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... More

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,... More

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... More

The actual hostel isn't anything special, the room was basic, the beds a bit of a worry if they would hold another person on the top bunk (luckily our room was just us as we went in low season) and the bathroom door was broken. The wifi also didn't work in our room and there was no breakie or even... More

Clean hostel with very helpful staff. The barbecue dinner at the hostel was nice, and we allways felt really welcome. The bus to Iguazu falls and Itaipu stops tight outside the hotel and only cost 3 R$ to both. We enjoy or stay here and recommend it for anyone travelling to Foz de Iguacu.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
