    5 minute walk from the bus station, sandwiched between 2 great churrascarias and a good bakery, the location is perfect. there is a great inside/outside bar, the staff are friendly and there is a cool cat - far too smart to be a 'hostel'! would definitely stay again, many thanks

    Great place, awesome owner, cold beer and a very short walk from the bus station and a bus stop. They cook in house and there are lots of good restaurants nearby. Definitely recommend and would stay again.

    I chose this hostel solely on the fact that it’s very similar to my own name I didn’t check the reviews or anything. Well I wasn’t disappointed. I had been very sick in my previous hostel and the owner could tell straight away and looked after me. The next day the owner helped me arrange a trip to the Waterfalls as it was my first time in Brazil this was very useful. The hostel dorms are clean and the bed are comfortable. The restaurant and bar area are great and serve nice food & drinks.

    We had a very good time in hostel Katharina! The terrace was beautiful and the vibe was great. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the caipirinha (included!). The location is perfect: very close to the bus station, not far from the center. The owner was very friendly and helped us organizing our trip to the falls and booking our bus to the pantanal. He even helped us booking our stay there, which was great as well. We would definitely recommend this!

    We really enjoyed our stay in hostel Katharina. Especially the staff was great, they where very funny and gave us a lot of tips. The owner was a great guy and did really add something to the 'chill' atmosphere. Breakfast was simple yet delicious. The room was a bit outdated but was definitely good enough. Would recommend!

    Great for a short break to visit the waterfalls. No self catering facilities but a cheap bar/restaurant and a good fruit platter at breakfast. The hostel manager has lots of helpful advice about trips out to the falls and a shuttle bus helpfully leaves the hostel to the Argentinian side of the falls daily.
