Iguana Hostel was a great place! The location was perfect, kitchen was great. There was so much common space and places to relax outside your room. Your beds were more like a personal loft space where you can actually walk around which was great! Gabriel was an amazing staff member, super friendly and helpful. The place felt a bit run down, some of the common spaces did not feel clean. Also the bar played loud music from 5-11pm that echoed throughout all of the common spaces every day.
