This place is conveniently located just two blocks from the urban bus-station and the stop to go to the argentinian border. All rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful (many languages), the wifi is stable and super fast and the in-house restaurant serves decent food. There is a lack of bathrooms, though, and the beds in the dorm...

Only stayed here because our other B&B had no room for our last night. Glad it was just the one night but it wasn't the worst place I've stayed. It was in a great central location near to restaurants and supermarket. Our room was night and bring but there were just too many creepy crawlies around the place - I...

We stayed here for 2 nights, in a comfortable double room. Hot shower and fantastic breakfast included. The best part was definitely the manager, he was extremely helpful in giving us tips on visiting the falls, booking tickets on our behalf (at the exact same cost as buying them onsite), and helping us organize transport to get across the border...

Luis is a delight of an owner. So very helpful during my short stay there. Without him I would have missed my bus to Florián. Really caring guy and has all the knowledge you need to plan your Iguazú trip. The hostel has a great vibe too. Live music in the front courtyard as people walk by. Beaut.

I think this is one of the best hostels we have ever stayed in. The rooms were nice and the bathrooms look new. There is a really nice terrace in front of the hostel where you can eat very good pizza and drink amazing capirinhas! But the best thing is the great help of Luis, the owner. He went out...

The location is very central in terms of the city downtown. Only a minute away from the local bus terminal. Only a minute away from downtown shops. However there is no kitchen - big minus for a backpacker. Also strangely, breakfast is not included free. Because of the lack of kitchen, I felt a little bit at a loss since,...

Failed to get a face-to-face discussion with Luis the owner of Katharina House on two occasions to complain about four of us being left stranded at the Iquazu falls, on the Argentina side, after a 9 hour visit. This occurred after we missed our rendezvous time by half an hour. Afterwards we left a note at his office, however can't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For those who are used to travel around the world, this might be one of your all-time favourite hostels. The staff makes you feel incredibly welcome and takes time to help everyone with whatever they need. After a day at the falls, we can recommend great places to eat that aren't too expensive. Katharina House offers a new take on the guesthouse experience... Under the administration of Jaha Iguassu Explorer Tourism, Katharina House is a well-established and highly popular guesthouse which was under the same management team. We offer you everything you could need and want so that you can make the most of your holidays and stay in Foz do Iguaçu: a great local & Brazil-wide information and quality entertainment all at an excellent price. We invite you to try it for yourself and feel at 'home away from home.' ... more   less
