“Frustrating experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at the hostel inn iguazu for two nights and could not wait to get out of there. The internet was hopeless, a rarity if it worked. The staff were so relaxed that they didn't get anything done. Really unhelpful and disorganised. Would continue having a conversation or facebooking while you're waiting for their help. There was a black out twice. The bathrooms were mouldy with leaking sink. The feel was more like a hotel than a hostel as no one really socialised. The pool and outdoor area was nice.

Stayed December 2013, traveled solo

Hostels around this area do not need to be that great as they are really just stop offs for people seeing Iguazu. However, this hostel has made a big effort and it pays off. The pool is great and the community feel makes you feel included and part of a big travelling family. Great for people travelling solo or with a small group as you end up partying with people all night but the pool.
The rooms are fine - they are clean and basic so exactly what you need from a hostel room. The main benefits are the communal areas and the people that stay there. Always busy and buzzy so don't expect an early night!
Reasonable price and actually quite easy to get a room last minute. I would recommend to anyone staying on the argentina side.

My favorite hostel that I have stayed in. When we arrived at the airport we took the " bus de Ciudad" from the airport for 70 pesos there and back! (Taxi was 160 One way.) Like most people mentioned, the hostel is just outside of town so luckily you will be the first dropped off right to the front door.
Check-in is at 14.00 and we arrived around 11. But the nice lady at the front desk told us to go change and shower if we want and store our luggage and relax by their pool. We decided to go into town instead to get some food. Bus stops right by the hostel. Comes about every 20 minutes for 3 pesos one way and is air conditioned! Big plus because it was over 30 degrees Celsius when we were there for 4 days. Takes about 5 to 10 minutes. We walked one time, I don't recommend this as there are no sidewalks and you are walking on the main road with crazy Argentinian drivers :) The walk took us somewhere between 30 to 45 minutes.
Once we were checked in we relaxed by the pool.
Only negative is our AC in the room was broken so it got muggy, but we didnt spend much time in there anyway, and you cannot bring outside alcohol into the hostel, which I think is understandable.
There is a tourist desk inside the hostel for any questions you may have. One lady that works there is super nice and helpful and will tell you all you need to know and where to go.
They have a taxi sign-up sheet for people who want to go to the falls. If you can get 4 people to share a taxi with you to either the Argentinian or Brazilian side it comes to only 60 pesos per person there and back....where as the bus is 35 pesos one way.
Overall, loved the place. Really enjoyed coming back after walking all day just to relax by the pool.

Very nice hostel, good HI organization, big main building with big terrace and pool. Music, good vibes :-) And dorms in separate buildings so it's quiet. I really loved staying there! It's 4 to 5 km from the center of Puerto Iguazu but you can get there by bus in 10min and it's very cheap. The hostel has good facilities as well (laundry, bar, meal for lunch and dinner, etc)

When I stayed here in july, it was raining and not very busy, but had a good range of indoor activities - free pool, table tennis etc. The menu was good and the free breakfast was also tasty.

Even though it wasn't busy, it was low season and I would expect it to be very good in high season - it had a really good setting with a pool and lots of grounds. It was a cheap taxi away from iguazu falls and a very cheap bus into the town centre.

The rooms are quite basic but the hostel itself has a lot of amenities.

The beds are quite small & the tv is old ( we were unable to connect our portable DVD player), but these items are really minor & don't hold them against the hostel. The pool is great & there are pool tables & ping pong tables. There is a tourdesk set up but there never seems to be any staff there but otherwise the staff are great, they all speak good English ( we came as naive australians ).

Good, cheapish accommodation if you are just here to see the falls & have a good time!

The hostel is very well located and has a great swimming-pool. It also offers organized trips to the waterfalls. The rooms are basic but clean, the toilets are fine and the breakfast is OK. In short, for its location, I find it as a good choice, with a good ratio quality-price. The only bad experience was that we were told to have a discount in a "Parrilla", but then once at the restaurant there was not discount at all. Even though we call back to try to clarify, at the end there was no discount. Apart from that, everything was fine - I'd go back again.
