Property Description

Iguana Backpackers is the chillest spot in town. We are the place to relax all day and party with new friends as the sun goes down. The Iguana is an international spot, great to meet people from all around the world. Our scenic riverside location is just a short walk from the center of town and the beach, but just far enough away to sleep well at night. Our riverside patio has a TV, a barbecue, games, hammocks, and a ping pong table.

At night our bar offers cheap delicious cocktails and ice cold beers. We welcome friends to enjoy card games, Beer Pong Tournaments, and drink specials such as our Happy Hour every night. Wednesday through Sunday guests rave about our IGUANA FAMILY DINNERS. Our homemade dinners range from MEXICAN FOOD, BBQ, PIZZA, INDIAN FOOD, and more! We also have the only Salad Bar in town. You can grab a smoothie, a salad loaded with fresh ingredients, or the popular Pulled Pork Sandwich at our Juice and Salad Bar on-site.

We offer private and shared rooms (A/C or Fan) at low rates. The hostel has hot showers, Excellent WiFi, a fully equipped kitchen for everyone to use (fridge, stove, oven, blender, coffee machine, etc.) and free breakfast in the morning. We pride ourselves on providing guests with secure in-room luggage lockers and 24/7 security at the entrance. Upon arrival 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!

From the bus station head 2 blocks towards the bridge, take a right at the bridge and we are just two houses up from the bridge on the right hand side in Barrio Tigrillo.
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.

Latest Review

" This hostel was probably the best we've stayed in South America so far. Good vibes, good people, fantastic location. Rooms are clean and comfortable! Right next to beach and bars. Manager Jaren made us feel right at home from the moment we got there until the moment we left. Amazing dinners! Cheap drinks, fun times throughout the night! Travelers on the trail had been talking up Iguana a bunch, so I decided to check it out, and totally impressed! Well worth it! "
