My boyfriend and I are traveling for a year. We have stayed in many hostels of all sorts. This place has been the worst for so many reasons. For starters, we were misinformed or not informed about anything regarding everything. When we arrived into our dorm room it smelled of sewage and dirty socks. The smell of sewage was from the stream of garbage flowing along the side. When I got into my bed there was dirt in it. Hard to believe my sheets were changed. The bedding was gross and the pillows smelled like mold. The hot showers were a joke. You get cold and really cold. It is June and at 5,000 ft above sea level it is not exactly the kind of weather where one enjoys a cold shower. The entire 4 days we spent there we did not see a single person cleaning ... anything. There was construction going on the entire time we were there. That along with the constant tuk tuks going up and down the road next to it made sleeping impossible. They do not allow you to bring food or drink from outside. Therefore you are forced to eat their communal dinner whether you like it or not since they do not cook anything else after 3 PM. There is nothing to do in Santa Cruz either. We did enjoy the walk to San Marcos. This is a place you come for happy hour. The view is great and thats all it has to offer.
Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, beautiful common areas. Staff were nice and the owner was out playing guitar one night by the fire which was a really fun. The food is really good and meals are an easy way to meet people. No wifi but I didn't miss it. I would recommend this place to everyone.
Great atmosphere, beautiful views, friendly staff.
I went to the Iguana for a day or two and ended up staying for weeks. The views of the lake are stunning and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Great place to meet other people too if you are traveling on your own as I was. Highly recommend it!
