Great base when located in Copan, 3-5minute walk from town centre, but it is nice to be tucked away. Quiet location, located next to La Casa de Cafe (B&B, cafe). Stayed in private room, rooms are basic, but you don't need more than that! Ceiling fan, but is cool here in Copan, pack wisely (my room had a blanket which... More

This is an excellent choice of accommodation at Copán. The staff, particularly the owners, are exceptionally helpful and accommodating, the large foyer is packed full of information on local sights, transportation, etc., and the rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts served in the garden next to the hostel are delicious and reasonably priced, made all the more... More

When we arrived we couldn't really find the reception because we didn't know it was at the cafe next door. Apart from this, the lady at the reception was really nice and offered great hospitality. The room was good and clean, the showers were especially good with hot water. Also, you can refill your water bottles for free which is... More

An absolutely spotless hostel. Probably my favourite hostel in Central America so far. My partner and I stayed in a private room and it's super basic but clean, open and with a perfect wifi connection. No rooms have their own bathrooms but it is absolutely not necessary because the shared showers, toilets and sinks are outside, and in this case... More

We stayed in the private double room which was spotless. I'd forgotten there wasn't a private bathroom but it wasn't a problem because it's so nice to have the sinks outside in that climate, it feels fresher. The showers and loos were perfectly clean too. I read in a guide book that the hostel is far from the main square... More

My Boyfriend and I planned on staying for one night and ended up staying for an extra night purely because of this place (And the delicious Huervos Rancheros next door) The private room had was beautiful, with high ceilings. It was nicely decorated swell. The outdoor bathrooms were super clean, even though they were outside. Friendly staff and good location.... More

The hostel is a little away from the main square but this shouldn't put you off. Has nice dorms and private rooms (what I saw) and all toilets and bathrooms are shared outside. There is also a neat lounge with loads of info as well as helpful owner. Beds at decent size and clean and given Copan and off season... More

The Iguana Azul was a lovely place to stay. I was here for 2 nights on a side trip from Guatemala. The hostel is located about 3 blocks from the main plaza, a short walk from everything, including the ruins. Noone actually mans the hostel, but it's easy enough to pop next door to the cafe ( which has amazing... More

I only stayed at Iguana Azul for one night but I wish I could of stayed longer. Howie the owner was extremely helpful to my friends and I. I was stuck in Guatemala and he was able to push our reservations back and responded to my emails very quickly. He even gave us suggestions on things to do and places... More

Howard the manager and all his staff were terrific. They were helpful with directions and activities about the area. They even helped book our coffee plantation tour and assistanted us with our next destination. The hostel is extremely clean and we felt very safe as there was always someone around even at night. They would wait for us to arrive... More
