Lovely location but the room had no natural light, the shower was cold, there was not a lot of variety for breakfast, wifi didn't work in the bedrooms, rooms were not cleaned in the 3 days we were there and it was generally disappointing. More of a holiday place for locals with lots of children.
Really expect what you pay for at this hostel... It's definitely rough around the edges and you may not sleep that comfortably, but if you're only in iguazu for one or two nights its fine. It's got free wifi running all through so really you're sussed. Friendly enough atmosphere but not very lively, as everyone only stays a short while. Perfect for the young backpacker who doesn't mind roughing it and getting a few pieces of bread for brekkie, ooh but there is a fantastic range of tea!

The staff were all great and I really liked the overall vibe of the place. The kitchen was a bit small and cramped, but had the basics for cooking. A good, simple breakfast. If you are looking for a good, cheap hostel, then Noelia is perfect for you (I would definitely come back)
The staff was nice and friendly, they are offering to bring you to the waterfalls and collect you again that was pretty cool, but it was a pitty that someone stole money out of our bags we left there while we were at the waterfalls - I had a private room with my girlfriend and we ALWAYS locked the door when we left the room!

Lovely hostel overall. Great WiFi, good location, lovely staff. Major downside was kitchen, very badly equipped and dirty. Also the room was dirty, floor hadn't swept in a long time, and bedding stained. The shower had a leak which meant floor covered in water every time, simple to fix with sealer.
I don`t know if it was only our room, but there was an awful smell from the bathroom in the room . When we arrive, there was water all over the floor, the staff saw it but didn`t do much about it. Another staff tried to clean the day after, but it didn`t solve the problem with the bathroom. The breakfast was good, the kitchen ok and wifi not always working! The pool seemed nice but we did not use it!
Noelia was as you would expect for the price. The staff were lovely and helpful, the atmosphere was very chilled and cool, the location was good. However the hot water often did not work, the kitchen had very little equipment, the wifi was very temperamental and would not work in the rooms. Overall, a decent place for what you pay.
The room absolutely stunk due to the plumbing in the bathroom which really should be fixed. It was almost unbearable to be in the room. Also, our room key couldnt open the door which was really annoying and the staff member had alot of trouble opening it too, maybe new locks are needed? Could really use an upgradce of everything. The pool was about the only thing well maintained in this hostel.
This is a super lovely hostel, recommend it 100% Very clean and chill, hot shower, nice staff nice breakfast. Defs a safe space for solo females like mself. Vibe depends on whos there as always, but value-for-money wise: this place is a total winner.
great staff,helpful and smiley:) good athmosphere,relaxed and nice people. room of 6 is big,but bed are old and too confortable,lockers not all working,private bathroom enough cleaned but always very smelly. free towel and soap,which is a plus! good breakfast with cereals,bread,butter jam and dulze de leche,fresh fruit,milk coffe tea and juyce. i recommend it cos it is very good for the price you pay, especially worth it for the staff
The hostel is located pretty close to the bus terminal and other places, and is the cheapest you can find (though notice you also need to pay taxes). While we were staying there, the Wi-Fi didn't work nor the hot water of the shower in our room - two problems that the staff weren't really keen on fixing (they said it's a local problem, while all the other places we've been to in town had a working Internet connection). Breakfast is excellent, and the staff helps planning your Iguazo trip.
Had an enjoyable stay here. Has a nice, laid back atmosphere, easy to socialise with fellow travellers. Would recommend. The bin in the bathroom perhaps needed emptying a little more frequently to stop the room from smelling, but overall, it wasn't a major issue at all.
Booked and paid for 6 beds dorms but the guy somehow put another bed on our room. Awful facilities, very sorry chicken - avoid!
Great stay! Really good value for money. Big and nice breakfast. Good location to bus. All you really need for your stay in Puerto Iguazu.
