My boyfriend and I stayed here for the free shuttle to the airport. Everyone was really quiet and respectful since most people had flights really early in the morning. Not really a place to meet people since most are either going home or just passing through after just arriving. Comfortable beds, air-conditioner in the rooms. The girl who was working the front desk was super nice, the guy in the morning not so much

I stayed here for 2 months while I had an internship in Costa Rica. I met amazing people while I stayed here, and it had a great balance of home and party place, depending on what you made of your time there. The long-term people are all so friendly and welcoming. I was lucky to find a place with consistent HOT water, easy access to downtown and the university area, nearby grocery stores, a key needed to enter and exit for extra security, and wonderful people!

Pretty dead the night we were there. Not many people and most of them went to bed early. Great location, easy access to the bus and the town-5 min walk. Saw a couple of monkeys right outside of the hostel which was fun. Overall, my stay was okay-nothing special really, and Montezuma is bullshit expensive so I wasn't too inclined to stay in Montezuma for very long

Dead hostel, few people there. They list pool table as part of their facilities but you have to pay extra to use it. You have to pay extra to use the a/c too even though it's already built into the room. Very strict policy about being out of the common area past 10 so even if there were people, we couldnt even hang out for that long. They turn off the wifi after 10 too to make sure everyone is out of the common areas since you cant access the wifi from most of the rooms.

Hello. As a staff member of Hotel Aurora I would like to respond to some of your complaints We have a quiet time rule after 10pm to respect the wishes of the guests who would like to sleep. There are many places for a group to go even after 10pm. The Bars, the beaches, the park, and it is even generally acceptable to hang out in the streets if you wanted to. The Wifi will get turned off if there are many people hanging out after 10pm using it because it only works in the common areas. Thanks

Wonderful place! The staff was so helpful when we had questions about tours and were able to book them for you if you wanted-aware of issues going on with people scamming tourists in town so they took the initiative to book tours through them! Amazing views, quiet and relaxing, perfect atmosphere to chill. Not a party place, at least not when we were there. Kind of a pain of a walk if you have heavy luggage because you have to go down steps and up a rocky dirt road to get there, but worth it!

People who complained that this isnt a party place should be aware of where they're booking. This only had like 4 private rooms and was above a family's home. The bed was so comfortable, the room smelled so fresh and was cutely decorated, spotless bathroom in our room (they were nice and upgraded us to an ensuite room since there werent other people there), hot water. Relaxing and comfortable

Awesome place, 2 houses-one with private rooms but still access to the bigger house where more people were and where you could get internet access. Fun place, info about which bars have the ladies' nights and other specials, owner was really chill and helpful with where to go
