I stayed at Iguana Azul for 3 nights as a solo female traveller. The hostel is at the edge of town, but is only 5 minutes walk from the centre and means you'll only hear crickets at night rather than traffic or people. The hostel itself is spotlessly clean and has all the information you could possibly need. The hostel...

The room was quite clean and warm. Owners of this facility definitely chose a great design to accompany their small cafe attached to the hostel. Beds were comfortable, staff was quite pleasant, and the countryside was gorgeous. I can't wait to return!!!

First place we visited in Honduras and it was wonderful. We had a beautiful private room that was in our budget and it was nice and cool with the ceiling fan. Beds were very comfortable and the rooms and facilities were really clean as well. The staff are so kind and are happy to answer any questions for you or...

I've stayed at the Iguana Azul several times and it's always been clean, quiet, and comfortable - very good value. It's a short walk from the town centre so it's both convenient and quiet. Breakfast next door is a nice treat.

La Iguana Azul used to be the first hostel in Copan back in 1997. It's still a nice place to stay, 5 minutes out of the city's center in a quiet area and offers good wifi, comfy beds and towels for guests. There's no breakfast included though, but the cafe next door (casa de café) offers an extensive start of...

Great place to stay. A couple minute walk and you're in town. Maybe 20/25 to the ruins. Place was clean, comfortable and they had hot water. They have a few dorm style rooms and privates. I chose to stay in the private room. Was never too loud here. There's a guard outside after 5, and he stays all night. Would...

Nicest hostel I stayed at in Honduras. Friendly helpful staff and owners, comfy and clean rooms, good warm showers and fast reliable WiFi. Quiet. Not a party hostel. 3 mins walking and you're in the town centre.

A nice, clean place to stay while visiting Copan. The general area offers no shortage of recommendations on attractions, restaurants, bars and everything you may want to visit during your stay. The beds were comfortable and getting a good night sleep was not a problem. The owner also owns a good restaurant that's right next door to the hotel.

Very nice place. A little bit outside the mainstreets. But very very close! And it was actually nice since it was calm and view was beautiful from here. And it was safe to walk around at night! The hostel was quiet, clean, hot showers and enough toilets and showers. Space in the dorm and little details like shelfs and free...
