I recently stayed at this hostel for six days with three other friends, whom of which are all 18. The service at this hostel was excellent, the free breakfast every morning was great, and Florencia and all others working at this hostel made us feel very welcome and secure. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone, and I would... More

We loved staying here. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming and breakfast was delicious. We stayed one night in the cabina rustica, which was lovely, but the rest of our nights were in the vista cabina, which was incredible! The views were so beautiful and the facility was brand new. We really enjoyed living right amongst the beautiful nature... More

We stayed at Luz en el Cielo for five nights over a 10-day period. We came back. Montezuma is a hard place to leave, and Luz en el Cielo is a lovely hostel with a great laid-back vibe, and warm and helpful staff. No complaints at all. The hostel is about a two-minute walk up the hill from the village.... More

I stayed here for about four nights. It is a beautiful place. Very nicely perched on a slope in the forest just a coupl minutes walk out of town. It seemed to attract a great crowd of travllers while I was there. Interestng thoughtful travellers who, along with the staff, contributed to making a real community atmosphere. The hostel itself...

My husband and I stayed in the tree top cabina for four nights. It was really fun to get an up close view of the monkeys! The staff was superb and the breakfast was awesome! Even though they're doing some construction it was never an issue and it was still quiet!

Mh husband and stayed 3 nights here and loved it. It's a little bit pricey, but if your willing to splurge, it's worth it. The first 2 nights we stayed in a private cabana which was very expensive but worth every penny, it was so luxurious and we had so much privacy and an unbeatable view of the ocean. The... More

Oh man... This place was so wonderful! The people that work here are friendly and nice! I was here 3 nights out of a 2 week solo trip! It has a comfortable feel and the breakfast was the best out of the 5 other hostels I stayed in!!!! I was sad to leave! You won't regret staying here!

At Luz en el Cielo, we felt like living in trees for a while, and we LOVED it. Sleeping in soft and clean blankets, waking up to the sound of howler monkeys, being served a queen's breakfast, having showers in a tidy outside bathroom, getting down to the village following a little path in the forest… That was close to...
