We stayed at Katharina House for 2 nights. We booked a double room with ensuite and were given a huge room with additional beds. The staff were so helpful and we had a taxi booked for us at 4am and even a send off at that early hour! The hostel is really close to the bus station which makes it... More

I came to Iguazu with my 19 year old son and we stayed at Katharina House for 5 days. Everything was great: the room, the beds, the wifi, the food, the drinks and the music (at the bar). The host went out of his way to explain (or arrange) anything we wanted to know, from changing money to excursions to... More

We only stayed at Katharina House for two nights. The owner Luis, made sure that it was the most efficient, albeit relaxing time possible. Breakfast, blankets, tours, dinner tips... nothing was a problem! The day we left we went to the Argentinian side of Iguaçu for the day. Luis organised Argentinian pesos to pay for the park's entrance, the transport... More

We just wandered around the bus terminal and fell upon this place: it was reasonably priced and a good location( close to the center, the bus terminal , buses going to the national park and to the airport). The owner was helpful, and had the best prices for tours. He gave us our first taste of Brazil with caipirinhas, barbecues... More

Great location near the centre of town. Close to the local buses and supermarket for cheap buffet food and sandwiches. The road can be busy but the hostel is quiet and friendly. Large rooms with plenty of space. Staff are friendly and approachable and willing to help. The terrace is a good place to have a beer after a day... More

One of the most delicious pizzas I've ever eaten and I've had some good ones. A crust to die for and toppings that should make other pizza joints hang their heads in shame. And a very decent price as well. Luis is as helpful as anyone I've ever met in any hostel anywhere in the world and was quick with... More

I was happy to have chosen the Katharina House hostel. The owner, Luis, was very friendly and helped me out with everything. He made sure I had the best excursion to the waterfalls by explaining me all about how to do it. The shared room was very spacious and clean, had airconditioning and a clean bathroom. The bar in front... More

We stayed at Katharina House for three nights in a good value, spacious private room, with aircon and a shared bathroom which was cleaned daily. Luis, the owner couldn't have been more helpful.
