    Had a great time at Iguana! Staff was super welcoming and sociable. Breakfast was good, cooked by a Oaxacan lady. The rooftop terrace and bar were a great part of the experience, lots of fun. As someone who has lived and worked in hostels, I would definitely recommend this place to backpackers. Cheers guys!

    We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. The location was perfect and right next to the Iglesia de Guadalupe. The owner was not there when we stayed, but staff went out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable and providing us with valuable information on places to explore. We miss you!

    Great place in an historic building in the city center, close to the nightlife. Albeit not a "party hostel", it has its own bar with music.

    I absolutely loved this hostel!! I met so many people here and the vibe is always on point. There's a bar at the top and a lounge area with hammocks which is a great way to meet people. The location is just a short walk from the main downtown area, which is a major plus. The staff was also pretty nice and welcoming. I love Oaxaca and this hostel!

    I loved my stay at Iguana. I was coming from Casa Angel and Iguana was a welcome change. Such a great atmosphere, buzz, and it attracts the outgoing traveler type. I got there Christmas Eve and Antony and his partner helped arrange a large family style potluck. The rooftop is awesome and they add you to a Whatsapp group upon arrival to coordinate outings w/ guests. I'd definitely stay here again if in Oaxaca. If you are looking to work, maybe not the best option for you, no desk in the room.

    This Hostel has a very good location in the city center, close from the main spots of Oaxaca. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was friendly and helpful. You can easily make friends as they have many social areas, including a rooftop bar (just be careful with the narrow stairs after some drinks lol). The structure may seem a little rustic, but it's very functional and you have plenty of individual space by your bed. Would definitely stay there again.

    Stayed here for around 10 days before I headed to Costa Rica for a month. Overall, I really liked the hostel. Good sized kitchen and seating with breakfast served everyday. Rooftop bar with hammocks and tables. The showers have high pressure and hot water. In a great location, near bars and restaurants of Oaxaca. The owner is cool and he has a cool dog. Major negative for ME is the amount of drugs floating around; weed, X, and acid are proliferate, with people dealing in the hostel.
