Property Information:

Five years since opening, Iguana Hostel is well known among backpackers for its family, chilled out and fun atmosphere.
People come to the Iguana for two nights and they stay for two weeks... This is because Iguana Hostel can host only up to 27 people, so it's easy to make friends to share fun with, and we will always take good care of you. Our main asset is our staff: travellers on the road, who love making friends, and speak your language.

Take advantage of free Internet and Wi-Fi, play ping-pong and foosball in your free time, become a champion eventually, then relax in a hammock in our garden, make friends by bonfire at night or enjoy San Cristobal's night life with your new friends and our staff. We have all kind of tours on offer: both conventional and alternative. Moreover, we are always happy to provide advice on how to optimise your stay in San Cristobal, as well as travel in Mexico and neighbouring countries. Many travellers say they feel at home here and stay with us for weeks! And if your bus is leaving at night you can still use hostel's facilities and store your luggage for free!

Check out: 11am
