This is a great value hostel in a great location - ideally placed to easily see the falls from both sides. Lovely atmosphere and some nice chill out areas, especially the bar. Staff are really friendly and will help with trips / advice on where to eat / picks ups etc. Stayed in the private room with own bathroom, which... More

Like any terrible experience staying at Favela Chic leaves its imprint, an indelible mark on your trip that allows an unspoken connection with other travelers and membership to a special group of hardy souls. Emerging from the doors after a troubled sleep you'll forever have a look in your eye, a look that says you've been there, you "watched roaches... More

Good location for visiting both sides of the waterfalls. Friendly staff that arranged our bus tickets to buenos aires and gave us great tips. The English owner wasn't much around, but the other guys spoke enough English to make themselves clear. Lovely outdoor area where we turned on the BBQ 2 days in a row and also relaxed in the...

The owner was very friendly and helpt as with booking our tours there and pointing out some nice restaurants in the neighbourhood. The hostel has a nice hippie vibe to it and is located well, only 20minutes from the falls / airport and the borders of argentina and paraguay. The only negative comments; is was raining when we left, and... More

So this place has a really unique vibe too it, in that it feels kinda roughed up, but still charming at the same time, almost like you're camping, but indoors, hard to describe. Very open air feel to the place. Bathrooms need work, and most things could definitely be newer. That said, the ambiance and atmosphere was one coolest I've... More

My husband and I came here and stayed in the converted van (just for the fun of it). I thought we were supposed to have our own bathroom in the back of the lot but it seemed more and more that people would go there to do their business that would take a long time..... Annoyingly people were always in... More

With the colourful gate a door opens to step from the random side street into a magical and unique oasis! The mingle of pure nature and art is the perfect surrounding to relax and reflect upon the beautiful adventures of iguacu while the various hammocks, arm chairs and couches as well as the football table and the hostel bar offer...

This hostel has great location especially if you want to experience the diffrent landmarks, such as the iguazu falls.The breakfast is good with yogurt, bread, fruits and sometimes a little extra. The owner is really helpful and goes the extra mile when it comes to service, for example he gave us a ride to the center when needed. Overall a... More

Had a great stay, plenty of fun. A few weird experiences: large sexual tension between 2 members of staff, saw a guest taking a wet poo right outside, great info from the staff boring though, another guest kept falling off his bed and got some horrible bruises, lastly on my last night I awoke to a weird girl putting her...

We stayed some days in Nov 2013. I loved this hostel that much, that I still remember it now (after sooo many other hostels). It is clean and so colorful. The staff is very helpful and friendly - always smiling. To stay at their bar is a pleasure. As it is a relatively small hostel you get easy around with... More
