A social hostel, great for couples, groups, and solo travelers
Dorm Bed: $8.63
Santa Cruz La Laguna ,
It seems like the Iguana has been around forever, and it offers something for everyone. First, the rooms are varied in both price and level of luxury. They offer dorms with shared bathrooms, all the way up to nice private ensuite rooms for (gasp!) older clientele who are also interested in the social aspects of hostels. While they are not a party hostel per se, on some evenings things do get busy as they have costume parties, a bar and restaurant, and live music.
They specifically do not offer Wi-Fi, because they highly encourage guests to get out, mingle, socialize, and enjoy the social aspects of the establishment and the surrounding sights and activities. After all, you can hike, swim, scuba dive, engage with locals in small villages, and more. Isn't that why you came?
They have hot showers, pool table and games, TV, internet (but not Wi-Fi), and an onsite bar and restaurant. They receive rave reviews from guests, and always have!
