Nice clean place with good breakfast. Howl monkeys waking you up in the morning instead of alarms. Good kitchen and lovely staff. Meet some really nice friends here! The atmosphere in montezuma is just lovely!

The staff was immediately very welcoming, they met all of our needs (town recommendations, sending us my lost GoPro after left). Really no complaints here, highly recommended when visiting Montezuma. Montezuma is a very small town on the west cost of Costa Rica and they made our stay very personal and it was a very memorable stay.

We stayed in the private Vista Cabina, and my goodness, was it the most pleasant stay in Costa Rica! Downtown Montezuma is a short walk from the bed and breakfast. The staff was friendly and easy to talk to (Yoni has a fantastic music playlist), breakfast was simple and delicious, and the room was comfy and cute with a perfect...

Wow! Great hotel! You live more or less in the woods, it feels a lot like nature and you are "out of" town. Pros: - staff (Ensie? And especially the argentinian mate) Is very nice and always want to help. They seem like your friends - close to nature also means you can sometimes see a lot of monkeys going...

My mom and I came to Montezuma and stayed at Luz en el Cielo for 3 nights. Overall, we were very impressed and happy! We stayed in the private Vista Mar Cabina (with 2 beds) and it had a beautiful view with an AMAZING bathroom & shower. The hike can be a bit cumbersome after a long day in the...

Staying at this hostel as a solo traveller was a breathe of fresh air after staying at a hostel in Santa Teresa where I felt a bit isolated due to there being lots of other group travellers who did not speak my language. The staff here was so friendly and accommodating and were great to hang out and chat with....

The lion apparently recycles and is eco-friendly! This hostel is niched inside the jungle in Montezuma and cares a lot about its carbon footprint. Everything that is served is local and bio. They have many recycling and compost bins available. Everything is open air so there is sand on the floor but nothing disconcerting, its kept reasonably clean! The staff...

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel :) The hostel has a great location a bit outside of the city center (5-min walk) which was great because it was really calm at day as well as at night. The dorms were clean and comfortable. It was nice having a balcony with a view on the jungle and the wildlife....

Stayed at Luz en el Cielo for 4 nights. The hostel has a great location a bit outside of the city center. The dorms are small but clean and the showers are really good. It's a very quit place, the common area is not very cosy and it is not used a lot. If you're looking for a place to...
