“One of the best hostels we have been in brasil!!”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Great service and a nice living zone inside the hostel. Very new and clean rooms.
The owner makes you feel comfortable all the time and she helps you booking the daytrips to the falls!
All in all a wonderful place!
If we come to brasil again, we will come to green house again!

In January 2013 we had a very nice time at the Green House Hostel. The staff was very nice (especially Grasiela). Our apartment was very clean and the sweet breakfast was a good start before visiting the Iguazu waterfalls. The garden and the pool at the Green House Hostel are good opportunities for recreation. It’s the optimal place for backpackers and individual travellers. We totally recommend staying there. Best wishes from Vienna.

We stayed here during Easter and was very satisfied with Green House! It is nice, clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is included in the price and its good. The hostel has a relaxing garden with a swimmingpool and also a very nice balcony on the second floor overlooking the garden. Stayed in a 8 people dorm, was ok. One minus - could have had more bathrooms. It tends to get crowded when 8 girls are using the same shower.

Also its only a short walk to busstopp (to the falls) and the main street with some pubs and restaurants! Would stay there again.

Good hostel to stay in if you're visiting the falls from Brazil. Location is great just 5 min walk from the bus stops to the falls and a huge supermarket. Dorm was comfy with a big bathroom and had air con that you could use all day which is nice. Two well equipped kitchens, a pool, excellent wifi and plenty of chill out areas. Breakfast is standard - fresh papaya, bread, jams, cheese, ham, coffee and tea and sometimes cake. Reception were very friendly and helped to organise tours to Argentina for the falls and give you maps and info on how to get to other places in town. Pretty quiet hostel so a good place to come if you want some peace and quiet. I would recommend this place.

I'm a born traveler and I can say with full knowledge from experience that staying at Green House Hostel was a very pleasant experience. I really recommend this place. The price is affordable and I could pay with a credit card what is not accepted in many hostels in the city.
The location is quiet and close to many conveniences.
On arrival, I was greeted by smiling staff, who apologized immensely for being without internet connection at the time, due to some repairs, which is totally understandable,( it could happen anywhere). The internet problem was solved shortly.
Grasiela, at the reception, was extremily polite and welcoming. I realized she was like that with all guests, making them feel very welcomed and at ease. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean . In the garden there is a barbecue grill, a nice pool, comfortable chairs and fruit trees at the back of the yard where I could enjoy some fresh fruit, picked up by myself (I was lucky to be in the season of ripe fruit). I had the opportunity to meet interesting people and made good friends.
On the second floor of the house there is a terrace with hammocks and couches, perfect for a good rest and read your favorite book, overlooking the pool.
Indeed, the hostel looks more like a large house where the family gathers and you are there to have fun. .
Congratulations to the whole team and thank you for everything.
Hope to see you again on my next visit to Foz do Igaçu.
Best regards.
Jackson

Green House is 100% recommended. The attention is excellent, with a very good breakfast. The kitchen is open so you can cook, lunch and dinner. The bedrooms with air-conditioned are very good for the heat in the city. There’s a beautiful swimming pool for you to enjoy surrounded by trees and a beautiful garden, it’s very nice to be there. You can also have fun playing billiard, cards, chess, singing in the karaoke near the bar or watching television, and you have free access to Wi-Fi, if you do not bring a computer there is one there to use. Everything very nice and the girls are very friendly. We had an amazing time here and we felt like home! You have all the amenities you need. =)

We probably had a terrible luck, but I have to say Evade this place.
They had no internet or wifi, so they didn't had our booking. Apparently they don't have internet at home or on the phones or internet cafes. The receptionist didn't share Any information about the hostel or town. We stayed in a double room, next door. We access trough a little door on the backyard. The Room was just ok. Noisy A/C, few bugs, they forget toilet paper & one sheet from our bed. It was a shame that it was next to the parking area so we hear cars often & there where workers on our Roof everyday starting at 7AM! so we had really early mornings. You have to rent towels just 3Reals but we get old see-through towel! Breakfast was quite poor for brazil & one day was nothing at 9:30am (30' before it finish). The house was big & green, with a big swiming pool, it's a shame that the water was quite dirty. But all this can be not really important if the place had a nice staff. well, they don't. The morning receptionist aparently had a bad day everyday. Didn't help with any information & coz it was no internet she recommend google stuff at the internet cafe (10blocks). it was also a internet games place. Her most common answer was "I don't have that information" (!)
the location on some internet booking sites was wrong, we just realize once there, too bad.
The owner was smiling & happy but when you know that all the bad sides are her fault... well, it feels all fake...
It is a shame because the city is great, the hostel is a bit far from everything (except a big supermarket) & the house is big & cozy.
we where not happy at all & hope our experience help some further travelers to choose better.

Room Tip: be sure you are Not staying on the next door place. IT's terrible.

Dear guest,
Thank you very much for your comments and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenient you related during you stay. We have discussed all the points you mentioned on the review with all the staff members, especially with the morning receptionist, which is in charge for the breakfast and the morning shift.
We are improving our service day by day. We care very much about guests’ comfort, quality, cleaning, organization, details in general and good quality sleep. We are going to be more carefully about little things. Regarding the swimming pool it is treated every day and cleaned every other day.
The location announced in the websites is from Google website.
I would like to invite you back to the Hostel Green House in order to revert this bad impression you had during your stay.
Sincerely,
Grasiela
