Howler monkeys at your doorstop and Capuchin monkeys stealing your bananas. A truly jungle-like experience just a few short steps from the ocean. You can hear the ocean rolling in every night from your room. They offer a mix of shared and private rooms, some with private bathrooms too. The only complaint is the road traffic can be a bit...

This is definitely a hostel. But as far as hostel's go this one is pretty awesome. Its high up on the hill overlooking the beach in Montezuma, so there is such an amazing view. Plus you can go to sleep to the sound of crashing waves, I think that was my favorite part. My least favorite part was the hike... More

My friend and I stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it. It's part hostel - part hotel, making it a fun, friendly place to hangout without being distracted from loud party music. Chill vibes overall and the free coffee in the morning is the best I've had yet. Highly recommended if you don't mind a steep, four minuet... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, a really cool hostel! Beautifully situated with the town and ocean below and monkeys above. Quiet and nice and good, free coffee. The staff is really friendly, kind and helpful. Reccomend you to stay here when in Montezuma.

We stayed here for two nights whilst briefly stopping in Montezuma on ours travels. We were visiting in low season so didn't have to book and got a private room with shares bathroom. The place was quiet and idyllic; with very friendly staff and a cool Costa Rican ambience. The hotel is situated on the side of a hill, so... More

My husband and I stayed here in a double room (with shared bathroom) for 2 nights and unfortunately we were glad it wasn't longer! It was a real shame that we had a bad experience as I had read such positive reviews on trip advisor. But here goes: - The Room: we paid extra for a sea-view room but really... More

Though you have to climb another "Cliff" to reach it, Luna llena was a perfect chill place to stay in Montezuma, very comfortable with the best view ever on the sea and - sometimes - animal company. Staff helpful, nice facilities and astonishing location - litterraly on the Cliff.

Romantic rooms with a beautiful view on the ocean. Warm welcome and very nice talk with the keeper, Angel. We would recommend this charming place among wild animals. We were here for Easter. You needed to book at this period. We hope that we will come again.

This hostel was simple but was perfect for us (2 adults and 1 baby). Tha hot water was not hot all the time, but the kitchen and living room was perfect to cook and chiil. Je recommande cet auberge a tous les voyageurs qui recherche la simplicité.

The good: location was nice because of the view, and you're basically in the forest so that gives it a nice feel. The bad: Great seeing monkeys and the wildlife, but the rooms don't have adequate netting so you end up being destroyed by mosquitos and wake up to bugs crawling all over you. The parking spaces are not suitable... More
