    Amazing hostel! Location was great, close to downtown & the beach, but not right in the middle of all the partying. Staff was amazing! Super helpful & always telling fun stories over a coffee. They always knew the best things to do around town and which trails to explore around Montezuma. The breakfast was traditional and delicious: eggs, rice & beans, with toast and a side of fruit. The hostel in general was very clean and chill, great place to relax and monkey-watch.

    I enjoyed my stay very much! I felt completely safe, Harold & Johnny were always around & available. The location was close to town, restaurants, the beaches & the waterfall... just perfect! The place was really clean. The breakfast was lovely, healthy & delicious with coffee available before breakfast started. It was wonderful to see monkeys & parrots around the property. I ate at a different restaurant every evening all of them were good but Cocolores was by far my favorite!

    Very nice and clean hostel and super friendly staff!! It’s tucked away in a jungle garden and I met a lot of awesome people there, everyone there was in my age (34) or younger. Erika, one of the employees is also a great Yoga teacher. Tip: The deluxe mixed dorm is quite spacious and has got hot shower and its own little balcony.

    This is a very no frills, eco friendly hostel. Very relaxed atmosphere, with the ability to see wildlife. Isn't beach front but is a three minute walk to the beach. It's a very safe town. The people are all incredibly kind and the breakfast is good 👌

    The real jungle deal I've stayed at several hostels in Costa Rica. I love this one for its authentic jungle setting and it's super staff. The beds were clean and comfortable. I would stay here again

    The included breakfast was great. First, I only wanted to stay for one night but in the end, I stayed for three nights. Montezuma is a lovely small town and the hostel is located some meters above the town in pure nature. Therefore, monkeys and other animals can be observed close to the hostel. One can't close/lock the doors of the rooms but there are lockers and mosquito nets. Overall a nice place to stay in Montezuma.
