Good basic hotel in central location

Posted Oct 25, 2014
Easy walking distance from local bus terminal (frequent buses to the falls, bird park and dam), restaurants and shopping area. Rooms are small, simple but comfortable. There is a small swimming pool. Good buffet style continental breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit. Shared cooking facilities are available. Staff friendly and give useful information on visiting the sights and where to eat. At the time of writing the hotel must be paid in full in cash. Expedia say half is paid by card at time of booking, but hotel say this is incorrect and insist on full payment in cash.

Two nights in July

Posted Jul 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
I had a single room (ensuite with two beds) which I used basically for sleeping and taking showers. The hostel is a good choise for staying a night or two. The staff can speak good English and give detailed information of different attractions though some information was incorrect or I asked wrong questions (of Argentinian side of the falls)... Breakfast was OK, but in the first morning juice ran out and they didn´t refill the container. I found the swimming pool dirty so I didn´t use it. Location is close enough to everything and in a quiet neighbourhood. A good thing was that I could leave my baggage in a locker room even after checking-out, because I had an evening bus. If I went to Foz do Iguacu again I might stay in this hostel once more...

Good Value fpr Money and very Helpful Staff

Reasonably clean, decent breakfast, they compensate for not having lunch/dinner by having a large variety of contact numbers of all types of restaurants and readily helping order food, unexpected highlight being a good free Wi-fi connection

Hotel staff were really helpful. Spoke english ok. Air con didnt work in 1 room so we got moved to another. We got really sick and had to stay another night and they moved a few things around just for us. Breakfast is good. Its pretty close to the bus and town. Just wen the sun goes down - catch a taxi

Comfortable and great value for money!

Posted Sep 15, 2010
Rooms were very comfortable and clean with everything you need - big comfy beds, TV, air-con, and a big shower. Some of the staff spoke English and were very helpful in organising tours to the falls and helping us to find our way around, with suggestions for dinner (cheap and yummy por kilo restaurant located in the nearby shopping centre, for example) and other activities. Breakfast was included (the usual fare of bread, cheese, meat, fruit, and eggs, plus tea, coffee, and juice). Internet was not free, but cheap enough, and there was a small lounge near the reception and secure luggage storage. There was also a swimming pool and guest kitchen. Great value for money - recommended!
