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 -...

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

I booked into this hostel after having a pretty mouldy experience in another hostel nearby and I was hoping for a good nights sleep and a hot shower. They were pretty helpful when I arrived letting me check in at 9am as the room was ready. The girl didn't speak English, but I don't speak very good Spanish so can't... More

The hostel is extremely dirty. The room smells of damp walls. There are plenty of blood marks of dead insects on the wall, and for me the worse is bed linen. So dirty, we were thankful we had sleeping bags with us. The bathroom was even worse, the smell was amazing. We had to give up and pass on shower.... More

Sinc it's one of the cheapest in Iguazu, it was a good hostel. There's a pool for when it's too hot and air conditioning in the rooms. It's not that clean though and breakfast is average, like anywhere else but white a homemade cake. I really disliked that we had to wait the whole day for our bus after check... More

Stayed here for three nights, met up with my brother for reunion. He booked a private room in advance and there was no room left in the dorm so I could stay in the private room (which had three beds) with my brother. The location is good, just a block away from the busterminal and on the way there is... More

Stayed 3 nights. Had water on the floor on the 2nd day coming from the outside. Everything (house, rooms, furniture etc.) was very old with some bits broken. Reception doesn't speak English. Bus station not far and bars and restaurants are close by. Air-conditioning was a blessing. Breakfast very basic. Wouldn't come back.
