“A Huge Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

We had lunch at Iguana Cafe today and were extremely disappointed. The paninis we ordered were terrible! The bread was dry, there was very little meat on the sandwiches and there was no type of spread such as mayonnaise, etc. on the panini. Based on the price we paid we felt the panini was overpriced; poor value for the quantity we were served. We ate 50 meals out in Leon last month and the paninis we ate at Iguana are by far the most disappointing.

We visited Leon in September 2011. We didn't actually stay in the Iguana Hostel and Cafe but we did spend quite a bit of time here. Since our accommodations didn't have internet we would go to the Hostel every couple of days to check our email and have something to eat and drink. The food was excellent and the drinks were good too! We also took the opportunity to have our laundry cleaned and this service was also very good - very professional. They charge by the piece rather than by weight.

Although we didn't see any of the rooms, the areas that we did see were all clean and well maintained. Also, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely consider staying here in the future.

In my opinion the best hostel in León. 100% clean, safe and what's most important - quiet. I planned to spend a couple of nights and I stayed for three weeks. Great people - Annibal and Eric, who own the place, as well as the girls who work there, made me feel like home. I highly recommend this place. Perfect place to go back to after crazy nights in loud clubs of this incredible town. And I'll be back :)
