We didnt enjoy our stay here. We were put in a very large room (good in some circumstances) but it was quite cold outside and raining and the room took forever to heat up...in fact it didnt. The hostel is reasonably clean, but there was no life to it... i would stay somewhere else if i returned. but i guess... More

A short walk up the street from the town bus station was a great start. Very helpful people to help us with tours and transport away. There's a bus stop right out the front which has the normal public bus that takes you to the Brazil side of the falls. It was a bit quiet when we were there due... More

We literally just showed up on their doorstep hoping they had room for us - luckily they did because it was a great hostel. Only downsides I can think of is the breakfast was a bit expensive in my opinion considering we didn't get much... oh and the beds didn't have blankets, we had to ask reception. VERY close to...

We had originally booked another hostel, but couldn't find it anywhere and stumbled upon this on our way from the bus station, deciding to stay in the dormitory at 30 reals a night (10 euro). Luis was a great host and made us feel very welcome. When my friend left, he even made me a special cocktail on the house... More

I hadn't booked a hostel in advance since I was only planning to stay one night but I stumbled across this place mainly because it was so close to the bus station. And it turned out to be perfect! Staying on my own, the staff were great at making me feel welcome and were able to provide all the local... More

We arrived in Foz do Iguacu without a hotel booking and stumbled upon Katharina House as it was near the bus station. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast in the morning was also excellent. We organized our tours to the falls and onward bus tickets through the hostel and everything was spot on. Luis, the owner,... More

My husband and I arrived with another couple. Luis was able to accommodate for both couples. My husband and I took a private room which was roomy and very clean. We had a shared bathroom which was always clean! The communal area downstairs was really nice with good internet (not much connection in the room but Luis was honest and... More

Great hostel a few minutes walk from the bus station. The owner, whose name I have forgotten, sorry, is great! He organizes daily tours to the waterfalls and is very informative about things to see, getting to paraguay, argentina and so on. We took the tour to the Argentinian side of the falls and it all went very smoothly. The... More
