Could only stay one night because they were booked for the rest of the time we were there, but it was a lovely little property with SUPER comfy beds and a friendly atmosphere. The location's a bit tricky though, especially trudging through mud and dark streets when the electricity is out (frequently).

Thanks so much for your two thumbs up review! At Iguana Azul we work hard to to maintain our high standards. Two points I'd like to respond to: 1- The streets leading to Iguana Azul from downtown are all fully paved, so there is absolutely no mud or hassle getting to us! 2- Iguana Azul is proud to announce the...

Stayed here for a few nights in one of the private double rooms. A clean and well kept place, and the common showers and toilets are well cleaned too. The use of the wifi is a plus. There was some noise every now and then, from other guests in the common areas, but the nights were OK. We would also... More

Iguana Azul Hostel is nicely located on the fringe of the center of town (the whole town is walkable) which makes it nice and quiet and in a great local neighborhood. You do have to 'buzzed' in which can take time on occasion. The immediate common area has a huge amount of information scattered around various parts. There's information regarding... More

The room was spacious as far as dorm rooms go. It was extremely clean and the decor is nice. It was a little annoying that they didn't give you a key to the rooms and that you had to ring the doorbell at the front door and just hope that someone happened to be near it when you needed to... More

This little hostel is one of the fondest memories of my trip to Central America. Perfectly located just outside the town centre, close enough for everything to be within walking distance but tucked away enough for it to be lovingly quiet at night; very clean, laidback, nice decor. After a long and sweaty day at the ruins, it was wonderful... More

Husband and I stayed in a private room for 3 nights, $15 for the room. Location: A few blocks outside of "central" Copan Ruinas but everything is very walkable. I liked being outside of town since it was the busy holiday season and the streets were packed - I could enjoy the culture and festivities while in town but have... More

After staying in a dark room in San Pedro Sula this hostel was a welcome change. We had a good sized private room for $15 and the shared shower facilities were immaculate. The hostel is located just outside of the central downtown area and we had some trouble finding it from the bus station but appreciated the quiet (roosters excepted)... More

After more than a month traveling in bad to average hostel it was a great surprise to bump into Iguana Azul! The place is very clean and quiet and dorms are top range with comfortable bunk beds, very clean bedding (mine looked like new!) and enough cover to endure the chilly night temperature. The clean all-tiled bathrooms are the best... More

Unbelievable cheap, yet so clean and organized. My mom and I stayed there for 2 nights and while we don't normally book places with shared bathrooms, these ones were lovely - stalls with full doors in the garden and cleaned (very well) daily. We had a private room for $15/night. There is a common room with chairs, books, and lots... More

I stayed in Copan for a couple of days to visit the Copan Ruinas before starting a medical mission. Iguana Azul was very affordable with clean dorms. The toilets and showers were clean, wifi, free drinking water which was great. Howard offers accomodations for all budgets. Very friendly staff and I was able to use their clothes line for my...
