El Güembe Hostel Puerto Iguazu Reviews
Affordable and Friendly Accomodation Nov 14, 2010
Loved our stay at El Guembe. The owner (who's name escapes me now) was an excellent host who made us feel welcome. Great and friendly guy who even offers you assistance in booking your journey to the National Park and if he's available drives you there himself and arranges your time there on your behalf. He doesn't take any tips and you just pay him for the transport.
The hostel it self is nice and cozy, with it's own kitchen. A simple breakfast but you're free to use the fridge and the kitchen anytime you want to prepare your meals. There's a supermart just up the road with everything and anything you want, includes a deli, butcher, bakery and a wine store(CHEAP CHEAP GORGEOUS Argentinian wine)
Highly recommended for the solo traveler as you can surely feel safe here.
The staff are friendly and very very helpful and you're sure to meet other fellow travelers in this cozy spot.

Good value for the money & perfect location... Sep 15, 2005
El Güembe is a little hostel located in a quiet area of the Puerto Iguazú, just situated close to the bus station (10 min) and 15 minutes from the centre of town.
The room was basic, nothing luxurious, but clean and comfortable and with a decent private bathroom.
The best aspect is the AC if you consider the climatic conditions of P.Iguazú.
The breakfast is included in the price. Very simple and basic but no complaints taking in count it is free.
On the negative side, I should mention the facilities for cooking that they offered when I visited this place. The kitchen, situated in the garden, was really dirty and not useful for cooking food.
On the contrary the staff of El Güembe was really friendly and helpful, always ready to offer help or any kind of information if you need it.
All this aspects and the good price make El Güembe in a perfect place to stay in as a starting point to enjoy the wonderful spectacle of Iguazú.
Undoubtedly I would return again if I get the chance.
