Hostelz.com's Review
Hostel Bambu Argentina is just one of the many hostels in the small town of Puerto Iguazu, home to those wanting to see the Argentinean side of Iguazu falls.

The Location

The location of this hostel is great. It is literally two blocks from the bus station. The bus will also pass the hostel on the way to the station so keep your eyes open if you want to save yourself the short walk. The main reason for anyone going to Puerto Iguazu is to go to the waterfalls, which can be done by taking regular buses from the station, again another advantage of its location.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms feel really special in this hostel. This is perhaps because they are a different shape to the normal square rooms you find in most hostels. Many of them are far longer than they are wide, which means they are only able to fit beds on one side of the rooms. This is great as it means there is plenty of room to move around, and also good distance between the beds, which is great when there are snorers about.

Common Spaces

There really isn't much of a lounge in this place, only a couple of bean bags and a small sofa with a television. However it makes up for it with a huge kitchen, outside bar, and patio tables on the front patio, all of which are very comfortable.

Summary

The hostel is exceptionally clean, offers plenty of room, and has staff who know everything there is to know about getting the most from your trips to the waterfalls. We recommend this hostel very highly.

4   Convenient cosy hostel Towel 10 arg pesos. Staaf is friendly. Walking distance from bus terminal 3 blocks and very close to the ferry to Ciudad del Este , Paraguay. 20 minutes of relaxed walk to the ferry. Ferry is 10 arg pesos. No ferry on Sunday!! A breakfast could be better. Milk is kept boiling hot to prevent guests to drink it.  , age 47, Russian ()
4   Good, clean hostel, with good kitchen and a bar. We stayed in a double room and it was very clean and had a good working airco. And you definitely need one there if you want a good night sleep because of the humidity. The staff was also very friendly and gave us good advice about going to Iguazu. The only thing I didn't liked so much was that you can't bring your own drinks because they have a bar. When you love beer it's not a problem they sell it at a good price. But I don't drink beer but wine. They didn't have that but I wasn't aloud to bring my own.  , Dutch ()
