    Iguana Hostel became my home! It has such a great vibe. I was there in 'low season' so there weren't many people around but i made great friends with the volunteers who worked there who told me a lot of things to do around town and made me feel like a part of the family! The breakfasts are amazing and different everyday, and the showers are always nice and warm which is great because they told me its getting colder now! I would reccomend this place to everyone!!!

    The place is really good situated. 1 min from the big fresh fruit and vegetable market. Also 3 min to both boulevards where all shops and restaurants are. The people who work here are very friendly and super helpful. I got all information I needed especially good insider tips around san cristobal. Also very clean and and a nice atmosphere.

    I stayed at iguana hostel for a few days!! I loved this place, the breakfast is delicious, they have movie nights at the bar and family meals on Fridays. The staff is super helpful and friendly, and the garden in the blue iguana is absolutely beautiful! (full of butterflies and hummingbirds) Location is great, only a few minutes from the center and right next to the Mercado.

    It's really close to the center, super well-located and the staff is really helpful. They showed us how to get to everything, gave us the propper attention and prepared a BOMB breakfast. Their WiFi is quite reliable and all their facilities work really well. The only down side is that their quiet hours start quite early, so it wasn't ideal if you're a traveler who wants to party or stay up all night chatting and having a good time with fellow travelers. It's perfect for people who want to rest

    We paid for a private room with private bathroom and we couldnt use because there was no hot water. The rooms also smelt. Apart from this was a pleasant stay, good wifi, good breakfast.

    I liked Iguana hostel. The staff were incredibly friendly as were the other guests. It has a nice vibe. The private we stayed in was incredibly dusty though and sent my hay fever into overdrive but apart from that it was okay. The hygiene of the breakfast cook left a little to be desired (I had a hair in my breakfast) and I got poopy after but if you don’t have a sensitive stomach you should be fine ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Location is good, just a couple of blocks from the centre so it’s very quiet!
