    Luiz made us a lovely Caipirinha as a welcome drink and was such a good host! He made our stay really enjoyable. Lovely air conditioned rooms which is needed in the heat. Great location, just a few minutes walk from the bus station that takes you directly to the falls. Would recommend Hostel Katharina!

    Couldn’t have been better located! The staff were incredible. So helpful with getting outings organized for you, or anything really. Was totally blown away by the service! Clean, quiet rooms , nice guests and close to everything. Loved this place! Would recommend. Only downside is wifi is only really useable in the common area.

    We had a great stay at Hostel Katharina. Location was great with bus stop to Brazilian Iguaçu and Parque das Aves / airport opposite and very cheap. International stop to get to Argentinian side a short walk away. Luis was really helpful with staying up for us getting there late because of our flight for check in and was always on hand to give us advice where needed. Shower and room were cold which was unfortunate as we were there when it was cold weather but great apart from that!

    Perfect location. Bus stop in front takes you to main attractions. Room/toilet are simple but confortable. Breakfast was good and complete.. sandwich, scramble eggs and seasonal fruits along with juice and coffee/milk. Staff in general was nice helpful besides from the guy that at night behaving like he's in his own house with friends over every night, making noise and not being effectively "working" like the other ladies that were in the same shift. Nice bar environment with tables outside.

    We had a lovely stay at Hostel Katharina, the staff were very helpful in organising a tour to the falls on the Argentinian side. they allow you to change Reais for Pesos, however they don’t tell you about the R$50 fee they take (so we ended up just paying card at the falls once we realised this) The beds are EXTREMELY uncomfortable, you can feel every single wooden slat under you so we never had a good sleep. The bartender makes awesome drinks and the facilities are always clean which was nice

    Very Good

    I stayed in early December for five days and most of the time I was there, there were only one or two other people staying there. That was a big problem for the atmosphere. They offer a good tour to take you to the Argentinian falls for the day in a minibus which is better than getting the public bus yourself. The food at the hostel was nice and reasonably priced which was a bonus. Otherwise there wasn't much going on. They don't except card which is unusual in Brazil.

    The hostel itself is alright and nice for a few days. The only thing was that the staff wasn’t too friendly. We booked a bus to the Argentinian side and in the morning when we asked when we would leave they told us the bus got cancelled because the boarder was closed. So we took the public bus to the boarder and it was no problem at all to get there. This caused us unnecessary stress and time as we needed to continue our travels from Argentinia. We felt very badly treated.

    The staff are brilliant and so helpful! You even get a welcome drink which was great. The downstairs restaurant area is lovely. However, the bedrooms are incredibly cramped. We were in a 10 bed dorm which obviously is going to be an issue when full (not the fault of the hostel obviously), but the issue was made so much worse by the lack of space for anything. No lockers, and no stairs to climb to the top bunk. One toilet for 10 people is just not enough. Didn’t feel particularly clean.
