Property Description

Iguana Backpacker's unique location is a tranquil one; the area is surrounded by lush greenery just a short walk from the center of Montanita. This means you can easily stumble back from the bars at the end of the night but won't have to listen to the thumping club music until sunrise if you want to go in early.

Our hotel is located just 150 meters from the beach. We offer shared rooms at low rates (rooms with a double bed, with 3 beds, dormitory with 6 beds, and a loft area dormitory with 10 beds). Our numerous quality services and amenities include mosquito nets, fans, wi-fi, hot water, tv with Netflix, a full equipped shared kitchen, refrigerator/freezer, laundry service, deck/terrace, bar with delicious and strong cocktails, surf board rentals and lessons offering the best price in town; a bar-restaurant with breakfast until 2 pm and weekly delicious dinners!

Our open, covered outdoor deck area not only has a view of lush greenery but it is also the home to numerous iguanas that often sun themselves in the surrounding bushes. Many iguanas can frequently be spotted in the surrounding greenery and right off the back deck. Iguana backpackers is synonymous with the place to relax and party. The fun and friendly atmosphere found out back sitting on the deck is a great meeting place where you can hang out with travelers from all over the world. Our friendly bartenders blend delicious cocktails made with at least 2 shots per drink and use only natural, fresh ingredients. Six nights a week, drinking games and music continue until last call announced at around 2 a.m. You will truly feel at home when you are with the international people of Iguana Backpackers!

Upon registration at the hostel, you will be issued a colored bracelet that gives you free entrance into numerous bars and clubs in town! Iguana's has a well established reputation and local establishments gladly welcome our hostel guests!

We speak Spanish, French and English and will be more than happy to help you discover Montanita and the surrounding towns along the Ecuadorian coast also known as the 'Ruta del Sol'.

We are often looking for people and backpackers who have a charismatic personality who can either work in the bar or reception. Anyone interested in being a volunteer has to commit to a minimum stay of two weeks.

For our volunteers, we offer numerous perks including:
-free accommodation
-2 free cocktails every day!

Latest Review

" I had a great stay at the Iguana. It has a really nice atmosphere and has a great patio right near the river where you can see iguanas climbing through the trees at anytime of day. Great location, just outside the noisy center. Staff was great and really friendly. I loved having the bar and Iguana Family Dinners are great! I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this spot to everyone. A great stop on my journey! "
