Downtown Montezuma Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Elena was a great host... Her hostel has an extremely warm & clean atmosphere and she is very helpful. We planned on staying 2 or 3 nights and ended up staying a week at Downtown Montezuma Hostel. We had heard about it from another traveller while somewhere else in Costa Rica. They raved about the hostel so we took their word for it and called Elena up, best decision we made! If you are going to stay in Montezuma, this is the place! GREAT location and GREAT set-up! Thanks a bunch... Kerry & Mark from Perth, Ontario, Canada :)

Lovely hostel with a Nice owner. At first, we Were supposed to stay only for 1 night but we met so cool people and we decided to stay longer. For breakfast you can make your own pancakes with a delicious syrup on top. It is located next to the market and it´s cheap

My boyfriend and I just left the Downtown hostel and we had an excellent stay! Big private rooms, comfy beds and a well stocked kitchen. The hostel is very clean and has a nice chill vibe. The common area is shady and has 2 hammocks for lounging. Elena is an excellent hostess and was very friendly and accommodating during our stay. We were even treated to a special sangria one day! The pancakes and coffee every morning are a really nice touch. The coffee has been the best I've had so far and the syrup for the pancakes is worth staying here alone! And for those looking for their pet fix, she has a nice cat and dog!

Elena is a great hostess and runs a clean and comfortable hostel. She accommodated our group of three in a double room at a really fair price. Awesome suggestions for surfing, yoga, and other local activities. Good social atmosphere without being a party hostel. Added bonus: free pancakes and coffee in the mornings.

this is the friendliest place to stay in montezuma.a great place to relax, hang out, and meet friends. everything is super clean and the rooms are cozy and comfortable. as a solo female traveler i felt very safe here with the night security guard. i also have to echo everyone else's sentiments about Elena - she is the best hostess ever and she's always there to help or just to chat. i will definitely stay here next time i'm in montezuma.

My stay at this hostel was terrrific! Elena, the owner of the hostel, was extremely hospitable and accomodating for all of her guests. She created a warm and welcoming environment, with groovy tunes playing in the background, hammocks available in the lounge area, and if you are lucky, she shared fresh fruit drinks, tahini, and fish! Elana was always enthusaistic to accomodate and assit her guests to ensure we enjoy their travels regardless of her long hours of work. Communal potluck dinners were frequent, as everyone shared their favourite flavours. Facilities and rooms were clean, and the dorms were spatious! Great value for your money and highly recommended!
