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

This is a truly wonderful hostel for bavkpackers. The staff are so lovely and helpful, the breakfast is great for how cheap the rooms are and the rooms are large and perfectly nice. The outdoor space has a small but lovely pool and hammock and the kitchen is well equipped. Really nice, friendly and relaxed vibe. Been travelling for 3... More

First of all the hole hostel is mold infested and we really mean the hole hostel and it smells like this. (see Pic.) The second point is that the mattresses are older than old and I got a rash from sleeping there. We do not understand why this hostel got so many positive reviews and also a Tripadvisor recommendation sticker,... More

Overall, this is a great place to stay although the room had LOTS of mold. So, if you are allergic, avoid this hostel. The folks, however, were fantastic and had lots of good advice and information. Moreover, location is absolutely fantastic. The kitchen isn´t huge, but it is adequate. Again, overall, great place--except the mold....

Stayed here for the past two nights while visiting the Argentinian side of the falls. Was very impressed with how helpful the staff were and how clean and nice the hostel was. Breakfast was very good also.
