I originally planned to stay for 2 nights but stayed for 10. The staff and the atmosphere are great. I was greeted with smiles and everyone was eager to include me in games and conversations. The owner employees locals to operate tours and work on property improvements. I appreciate seeing this. Everyone speaks English well and is very knowledgeable about the area and beyond. Family dinner each night is a good bargain and the bar is a great place to enjoy the night and new friends!

Hostel had a weird atmosphere, kinda tried to pressure you into partying. Had a long travel day and they turn off the WiFi at 8 to "encourage socializing". I understand the intentions but don't appreciate feeling forced to talk to people, instead of just letting it Halen naturally. Shower literally fell apart when I tried to use it. Food is good but got eaten alive by mosquitoes during dinner. Many comparable hostels closer to city center for cheaper prices that aren't online.

What makes the "Casa de la Iguana" experience amazing is the staff who are incredibly warm, sincere and caring. Chris Rae, the owner, is the highlight. Iguana is also a very safe and welcoming place. You feel at easy in this green oasis that moves with the pace of the river. Rooms are spacious and impeccably clean. I stayed in a private room. And the place provides enough bathrooms/showers to make the stay as smooth as possible. It has all that you need.REALLY, LOOK NO MORE!!!

Very basic hostel. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Would not recommend staying for more than a night as a stop for further travel through Guatemala.
