Helpful front desk staff, WiFi that worked most of the time, reasonably clean private room (can't comment on the dorms, which we did not enter), well-equipped and spacious kitchen, space to dry your laundry, and lots of hammocks and poolside tables to chill out at all hours. Our stay gave us three nights of reasonably comfortable rest; mattresses were decent... More

We only stayed one night here for which i was thankful. After fumbling through the check in with my terrible spanish we got up to our room which had no proper aircon but two large fans one of which didnt work and the other which was so noisy we coulnt sleep with it on. The shared bathroom had no lock... More

I first went to Poramba Hostel two streets away - there were many international young backpackers there. I changed to this one after Poramba doubled their prices over 3 days and this hostel did not. Well done. This hostel has a great kitchen, spacious, properly functioning, facilitated and clean. Better and moreover cheaper than Poramba. In comparison to Poramba, less... More

One of the best service during my trip. That surprised me because I hadn't had that service in BSAS. Excellent service (Yanina is really kind with clients), good location, clean, safe and quiet! Definitely, I recommend you this hostel!

Staff came into our room when we were not there and stole my friends ipad, we are pretty sure it was the owner that took it. There were other people stolen from the same day as well. They would not call the police so we had to do it ourselves and the owner just left and avoided the whole thing.... More

We came across this hostel walking by and decided to stay. The facilites are very nice with a pool, a BBQ and a nice big kitchen. We stayed in a triple dorm with one other person in the room with us, which for us was new, but fine. The dorm rooms cannot be locked which means especially to the ones... More

I myself work in a tourism industry and I'm not really the type of person who likes complaining, but this hostel SUCKS! 1) The stuff was not speaking English at all, which in nowadays hostels is a must (at least some basics) and was not helpful at all. To make it clear - I'm not spoiled English native speaker :P... More

Our room (no 7) had no natural light and was too hot. There was AC, but this was stuck at 23 degrees as the hotel did not have the remote. Also there were a couple of large cockroaches in the bathroom. The bedroom floor is also dangerously slippy as it is a similar tile to the bathroom - I had... More

This place is a hostel. As simple as that. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in while visiting the famous Iguazu Falls so this is a fair option. We ordered a double room. It was pretty specious but not at all clean. I've counted at least 2 dead bugs on the floor. Water in the shower... More
