Reviewed February 22, 2011

We spent 10 days in this hostel, they got good prices acording to the rooms and a breakfast as big as I nowhere else get before.
Stuff is very friendly, they gave us a lot of informacions about trips and all the movement. The hostel is in the best ubicacion, in the whole center but not as much noise like in the other Hostels around, after restaurant close guests are aloud to use the installations with music etc. and consume the own drinks. We drunk a lot of ,,,,he he he
A Hostel not as comercial as the other ones.
- We made a lots of friends and come back for shure-

When we got off the bus in Montañita, we were going to look for a hostel called Centro del Mundo. A man came up to us advertising Hostel Montezuma. He said that Montezuma would cost 8 dollars a person per night. We thought this was way too much money and kept walking towards the other hostel. He eventually offered it to us for 6 dollars including breakfast. We took him up on his offer and were led into a small, dark room for all 6 of us. It has one matrimonial bed and 2 bunk beds in a space that would have been better off with just 2 bunk beds. Everything was sandy, no surprise at the beach, but also very dirty. The matrimonial bed had no mattress, just sheets on the springs. My bunk bed was just fine. We did have a private bathroom with hot water which was unexpected at the beach. The breakfast was bread and fruit but not bad.

So basically the room was really bad but the service was very friendly. Yan, the guy who met us on the street, went out to dinner with us, partied with us, and hung out with us the whole 2 days. However, I wouldn't ever stay here again because it wasn't that cheap but it was not a nice hostel AT ALL.

Word of warning: my friend Marlene got stung by a sting ray in the shallow area. There is no way to prevent this but if it does happen, go to the free hospital 1 town away instead of the pharmacy in town.
