I can't say enough good things about this great hostel in San Cristobal! But it is more than just a hostel - it is a home away from home for all travelers. The small size, family style meals, and friendly staff make this an amazing stop on any journey. The owner, Rudy, goes above and beyond to take care of each guest's needs from insider tips on local tours or access to a doctor/needed medicines for an awful stomach bug. I spent so many great afternoons hanging on the patio with friends, cooking with other guests from the hostel, and exploring the city from the centrally located Iguana. If you are traveling through San Cristobal for any amount of time, this is the perfect place to land.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Four years since opening, IGUANA HOSTEL is well known among backpackers for its family, chilled out and fun atmosphere. People come to the Iguana for two nights and they stay for two weeks... This is because Iguana Hostel can host only up to 27 people, so it's easy to make friends to share fun with, and we will always take good care of you. 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
