“Excellent hostel, relaxed helpful great atmosphere.”
Reviewed March 26, 2011

Katharina hostel is probably one of the best hostels i have stayed in, it meets all the criteria you need from a good hostel and more....its very clean, they do an excellent breakfast including lots of fresh fruit, there is a kitchen although they do a great bbq in the evenings with excellent in house entertainment-you have to stay here to find out why...It wont dissapoint !!! The staff and owner louis are very friendly and helpful. They will give you all the info about the falls, arrange for you to get there. Its in a good location and there is a bus stop right accross the road. Cant say enough good things about this place.

I ve done a trip from the north to the south of brazil (Recife, Maceio, Salvador, Rio,...) and this is the best hostel where I stayed. It has similar standard with europe, is clean, no holes in the walls, the furnitures were nice and not broken. The room was big and bright with 2 big windows. The common area is excellent, the bar allow you to meet also people that don't stay in the hostel, and is a big resource if you are thirsty in the middle of the night because there s always someone ready to give you a fresh beer.
The hostel is 20 mt from the bus stop, so you can take the bus to go to the falls (argentina and brasilian side) and to Ciudad de leste (Paraguay) very easy. The hostel can send a taxi to pick you up at the airport, it s a great service and at the beginning of 2011 it costed 40R$. The hostel organized also a trip to the argentinian side.
I strongly recommend to go there.
