#11 of 252 Specialty lodging in Cali
The Iguana has been welcoming backpackers to Cali, Colombia's salsa capital since 1998. The Hostel, with a green garden and excellent location in a quiet and secure residential neighbourhood is an oasis of calm but yet a stonethrow away from the local nightlife and restaurants.

Hostel was dead when we were there. Double room was pretty poor really and bathroom did smell a bit. Staff were friendly and location is ok as it is 5 minute walk from neighbourhood with lots of restaurants

We found this chillout place really randomly when we walked through area looking for any good-price accommodation. We didn´t expect much but the hostel really surprised us! For the first night, we had dorm only for ourselves and the same for the garden. Staff is really nice and helpful,talking with them was a good practice of spanish :-) Cats are simply gorgeous although hide all your cables because they may bite them :-D

Going there you don t expect too much, but then when you arrive, you almost get a heartattack when you realize your looking at the most beautiful,warm and friendly woman ever. It s a little bit like in the disney movie pocahontas. Everything s clean and easy-going.the breakfast is really good!it s a really honest place,where you can feel a good vibe going out of the woman who manages it and her nice son. For what you get there, it s realy cheap.don t go there please, i wanna have it for myself!

A lovely place with a lovely staff that felt like home. In a nice area within walking distance to Centro and a nice place to chill (if you're into laying in Hammocks and listening to birds.) Help was never hard to receive here. Highly recommended

Iguana is a little difficult to find and the hill you have to climb is pretty impressive. Recently changed ownership a nice Colombian lady now runs the place. Rooms good size and relatively economic. Clean, large good kitchen - internet works pretty good although was a little slow at peak times. Good tourist information and comfortable social area. When we were there is was relatively quiet but that may have been the time of year. If you do not want to stay in the colonial centre this is a really good alternative
