Luz en el Cielo was our favorite hostel we stayed at during our trip. The coffee/breakfast was delicious, and the staff as well as the other travelers we met were extremely friendly. There is plenty of opportunity to spot wildlife just sitting in the common outdoor areas as the hostel is literally up in the jungle. If you are even... More

My friend and I stayed at Luz for only 2 nights, in the dorm style rooms that are offered. We loved it there! We arrived very late at night on the bus from Paquera, and when we asked the driver, he stopped right in front of the hostel! Despite arriving later at night, we were greeted by very friendly staff... More

I stayed in one of the private cabinas at Luz en el Cielo. It was really amazing, but it was incredibly hot and there were a lot of bugs. That didn't really bother me, but it would bother some. The shower and the view were amazing! No hot water.

I stayed at Luz for a week and it was absolutely incredible. First of all, the staff is so insanely friendly and welcoming. You can feel free to kick it at the giant family style dining room table and get to know people from all over the world. The breakfast is incredible. Some hostels will set out a loaf of... More

We booked this hostel at the last minute as we needed somewhere to stay when we travelled to Montezuma. If you didn't pack very light- forget it- it's about a 2km trek up a very steep hill (too close for cabs yet too far to walk). At the end of a long travel day this is the last thing I... More

Finding this place was like hitting a jackpot. As a nature lover I was impressed by the location of the hostel. It's in the middle of the forrest but still very close to the town of Montezuma (maybe 100m). Abbie the owner and her boyfriend Yonni were really friendly and helpful so was the rest of the staff. I slept... More

Great value for money especially with breakfast included, all the staff were very welcoming and enjoyed speaking with backpackers. Nice hostel with a good location. Small rooms and cold shower and a lot of bugs, and even saw a rat in my room one night which was horrible!

I stayed here in January with my boyfriend for 5 nights and it was the highlight of our trip! We woke up the first morning to howler monkeys banging on the roofs and climbing in the trees just outside of the balcony... While the dorms were small, we experienced just about all Costa Rica has to offer staying here... Friendly... More

I stayed here earlier this month with three friends and had a really positive experience. The staff are all super helpful and Abby (the owner) went out of her way to make our stay extra enjoyable and even gave us a ride to where we needed to go at the end of our stay because she happened to be going...

We stayed here for three nights. We were in a dorm with six beds. The room was full the first night and then it was just the two of us for the remainder. It was spacious enough. They provided cubby holes, fans and lamps for each bed. The room had a balcony that you could sit on and listen to... More

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
