Only stayed here because our other B&B had no room for our last night. Glad it was just the one night but it wasn't the worst place I've stayed. It was in a great central location near to restaurants and supermarket. Our room was night and bring but there were just too many creepy crawlies around the place - I... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, in a comfortable double room. Hot shower and fantastic breakfast included. The best part was definitely the manager, he was extremely helpful in giving us tips on visiting the falls, booking tickets on our behalf (at the exact same cost as buying them onsite), and helping us organize transport to get across the border...

Luis is a delight of an owner. So very helpful during my short stay there. Without him I would have missed my bus to Florián. Really caring guy and has all the knowledge you need to plan your Iguazú trip. The hostel has a great vibe too. Live music in the front courtyard as people walk by. Beaut.

I think this is one of the best hostels we have ever stayed in. The rooms were nice and the bathrooms look new. There is a really nice terrace in front of the hostel where you can eat very good pizza and drink amazing capirinhas! But the best thing is the great help of Luis, the owner. He went out... More

The location is very central in terms of the city downtown. Only a minute away from the local bus terminal. Only a minute away from downtown shops. However there is no kitchen - big minus for a backpacker. Also strangely, breakfast is not included free. Because of the lack of kitchen, I felt a little bit at a loss since,... More

Failed to get a face-to-face discussion with Luis the owner of Katharina House on two occasions to complain about four of us being left stranded at the Iquazu falls, on the Argentina side, after a 9 hour visit. This occurred after we missed our rendezvous time by half an hour. Afterwards we left a note at his office, however can't... More

We came to the Katharina bar for a drink and it was lovely. The owner came straight over and had a chat with us and told us more about the area and the hostel - great guy! I highly recommened booking your visit to the argentinian side of Foz de Iguazu with Katharina House - they bring you there and... More

Got a capirinha for free :)) + nice entrance area (also a bar) + clean facilities. Bad (therefore 4 from 5) : - very thin matrasses. Really... More

The actual hostel isn't anything special, the room was basic, the beds a bit of a worry if they would hold another person on the top bunk (luckily our room was just us as we went in low season) and the bathroom door was broken. The wifi also didn't work in our room and there was no breakie or even... More
