“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

It is basically a student hostel, though there were a few older guests, most guests were in their early 20-30s
Pros: LOCATION, it is across the street from the bus terminal which gives you direct bus access to the national parks in both the Argentine and Brazilian sides, and also next to good restaurants and stores
Cons: As a cheap youth hostel, the amenities are sub-par (our toilet had flushing issues, and shower head was broken), and internet connection is shaky at best (most of the time our internet did not work), there are two computers in the lobby that are extremely slow and usually taken by guests.

This hostel is very nice, with big green areas and spaces for recreation. Nice breakfast. Excellent location with the bus station just across the street and a buffet restaurant. Wifi wasn't working the night i stayed in, that was a little bit annoying. Apart from that everything was fine!

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting the falls and it was totally fine. Best thing is location - it's right opposite the bus station which makes getting to both sides of the falls very easy. Also close to cheap restaurants.

The rooms were clean and so was the linen, plus each dorm has it's own bathroom attached. Bathrooms had hot water but were very run down and a bit grubby. We ended up staying an extra night so experienced two different rooms - the first had one socket for 6 people which was not good, but the second didn't have this problem.

The pool is currently out of order which was a bit annoying but no big deal. The wifi is very hard to connect to but once connected it's fine. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

Note you can only pay in cash but they had no change!

Overall it's fine, not the best but cheap and well located and for those going to the falls for just a couple of days I would recommend it.

The hostel is located of the bus terminal, from where you arrive, depart and Transfer to the falls. Down the street you find Restaurants and bars. The People at the reception will help you to orientate yourself and will book tickets to the falls for you (not more expensive than booking for yourself).
I slept in a dorm and was satisfied with cleanliness and the facilities Overall. Breakfast was good.
I can highly recommend this hostel for travellers with a Budget but some expectations as well!

Worst hostel I've stayed at in a long time. Staff unfriendly and reluctant to assist us. Bathrooms dirty, pool had no water and 'bar' had no beer. Look elsewhere if you want to enjoy your time in Iguazu

We stayed 2 nights while visiting the falls and are overall positive about it despite the strange policy around the exchange rate

Good points;
Helpful staff, most with very good bilingual skills
Big rooms, lockers built in
Mosquito nets in good repair on the windows
Very good location

Bad points;
The policy is to use 9pesos to the dollar as their charging rate so when we were quoted in US dollar they then used that to convert it to peso. The actual rate was 8.2 the day we arrived but they insisted it was policy that it's always done at. 9. I doubt if the rate increased beyond 9 that policy would stay in place.
The swimming pool is more of a plunge pool and needs a clean
