Poramba Hostel, Puerto Iguazu, Argentina
7.7
7th Jun 2017

Poramba does enough to get an average rating. Feels like they do the bare minimum to provide a room. Few things they could improve - some knives in the kitchen, something more than bread for breakfast, and some info on how to do the falls (seriously the only reason anyone is in town!). Don't get me wrong the hostel is good value for money and we enjoyed our stay. But if they just did a few more things it could be a great hostel!

Amazing staff with great atmosphere. You can book what you need through them and by doing so we got a free nights accom. The beds are a bit hard and uncomfortable but hey this is a youth hostel!

I've stayed in hundreds of Hostels, and this is by far the best. It's not just the amazing view either! The staff are amazingly helpful and friendly, and you just feel like you are at home there. Please stay here!

Probably the loudest room I've ever stayed in with loads of street noise. Also toilets / showers pretty gross. However staff were amazingly friendly and helpful and the location was terrific.

CONS: 1. The staff on reception are RUDE. 2. Cockroach and big ants in my room. 3. My room didn't even lock, you could force the door open. 4. One night we were offered a 'free' tuk tuk to the bars, and then our driver practically assaulted us asking for money PROS: 1. Sensational bar and great atmosphere. 2. Good location 3. GREAT food and SUPER friendly kitchen staff. 4. What they do with profits to benefit under privileged kids. 5. Pretty sweet rooms with great air con.

Great hostel, clean big rooms, lots to do, and staff willing to help you plan your trip. Their Tuk Tuk drivers too were fantastic. Only downside is the atmosphere. Despite having a bar everyone sits at tables in their own groups and it is not conducive to meeting other travelers. Also they didn't organise any drinking / evening activities. So as a solo traveler that was a bit of a bummer. But overall LOVED it.

The staff here were awesome. They helped us with everything and didn't get angry when we book ed a tour through another company (our friends were doing it with them). Brekkie every morning was nice and they always had a smile for us. It's very near but not in the old quarter which to me is perfect - you can escape and relax at the end of a long day. HIGHLY recommended. They even upgraded me to the honeymoon suite for my last night - WIN!

A nice clean, centrally located hostel with super friendly staff. Only real bad thing was that it got hot in reception area. Rooms were fine though with super nice AC. The staff were AWESOME. They saw us leaving the Imperial City in the rain and dark and stopped on their scooter, called us a cab, and waited until it arrived so we got home safe and dry. UNREAL! Also we were on lock down for a day due to a typhoon and they sorted out meals for the whole day - and the food was GREAT!

Such warm welcoming and friendly staff that went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Makes such a big difference when you look forward to seeing the staff int he morning for a chat. Rooms were big, clean, and comfortable. Its a bit of a walk from the main area, but to be honest its nice to be away from the noise when you retire in the evening. And try the cafe 41 over the road - best spring rolls EVER!

The owners are AMAZING - will do everything they can to help you plan your stay and have a good time. Location is brilliant - right in the heart of the action down a cool laneway. Rooms were sweet. Only really downside was the fact that there wasn't much of a social area - but then in Saigon you walk outside and you can meet people everywhere!

Can't really say anything bad about this hostel. The staff were super friendly and the free walking tour was a great overview of the major sites.

This is the second Wombats hostel I have stayed at and they are clean, friendly and a great stay. They may lack a little atmosphere, however you can\'t go past them.
