Not completely fair because that wasn't due to anything the staff did but really enjoyed my stay. The staff was really really friendly putting up with my questions for nearly an hour. Breakfast was fine, and the wifi was great! Best reception I had in ages. Nice social areas including a bar and a swimming pool as well as a... More

This hostel is the best in the area and makes you feel at home and safe instantly with many activities and a great location. However, Taxis are required to the falls. Girls are beautiful here. There is a bar and swimming pool upstairs too which is great

This hostel was the most fun of any that I stayed at during my trip through Brazil and Argentina! Young, friendly staff, a fully stocked bar, a pool, and lots of games, plus a good location make this a must stay hostel for the area. The staff will help you book tours and direct you around town, but they also... More

Its just a Great hostel! If you are looking for a nice place to stay in iguazu choose bambu hostel. It still is one of my favorite hostels in South America. When I come back to iguazu I would stay there again.

During my research for my master thesis in Foz do Iguaçu I spend one of the first nights in this hostel while looking for a place to stay. Being in Brazil for the first time, the staff welcomed me in 'their' home. All of them are amazing and very welcoming and made me feel like I gained another home at... More

While traveling around Brazil for the World Cup, stayed at Hostel Bambu for two nights while seeing Iguazu Falls. Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the outdoor bar area was very nice, and if it hadn't rained the entire time we were there would have been a great place to relax by the small pool. Overall, I... More

Nice hostel, extremely clean for southern american standards. During our visit they were rebuilding the place, but there was no inconvenience whatsoever for us because of this. The terrace is amazing and I can especially recommend the brazilian hot dog dinner :)

Great hostel with great facilities. They have lots of rooms and lots of bathrooms as well, so there is no need to Queue even when the hostel is fully booked. The common area besides the pool where you can cook for yourself and have breakfast is spacious and invites to meet other People. Accordingly they have Events like a beer-tasting-evening,... More

Staff was really friendly and helpful. The bus stop for Iguazu Falls is about an 8 minute walk. Getting to the falls once you are on the bus was about 45 minutes, the bus goes to the airport first and then the falls. There's an HSBC bank about a 15 minute walk to the main street. Beds were comfortable and... More

Me and a few friends stayed a weekend at the bambu hostel during our visit to the iguazu falls and we were pleasantly surprised by the cost of the hostel and all of the facilities they had. It is a very fun atmosphere and they were very helpful in booking tours for the falls. Highly recommend this place if you... More
