Reviewed 28 July 2014

The hostel is ok, it's quite big but has no appeal at all. It feels a bit like a hospital. The staff are terrible they don't want to help you at all, the pool is dirty, it doesn't look like it ever gets cleaned. Please don't stay here, maybe the staff will learn to be a bit more respectable.

Me and my wife stayed for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon excursion throughout the region. From check-in to check-out, the service was fantastic, with most of the desk staff able to speak Spanish, Portuguese and English, if not more. Photos of many hostels tend to be misleading, but this place is even nicer in person, we were impressed.

Susana checked us in and made us feel extra welcome from the very first minute. Knowing it was our honeymoon, she arranged for us to have a really nice room (#6), in the corner, with two walls of ceiling to floor windows with a view that offered privacy with the trees below and the sky above, ideal for admiring the thunder and lightning that was scattered throughout the three days. She and the staff also helped us exchange money and was very pleasant and helpful during our stay.

The wifi works well, the kitchen is cheap and tasty and there's plenty of assistance available to plan your stay and get around the town and park. The other guests at the hostel were very friendly as well, all with cool stories of their own. The room itself was basic but scored high marks for the only two things we really cared about, awesome shower and comfortable bed. Other reviewers noted the nightly noise on weekends, but its more of a light rumble and didn't bother us. I hear the Sheraton is pretty quiet for $400/night.

We want to thank Susana and the awesome staff at the Hostel Inn for making the Iguazu leg of our journey truly memorable. Muchas gracias, muito obrigado and thank you all very much!

Room Tip: Singles can stay wherever, but couples should request room #6 or the one directly across from it, ei...

We stayed three nights at Hostel Inn Iguazu in a private double with bathroom. The place is huge, biggest hostel we've seen to date. Outside is a large pool area, inside a huge open pan space with dining area and sofas, internet etc. Our room was in the main building behind reception.

Our room was a decent size, well equipped and warm. The bathroom was decent too and the shower warm. At night it was pretty noisy, we could hear everything amplified, even the ping pong table. In the morning they start the musics from 7:45. So our sleep wasn't perfect.

The restaurant is pretty good, we enjoyed the simple but well made fare for a couple of evening meals. Staff were in general very helpful. Breakfast buffet is simple: bread and spreads with hot water, coffee etc.

Wi-fi was a bit slow. Laundry service is not available on rainy days.

Room Tip: I'd avoid room 1, get further away from the main area to reduce the noise.

This hostel was so much fun. the staff were really friendly and made sure we made the most of our time in Iguazu. There is also a really cosy film room which is nice for some time away from hectic hostel living.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities were good. Even has a pool (which I didn´t use cos of the weather).

Hostel also located conveniently next to the main road where the buses go to the falls and to town.

However, the beds are not comfortable, shower sometimes do not have hot water and it just wasn´t the cleanest place. Probably due to the weather conditions, there was a lot of condensation on the walls and floor in the room making it wet and damp. So when you walk around you just leave muddy footprints all over.

The main light in my room was also not working so we had to just put up with the darkness at night and early morning...

There are definitely better places out there.

The shared rooms are not comfortable, some have broken windows, the room doors are noisy and it is not possible to lock them up. They just clean every 2nd day (garbage...) The shower has warm water but just for one person. The wifi doesn't work if the are more persons online. The staff is friendly but sometimes not really helpful with local information. The guest kitchen, where you can cook by yourself, has not enough equipment: no knifes, no tin opener, no lighter (gas oven) etc.!

We stayed here two nights and we had a great room that was really comfortable, and the bathroom was great too. The main building is impressive, with a lovely open plan setting and food options were great, as was the pool. The staff were a bit hit and miss- some were really helpful others weren't so much. The location is great for getting to the falls, but there is nothing else nearby at all so limited options for going out and about. There was no cash machine facilities which would really be helpful!
