Liked: The hostel has a great location, only a few minutes from the bus terminal. The room was good and the staff was very friendly and helpfull.

Disliked: We expected more from the breakfast because it was described as being a huge breakfast with many choices. The breakfast was really good but not as expected.

Liked: Excellent breakfast (complete with fresh orange juice!) that a staff member serves. Also liked how I was able to leave my belongings (behind reception) to explore Iguazu, and then wait around the hostel until my bus came.

Disliked: Minor concerns but disliked how there weren't keys for 4-bed, 8-bed dorms. Also the common room is all open air so it's very cold during winter.

Liked: Dorm room is very spacious and clean (and has 2 ensuite bathrooms) with comfy beds. Really relaxed atmosphere and staff are willing to help and answer any questions -they also buzz guests in, making the hostel more secure. The included breakfast is great - cereal, fruit, bread, cake!, coffee, tea. Wifi is fast, and there are also 2 extra computers. Hot water too!

Disliked: Swimming pool is smaller than it looks in the photos and isnt very clean. Garden area is completely shaded so no sun! The kitchen area is also very small (only one person can really cook at one time). Only little problems - I would definately stay here again!

Liked: It was very close to the bus station and high streets and the room was good value for money, one of the cheapest we could find in puerto iguacu and having the free internet on the computers was a bonus.

Disliked: The room door didnt shut properly and there was no way of the locking the room and the lockers were abit beaten up. The bathrooms were not the cleanest as they were abit mouldy and one was very cold. The pool was pretty dirty as well

Liked: This is a beautiful small hostel with great staff. The breakfast is really nice which is served out in the garden. I love the garden with the small swimming pool as you can sit there and watch all the wonderful birds that fly in to use the bird feeders hanging around. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable.

Liked: Good location. Female staff member very helpful with info about tours to falls. Nice breakfast.

Disliked: The rooms are surrounded by the lounge and common areas of the hostel. There is no set time that ppl must vacate common areas. One night during our stay there was a bunch of ppl outside our room near the pool drinking, playing music and talking very loud. At 1am I spoke to the night staff member who was sitting with these people socializing and asked what time they could stay out there making noise. He said there was no set time. Th noise contined. At 2am I spoke to the male staff member again but to no avail. At 3am after glasses had been broken and the noise was louder again I spoke to the staff member again. The group moved into the room next to the pool but the noise continued albeit quieter. When you are at the falls it's really big days as you walk many km's and leave early and arrive back late afternoon. If you don't get a good nights sleep, as we didn't at the hostel, it makes it a really hard day.

Liked: Close to the bus terminal where you can take the bus to the Iguazu falls. One of the best breakfasts I had in South America (cheese, ham, chocolate cake, fresh orange juice,...) With swimming pool, although you need to pick the leaves out of it yourself (located under the trees).

Disliked: Shower had a strange system, and wasn't that warm

Liked: Excellent location (just two blocks from bus station). Staff knowledgeable and friendly (but not as social as other places I've stayed). Very clean. Wonderful outside deck (bring bug spray though =). Good breakfast. Internet relatively reliable (a few issues, but better than other places I've stayed in Brazil and Argentina). Not a party place, folks more or less stay to themselves, but has a nice relaxing vibe. Lots of common space to relax in.

Disliked: Kitchen pretty small, but has what you need. No hot showers.
