Myself (22, female) and my friend (21, female) travelled for three weeks around Costa Rica. We started our trip in montezuma at this hostel and loved it. The rooms are spacious and clean, the facilities are excellent, the location is ideal and the local breakfast is exquisite!! The hostel is nestled up off the road among greenery which is teaming with wildlife. You can sit in a hammock and enjoy the surroundings while listening to the nearby sea, very relaxing.
We decided to return here for an extra three days at the end of our trip because we loved it so much.
What really made this place amazing for us though was the incredibly helpful staff. Unfortunately on our second last day we were robbed while out and about. It was extremely stressful as we lost our passports and money. The staff at the hostel (in particular Abbie the owner) were unbelievably helpful and supportive and even drove us to the police station and stayed with us to help us translate our statements. They also helped us get emergency money. We can never repay them for the support they gave us. I would recommend this place to any one would would listen!!
