Really enjoyed the stay at Iguana Hostel. The staff were amazingly friendly, an have good advice . The gentleman that owned the hostel went out if his way to make sure that everything was alright an we knew where we were. Not the cleanest of hostels, but it's not the worst I have ever stayed in. Really lovely and friendly atmosphere here where it's easy to meet fellow travellers. Great value for money. I would stay here again.

I have stayed here twice, much longer than planned, because I felt welcome at Iguana. I got amazing travel tips and local knowledge from the staff, which made my stay in San Cristobal the highlight of months traveling. And the home made breakfasts on the sunny terrace everyday the best! Thanks Rudy, Antony, Adrien & Bet!

The team is great! Thanks for making the stay so great. I loved the breakfast. However, the beds could use some new bedsheets and one shower for so many people is just not enough, especially when you have to catch a bus to a tour.

I had an amazing stay at Iguana Hostel. Location is perfect. City center, artesanias market, fruit market and colectivo station are nearby and you can reach the bus station in about 20 minutes walking. All the people working there make you feel very welcome and help you when you have any question. Breakfast is delicious (and every day something different).

Such friendly staff preparing a different fresh breakfast daily. Thanks guys.. the only downside was that the private room bed was not great. The mattress had really seen better days.. but a pleasant relaxed vibe in the hostel. I'd happily recommend it!

This is my third time at the Iguana, I consider it my Mexican home away from home. The owner Rudy and his staff are friendly, welcoming and inclusive, hostel is in a good location near to excellent food and craft markets. Sociable atmosphere but quiet after 11 so people can sleep. It's very clean with comfy beds and lots of blankets for cold San Cristobal nights! Would recommend to anyone.

Great location, great atmosphere, clean and safe. The atmosphere is amazing you will find your space if you want to stay on your own and a great superfriendly environment if you want to meet new people. A lot of trips can be booked through the hostel, and activities are organized all the time. The volunteers are great and they make the best breakfast I ever had in my whole trip (freshly cooked for each guest!). I stayed longer than expected and was tempted to stay even longer!

When I come back to San Cristobal, I always return to Iguana Hostel, a home away from home. The location is excellent, between the city center and the old market. Rudy and the staff are always friendly, ready to give tour advice or share a drink. The patio common area is a great place to hang out, share meals, make new friends. A visit to a new city can be made or broken, depending on where you spend the night, so if you don't want to take any chances, come to IGUANA!

Nice little hostel makes you feel at home . Rudy and the staff are great . The hostel could use more bathrooms . More for relaxing and a little parting lights off at 11 pm.

A backpacker suggested me Iguana Hostel and it was a great advice!! You'll find a hostel with the real backpack atmosphere, wonderful staff, simple but an excellent breakfast and conformable beds. I'll definitely go back to Iguana Hostel for a longer stay.
