Great little hostel. All the staff at the front desk are incredibly helpful with everything from restaurants to eat at and where to get your groceries to what tours to go on at Iguazu and so on. The double room was clean, the a/c worked and so did the hot water. The pool was a little iffy and the wifi...

We booked a room with air conditioning, which turned out to be a squeaky ceiling fan, which wasn't ideal in mid-February and mid to high 20's (celsius). Wi-fi was great though! The room was pretty bare - a bed and two small side tables - and we were disappointed that the windows lacked any netting, which meant we had to...

We stayed at the hostel for 2 nights whilst visiting the falls. Veronica welcomed us on our arrival and spent time with us pointing out areas in the town we should visit, how to get to the falls and where to find supermarkets etc. She and the rest of the staff were really helpful and made our short stay very...

Stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Iguazu Falls. Hostel is clean and well set out with nice outdoor areas. Pool could be more inviting. Really appreciated air conditioning in the bedrooms. The bathrooms are fine although the floor was constantly wet - I don't think people realised you could close the shower cubicle. Breakfast was nice and...

The hostel itself is OK. Room smelt damp and musty and bed felt unclean although the sheets were clean. Beds were rock hard and difficult to sleep on. AC unit was loud and clunky, but worked. Pool was a bit grim. Kitchen was decent. The worst bit was the hostel owners who treated us very badly. They refused to take...

The facilities and location are pretty average, but the people make all the difference. The staff was super friendly -- they even made a cake for a woman who was visiting solo on her birthday! I had a great time with them, I'd definitely stay there again!!

We spent a couple of nights at Poramba whilst we were visiting Iguazu Falls. It's a few minutes walk from the bus terminal in a quiet street. The staff were all very friendly and helped us out with our questions about tours, transport etc. English was spoken. The kitchen is a good size and well-equipped, whilst a typical Argentinian hostel...

It was the perfect place to stay in Puerto Iguazu for me, very friendly and helpful staff, clean room and bathroom, nice and quite atmosphere for a little price. As well it is very good situated only 5 minutes walk from the bus terminal and the center with bars and restaurants. They also were very helpful to plan the trips...

This place was perfect for what we were after, it's in a convenient location, close to the bus, the room was spacious and clean (it was the private room). The lady on reception was amazing, she gave us some great tips for where else in Argentina to go, and was so friendly with a lovely dog too. I'd recommend this...
