All round good hostel. Nick (owner) and Pablo make you feel very at ease. A home away from home. We initially planned to stay for one night and get a bus the following afternoon. Nick kindly let my friends and I stick around until our bus later that afternoon. When the bus was full we head straight back to Favela... More

Tudo Bem... Best Chilling sessions ever... The garden, the pool, the host... THE HAMMOCK por favor (I've past like 5 days in this hammock and it was perfect...) Very close to the bus and with facilities to go to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world (Argentine side and Brezilian side too). The host is gonna make you... More

I enjoyed my stay here. The communal garden is very chill - lots of hammocks, sofas for a relaxing time. Most people are out at the falls all day, but it does get a bit more lively in the evenings. The staff are friendly but NEVER around - I know they have a lot of problems with people not paying.... More

Situated in possibly the most convenient position for catching a bus to most places in Foz, but most conveniently the bus to the falls themselves! I arrived exhausted but felt immediately welcomed into this unique hostel and spent three restful nights there. The atmosphere was very nice no matter how many or few guests where around on any particular day.... More

Favela chic is run by al lovely, charming couple. It's a story of an Englishman in Brazil traying all he can to make this a great place (out of passion). He and his wife happen to have bad luck in the past, circumstances beyond one's control, but survived all this with a super cool hostel as a result. Our stay... More

The staff at this hostel are very friendly and helpful. It is a really good value, but the beds and facilties aren't the best. The beds are small and close together, so you can't sit up on the bottom bunk of the bunkbeds and there is no ladder to get to the top bunk (which is rickity anyway). If you... More

Loved the atmosphere, they put on BBQs and activities at night it feels like a family, staff were extremely friendly and helpful in booking all of our activities at the falls. Hostel is very close to the bus stop. Would definitely stay here again!! Only negative is no bathrooms outside the rooms.

I would definitely recommend this hostel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was nice and the hostel's interior and decoration is absolutely unique. I stayed for two nights and had nothing to complain about :) It is the perfect hostel for backpackers since it is not expensive at all.

The only redeeming thing about this hostel was one of the staff who was super helpful and friendly - and helped me book my ongoing bus. Otherwise, not a great place. Dorm was cramped, and the bed was tiny. Once I had checked in I went out for the day to the falls, only to come back and find someone... More

A fun hostel with great paintings etc all over the walls. Staff have an incredible Stuart and owner Nicholas have an incredible knowledge of all available tours for the falls and Itaipu Dam and will arrange everything for you. A good bar is at the end of the road along with a bus stop which links to all main attractions... More
