Had an amazing experience at the Iguana hostel- every breakfast or a chill night at the place was genuinely exactly what I wanted and expected. No doubts this is where you want to book your hostel at.

Excellent breakfast, excellent beds, excellent kitchen, and the best staff! We forget a couple of things at the hostel and the staff made sure to keep it for us until we came back. Great atmosphere at night.

About
Description
Seven years since opening, IGUANA HOSTEL is well known among backpackers for its family, chilled out and fun atmosphere. People come to the Iguana for two nights and they stay for two weeks... This is because Iguana More Hostel can host only up to 27 people, so it's easy to make friends to share fun with, and we will always take good care of you. Our main asset is our staff: travellers on the road, who love making friends, and speak your language. The IGUANA HOSTEL is situated in a historic Barrio del Cerrillo, with a panoramic view from the terrace. The hostel is located near Santo Domingo a church surrounded and a colourful handcraft market, 2 blocks from the public market and only 7 minutes walk from the very heart of the city: la Catedral and el Parque Central.
