Aurora is clean and made of concrete, so it is cool. There is a communal kitchen that has all you need. Wifi is pretty good, especially in common areas. There are a range of rooms and you can add A/C and hot water. For low season, we paid $45 for a room with A/C and hot water and were more...

This is a neat property, with a fun and somewhat quirky assemblage of rooms over three floors. We also had some issues with staff "attitude" from one of the two young women who worked in the reception. We had to eventually involve the owner who made us quite happy in the end. So I would recommend the property. Don't let...

I stayed one night here in Hotel Aurora after having the previous night next door at Hotel Tajalin. The receptionists didn't speak any English, so we had a minor language barrier. I know basic Spanish, but they didn't understand me so I was unable to book any buses or tours through them. They were also extremely rude when a friend...

I wish we would've had more time to visit the Hotel Aurora & restaurant. But we had a lovely breakfast outside on their patio! The foliage was beautiful and the "typico" was delicious! Definitely hope to come back another time.

We planned to stay 1 night but ended up staying 4 because it was so nice in Montezuma. The hotel offers everything you need. You have your own coffee in your room, the kitchen was clean and the beach is very close. The people working at the reception were more than friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome...

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...

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....

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.
