Property Description

Iguana Hostel is one of the very first real backpackers hostels in San Cristobal, well known for its party and fun atmosphere.

Iguana is the best choice for a solo traveller and a guarantee of making new friends with an exceptionally friendly atmosphere, thanks to communal areas and activites on offer such as: bar in the garden, cinema nights, pub crawl, BBQ, bon-fire at night, communal dinners, yoga classes, travel desk, tours and transfers to Guatemala. We cook full breakfast, different menu everyday!
Our greatest asset is our staff, travellers on the road who speak your language and understand your needs.

Since July 2017, Iguana has expanded to a 2nd house accross the square: both houses (Iguana Verde and Iguana Azul) boast spacious gardens. Now Iguana offers economic bunk-bed dorms, higher standard dorms with individual beds and a view over the garden and the town, as well as private rooms.
However, we don't sell beds: we sell unique experience of Chiapas!!!

    I had a great time at Iguana! I planned on staying for two days but ended up staying for a week. The staff are so welcoming and there is always something to do around town. Iguana provides a full breakfast every morning (I had pancakes, traditional Mexican breakfasts and selections of fruit). I would highly recommend staying here.

    We won't forget our stay at Iguana! The staff are welcoming and friendly, they make this place special! Other perks: free breakfast that changes every day and is freshly made, great location, comfortable beds, clean + good facilities, chill + social vibes. The staff organise activities like family dinners or day trips which is a great way to meet people and make friends. A huge shout out to Juanito who took us to the doctors when we were sick. I 100% recommend staying here.

    Very Good

    The hostel declares itselfs as a party hostel and as a place to meet a lot of new people. when i arrived there were three other guests at the hostel (and like 8 volunteers). The bar was closed, the offers they are advertising only take place in the high season which is not said anywhere! Furthermore we told the volunteers that we need breakki at 8 as we were doing a day trip and even if they knew and breakfast officially starts at 8 they did not managed to make us breakfast! disappointing stay.

    L'hostel est vraiment a rafraichir : - Armoire cassée - Tête de lit cassée - Robinet de lavabo cassé - Drap déchiré et très usé Avec en prime des puces dans le lit... Personne n'etait la le matin à 8h00 pour le petit dejeuner. Point positif. Le staff est très sympa.
