Well, I’ve mixed feelings about the ‘Luna Llena Hostel’, on the one hand the staff were very amiable and laidback and it is definitely worth the price as Montezuma isn’t one of the cheapest places to stay in Costa Rica. It's nice that it's out of the town a little, away from the noise of the bars etc. The communal... More

This was one of my favourite places that we stayed in Costa Rica. The climb to get there was worth it. We stayed in one of the Cabinas with a great view. The common area/lounge was really nice especially at the end of the day, where we met alot of really nice people from all over the world who shared... More

This place was freakin adorable! My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights and were sad to leave. We requested room 6, which is a cute little cabina that has an AWESOME view and a little private balcony. We slept with the windows open with the mosquito net, falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean (and the howlers too). This... More

I have mixed feelings about this little gem of a place. On the one hand the staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The setting is beautiful and it is well situated at the entrance to Montezuma proper. The rooms are affordable. If you are mature and travelling with your partner, avoid the top-floor rooms, which are large enough to... More

Upon reading this review, we contacted our 'bugman' to examine the room. He found no evedence of bed bugs. I have not heard of this problem here before, so I investigated bedbugs, and also did my own search. I again found non of the telltale signs. Also the mattresses are less than 2 years old. We have found a non... More

We stayed in there and loved it! There is no noise, just the waves at night and the occasional monkeys in the morning. Yet it is located within a short walking distance from the restaurants and beaches.There is a steep hill and a lot of stairs to get to Luna llena, but it is worth the climb. Communal kitchen works...

Definitely one of the nicest places to stay in Montezuma: amazing ocean view from everywhere, overlooking the cute village just 5 min away from downtown and the beach but quiet, clean, friendly and very fair priced - not much to complain if you don't mind the stairs, the reward awaits you up there! Great for backpackers and to hook up... More

A lovely open-air style hostel run by a Swiss lady and her family. Accomodation consisted of simple bungalows set amongst the trees with (hot) shower rooms and toilets a few steps away. There's a shared kitchen and communal lounge with a sea view.
