    Absolutely loved Iguana! An amazing hostel that so much thought has been put into. The bunk beds are lofts rather than connected beds which is great and everything about this place from the vibe, to the people, volunteers, layout is 10/10. Although it’s a super fun place with parties on the roof at night, it isn’t so disruptive that you can’t sleep so it’s a perfect balance.

    This is thew third time if stayed at the Iguana Hostel in Oaxaca city and it will always be my first choice in oaxaca city. The location cant be beat. There is a lot of communal space to chat with other people and spaces where you can escape and relax. This hostel probably also had the hottest showers out of any hostel ive been in and the beds were comfy in the shared dorm. The staff are incredible and I know how to dancing lessons because of them.

    Kindness in the chaos, my flights were cancelled the borders shutting and everything has been going crazy. Thank you to the guys in iguana for providing a space to escape the crazy. They are spacing out the beds and have a tv for chilling with Netflix and prime. if things get locked done. Good luck Oaxaca and Iguana!

    Stayed a week. Great location. Great price. Friendly vibe, with a lovely rooftop terrace (not too much of a view though). Some lovely people, some not, as anywhere else, though one particular staff lady was consistently quite rude and dismissive to me. If staying in the large bedroom, you might just hit your head more than once on the overhead, which hangs about 5 feet above the ground, and if you're somewhat tall you will hurt your neck after a while bending down whenever you stand up. It's ok!

    The hostel was dirty, the staff were rude, there was a general bad attitude amongst all staff which I think rubbed off on to guests. The private room which I had did not have a lamp next to the bed and the bed linen felt dirty. The stair case up to the roof top bar is not safe.
