Don't do it. It's a slum! Dirty sheets, blocked toilets, cold showers, filthy kitchen and a lovely $90 US cancellation fee when you get there and try to pull out! There are so many better places in beautiful Iguazu to give this place your money is a big shame. All the other reviews are right, except the one that gave... More

We booked the hostel online, 5 people in a dorm room. The reservation was confirmed by email. We arrived late, 7 in the evening. When we arrived we were told that my reservation didnt come through, but they did know my name and had all my details. They told us they would find another hostel, same price, same services. We...

A dirty fleapit does not go far enough to describe the filthly state of this hostel. On the plus sides it is ideally located about 3 minutes from the bus station and it does have WiFi. However very rusty disposable razors and blades on top of the communial bathroom cabinet, room bins overflowing on arrival and bedding that was stained,... More

We spent two expensive (AR260) nights in this place. Our room (a private double plus single) was cramped and dark but reasonably clean. The window opens onto a common area between the kitchen and front yard so we had to keep the shutters closed for privacy. The shared bathroom was disgusting. Clumps of hair in the shower, mouldy shower curtain,... More

The hostal is 5 min from the busterminal, thats nice we had a double room which was small, but ok, El guembe is amongst cheaper hostals in Iguazu (where all places are more expensive than at less touristy places, naturally...) its kind of like - everything at the hostal is a bit broken, still working but a bit broken (doorhandle,...

We made a reservation through hostebookers for the El Guembe Hostel House, after 24 hour bus journey we arrived at the hostel and were advised that there was no room or dorm available and the only one they had was in the their other one: El Guembe hostel. When we saw the place we demanded our money back straight away,... More

There are 2 hostels in Iguazu with the same name, both apparently owned by the same person. This review like most of the other ones applies to the one in Av. Guarani and it is 2 blocks from the bus station. Lots of things in the hostel are broken, toilet seats, ceiling fans and the paying guests fridge being the... More

The hostel is located literally 2 blocks from the main bus station. It is equipped with a small swimming pool, garden and space for bbq. The furniture in the room appeared to be slightly battered and the door has a large gap, but the room was clean and tidy. Breakfast modest, but hostel stuff is very nice. Overall impression, modest... More

We booked a dorm and a private room and when we arrived we were told no private rooms existed. The hostel was also filthy. Avoid at all costs.
