“Amazing- staff extremely helpful and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

Stayed here for two nights while visiting the falls- rooms were lovely, air conditioning was excellent. Facilities were of a high standard. Staff were extremely helpful, friendly and obliging. Only a 3 minute walk to the bus station which takes you to the falls. Would highly recommend it!

First I have to say it is a good hostel, the staff is very friendly and helpful. I did however get bed bugs there and that is super annoying you have to wash everything or throw everything away. They are hard to get rid off. Staff gave me the night for free and it might not be their fault but I feel obliged to warn other travelers

I stayed here for 2 nights, however the hostel was in pretty good condition.
The manager helped me find a bunch of amenities in the town (great town, great atmosphere)
and also helped me get one of the last Full Moon tours at the falls that I really wanted!
Rooms are good with cubby´s for your things. Washrooms were good and clean.

The atmosphere of the guests was a bit off, not very open to newbies, but the hostel itself was great! Good breakfast as well.

The staff is very helpful. I just asked about how one goes to São Paulo and right away the receptionist started calling around asking the prices with different bus agencies. I was there alone so I liked that the staff always said hello and remembered my name. The breakfast was good with the only good croissants I have had on my 7 months travel around South America. The rooms have real air condition and not just a fan! Lovely in the very humid heat. In the heat you can as well use the pool of another hostel nearby. Good location: close to the bus station and the center of the small town of Puerto Iguazu, and the bus to go to Brazil passes right by in front.
The only problem was the sewer problem which meant blocked toilets and there was a continuously lack of toilet paper the 3 days I stayed.

If you want to crash out at the end of the day obllvious to your surroundings this is the place for you. The hostel seems to be run by young men and their stantards tend not to be high. The computer is great but everything from there is downhill. I booked into the ten bed dorm and the mould stains on the ceiling creeping down the walls was enough to put me off, the bathrooms had probably been clean in the morning by by the evening when I arrived they put me off having a shower. My boyfriiend was arriving from England and we had booked a double room but when I looked at the bedroom the stain on the bedspread was enough for me to cancel the booking and move out the next morning. The staff working during the day were extremely helpful.

We stayed in a double room for 3 nights. The rooms were basic and clean, but could do with a new coat of paint, for the price of accommodation in Puerto Iguasso it represents good value.

The amazing thing about this hostel would be the staff, each morning they would ask us what we were doing for the day and would then help us with bookings, bus timetables etc (at no charge). They offered great advice regarding restaurants and cheap cafes. This as all done without prompting from us and appeared to be a genuine desire to be helpful, not to sell a tour or take commission from a booking.

The hostel also has a nice bar, a well equipped kitchen and is no more than a 5 min walk from the central bus terminal (which is the center of town and the transport hub for seeing the falls).

We stayed in a private room for two nights. The room was spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed. The level of service from the staff at the hostel was fantastic - they were very helpful in giving details of how best to get to the falls and happily booked us a taxi to the airport.

Breakfast was very very basic with bread, croissants, a bit of fruit and coffee. It was fine though. The wifi did not work well outside the common area and was pretty slow.

The proximity to town is great and when visiting the falls puerto iguazu is a much nicer base than foz do iguacu - safer, cleaner and generally prettier.
