The hostel is located 5 minutes from the bus terminal and next to an amazing restaurant (with open fire place). Therefore we would recommend the hostel. But if you prefer a calm double room or space in the bathroom, you should go somewhere else. The double rooms with privat bathroom are located around the communal area, which means you hear... More

Friendly little hostel in a rather boring little town, but a great place from which you can go and visit the beautiful falls. This is a nicer place to stay than the city on the Brazilian border. There was a hammock in the garden, I tried (and disliked) my first real maté here but really really loved the breakfas: churros... More

The staff are very friendly. It is well located down hill from the bus terminal. The breakfast was generous with bread, butter, lovely fresh orange juice, slice of orange cake !?, coffee, tea and slices of orange and avocado. If you are a couple avoid room 2 and go for room 4 (which is the photo in there advertisement). Our... More

The staff was incredibly nice and helpful to us, but we still cannot reccomend staying here. Our room was next to the lobby and the walls were so thin (like balsa wood) that we could hear every tiny little noise from the people in the lobby all night. We didnt really need to sleep in at all, but it would... More

After checking into a dorm room and paying for three nights upfront I informed the receptionist that for the first night I'll get a private room at a hotel over the road (Timbo had no private spaces) as I was feeling really unwell and didn't want to spread my germs. The next day I returned to find that someone was... More

Good location near the bus terminal and main street of restaurants. Breakfast was average quality but it was nice to have table service. Staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There was an air-conditioner in the room. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. The mattresses were very old and saggy. It had no windows, apart from to the... More

Booked at the last minute when we knew when we were going to be there. Close to the bus station, 2 min walk, also a bank is across the road, local amenities are within a short walk. Staff in the hostel were very helpful when asking about the Falls and The 3 Frontiers. The mixed bed dorm we were in... More
