Pros: fantastic breakfast, great common areas including a back deck and BBQ, location on subway line near many shops n restaurants. Good vibe Cons: security weak in back door area requires manual locking. Not always locked. People can easily climb up onto deck and break in. Pub below can be noisy at night. Beds sag in middle can make for uncomfortable sleep. Kitchen needs more utensils. Area is sketchy at night. Subway station was recently robbed. Lockers are too small. Crowded rooms

Good value for money. Staff are friendly and helpful. Place has a good flow of backpackers. Location is about a 8-10 minute walk to main plaza. Dorm room has signs of mold.

Thank you for your feedback, we will improve the quality of our rooms. We already started to put wood floors in all the rooms in the 1st floor (2nd floor is ok). We already finish with 4 rooms, we still have 3 to go on the first floor, we want to get rid of all the carpets that could give a sense of humidity to the rooms. Take care!

Elizabeth was very friendly and helpful. The night lady was abrupt. The pick up at the airport seams overpriced at 22 soles when the hostel is just 3 min away. Only the airport access is the benefit of this location. Breakfast is continental. Showers were electric low flow.

Residencial Noelia Hostel, Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

Good value for money, with location near the bus terminal. Staff could be more friendly and helpful. If the hostel advertises they can arrange for bus tickets, then to the client it means they will make the booking arrangements and give out a voucher. When we asked for this service, we had to go down to the bus terminal and figure out which company had the discount with Noelia on our own and buy our tickets. A minor inconvenience but all round, I'd still recommend this place to stay.

Staff were amazingly friendly and helpful! You can truly see this hostel is trying their best to help their guests. Breakfasts were one of the best in Argentina. Great value for money! Building security is excellent. Would suggest to improve lockers in dorms, have better common areas for hanging out. Kitchen is cramped and bathrooms could use some renovation work. All in all, I'd recommend this place

Great location. Baggage storage near travel agency needs better security. Dorm room very cramped and stank. Location is central but noise from bar is kept me up until 4am on Sunday morning. Kitchen had little room in fridge to store food. Staff took up most of that space. Other fridges had stank with sour milk. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Early 10am check out. Would be better if place had free wifi.

Good value stay. The morning breakfast is a nice touch. I would strongly suggest offering free wifi to guests and doing something about the annoying electronic key system as keys lose their data and leave guests locked out if their room when going to the bathroom.

Kitchen appliances need replacing. Staff could be more helpful on how to save money on transportation into town and other suggestions on whats worth doing in Sydney. Rooms are very cramped. Very little space for luggage.

Staff tried to charge two of my friends who didnt speak good english 20% more than the proper dorm rate. Had to talk to the staff to get the money refunded. Staff initially pushed one HB tour and didn't give us options to choose.

View Property Reply

Gordon,we have no idea why you said that after what we done for you. Do you think we try to get 20% more of $5? we not that idiot to do that in our business mate, it doesn't make us rick. I think you should thinking before what you want to write or say mate! We also did help you when you get Halong bay tour booking scam from the travel agency and also help you to get the new trip without fee on the great trip( your girl friend said), cheaper than other one and now you write down like that?

Even if you have the room booked for multiple nights, you are forced out of the room by 10am the next day. The owner is very agitated and made the experience unsettling. I had paid him for one day and he gave me a receipt. Later when I came back he said I didn't pay. I recalled to him at the time I paid that he had huffed and puffed about having to give change for 10,000 yen bill and he insisted I drum up the receipt. I searched every pocket and luckily found it and presented it to him.

Great place close to central Cusco. Beds and washrooms are clean and there is a nice courtyard to unwind from the day. The hostal is tucked into the back which requires you to go through a main courtyard giving great silence when sleeping at night. I'd highly recommend this place.
