The Bambu hostel is a great location to stay on the Brazilian side of Iguacu. It offers a lot of common rooms and a breakfast with eggs and sausage included. Also the staff is friendly and gave good hints on how to see the waterfalls best. What was bad was that there are a lot of mosquitoes in the rooms... More

Stayed here as part of our trip to the falls and on our way through South America. As with the other reviewers the staff were very helpful and friendly during our stay (with the exception of one older lady who was quite rude and obviously wasn't really interested, but not enough to ruin our stay). The accommodation was good standard... More

There are 3 Bambu hostels in Foz De Iguasu itself so yes, its a little confusing. But all are as good as the others. And run by the same team, just different owners. When we stayed there, there was a pool side party at one of their hostels and all the guests got free invites. They even managed to make... More

Very nice and helpful staff. Comfortable and clean room (we stayed in a private room with common bathrooms), the common parts were clean as well. The kitchen and the bar with the pool on the rooftop are amazing ! Convenient location, close to restaurants and to the bus stop to the waterfalls and the airport.

tl;dr-best hostel ever, best staff, stay here and you won't regret it Absolutely one of the best hostels I've stayed at in Brazil. The hostel is very clean, spacious, and feels like home. I stayed in a 5 person mixed, which was a little small, but the bigger dorms were just remodeled and they looked great. Outlets next to every... More

The first thing we recognised when we arrived at Bambu Hostels was that we immediately felt very sheltered and comfortable. At once the staff included all of us into their party as we've been joining them at the poolside or having a relaxing barbecue together. All of the employees, who were all willing to make us have the best possible... More

This was the best hostel I stayed in during my trip to Brazil. We saw the falls together, sat at the bar together, and drunkenly swam in the pool together. The staff were always involves, as if they were also travellers there for the first time, yet still helpful with all the boring admin. It is exactly as advertised and... More
