nice, as was the open air kitchen - though it was a little hectic when more than two people wanted to cook. Breakfast was a small basket of croissants per person so not free realm of what's available. Overall would recommend.
Very good staff, English speaking and very helpful. No lockers, and not a great breakfast, but had a nice pool and kitchen to hang out around. Beds were a bit shaky. I would stay here again though definitely.
Very nice staff. Hostel in a quiet and pretty area. Good breakfast.
Nice hostel, very good and helpful staff!
A really pretty place with great rooms for couple. A nice pool to refresh. A cool staff with a lot of explanations.
Great atmosphere with large shared kitchen, pool table, table tennis, and comunal sitting/breakfast area. Rooms basic and clean-ish. Close to bus station so easy to get to falls. Watch out for the dogs early in the morning as we were bitten - obviously not to do with the hostel (who were great when it happened) but just a warning about Iguazu. However, no one else had problems when we were there with the dogs so probably just unlucky.

A nice hostel with a friendly atmosphere. Good, clean room, lovely staff and a nice pool to relax by! My boyfriend and I had a nice stay in our double room. Breakfast was included and included a super selection of rolls.
Great place to stay to visit Iguazu. Swimming pool was amazing. Shower was a bit wack in the 4-bed room. Staff were incredible and helpful woth whatever you want to do/find around the town.
I had a perfect stay. Nice dinner with argentinien meet and nice conversations with everyone around. Special thanks to the staff, you are great. Nice beer!
The hostel is closed!!! They canceld my reservation in advance but could not refund my 12% hostelbookers deposit. So they told me to come there to get it back in cash. Two times I went to the house during my stay in Iguazu, but there was a huge chain at the front door and the place did not look like a running hostel! So save your money and do not make any reservations!
Nice hostel, great price! Location is pretty good only four blocks from the bus station and near restaurants/stores. Breakfast is OK (free!) And there is a nice area to hang out in the backyard. Shower had hot water and functioning toilets. Air conditioning in the rooms works. Beds could be more comfortable but if you are only there one night it's fine. Did I mention how good the price is?
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Also the breakfast is delicious. It is a 5min walk to the center and the bus terminal. The room is rather small and not clean. The bathroom is not furnished with a curtain, but its ok. The water in the plug hole had a strong smell that was distributed in the whole room, not nice. Its a cheap accomodation ideal for people who dont expect to much or only for one night.

Hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. The kitchen is quite badly equipped (especially when more than 2 people want to cook at the same time). Garden area with small pool and hammocks. The breakfast was nice and better than in many other hostels. The AC in our room didn't work well (only fan). Central location.
I had a difficult experience finding this place-if it's 4 blocks from the bus station, I"m the queen of Spain. If you go, get better directions before you arrive because no one had heard of it and the hostel (in direction section) counts a long street with no side streets on one side as one block, it's poorly marked and further than you'd think. I was lost in the hot sun for an hour.. Otherwise it was passably comfortable, clean, breakfast was simple (coffee tea bags? but generous w/ pan). OK.
Nice staff, very cosy place with pool and hammocks. The only con are the showers that flood the entire bathroom after usage...
Nice hostel with helpfull staff in a good location (close to the busterminal where all the buses to the waterfalls leave). Hangout area is pretty cool even though the pool seemed not that clean.
Super friendly staff, with loads of tips and ideas. Good location, only few minutes from the bus terminal. My room was good size, with nice bathroom. Old AC but worked fine and helped a lot. Room did have a very bad smell, due to the high humidity and old furniture. Breakfast is basic but good. WiFi worked very well. Small pool is a very nice addition. It was quiet when I was there.
A very relaxed hostel in a good location, just a short walk from the bus terminal and bars and restaurants (and the Brazilian embassy if you need it). The staff were fantastic - so friendly and helpful, and happy to let us persist with our dreadful Spanish despite their very good English! The pool is great and wifi worked well. Rooms are comfortable with good AC. Bathrooms are small and more like a wetroom, good shower and hot water though.
