We stayed at Hotel Aurora for 2 weeks which was longer than we had originally planned. It was great place to relax after we had been doing a lot of travelling. The room was large and have us enough room to be unable to unpack our bags and hang clothes up. The beds were comfy and were changed every 3... More

Over the course of the summer, I actually ended up staying at Hotel Aurora on three separate occasions for a total of almost three weeks time. As a solo traveler on a bit of a budget who likes to book private rooms, I can't say I found anywhere in Nicaragua or Costa Rica I enjoyed staying more. The location was... More

I spent a week here. Close to everything and just far enough to be quiet and private. Common areas were spacious and very comfortable. Laidback, funky and clean. I had a great time. Best deal are the larger rooms upstairs.

Very close to the beach and night life, and the front desk is very helpful. Also one minute away from the bus-stop, which is very convenient. Has a little bit of a backpacker vibe, but the kitchen is well maintained and the hammocks are a nice touch too. Much nicer than a hostel, but for the same price. Definitely recommend... More

When I reached Montezuma, I needed a little break from the group dorms so myself and two new friends decided to splurge on a private 3-bed room with AC and private bath. It was heaven for $16 /night/pp. Seemed like a quieter place, but we made some new friends there and livened things up. Very conveniently located, right in town... More

Everything was so great. We had an amazing room with double beds, a small fridge, a big wardrobe & beautiful bathroom. There is a small public kitchen downstair. The staff was really helpful and Ivonne was so lovely. The place is clean & beautiful. When there were some concert in town, we can hear a littlebit of noise but that's... More

We spent 10 days in Costa Rica and I think this is the only place I'm even going to review. The room was great- large with 3 beds, AC, fridge and 2 ceiling fans and was by far the least amount of money we spent anywhere. It was comfortable and a steal. It even had its own balcony with two,... More

We stayed there two nights. The room was comfortable, and clean. Everything was simple but correct. No wifi inside the room. The last day, however, a horrible smell invaded the court, but it didn't last long.

Stayed in a private room for 3 nights. Great location, far enough away from the main drag so that it is not too noisy but only a 2 minute walk away from bars and beach. Unfortunately we had a room by the side of the road so was noisy in the mornings until early evening with the sound of ATVs... More

After spending a sleepless night at Hotel Moctezuma on the main drag, my mother and I searched elsewhere for a place that matched our budget, was in a good location, and was clean and quiet. We found all of that (and luckily the last vacancy!) at Aurora. The Dutch man running this joint was great - super helpful, accommodating, and... More
