    Best hostel we've stayed in in Mexico so far!! Especially appreciated the clean and well equipped kitchen as we haven't been able to make our own meals easily in other hostels. Good atmosphere in the rooftop bar in the evenings, cheap drinks and easy to meet people. Felt very at home in this hostel.

    I enjoyed my time at Iguana Hostel! The place is basically an institution in Oaxaca, people love to hang out there because the atmosphere is so friendly and warm. It is a huge credit to the Management and volunteers for creating an environment where people can come together, share, and form important relationships. You will really enjoy the long conversations you have with others up on the rooftop. A huge thank you to the staff of Iguana for setting up a memorable experience for travelers!

    I had an amazing experience in Iguana. The dorms were cool as they give you a mini room with curtains and comfy bed. The only downside is the staff couldn’t answer any of your questions as they relied on the WhatsApp group to give you your answers. Another thing is the staff are a bit rude as they told my friend to put sheets on her own bed and wouldn’t give me a refund for a night I didn’t reserve myself but they made me pay for. Location is great and the atmosphere is fun!

    While my stay here wasn’t bad necessarily, I expected a lot more since this hostel had such high ratings. I’ve stayed in over a dozen hostels in many different countries and this one is subpar. The front desk staff didn’t seem like she knew what she was doing, you have to take your sheets off of your own bed when checking out, some toilets didn’t flush, and my bed was not comfortable. On the positive side, breakfast was decent and the common spaces were cool.
