As we got out of the shuttle we were a bit worried that we were way out of town... but no, it's just that Copan is super cute and a lot smaller than many towns I'd recently visited! You're literally just a five minute, 2 or 3 block walk from the Parque Central. Loved the dorm room we stayed in,...

Thank you to Howard for the great service! He was very nice to us . The breakfast was also incredible and the coffee was rich. In addition, we went to the beautiful ruins. They exceeded our expectations.

Iguana Azul was a very clean hostel and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Location is great as it's just outside town! The showers and bathrooms are also very clean. The hot water is a bonus! Not much space to hang out except for a small common room with good wifi. Not a party hostel.

It's a cute little hostel and although it's not directly in the center everything can be reached by foot easily. The first impression was very good. We are 6 travellers and stayed in one of the dorms. The room was spacious, everything was clean and comfortable, same with the bathrooms - located outside, but also clean and definitely one of...

I have stayed in a lot of hostels over the years but this one is the best. From the get-go, emails were fast, informative and helpful. A double room was $18 and they are big compared to other hostel doubles. Everything was super clean and comfortable including the living area where there was also free water. The amount of information...

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. I did not have a reservation upon arrival, but the owners, Howard and Angela, were quick to accommodate me. Luckily, there was a private room available as I was traveling solo. There was a large group there at the time occupying the shared rooms. My room was spacious and cleaned daily as...

This hostel is very clean and beds are comfortable. It's a colonial house very well renewed to work as a hostel. Showers are great and it has a small little garden. The staff is super nice and helpful. The only downside is that they don't have a bar/restaurant at the hostel. However, the same owner has a B&B next door...

Rooms were clean and comfortable, showers and bathrooms spacious. There was a place to wash laundry too. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a large group of student travellers, and they accommodated us with a discount and we filled all the dorm rooms. However, the price quote didn't include 19% taxes so beware.
