Top hotel quality at hostel prices on the way to Iguassu Falls makes Charm Iguassu an excellent choice.
Having worked in Iguazu´s tourism industry for many years, Márcio and his family decided to go it alone and open their own place in 2008. Speaking fluent English, French, Spanish and Portuguese and clearly understanding the needs and wishes of tourists, the hostel is an impressive complex. Large spotless rooms and a relaxing swimming pool give visitors every chance of recuperating in comfort before and after visiting the waterfalls. The family atmosphere the hostel creates is none better shown than by its enormous homemade breakfast and highly helpful information from reception. Here you can book nearly any excursion you wish to in the area.
The hostel is ideally located in a secure and quiet part of town at only 15 minutes walk from the centre and on the way to the falls and Argentine border.
How to arrive
From the bus station a taxi should cost under BRL 20, or take a bus to the city centre and then get on any bus heading to Argentina or the falls on the Brazilian side. Get off the bus 3 blocks after turning onto Avenida das Cataratas and turn right onto Rua Irlan Kalichewski. Charm Iguassu Suites is on the Right.
From the airport phone ahead for a pick-up service (00554530275624), or a taxi will cost BRL40 to 50.
Breakfast here is a specialty with a great range of homemade cakes and breads alongside toasted sandwiches, fresh fruits, cheese, ham, spreads, tea, coffee and juices. This is served from 7 until 10 every day and check out is at 11. Rooms are all meticulously cleaned daily and each have large private bathrooms, cable tv and mini-bars. The swimming pool area has a number of tables and chairs and weight-lifting facilities.
There is free WIFI internet available in all common areas. The comfortable reception has a tv with dvd player, sofas and a good collection of magazines and guidebooks. Laundry, snacks and drinks are available. Visa, Amex and MasterCard are accepted and the hostel has a fax machine.
Aside from that, Márcio and family can help organize a great number of trips to Iguassu Falls Brasil, Iguassu Falls Argentine, Macuco Safari Boat Trip, BirdPark, tour to Jesuit Ruins in Argentine and visit to Itaipu dam and Paraguay.
