The hostel is well located near the busterminal. It had ok breakfast with long boiled eggs but no cheese. The beds were comfortable as was the bathroom, although the bin in the dormitory toilet was not emptied every day, together with near tropical temperatures the smell was quite awful. Staff is nice but only one speaks a little English. No...

This was a really nice hostel. The breakfast was so good (toast, boiled egg, fruit, delicious juice). The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. There was air conditioning on wherever you wanted it in the rooms, which was incredible as it was stiflingly hot while we were there. It was close to everything...

We stayed there during Carnaval so didn't spend much time in the hostel but had a pleasant stay regardless. There is an outdoor bar and lounge area, the staff is fun and friendly, and the vibe very chill. Rooms are nice, beds comfortable. Breakfast is included and ok.

We are travelling around South America as a late twenties/early thirties couple and we stayed in Kerana Hostel in a private room for three nights. We really can't talk about Kerana hostel highly enough. The staff were so friendly and helpful throughout our stay - particularly the manager Javier - and all went way beyond the usual assistance you get...

Paraguay is not a country a lot of travelers visit, but if you go and you go to Encarnacion! You should stay at Kerana Hostel! The staff is really friendly and can help you learn Spanish. In the weekends the bar is open and you can get pizza!! We only had the idea that the bathroom wasn't cleaned every day....

Javier and team were spectacular at giving us all sorts of ideas of what to do in the area, information, and help finding and booking a place to stay after we left them. The hostel is super clean and new and modern, almost more of a hotel in the private en suite room than a hostel. Great breakfast included and...

“wifi is better in rooms close to the ground floor.”

“Dorm rooms are super spacious, massive lockers and all single beds - for those who usually choose private for security, bathroom access, comfort and a good night's sleep, there's no need at this hostel!”
