Good morning Kaitlyn, Thank you very much for such a lovely review! We are glad you enjoyed your time with us. We would just like to explain to you why we don't have lockers inside the rooms. Since it's not possible to put cameras in the rooms and we care a lot about our guests comfort, it's better to have...

We just passed there to take a drink and ended up doing a reservation for a trip to the Argentinian part of the falls. The price was 50 RS which is a bit more expensive than the local bus, but you save about 2 h time and it's way more comfortable. Totally recommendable!

I had pizza twice at Katharina House during my stay in Foz and really enjoyed the evenings there. Staff was really friendly and the pizzas I had were great. Also the atmosphere outside in the restaurant is very cozy!

We visited this place on a free day off from our tour. The owner (Louis) was very friendly and hospitable. The food was good and came in large portions. We had ordered cocktails... And they were amazing. All in all, it was a nice nite out in a comfortable, warm setting with good and friendly service.

We really enjoyed the stay at Hostel Katharina. The Owner is around 24/7 and gives best advice for what to do in the time you have available. The hostel is about 5 minutes walking distance away from the main bus stop and from all the restaurants and downtown. We felt really welcoming and enjoyed the great atmosphere especially at night...

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.
