We stayed for 4 nights at this hostel and it was nice. The staff is friendly and speaks english. They give you better advice than at the information center (where we didn't find anyone speaking english). The place is relatively clean, the swimming pool area is great to hang around at the end of the day. The rooms are quite... More

Rooms were clean, it was so quiet when I was there I had a 4 bed dorm to myself. Staff were very friendly and well informed on things to do most notably the falls (and also where to change blue dollar) Breakfast was good and communal so ok for meeting fellow travellers/tourists. Pool is tiny and didn't look too appealing... More

Poramba is good for a one or two night stay, although I felt it was expensive for what you get, it is still one of the more reasonable places in town. While the rooms are not the most comfortable, they are clean, the air-con (which you ask staff to switch on for you from the front desk) was really cold... More

We stayed for 3 nights in early February. Traveling as a couple we decided to mix up private with mixed dorms and here went for mixed. Room was very basic but clean and had powerful aircon, which was great. The morning we arrived we were very unluckily bitten by a group of dogs a few streets away from where we... More

the 3 point rating is for me very solid and I can recommend this place without a doubt. This place is not for you if you want to retreat and be by yourself, as it is not a big location and most rooms are facing the pool. I found the hostel clean, the staff very friendly, located close to the... More

I stayed here for several days and I liked the very relaxed ambience here. The staff were all friendly and helpful answering all my questions, and the breakfast was great. The pool is pretty nice for a cool off as well.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Also the breakfast is delicious. It is a 5min walk to the center and the bus terminal. The room is rather small and not clean. The bathroom is not furnished with a curtain, but its ok. The water in the plug hole had a strong smell that was distributed in the whole room,... More

The hostel is great from the moment of arrival. Puerto Iguazu can be hot and humid in the summer, but the hostel offers a pool to cool you down. The staff is very friendly and helpful with what to do in the Iguazu area. Also it has one of the most complete breakfasts of any hostel I have stayed in... More

We were worried initially as the bus driver who bought us made a bad face when we told him we were staying at Poramba. But when we arrived the staff (Diego & Gaston) were very helpful and polite. Gave us all the advice we needed with regards to the town and the falls. The hostel is basic (so don't expect... More
