You're not gonna get a nice shower here but the rooftop bar more than makes up for it. Lots of great common areas with hammocks, wonderful kitchen, bike maps, short walk to the bus station, very relaxed place.

Hostel Iguana provides you with everything you need. Neat facilities, clean beds a chillout are and a rooftop. Apart from that the place has not a lot to offer. At least during the 3 days I stayed there, no events were organized, the owners were helpful when we asked questions but otherwise everyone was just by themself most of the time. Against the advertisement the internet was rather slow, which shouldn't bother you as long as you don't depend on it for work or anything like that.

New hostel, with upgrades still to be made, but it's on its way. Has everything you need for a comfortable stay in Oaxaca. Staff are super helpful, and the Rocco (the dog) is fantastic. For what you're paying, you really can't ask for more. Great value for your money.

Awesome location - traveller run- all volunteers and the owner, a transplant from Australia with his adorable pooch Rocco. Really chill vibes here, cool roof top patio loads of space to hang out up there, do yoga. Don't stay in the loft dorm- noise carries soooo much in there, much smaller space, as cool as it is, if there is a snorer- you're screwed. Place is older and needs some TLC but staff are lovely, kitchen is huge, loads of common space, good price and prime location!

The hostel has all the facilities that you need, even individual plugs for each bed. There’s a beautiful terrace to hang out on but it closes at 11pm which is pretty ridiculous. The owner actually kicked us out of that area one night although a very loud party was happening next door. He then made us all climb down a very dangerous ladder instead of using the stairs and when we said it was dangerous he said he “didn’t care”. Like he was trying to prove a point and that ruined my experience here.
