From Buenos Aires to Iguassu there's a 16 or 17 hours ride, in a good bus (eg Via Bariloche).
Hotels are quite expensive, but worth their value. I don't know the names of hostels, may be someone else can help you there.

Hi! I takes aprox. 18 hours to get to Iguazu from B.A by bus, for example Via Bariloche or Tigre Iguazu, the prices may vary from $140 to 185 and they depart from Retiro station everyday.
I think that three days are enough for a limited trip and to see both Argentine and Brazilian side.
If you are looking for a nice inn in Puerto Iguazu you could go to "Los Helechos", it is unexpensive.
Good luck!

From BsAs to Iguazú, it costs ar$ 230 (the cheapest) through Vía Bariloche. That is about $80.

Has it really gotten THAT expensive, Leo? Gosh, I remember prices half as low (admittedly, in low season), and that was only 18 months ago.

Yes u can fly from BA to Iguazu Falls.
U have to fly from Jorge Newberry Airport in BA to the Falls.

Try either lan.com or try Argentina Aerolineas.

Should be like $200 Round trip (USD).

Oh.. Stay at the Hostel Inn in Iguazu.. I believe it was 20 Pesos a night to stay

Lan is the cheapest option, around usd130 one way. If you are not in a hurry you may get better deals. Try argentinaspecialist.com
In high season the sites of the airlines tend to be overpriced.
Good trip!
