Best breaky I have ever had in a hostel! The hostel itself is in good condition and the beds aren't bad. The dorms are all sharing a ceiling so it can get noisy at night, but it is well run by friendly staff! It is up the hill so try avoiding arriving at night, or in the hear of the... More

I went by to check out the facility in late March. My sister was speaking with reception and there was a dog lying on a nearby bench. I gently leaned in to pet him/her and was bit on my hand and bleeding within seconds! I don't think that startled the dog since I approached very slowly, but something in that... More

We work so hard to make our hostel the way that it is. It always breaks my heart to get a review like this. We are very sorry that Canela snapped at you. However, you didn't even stay with us, so to say, "never stay here", is not a fair statement. You were just passing by to see if one... More

This comfy hostel with hammocks, very clean rooms and bathrooms, and a really outstanding breakfast was such good value for money (dam: 15 usd). The staff is also very friendly: they helped me booking my dorm in San Jose and called the hostel with their land line! To be recommended

I just fell in love with this place! Because of the breakfast and lodge, it's easy to meet people. And it's a really short walk to the town and waterfall and other wonderful places. I stayed two nights longer and I was sad to leave after that. Breakfast is so good, the coffee is perfect.

We really liked this hostel. The dorms were cool and quiet with mosquito nets on the doors and windows. The kitchen was good and breakfast were excellent. It's a bit of a way up the hill, but not too far away from town. It is crazily expensive ($32 for 2 dorm beds, not even the luxury dorm), but it is... More

Traveled here a year ago with my boyfriend and it was by far the best hostel we stayed at in Costa Rica! We stayed in the private cabina which was completely worth the value of the price. It was priceless waking up to howler monkeys every morning, not to mention the cabina was beautifully set up and had a glass... More

When booking the luxury dorm I wasn't expecting luxury. But the only difference (for $12 more) is less people. I didn't have a locker, or laundry service, a reading light or any nicer looking accommodations as mentioned on the website. The "ensuite bathroom" mentioned on the website means your outhouse is outside of your room. Outside!!! The bunk beds are... More

Dear guest, I am sorry that your experience was not what you expected. Our luxury dorm is nice than our standard, because it is it's own cabin, is much more spacious, you have your own key to the door has a private balcony and bathroom !! (Did you stay in the standard? how can you compare?) The bathroom is outside,... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The hostel staff were very friendly, especially Juan Luis and the Argentinan/Italian woman at the front desk! The travelers who come through this hostel are amazing people, and it created a community vibe that makes it difficult to leave. I stayed in both the dorms and the luxury dorm. The luxury dorm was well... More

El Luz en el Cielo is a rather small hostel located in the middle of the wood, so if you don't like any kind of animals, it's not the right spot for you. Best thing about the hostel is the excellent breakfast which is included in the price and the incredibly friendly and helpful stuff, which does everything to make... More
