    Had a great stay, thanks. Will come back for sure on my next visit to Oaxaca. Loved the breakfast of the sweet Mexican lady! Amazing roof terrace where you can chill all day long and have a beer at the bar in the evening.

    They have game of thrones on the roof as it happens and I missed it .. Breakfast was good, the room has fans, funny little personal locker tables and the beds are comfortable. The place feels like it has been put together with love and is evolving. Met the owner when he was cleaning the toilets, respect!

    Just WOW!! You have to visit this place and feel that positive energy. Comfortable beds, everything is very clean and the breakfast is just awesome. The staff and the other people at the hostel treat you like family. Everything starts at the rooftop bar with a cold beer and some mezcal ;-) with the right amount of money they give you the beer for 20 pesos!! That's a really nice promo.

    This place was so fun, staff were amazing and friendly, we spent way too much time at the roof top bar (a simple but well made cocktail list and cheap beers available from 5-11 every day!), our private room was simple but had everything as needed including a floor fan which was effective... We particularly loved the breakfasts, hammocks and friendly atmosphere! Perfect location too.

    Best hostel in Oaxaca if you are looking for a fun and friendly place. I met people from other hostels and they all said that they wish they would be at Iguana. Every night people would meet on the upstairs bar that has a nice view of the city and just hang out. Quiet hours are at 11pm but at that point people go out together. I would definitely stay there again.

    Lovely hostel with cool courtyard and hammocks etc and a rooftop bar upstairs. There is a strict curfew but would still recommend.

    I don't want to say the staff is bad since they are all extremely friendly, but it was volunteers that just arrived when I was there so they couldn't really help me with finding buses and activities, which was disappointing since my friend was there a week ago and got the best hints from them! The lady makes delicious breakfast in the morning but there could be a bit more cleaning. Easy walk to most places (bus stations are far but collectivo around the corner), nice ambiance and rooftop.

    Really cool hostel, great rooftop bar and lots of places to chill. Easy to meet people so a great vibe for solo travelers. A bit cliquey at times (almost too 'cool') but that's just down to who happens to also stay there. Staff were friendly and helpful. Dorms are nice but could do with better ventilation

    Very basic Shared bathrooms, not the best water pressure in showers, hot water in one shower was not working Front door locked with a key - no curfew Lockers for an own padlock in rooms Central location and within walking distance to the ADO station Staff consisted of volunteers who had just started at the time when I stayed there Common areas close at night to avoid disturbing other guests Breakfast included but only from 9am so if leaving early no substitute was offered
