My sister and I stayed 2 nights in Copan, at Iguana Azul. This hostel is by far the best option to stay in Copan. Getting there was easy - we took a tuktuk from the bus stop which was like, $2USD. I think the rate is a flate rate anywhere in the area, from what I remember. It's 5-6 blocks... More

Great price-value hostel. The facilities are cosy, clean and safe. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The location is perfect. And if you have been travelling for a long time in Central America, you will be happy to take a WARM shower in a very clean bathroom ! There is nothing bad to say about this place.

After reading the reviews of this place there was no doubt this was the best option to stay in Copán and yes it didn´t deceive us. We stayed in a private room and although it was small, it was just perfect. You can just notice when people care and they pay attention to details. The showers and toiletts were probably... More

Probably the best option for backpackers in Copán Ruinas. Location is just a few blocks outside of the main plaza -- not a big deal. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful with everything. Wi-fi was surprisingly good, and the place is clean. Electronic devices took forever to charge, but I don't think this is the hostel's fault. Seemed like the... More

The Iguana Azul is the best place to stay in Copan. The service is unbelievable, it is extremely clean and well kept. I would definitely stay here again on another trip to Copan. It is located just outside of the city center so you don't have to deal with the noise of the center, but it is only a few... More

Our charity, Bless the Children, booked in advance & Howard (the owner) was a real gem helping us get our stay set up over email. He greeted us upon arrival & helped us get settled. Although our trek by bus from La Esperanza took much longer than expected and we were about 2 hours later than we'd said, Howard was... More

I stayed here three times now. If you are looking for a peaceful, sunny, clean, friendly place, this is one of the best I have experienced. The rooms have a lot of light and space, clean and comfy beds, and you even get a fresh towel to use in the spacious and (actually) hot showers! They provide you with free... More

Hot showers with water pressure, need I say more? Yes, because this hostel is unique. Offering dorms and private rooms this hostel is well maintained and located in a beautiful town. There is night security and lockers with locks in dorms, a very welcoming and safe environment!

This hostel was just what we wanted, the private room was a great size, clean and nicely decorated. The showers and toilets outside we're clean and had hot water. There is a small communal area inside and a table set on a patio outside. There are lots of useful pieces of information in the communal area, including best places to... More

I stayed with my wife another friend and three university students. We used two private rooms and three beds in the dorm. The owner has done it different. All the rooms have shared bath rooms but private rooms are spaciuos and very clean. The outside bathrooms are spotless set up with 3 toilets, three showers and 3 hand sinks. I... More
