    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!

    Wonderful Hostel in a really convenient location for exploring Oaxaca city. Beds were good and Showers were fine. My favourite Hostel I’ve stayed in so far. Both the volunteers and the guests were very friendly and welcoming, and the rooftop bar/terrace is great. Thank you !

    Had the most excellent vibe. The easiest hostel to meet people in, and the way it was setup was very conducive to social interactions. The rooftop bar was a great space and I already miss staying here and all the connections I made with the people around me. Would definitely stay here again if I find myself here. It got a little hot at night and the place could be cleaner but the rest of it makes up for it.

    Very nice hostel in general. Comfy beds in the 16beddorm. Nice rooftop terrace. Friendly stuff but we got kicked out at 11pm cause they turn off all the lights and you have to be in your room..

    Very Good

    It was a good hostel in a great location for Oaxaca City. One of my favourite dorms in terms of layout - you get your own little space which was great for spreading stuff out and feeling at home. Security was good and lockers big. I felt cleanliness could be better. Sinks and showers seemed unclean to me. I found the staff a little un friendly and not very knowledgeable at all (a lot are workaway/volunteers I believe). Breakfast was great though!!

    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.
