The place is excellent, great customer service, Johnny and Mitch Are just great welcoming people. Also it is very clean which is a must for me.Loved the clean bathroom. Breakfast included and is delicious, fruit, coffee and eggs. Just great place to relax and by the way you can hear the ocean while sleeping. Just a great place in Montezuma.... More

I stayed a few nights in the 'jungle view' private cabin. The cabin was fantastic for the price. Good quality design, plenty of space, view of trees/monkeys and ocean in the distance. There are two queen-sized four poster beds in the cabin separated by a wall. Lovely glass-wall shower area. Separate bathroom with toilet and sink/counter. Front room has table... More

Luz en el Cielo is perfect! So close to the beach and the waterfalls. The staff are super friendly and knowledgable of the area. The breakfast is well worth it. Nice clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Good wi-fi. It's not uncommon to see monkeys in the trees surrounding the dorms. Spent a week here during down season and had a great... More

Stayed in luxury dorm for two nights ($25 per night per person). Not sure why it's luxury compared to dorms at $15 as the toilet and shower facilities are outside. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Great vibe and staff were really really friendly. Had a great time here and met some cool people. Breakfast included and was of good... More

This is a lovely place to stay for a short while with a lot of animals & nature just away from the cabina .The room was comfy . the service better than in many hostels & the breakfast was a cut above what you normally find .All in all a great find .

I stayed here in June last year, but had to come back and review this place. This is a nice hostel, great for solo travelers, love the sociable and tasty 'family dinners'. The shower was cool as it felt like you are showering outside! Dorms are pretty small but the rest of the hostel is lovely. The staff are really... More

April 2015 was our second time at Luz en el Cielo and we highly recommend this eco B & B Hostel. The staff were all friendly and very accommodating. The owners, Abbie and Yoni are amazing people! They certainly made us feel like we were at home and part of the family. Our cabina in the trees was a great... More

This hostel was a great experience. We stayed for 3 nights and met people there that had been hanging out there for a week or a month or more and couldn't bring themselves to leave. It is clean, friendly staff, comfortable beds. Although it is a little more expensive than some other hostels in Montezuma, it is totally worth it.... More

This hostel was great. We stayed in the luxury dorms and were quite comfortable there. Every morning we had a hearty breakfast that filled us and provided the energy needed to enjoy Montezuma's seemingly endless festivities! The hostel is just a bit up the hill which is actually nice because Montezuma itself is quite small and the hostel provides an... More

this hostel is set just steps above the town of Montezuma covered by all kinds of trees. You feel like you're staying in the jungle and there are monkeys everywhere. It's super clean, the staff are so friendly, and the common areas are set up great for making travel buds. Also, the breakfast is incredible! You have to walk up... More
