Great Location, so close to everything that you need. Quiet time is at 11pm so you can always get a good night sleep but if you want to party you can always go out to the bar or have a bonfire on the beach with the locals or other people from the hostel. They have free breakfast included with make... More

Everything in Montezuma is "good location". As I haven't stayed at any other hostel in Montezuma, I'm not sure if it's typical, but they didn't give towels, which makes traveling more challenging. Linens were provided. Cash only. My friend had a hard time with correspondence prior to booking. It's a very " relaxed " attitude, but I was happy that... More

Thank you Sarah for your review. Glad you enjoyed our quiet atmosphere. Towels are available upon request and bookings are made through facebook. Often it depends if people are leaving so we don't know until the same day. Enjoy your trip :) Elena More

The atmosphere, the rooms, the facilities, the town- everything was welcoming, friendly and accomodating. The people were wonderful and so very helpful. They became good friends by the end of our 5 night stay. Kitchen had more than you could ask for in a hostel kitchen, and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The town was wonderful and so...

This hostel is very clean. The location is unbeatable if you want to be close to the shop and the party scene (one bar, but a lot of street party). The owner Elena is full of joy, she will make your stay a super pleasant one. If you are around and want to be close to the action, this hostel... More

The hostel had a nice feel. Everyone who worked and stayed there was helpful and kind. The common area was great (live the hammocks!). Since we were there 5 days and there was no housekeeping during our stay it would have been great to have easy access to a broom, garbage bags, etc so that we could tidy up ourselves.

Nice common area with hammock, the price is very fair and the atmosphere is good. you don't need more. the breakfast are basically pancake mixture that you have to make yourself... some fruits instead would have been better in my opinion.

Compact hostel with a kitchen, two minute walk from the beach and very close to bus-stop. Relaxed atmosphere with chill music in the background. Met nice travellers here. The staff gave me good advice on best beaches in the nearby area and helped me book a tour to Tortuga Islands. The pancakes in the morning were a nice perk. Tip:... More
