We stayed for four nights and found the Iguana Azul (which had been recommended by a couple of sources) to be awesome. Friendly owner and staff, handy location, comfortable clean beds and rooms and an overall really nice feel to the place. All round lovely experience. Definitely recommended! There's quite a bit to do in the area and there's a... More

I have stayed in a lot of hostels over the years but this one is the best. From the get-go, emails were fast, informative and helpful. A double room was $18 and they are big compared to other hostel doubles. Everything was super clean and comfortable including the living area where there was also free water. The amount of information... More

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. I did not have a reservation upon arrival, but the owners, Howard and Angela, were quick to accommodate me. Luckily, there was a private room available as I was traveling solo. There was a large group there at the time occupying the shared rooms. My room was spacious and cleaned daily as... More

This hostel is very clean and beds are comfortable. It's a colonial house very well renewed to work as a hostel. Showers are great and it has a small little garden. The staff is super nice and helpful. The only downside is that they don't have a bar/restaurant at the hostel. However, the same owner has a B&B next door... More

Rooms were clean and comfortable, showers and bathrooms spacious. There was a place to wash laundry too. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a large group of student travellers, and they accommodated us with a discount and we filled all the dorm rooms. However, the price quote didn't include 19% taxes so beware.

I can't emphasize enough how amazing this hostel is. Super information about the area, amazing rooms, showers and communal spaces, very friendly staff, and on and on and on... The rooms are more tastefully constructed than most luxury hotels, and the details are all on-point, from the trippy-tiled floors to the locally made, all wooden furnishings. The mattress was great,... More

As a budget traveller I've seen my share of dormitories though I can't ever recall having the bed made up every morning. It's that kind of attention to detail that earns Howard and his staff kudos from this traveller. Nice work all. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.
