We stayed in a triple room for a week and this place is just great! Room is big with a lot of storage, has a working desk and a ceiling fan. The shared bathrooms are kept spotless, the cleanest hostel showers I have ever seen! The company common area is packed with info about things to do in, around and...

We stayed here for two nights and it was great. The rooms are spacious and clean. The facilities are also very clean. It is located right next to a cafe which is run by the same people. It is only a short walk into town from the hostel also.

Simply a breath of fresh air. The host could not do enough and was extremely helpful and polite. The cost to stay was also set at a very reasonable price. The accommodation was clean, tidy with large comfy beds. The washing facilities were modern, clean and functional. The food was first class and at a good price. During my stay...

Iguana Azul is, by far, the best hostel I have ever encountered. We stayed in a single room, which was super comfortable, clean, and quiet (except for those roosters that seem to go off every morning at 3!) I felt certain that Howard the owner cared about his guests, their safety, and making sure they found the best Copan has...

This is a super clean place with great wifi, reliable hot water and friendly staff. I particularly liked the toilets and bathrooms being muliple separate cubicles so there was never a need to wait to use the facilities. Altho there is no kitchen to cook or prepare meals, there is a communal fridge for snacks and drinks. Which is good...

A great little hostel with a mix of dorms and single rooms for reasonable prices. The food next door was great - the best way to start the day before seeing the ruins - and the staff were really lovely. The only thing it could improve would be to have plug sockets next to beds, which is arguably not just...

Stayed two nights while visiting the Copan Ruins. The hostel was great, showers are hot, beds are comfy, and the wifi was some of the fastest I've seen in Central America. They even have a generator so when the town loses power they keep going. There's a restaurant next door with awesome food, a tad pricey on a backpacker's budget...

Spent two nights and had a lovely time. My room was clean, comfortable, and affordable. Excellent wifi, decent showers, and unlimited drinking water! Host Howard was very helpful (especially for this non-Spanish speaker) in organizing a shuttle and horseback riding for me.

I stayed at Iguana Azul for 3 nights as a solo female traveller. The hostel is at the edge of town, but is only 5 minutes walk from the centre and means you'll only hear crickets at night rather than traffic or people. The hostel itself is spotlessly clean and has all the information you could possibly need. The hostel...

“Corner rooms have two windows for extra sunlight.”
  • Not many hostel rooms give you an open closet, nightstand, and desk.
  • Breakfast next door at Casa de Cafe B&B
  • Separate toilets & showers really prevent waiting for the bathroom.
