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

Thank you so much for your review! We really appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback! We do our very best to provide you with a clean, well equipped hostel. Our breakfast in the morning is what sets us apart from the other hostels in town. Just to clarify, our standard dorm room costs $15 per person per... 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

Stayed here for five nights, first in the regular dorm, then in the rustic cabina. This hostel is only three minutes or so walk to the town. It is very clean with good accommodations, and a great breakfast is included. Very chill place, so you may end up extending your stay as we did.

Only positive things to say about this establishment! It's budget friendly, staff is nice and helpful, place was clean, and the included breakfast was the best I've had at any hostel. Another positive is that it is close to the beach and hiking t!ails and just far enough away from town to be safe. I heard about some negative experiences... More

I spent 4 days at Luz en el Cielo in august 2013 the location is really amazing, surrounded by the forest crowded with monkeys and iguanas. The accommodation i choose was the "cabina" type, it was really comfortable and absolutely clean and new with an amazing view on the ocean. The staff of the hostel is really friendly and prepared...

The hostel is located litteraly in the jungle. In the mornings you can observe the monkeys by lying in the hammock on the terass. The dorms are pretty small, you cannot lock the door and because of the humidity the matress and pillow are damp and smell accordingly. Breakfast is good and plenty but it's every day the same -...
