About Favela Chic Hostel

We do our utmost to create a fun, lively & sociable atmosphere so that you will always remember your time in Foz do Iguassu, not just for the incredible experience of visiting the greatest waterfalls in the world, but also because you found a homely, relaxed and creative atmosphere to hang out in.

Our hammocks are set in grounds with lots of trees and an outdoor relaxation area which includes a magnificent & peaceful fountain.

Our active bar is a place where you can meet travellers from throughout the world. A pool table has been ordered. Oh, and we play great music too.

We aim to do the basics outstandingly well: a great breakfast (including cooked treats), free Wi-Fi, 24 hour reception and help with all your travel needs - especially budget travel throughout South America.

We can offer advice & discounted tickets for the many attractions here with affordable tours (including the "must do" trip to the Falls in Argentina which we believe will be one of the most memorable days of your life).

If we cannot answer any of your questions, we will do our best to find the answer for you.

We offer a free yoga class before supper. The yoga is open to all - beginners are especially welcome. The classes are held subject to there being sufficient demand on any given day.

We also run photographic workshops each Full Moon in this stunning environment to help you bring out your creative genius within. These are open to experienced photographers as well as keen amateurs. They too are subject to sufficient demand.

We also offer a book library. Nothing would give us more pleasure than if you found the book you've always wanted to read there. Book swapping is encouraged.

We have a free DVD library (from the Blues Brothers to the Coen Brothers) for your enjoyment.

We have regular BBQ nights & our kitchen is well stocked.

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy.

We have ordered a swimming pool. We can't wait for it to arrive.

Accommodation Information

We have two dormitories, which will as much as possible be designated as male and female rooms, with adjoining bathrooms.

We also offer a private double room when required.

We have completed phase 1 of our building project and are about to build several private rooms constructed from high quality wood, and will shortly be offering a truly oustanding private double room in a disused old van.

We have just reduced our prices and made breakfast an optional extra to cater for those who wish to travel on a low budget.

We are owned and managed by a veteran English traveller. We are unique (as our name indicates), passionate about travelling and fully committed to providing an outstanding service to travellers. We want your stay to be memorable.

We have incorporated the architectural feel & authentic colour scheme of a Favela, and have creatively used a lot of recycling in decorating our hostel.

We are located centrally in the city, just 2 minutes from a bus stop to the Falls & the Bird Park, with easy bus access to Argentina, Paraguay and the airport.

We are just a few minutes’ walk from many of the best pubs, restaurants and attractions in the city.

We are just 150 metres away from the most popular live music bar in town. So if you love staying up all night, this is the place for you. The place really gets rocking at about midnight.

There is a major supermarket just a few minutes' walk away.
