A wonderful little guesthouse. I planned to stay here only two nights but ended up staying a lot longer. The staff and owner are so friendly and helpful. It is a great location 5 minutes walk from the very centre and 1 minute from the fantastically cheap and plentiful food market. 1 minute walk from the famous artesans market. As someone travelling for many months it is ideal. A very decent breakfast is included in the price which has included pancakes, scrambled eggs with refired beans.

The hostel has everything you would want for a backpacker. Hamacas for when its nice and sunny, and a salon to sprawl out in for when its rainy (which is a lot). The breakfasts are diverse and filling. The showers always have hot water. You can use the kitchen and cook anything you want, and the staff is social and helpful. Besides that, its colourful and there are some nice social events like BBQs, all around good ambiance.

Such an awesome place with a great vibe. The staff is amazing and super helpful with anything, and the city itself was so hard to leave. The breakfasts are also really legit.

This hostel is great if you want to meet people. There are so many areas to hang out in and there were always people meeting for breakfast or beers up on the balcony. Rudy the owner was also the best. He was really friendly and helpful for getting around and doing stuff in SC. He also hung out with the guests so it felt like he was another traveller staying there. A very fun and welcoming hostel! Would definitely stay again.

Honestly don't have a negative thing to say about this hostel. Such an amazing owner who genuinely cares about the guests and a very communal vibe, the location is perfect. San cristobal is such an amazing city, and made even better by this hostel.

This was my third stay at the Iguana; I can't seem to stay away. This time was even better than the last. There is a new tv room which is great for hanging out and watching movies inside on cold nights. And the staff is as dedicated and fun as ever--as well as the auxiliary cast of characters that always seems to drop by with food or music to share. I want to say thanks to everyone who made my stay magical: Sabrina, Nicholas, Daisy, Alex, Freesia, Rosa, Han, Valentine, Tom, and Rudy!

I had such a wonderful time at the Iguana Hostel!! The hostel is located close to the stunning food-market and it takes as well just 5 minutes to go to the central park. The staff is amazing,they are like family! I think the most beautiful about this hostel is the amtosphere! so many times we cooked together and always everybody is invited to eat,even when they just arrived 5 minutes ago. for sure,it's not the cheapest hostel,but the breakfeast is included and it's one of the best I ever had!!

The Iguana was one of the best hostels I stayed at in Mexico. The facilities were clean, the staff were not just friendly but actively tried to engage in with the guests. It's in a perfect location, only a few minutes walk to most of the sights in the city as well as the markets. Breakfast is made every morning by the staff and everything we had was both delicious and abundant. The atmosphere at the Iguana is second to none, anyone who wants to have a good time should stay here.

I had a wonderful stay at Iguana Hostel. The location is perfect, close to everything in town. Iguana Hostel is clean and comfortable. Lots of common areas to hang out with other guests, lots of hammocks, and a great kitchen. It is easy to get to know everyone. Iguana Hostel feels like a family.
