    I had a great stay at Iguana Hostel. The hostel had a very nice atmosphere, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Especially the receptionist, Laura. She was very welcoming and fun to be around, and she went out of her way to make my stay more enjoyable. Overall a very responsible and friendly receptionist. I would highly recommend other travellers to visit this hostel.

    I had an amazing time at Iguana Hostel! This is a place in San Cristobal which I keep returning to. The open garden spaces, the welcoming atmosphere and the friendly staff makes this place feel like home. The hostel is unique and really captures the essence of the beautiful city. Dorms are comfortable and not too cramped, the rooftop areas make for an amazing location for a shared dinner or morning cup of coffee. I 100% recommend this place to my fellow travellers!

    This was my second time staying at Iguana. Although we had a short stay in the hostel this time, we had a good time. The location is perfect, super close to the center, in five minutes you get to the main street of San Cristóbal. Also just five minutes away you find supermarkets and the local market of the city and the artesanal market is even closer! The staff is very nice, the vibes are great, we really liked that the hostel has a nice common area and a tiny garden. 100% recommended!

    A simple accommodation with an incredible view on the terrace and good space to do yoga, I loved the location and the atmosphere is spectacular among all the travelers, we had a very happy time with the volunteers, who were always open to inform us and share. San Cris is magical! thank you iguana for such a good ending!

    Didn’t have my reservation when I arrived even after I payed a reservation fee. They blamed the wifi being bad because of construction. But the last time I checked coffee shops and Internet cafes are littered around San Cris. How hard is it to send a quick message saying “Hey we gave your bed to someone else”. If you can’t do that I doubt you can run a hostel.
