“the perfect spot”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Quiet but friendly, scrambled eggs for breakfast, close enough to the centre of town to walk for buses and dinner and things, beee-autiful tropical garden with hummingbirds, yes hummingbirds :-), a fantastic little swimming pool... It's not a party hostel per se but when we were there there was no shortage of fun people to have some beers in the pool with - I have to say I think this would suit nearly anyone, couples, families, lone travellers, of any age. Alejandro was so helpful and friendly - he doesn't really speak english but if you've even a smattering of Spanish he'll go out of his way to sort things for you. We ended up staying a few extra nights and when the time finally came for us to leave he phoned the bus station and found out bus times and changes and all sorts for us without us even asking, he's just that kind of guy, lovely fellow. And he takes such pride in the little paradise he's created too, painting the plastic chairs to liven up the poolside, hanging material from the roof to add a splash of colour.. Lovely place, try it! Oh, but don't try using their letterless computer, just go to an internet cafe to save your sanity!

Room Tip: The double room up by where the computer is is gorgeous, the nicest one we saw and we saw a few :-)

We spent a night here before travelling on north. The hostel is a couple of blocks away from the main town and bus station but this means it's really quiet and relaxed. The rooms were great with air con, towels and nicely decorated. The highlight though is the lovely pool area and garden which are perfect after a hectic day at the falls.

Not sure why this hostel gets such high rating the garden is awesome that's it. They some of the least comfortable beds I have ever sleep in, beds are tiny and worn through, rooms are hot no aircon and staff does not speak a single word of English not that I expect it but it would be nice since most foreign backpackers aren't fluent in Spanish

My friends and I stayed at garden stone for one night and it was such a nice place. We book a private room that was really clean and comfortable. The pool area is surrounded by nature and a mango tree! The owners are really nice and help you with all the info you might need to get around in Iguazu and the brazilian part of the waterfalls. The hostel is located three blocks from the bus stop and restaurants, which makes it a very convinient location.

Room Tip: Take the prívate 4 people room!

Clean double room with towels provided and clean shared bathroom. Our friends were in a dorm which was also perfect for what they needed. Close to the town-walking distance. Very friendly owner- man - not great English but really helpful. Perfect for visit to iguasu. Breakfast basic but fine.

great hostel. I stayed in mixed female dorm. The room had a clean bathroom and AC. The hostel definitely had a bungalo feel to it which i loved. Great plant life all around and a mango tree in front. The hostel is about 6-7 blocks away from bus station.
The owner was really friendly and helpful.
note: they charge 20 pesos for water in the national park so make sure to pick up all the water you need at convenience store before going to park.
