Downtown Montezuma Hostel will always remain a special place in my heart, Elena, the owner is super and made everyone feel like family, the rooms are basic with exactly what you need at such an affordable price, the perfect environment for making special memories and meeting incredible people. Pancakes in the morning, Molly the cat, Randal the surfer and Elena... More

Elena was a great host... Her hostel has an extremely warm & clean atmosphere and she is very helpful. We planned on staying 2 or 3 nights and ended up staying a week at Downtown Montezuma Hostel. We had heard about it from another traveller while somewhere else in Costa Rica. They raved about the hostel so we took their... More

Lovely hostel with a Nice owner. At first, we Were supposed to stay only for 1 night but we met so cool people and we decided to stay longer. For breakfast you can make your own pancakes with a delicious syrup on top. It is located next to the market and it´s cheap

My boyfriend and I just left the Downtown hostel and we had an excellent stay! Big private rooms, comfy beds and a well stocked kitchen. The hostel is very clean and has a nice chill vibe. The common area is shady and has 2 hammocks for lounging. Elena is an excellent hostess and was very friendly and accommodating during our... More

Elena is a great hostess and runs a clean and comfortable hostel. She accommodated our group of three in a double room at a really fair price. Awesome suggestions for surfing, yoga, and other local activities. Good social atmosphere without being a party hostel. Added bonus: free pancakes and coffee in the mornings.

My stay at this hostel was terrrific! Elena, the owner of the hostel, was extremely hospitable and accomodating for all of her guests. She created a warm and welcoming environment, with groovy tunes playing in the background, hammocks available in the lounge area, and if you are lucky, she shared fresh fruit drinks, tahini, and fish! Elana was always enthusaistic... More

Downtown Montezuma Hostel is... well right in the middle of Montezuma. The hostel was clean and a great location to explore the area. The owner was great. She is super friendly and helpful during my stay. She even organized a group dinner for all of the guests

This was a wonderful find. The hostel is fairly new and the rooms don't have a lot of personality yet, but the location and atmosphere more than make up for that. Elena, the owner, is always around if there are any issues (she even leaves her phone number when she goes home at night!) and seems to really enjoy meeting... More
