Dirtiest hostel I've ever stayed in for Costa Rica. The staff isn't very friendly, the bathrooms are disgusting and the bunk rooms are even worse. They had cockroaches falling on our faces in our sleep. I felt so uncomfortable that I didn't sleep and just waited until I could get my deposit back before I hit the road. The inexpensive... More

My then-boyfriend and I stayed at Pensione Lucy in December 2007. It came highly recommended from a friend who travelled through Montezuma a few months before. Our stay at Hotel Lucy was for the most part pleasant. We had one of the interior, street-facing rooms, so I remember it was hot, small and dusty. If I was to return we... More

Montezuma was a stop over for us, we wanted somewhere to get a decent nights sleep for a decent price and that is exactly what we got. The rooms are basic, and quite small, but they have everything you need (bathroom, fan, clean sheets & towels) and between the beach, eating out in the evening and sitting on the cute... More

Don't take the room from street side if possible - cars make horrible sound. Don't leave valuables in your room - they might get stolen like everywhere in Costa Rica. Good people staying, nice kitchen to do your own food. Stuff is nice, except the night shift guy who is total d***. Cheapest place in Montezuma, great view. Come here... More

I loved staying at Hotel Lucy. It's a 2 minute walk down the road from Montezuma, so a lot quieter than the other options in town. It's right next to the beach and you always hear the soothing sounds of the waves. The hotel owners are exceptionally friendly and will help you with anything (they only speak Spanish).The rooms and... More

Stay just outside the town of montezuma in this gorgeous, clean, well equipped hotel situated right on the ocean. The sound of the waves will wake you in the morning and rock you to sleep at night, and the women running the place are very friendly and organized. The hotel offers dorm style arrangements and private rooms, I believe all... More

First of all, the view from this hostel is absolutely amazing. However, the hostel itself is not without faults; the kitchen had one really bad knife, was full of ants and plastered with rules and warnings. The room was alright until a mouse ran over my bed and had eaten bits of the Oreos and cashewnuts we had in our... More

The staff is incredibly unpleasant and the rooms haven't been cleaned for ages, dust flew from the fan when we first put it on. And on the second night it was raining and the roof leaked and soaked one of our beds, and we were met by a rude attitude from the guy working there. The only good thing I... More
