Nicest hostel I stayed at in Honduras. Friendly helpful staff and owners, comfy and clean rooms, good warm showers and fast reliable WiFi. Quiet. Not a party hostel. 3 mins walking and you're in the town centre.

A nice, clean place to stay while visiting Copan. The general area offers no shortage of recommendations on attractions, restaurants, bars and everything you may want to visit during your stay. The beds were comfortable and getting a good night sleep was not a problem. The owner also owns a good restaurant that's right next door to the hotel.

Very nice place. A little bit outside the mainstreets. But very very close! And it was actually nice since it was calm and view was beautiful from here. And it was safe to walk around at night! The hostel was quiet, clean, hot showers and enough toilets and showers. Space in the dorm and little details like shelfs and free...

Stayed here off of a friends recommendation. Very well kept hostel and organized the right way for travelers. There is really no complaint other than maybe making the communal area bigger so more people can join.

There's a very friendly night watchman (Sergio) who was very kind and helpful. It's a quiet, peaceful place. There is no kichen, though there is a fridge. My only "complaint" (just suggestion really) is that there...

I love this place! It's the only hostel I ever stay at when I go to Copan Ruinas. It's clean and the workers are extremely friendly. Howard (the owner) is very helpful too. And if you are big on good natural food, the breakfast next door is amazing! I have no complaints.

Howard and all the staff at Iguana Azul are exceptionally hospitable, providing unreal service and bottomless local and regional information. The hostel is clean and modern, the showers are hot, and the dorm is comfortable and well ventilated. Highly recommended.

By far one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in. Double rooms were lovely, airy, clean and spacious as was the shared toilets and showers. Wifi was also really good!! The breakfast next door in the cafe which is joined to the hostel was amazing with beautiful views!!! A must visit!!
