I loved my stay at Iguana Azul. I would actually like to call it a boutique hostel, since there are so many beautiful details and there's a thought behind every little thing. It's very well kept, clean and equipped with everything a traveller would need such as free drinking water, fridge, lockers to borrow, great internet connection and tourist information.... More

I spent two (2) nights in the town of Copan Ruins. Traveling by myself I chose to economize by booking a bed in one of the dorms at the hostel recommended by www. tripadvisor.com: the Iguana Azul Copan. No wonder that the Iguana Azul is rated among the best hostels IN THE WORLD! I concur. Spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds,... More

Rooms are standard dorm accommodation, a little cramped but clean & reasonably comfortable. Small but comfortable common area for socialising. Friendly staff, although you'll probably have to go to the cafe next door (which serves good breakfasts & fantastic banana bread) to find them.

This was the first hostel I've ever stayed at. After staying in 11 more hostels on my trip, it is still one of my favorites. Very clean, cute, and cheap for a relatively small space. The staff was very friendly as well. I also appreciated having a little station to wash then hang my laundry. The cafe next door is... More

I recently stayed at the Iguana Azul hostel and absolutely loved my stay. The location is perfect a few minute walk from central park but on a nice quiet street; so close to everything but not too much commotion. Howard and his whole team are all incredibly friendly and helpful. The showers were hot and and rooms had everything you... More

Large clean private room with shared washrooms/hot showers. Great common space with lots of information on walls and shelves to plan your trip. Very nice staff. Strong wifi. Free water. There is a more expensive and affiliated accommodation next door with beautiful setting for restaurant where I ate all my breakfasts while at Iguana. Make sure to visit Via Via... More

This place was a dream. The rooms were spacious and perfectly cleaned. There was free water and the owner offered great advice on just about everything. The showers were the best I found in all of Central America. Heavenly.

I was lucky enough to stay here twice and both times had a great experience. The staff is super friendly and Sid, the manager, speaks great English and is full of very useful tips and info. I stayed in a private room which was very clean and comfortable and then in a dorm with some new mates the second time.... More

This hostel sparkles with cleanliness and is likely the best place to stay in Copan Ruinas. The showers are piping hot, the beds confortable and the staff are very kind and helpful as well as efficient. The only thing missing is a cozier lounge/common area. Some ofm the shelves seem redundant - instead, adding some comfy chairs/armchairs, cozying up the... More
