    This is just by far the most interactive social hostel I've been at. Everyone is wonderful and the staff are the best I've seen. The bed set up is also so unique and this should be the formula for other hostel bed arrangements.

    Loved Iguana Hostel! The vibe is so perfect whether you're someone who enjoys relaxing solo, hanging out with fellow travelers in their bar area, or going out and partying later in the night. The staff were so cool and we all hung out quite a bit, and I didn't know this before going to Oaxaca, but this hostel's location was the best out of all the hostels I looked at. Don't hesitate to stay here! You'll have a great time and make some great friends too if you want!

    Friggin love this hostel. The dorm rooms are lofted so no one has to sleep in a bunk. The roof bar is an awesome place to hang out and socialize and they make sure to turn off the music around 11 so people can still go to bed at a reasonable hour. Also the staff are all amazing and friendly. Would 100% stay here again :))

    The owner is really nice. He has set up a whatsapp group for the hostel and you can get great recommendations and find others to do the day trips with around the city. The morning breakfast was good and the rooftop bar and hammocks make for a great chill out during the day and way to meet people at night. Location is spot on and the staff were very friendly. The only issue you may run into is the large 16 bed dorm if you are a light sleeper.

    Aside from incident by one of roommates, that was addressed by staff, good value and location. My only suggestion is to invest more in the upkeep of the facilities, that it’s old does not need to translate into broken down.

    I stayed here for the location but the dorm I was in was very run down, with an old coily mattress, old sheets and blanket, broken banister, and a lock on the door that was difficult for everyone to open, which caused a lot of noise disturbance with people coming and going at night. So I wouldn't stay here again. There are hostels in the same price range that are better maintained.

    Friendly hostel in good location. Decent social areas and ample, clean kitchen. Also, breakfast hot and hearty. That said, some of the facilities are in very rickety state - some doors and stairs to the terrace are in a pretty sorry condition. The rooftop, though fun to spend time on, was just filthy.

    The infrastructure is very old and it seems that suddenly everything can fall apart. The bathroom is disgusting. The positive things are the location and the individual power sockets.
