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

Katharina is a very nice hostel, similar to what you would find in an economy 3-star in most Europe cities, for US travellers, it might seem not as good. Located 1 1/2 blocks to the main bus station (to which you can get from airport by bus for USD 1.00 - bus takes reais and dollars by the way, but... More

Apparently i was the nicer one of the lot. No secure storage provided, the lockers were small in an office that the door was always opened. When i booked, breakfast... More

Upon arrival, Luis, the owner, transfered us to a different property two streets away from Katharina House. The room was nice, spacey, brand new, with a small kitchen, quite well decorated, but unfortunately located at the main street of Foz de Iguacu with a lot of traffic all day and all night, so not quiet at all! The owner made... More

We stayed for 2 nights, originally we booked a twin room as it was cheaper but when we got there the owner/manager bumped us up to a double for the same price which was really great. Walls are a little thin if your being picky but it didn't bother us. Free aircon and wifi. Shared bathrooms but we didn't mind... More

The hostel is only a 5 min walk from the local bus terminal and 2 mins from the town centre. We got a private room which was good value, clean and spacious. Luis and Maria were extremely friendly and helpful in all our many questions, suggesting good restaurants, cheaper onwards travel options and the best way to view the falls.... More
