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

Clean hostel with very helpful staff. The barbecue dinner at the hostel was nice, and we allways felt really welcome. The bus to Iguazu falls and Itaipu stops tight outside the hotel and only cost 3 R$ to both. We enjoy or stay here and recommend it for anyone travelling to Foz de Iguacu.

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...
