“economico, calm, nice and sooooo clean!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

I spent here 2 nights and I was so suprised, because hostal is so clean! you can laugh, but compares to other hostals in central america (I travelled through panama, costa rica and south nicaragua) iguana is extremly clean! and this is really nice, you feel comfortable and safe. hostal is new, staff is friendly and they care about the customer, place is in the center of Leon which is great, you walk like 1 minute to Iglesia de la Merced, you have bars and shops around you. but at the same time you can´t feel it inside, its cozy and calm. they have nice new restrooms, shower, kitchen, tv room, wifi, computer... and great price - 5$ per bed in dorms! and dorms has 3 beds. I recomend it a lot!

Room Tip: nice, clean and calm! and economico!

Really liked my stay there. Very clean. Safe. Near everything worthy in town. The hostess was very nice and explained me that this Hostel used to be a brothel after the revolution ! ;) Just ask her some tips about Leon and surroundings, she knows all about it. I recommend the Iguana when in Leon. Going back there soon.

Simple hostel, but had a good sleep. The bed room was small, but the matrass was ok, and so were the shower and airco. The place had no atmosphere at all, No travelers vibe there. Nevertheless, located downtown so enough relaxed and cosy places around the corner. For just a night in Leon the hostel is fine. Didnt speak much to the staff. Not necessary anywa in this hostel.

I would stay here if I go back to Leon. The rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly and the relax area is cozy and nice. We only had breakfast here and it was really good. It has a good location and it felt safe. It's a quiet hotel. I would recommend this hostel.

Room Tip: You can get a room with A/C and Tv but then you pay almost the double. The rooms with fan works just...

We got put in the Iguana due to an overbooking at the hostel we had originally reserved at (Hostal Colibri). For us this was a huge disappiontment due to the fact that the Iguana lacks a guest kitchen, and that was the reson we booked with the other place.

The room we got at the Iguana was nice, spacious and clean. However, it was super hot due to the powerful fan in the ceiling being too high up in the celing to provide a real cool off. The hostel is nice in itself, all though a bit over priced. The staff were very service friendly (even though no one speaks english) and tried their best to accomodate us.

The place is clean, seems safe, rooms are decent and staff friendly enough but it kind of lacks any character and I thought it was a little overpriced for what you get. I think you can find better places with more character for less $
