iguazu falls are truly a sight to see. and it's well deserved to have been chosen as 1 of the 7 new wonders of the world.
puerto canoas hotel is located near the city of puerto iguazu & within walking distance you can see some stores & restaurants. because i was staying in puerto iguazu 1 extra day, the staff hotel, lucas, mentioned about visiting the refugio de animales & a couple of other places. after returning from my visit to the iguazu falls, chela (manager) booked me a driver-for-hire to take me around puerto iguazu the next day. That is how i met ariel, the remisero (taxi driver) who took me to guira oga (refugio de animales), aripuca, bio center, hito 3 fronteras (la costanera), a place where the borders of 3 countries: argentina, brazil, & paraguay meet, & piedras preciosas, a jewelry store where rhodochrosite, the argentinian national stone is sold.
I've stayed in over 30 hostels and this was by far my favorite. The layout is awesome with a restaurant bar and pool free wifi and cheap bus rates to town and the falls. 2 days before I got to Iguazu my debit card and cash was stolen and when I explained it to Leo the manager he loaned me 400 pesos of his own personal money and had me pay him back 2 days later on Monday when my money transfer came in from western union. The staff was helpful and also socialized with the guests (kept it professional, just being friendly) and I wish I didn't have to leave as soon as I did. Would have loved to stay longer. I see a lot of people saying the staff were rude, obviously I didn't have that experience and maybe the staff is different now but I would definitely stay here again. For only $10 it's a huge deal
It was a good hotel, I enjoyed my stay. The staff was very helpful. However, through no fault of the hotel, the heater did not work in our floor so we had two cold nights. Our blankets were not warm enough so we just bore the cold, somehow being Canadians helped.. meaning we are used to feeling frigid cold. If the rooms were warm, it would have been a good room.
Also the location is perfect just across the bus terminal.
Pro: clean, quiet, economical, breakfast included (cereal, cakes, facturas, bread, ham, cheese, fruits, juice, coffee/tea), 10 minutes walk to town center.
Con: wifi only in reception area, staff had poor knowledge of touristic information, non-English speaking staff.
Very nice people, a reasonable place to stay. We were in a huge room with many beds, but there were only two of us. There was an issue with the electricity not working well, so that the air conditioning functioned erratically. It's a place to stop at to sleep, but not much more. A little off the beaten track, about four blocks from the main restaurants and bus station. Not a problem, just something to know.
