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

OK, so the two good things are the location and the breakfast - as other ls have posted too. However, the negatives left us feeling completely underwhelmed and dissatisfied: - We arrived when we said but were kept waiting almost 40 minutes for our room to be ready. - The bathroom (ensuite) was disgusting - Water was tepid at best...

The location of this hostel is very good but the room we had was dirty and the matrasses were a nightmare. Also the shared bathroom was old and dirty. Staff was friendly but not very helpfull. Internet was good and breakfeast was simple. Prices were low but I would not recommend this hostel.

I'll start with the negatives: The wifi refused to connect to our devices (but there was a computer in the lobby which you could use) The room smelled slightly moldy (but was greatly improved by the air-conditioning) Two bathrooms for everyone without en-suite bathrooms But there were a ton of positives: Very cheap (60 pesos per person per night -...

I've read quite horrible reviews about this hostel and it is not that awful! It's far from great however. There is a nice swimming pool and a breakfast with home made cake , juice, bread ... Basic but enough The girls at the réception are very nice and helpful. The rooms are ok, but our smelt a bit mold. They... More
