Fun, great vibes, friendly people, relaxing spot from traveling/bus ride around the country
Definitely making its way to the best hostel in the world! Love the pepper shrub and hammocks.

I would really like having newer pots & pans and more shower rooms especially during peak season.

We absolutley loved this hostel, we arrived in the morning, when the room was not ready yet after a night bus and we had the best welcome ever, one of the staff members Anthony a.k.a legend prepared the best panckakes for us and right away made us feel like home. The breaky there in general is absolutley yummy. They do something different everyday.We had a great time hanging out by the bonfire and enjoing delicious barbcue prepared by the owner and wonderfull staff. I highly recommend this place!

This was my first hostel ever, and I couldn't have asked for a better first-time experience. The place was nice, the staff was very warm, receptive and helpful. The rooms were good, and so were the beds. The common areas were great to be in, and it's well-located (near the local market, convenience stores and bars).
HELL YEAH IGUANA

i loved this hostel and place , i was planning to stay in san cristobal de las casas for 3 days and i stayed for more than a month in total ( came back 3 times during my trip).
The owner and staff are really helpfull and friendly , the rooms are clean and cosy, there are hot showers and every morning you get a amazing free breakfast and coffee.
I also think this is the best hostel to meet other backpackers and relax.
for the people that want to get up early in the morning, its quiet in the hostel after 10 pm, but a lot to do in the centrum at night
if i go back to mexico, ill go back to hostel iguana in san cristobal..

Room Tip: the wifi is working better in the girlsdorm than the mixed dorm

Our main asset is our staff: travellers on the road, who love making friends, and speak your language. The IGUANA HOSTEL is situated in a historic Barrio del Cerrillo, with a panoramic view from the terrace. The hostel is located near Santo Domingo a church surrounded and a colourful handcraft market, 2 blocks from the public market and only 7 minutes walk from the very heart of the city: la Catedral and el Parque Central. ... more   less
