the room was ok however it lacks of more care. the sheets although clean were torn in different places. the wi fi only works in the reception and that was not very confortable. breakfast was normal but basically only cakes.

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

We arrived at the airport with no reservations. A desk in the airport suggested this 3 star hotel and gave us a brochure which made it look acceptable. It is not acceptable and is not 3 star. 1 star is more like it. However, when we arrived it was pouring rain so we decided to try it for one night.... More

The best part about this place is the location...it is just a couple blocks from the bus station (where you can catch the bus to the falls), and is within walking distance to the restaurants in Iguazu. The TV is tiny and the room is dark, but otherwise adequate. When you shower, half the bathroom floor gets wet. There were... More

Pleasant stay.Clean and comfortable.Booked on the net and representative of pictures.Staff pleasant and tried to speak english.Very convenient location.The only down side which we thought quite funny was the remark by someone when we asked for a hairdryer was "it's not the presendential suite"! The evening buffet offered several choices(very inexpensive) and the morning breakfast (free)was basic fare I would... More
