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

I stayed here for 2 more days than I planned as it was such a pleasure. Great value for money especially including breakfast! Everything works well and Montezuma is really nice itself. The only negative is that the owner Abbie (I think) emailed asking for the first nights payment but sent me a PayPal invoice for all of the nights... More

Montezuma was another pit-stop on our non-stop Costa Rican honeymoon adventure. First things first, the staff were lovely at Luz en el Cielo, the room was nice, the nature was wonderful as was the food. However, to review "Luz" objectively, I have to consider the larger environment of Montezuma and its surroundings. In many ways, Montezuma had parallels with any... More

I recently had the opportunity to stay at this hostel for a few days. We are a bit older than the typical hostel goer (all in our 30s) so we opted for the more expensive tree top cabanas. The other visitors were all college students who were friendly and respectful, but we didn't spend much time at the hostel since... More

This place was great, I don't know if it was the amazing breakfast served in the am or the monkeys playing outside my room, but I loved it. The staff and owners are awesome and everyone staying there was very social. Breakfast was a great way to meet people if you are traveling alone, everyone goes and sits at one... More
