We loved this hotel. A little pricier than we would normally have whilst backpacking but was perfect. They charge extra for air con and hot water but we didn't have either. Hot water is 100% unnessisary here and there are fans in the rooms so you can cope without air con. Rooms were warm in mornings though so if you... More

As the title states this is my favorite hostel- I loved the chill, laid back atmosphere at Aurora. I shared a four person private room with friends, had our own bathroom & balcony with hammocks as well as A/C for $65 a night. Totally worth it. Went to a reggae beach party for 420 that was a lot of fun.... More

We enjoyed this place for 2 nights. It was clean and centrally located so what more can you ask for. The price was better than the hostels in town plus there is a common kitchen. We would recommend staying here if you are looking for a simple but clean hotel.

This place is perfectly located in Montezuma but the rooms are neglected. We only stayed two nights and had to change rooms for the second night because the toilet did not work in the first room! The A/C in the rooms were very old and noisy.

We had to change room twice: first time because of the noise (the hotel is right on the main road) and second time because of the flood in the bathroom. We had horrible large roaches in the bathroom. The room smelled. Towels smelled. Water in the shower smelled. The AC was so old that it was too loud when working.... More

We just came back from our vacation in Montezuma, where we stayed at "Hotel" Aurora. This place looks cute from outside, but it is misleading. The rooms are tiny with only bed in it and thats it! no shelves, no nothing to where you could take your cloths out of suitcase. Which makes it very very uncomfortable. There are huge... More

We stayed here for 1 night when our plans changed and we were looking for a cheap place to stay. The location is great and the lady at the front desk was very nice and willing to negotiate my poor Spanish. We paid a few dollars more for a room on the back of the hotel, not facing the road,...
