The staff and the accommodations here are great. Simple, understated, but great for the thrifty traveler. I was here in December 2014 and would return. The desk staff was great. They had a 50 something woman one day that seemed like she didn't want to be bothered, but other than that, its a high recommend.

I stayed at the Los Helechos for 2 nights in November. Room was clean and had aircon and fan also TV. Plenty of hot water no worries. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very close to the bus stop for the falls and the town only few minutes walk. Breakfast was OK, just wish they would cover the food with something... More

Great location for bus coach station to the falls or for the centre of town. Nice rooms with good air conditioning. Nice outdoor space too. Breakfast was Ok but mainly consisting of cakes. Would recommend this place for anyone who is going to see the falls.

I would strongly advise anyone considering staying at hosteria Los helechos to rethink their decision. We arrived fairly late and only needed one night so were happy to opt for this budget option- with the benefit of hindsight I'd have rather slept on a homeless persons urine stained mattress. The hotel had no wifi, no hot water and no working... More

Great relatively "budget" stay in tourist-trap Puerto Iguazu. Tucked away in a local neighborhood from the main road artery and its large chain hotels. I cannot tell you how refreshing it was to be the only apparent foreigners in the hotel. It was amazing being immersed with the locals! Friendly smiling staff at reception. Nice large pool. Room was clean... More

We knew we had chosen a budget hotel, but I had major difficulties coping & enjoying our stay at Los Helechos. On arrival, despite having a reservation through our travel agent, the receptionist was extremely disorganised and wasn't expecting us (there were some issues about us apparently needing a 'voucher', which we didn't have, but didn't stop us from getting...

The positive about this hotel is that it is in a moderately quiet side street, and yet close to the bus station and several reasonably good restaurants as well as the central bus station, from where the falls and all else can be reached. But this is about where the positive ends. The hotel looks like nobody has thought of... More

Had to spend one night here as the brazilian consulate was closed for 2 days so our trip was pushed back. Had come from a beautiful B and B named Casa Yaguarete. It was 100 pesos cheaper and a million times better. Los Helechos was a complete rip off, unless you are paying 100 pesos for a double, its not... More
