Reviewed 19 June 2013

I had booked this hostel through hostelworld and was disgusted when I arrived. Outside is like a building site. Unfortunately I made the mistake of paying for the full night before seeing the rooms- the dorm had a glass door in to it that was all smashed and the door handle was falling off. There were bunk beds squashed against one another in a room full of mould all over the walls and ceilings. There were chunks out of the walls and doors. There were no lockers for luggage either. I took one look at the bathroom and decided I definitely could not stay there even for the one night! So I found the nearest decent hostel to it and booked in there for the night. DO NOT BOOK THIS PLACE

Dirty sheets (hair and dirt!!!), dirty swimming pool (leafs, plastic cup, cloudy water), broken tiles, ugly entrance (nothing to do with the main picture with a pretty wood cabin - no idea where that is! - I am attaching a picture of an actual entrance), dirty old kitchen.

So why am I giving it two stars?
Good location (5 minutes from bus terminal, 2 from a cab station), the staff treated us nice (let us keep bags in a room till 4:00pm) and the caipirina in their bar was great!

Tip: If you are going to Iguazu falls and are at least 3 person, take a cab, it's better and cheaper than bus. We paid 70 pesos (one way) thought the "official" price is 100.

Do not stay here. We paid for the more expensive 'better' private dbl room. It was terrible. The room stank, the sheets were dirty, the air conditioning didn't work properly. Outside the room is no better. The place looks like a construction yard, complete with rubbish lying around.

Worst of all, we were double charged as the reception wouldn't accept that we had paid the owner prior to arrival. They said we have to speak to him to get the online payment back. Needless to say, the owner's prompt replies before we stayed have dried up and he refuses to answer our emails.

I hope nobody stays here as they truly don't care and are ripping off tourists.

We stayed here with my wife for 3 nights in a private room. Did not leave the place finally as the location is good.

Everything else is terrible and we should have changed probably...
Shower and electricity fails to work time to time. The room was really dirty, no towels or toilet paper. They never cleaned during our stay. We rather used our own sleeping beds. The breakfast is poor and you find someting only before 8 o'clock.
The place is really noizy from the bar during the night, but obviously you can only bear this place drinking enough. There was a tv in the room but we never switched it on. It looked like someting from the 80s and the tv cable was pulled to the room trough the open window next to it. The airco was working when there was electricity, though it was loud. Do not recommend it at all.

One of the worst hostels i have seen in argentina. Big dead cocktroach under the beds, moulty walls and when i just wanted to lay down i saw à bedbug walking over the sheets... Enough reasons for me to leave that Same night. The receptionist didn't really care and was not planning to do anything about the bedbugs.. I went to hostel bambu, à really great and clean hostel!

The pool they have here is nice and extremely useful considering the heath in Puerto Iguazu. The breakfast they serve in the morning is really good, receiving eggs & bacon is a real plus. The beds could have been of a superior quality, but are in fact good enough for a few nights. The only true complaint I have was that the shower in our dorm didn't seem to work during the few days that I was there. Luckily there was another one somewhere else that we could use, so it didn't bother us that much.

First, you get a very old email as booking confirmation with wrong prices for local trips. People at receiption aren't really friendly (1 exception out of 4). Rooms and beds are not clean, seem like beeing unfinished and no lockers nor racks. A/C doen't work in every room. There is mold at the ceiling. The only good things are the central location and the very cheap prices. I would no one recommend this hostel.
