    Very nice relaxing hostel, well located just outside the centre of the village. Howard was very helpful with both arranging a tour guide for the ruins that was very knowledgeable and helping out with bus route options to get to Utila. I was very much appreciated as post covid things aren’t running quite as they used to. Hostel itself was well looked after and had a couple of areas that encouraged travellers to hang out and meet each other.

    Wished I could have stayed longer. Howard and his team were great hosts. I also recommend their cafe/B&B next door, La Casa de Cafe.

    Iguana Azul was a great choice for Copan Ruinas. The hostel was beautifully decorated. Clean, basic rooms. Warm showers. Not much of a communal area but that didn’t bother us as we spent most of our time exploring. The staff are incredible, very friendly and willing to help any way they could.

    Really good value for money. There’s no kitchen but there is a fridge. The food next door is really good too. Reasonably priced. Staff were super nice and would recommend the ruins tour with them. I would book your own shuttle / bus though. Place was spotless and cosy, quiet hostel.

    Hostel is very clean and comfortable. The restrooms and showers were great, with plenty of hot water. The felt safe and secure and in a good location, just not very centered to town which can be a good thing for the noise. The town is small so its easy to walk around.

    Whilst my stay here was very average I found it disappointing the lack of kitchen, poor wifi and found the staff to be kind of condescending. Definitely felt like a hierarchy with the private rooms of the hotel being what they cared for, you arn’t allowed to use card to pay if you’re in the hostel but they are? I found this very very odd. Just disappointing staff, there’s no need to treat people in that way. But very safe property for a few nights.
