I have stayed in many hostels in Colombia over the past 6 years and the Iguana ranks up there amongst my top 10 favorites.
Why? It provides the winning combination ...
The Iguana is located in an attractive, safe and quiet neighbourhood, in the Granada district in the northern part of Cali, it is walking distance to everything from supermarkets to nightlife.
The main house has well appointed quiet rooms and a small 5-bed dorm, the adjoining house has dorms, some with private baths.
The gardens provide an urban oasis, including hammocks, where you are tempted to spend way too much time....
Salsa and Spanish language teachers, who teach at the hostel, are excellent and the staff themselves are friendly & helpful.
Recent kitchen renovations have improved the cooking facilities.
The result is a warm, friendly, social hostel which you never want to leave .... except perhaps for some salsa....
I look forward to returning ASAP :)
