This is a really nice hostel -plan your trips from there ! The location is AWESOME. I paid roughly 10 Usd a night for a 6 bed dorm. Good: + very helpful stuff. 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...

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
