Great location overlooking the town, about a 1 minute walk into town and beach. Rooms were super clean. Johnny(owner) was very helpful for arranging activities. Hostels on the beach appeared less safe so this was a great option. Great common areas to relax, upload photos and read in the hammocks. We'll done Johnny, Erica, Isabella(staff).

To be completely honest, we're new to backpacking. we've always admired the lifestyle, but hadn't taken a role in the community until now. Yes, when you think backpacking, in addition to blisters, mud and achey muscles, partying plays a role. We're young. That's what we do. We go out and have fun. Backpackers are no exception. Except, the introductions and... More

My friend and I stayed three nights and after we left we couldn't stop comparing everything else we experienced to our time at this hostel, and in Montezuma in general. We joked we were just going to cancel the rest of our plans to go back "home". That's what it felt like to us, home and family. When you stay,... More

We had a great stay at this hostel, the staff was friendly and welcoming and had awesome suggestions of what to do and see in the area! We had a great time. There were monkeys hanging out and iguanas everywhere! We would absolutely suggest this hostel to anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay. I'll put out there that... More

A group of 20 of us just stayed at Luz en el Cielo and the weekend was perfect! The staff is super helpful, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and the breakfasts were hearty portions & tasty. We also had a family dinner made for our first night because we arrived late from San José - amazing fish kebabs...thanks Max!... More

I stayed in this hostel 3 nights. The dorm room was simple and clean, and I appreciated the fan for dissipating some of the humidity. It did rain most of the time I was here, so everything was a little damp, but I think thats just a fact of life in Costa Rica! The free breakfast was delicious and filling,... More

Wow. Where do I start? The hostel is located up the hill from the town ( which is awesome because you do not hear any of the few bars there at night) From the moment you walk in you can feel the family style vibe. They have a communal area with 2 hammocks, seating area, coffee that you can make,... More

We stayed in one of the cabinas rustica in April for 5 nights and had a fantastic stay at Montezuma. The cabins - which are separated from the main building - are quiet and the only possible disturbances are the monkeys and their morning visits. The cabins themselves had just been built and the construction was not completely done at... More

while our hostel in La Fortuna may have been nicer (better mattresses, air conditioning etc) I much preferred our stay at Luz. The breakfast is good, the staff and fellow guests were awesome and its hard not to enjoy your stay in montezuma. relax at the beach, in the hammocks, read a book and soak in the sun. pura vida...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wake up to the sounds of the jungle. Luz en el Cielo B&B/Hostel is located just out of Montezuma's town center. Montezuma is a small beach town with a huge heart and a lot of charm. This newly renovated, classy hostel is great for budget travels, families and couples. We currently have three dorm rooms in the main lodge, one dorm cabina with it's own balcony and bathroom, each equipped with new mattress, sheets and furnishings. We also have newly built private cabinas as of January 2012. Enjoy using our wireless internet, communal kitchen and lounge. Breakfast is included with every stay, as well as coffee all day. ... more   less
