Came here with friends and we stayed in their dorms for a weekend. The staff is great, relaxed and very nice. Breakfast was great and the dorms were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. It is nice to have the jungle right there and is quieter than some other hostels close to downtown, but it is a walk uphill from... More

Located on the edge of Montezuma this hostel is the perfect mix of a good location for access to the main town and the quiet of the forest. Just about 3 minutes outside of Montezuma up the hill you will find a very friendly staff, comfortable dorms or cabins and a reasonably equipped kitchen. I can more than recommend a... More

I stayed here 6 nights with a friend in the Luxury dorm room cabina. (A week was a perfect amount of time for the Nicoya penninsula.) I really liked our bathroom, it was nicely decorated with the backdrop being the beginning of the forest. We enjoyed the private balcony up in the trees amongst the forest sounds (with the occasional... More

I've been in Montezuma for 2 days and decide to stay in Luz en el Cielo. I booked a Private Cabina with a view and in the middle of the jungle. Very nice place to stay and watch many kinds of animal species. "Messi", the person in charge of the Hostel is a very cool and nice person.

Myself (22, female) and my friend (21, female) travelled for three weeks around Costa Rica. We started our trip in montezuma at this hostel and loved it. The rooms are spacious and clean, the facilities are excellent, the location is ideal and the local breakfast is exquisite!! The hostel is nestled up off the road among greenery which is teaming...

After finishing my month-long research project in Cartago, I thought it would be a shame if I didn't skip over to the ocean and play a little bit! I took a bus from the coca cola station in San Jose. The ride was long, about 6 hours, but is perfectly enjoyable if you have a book and like to look... More

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
