I stayed in this hostel 3 nights. The dorm room was simple and clean, and I appreciated the fan for dissipating some of the humidity. It did rain most of the time I was here, so everything was a little damp, but I think thats just a fact of life in Costa Rica! The free breakfast was delicious and filling,... More

Wow. Where do I start? The hostel is located up the hill from the town ( which is awesome because you do not hear any of the few bars there at night) From the moment you walk in you can feel the family style vibe. They have a communal area with 2 hammocks, seating area, coffee that you can make,... More

We stayed in one of the cabinas rustica in April for 5 nights and had a fantastic stay at Montezuma. The cabins - which are separated from the main building - are quiet and the only possible disturbances are the monkeys and their morning visits. The cabins themselves had just been built and the construction was not completely done at... More

while our hostel in La Fortuna may have been nicer (better mattresses, air conditioning etc) I much preferred our stay at Luz. The breakfast is good, the staff and fellow guests were awesome and its hard not to enjoy your stay in montezuma. relax at the beach, in the hammocks, read a book and soak in the sun. pura vida...

This hostel was very nice!!! Compared to the other hostel I stayed in, this was heaven. This hostel fills up fast so book ahead of time. They have both luxury and standard dorms. I stayed in the luxury dorm while my sister stayed in the standard dorm. I don't think there was much of a difference. The luxury dorm is... More

Best breaky I have ever had in a hostel! The hostel itself is in good condition and the beds aren't bad. The dorms are all sharing a ceiling so it can get noisy at night, but it is well run by friendly staff! It is up the hill so try avoiding arriving at night, or in the hear of the... More

I went by to check out the facility in late March. My sister was speaking with reception and there was a dog lying on a nearby bench. I gently leaned in to pet him/her and was bit on my hand and bleeding within seconds! I don't think that startled the dog since I approached very slowly, but something in that... More

We work so hard to make our hostel the way that it is. It always breaks my heart to get a review like this. We are very sorry that Canela snapped at you. However, you didn't even stay with us, so to say, "never stay here", is not a fair statement. You were just passing by to see if one... More

This comfy hostel with hammocks, very clean rooms and bathrooms, and a really outstanding breakfast was such good value for money (dam: 15 usd). The staff is also very friendly: they helped me booking my dorm in San Jose and called the hostel with their land line! To be recommended

I just fell in love with this place! Because of the breakfast and lodge, it's easy to meet people. And it's a really short walk to the town and waterfall and other wonderful places. I stayed two nights longer and I was sad to leave after that. Breakfast is so good, the coffee is perfect.

We currently have three dorm rooms in the main lodge, one dorm cabina with it's own balcony and bathroom, each equipped with new mattress, sheets and furnishings. We also have newly built private cabinas as of January 2012. Enjoy using our wireless internet, communal kitchen and lounge.
