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...

Had a great time here. Everyone was very nice. Ask for Mitch. He was quick to offer what ever help he could give. Flor will give you great trip recommendations so speak to her before booking any tours. Over all a great nature place. If you get lucky then you can see the monkeys right outside of your window.

It was clean and comfortable with a friendly community and just far enough out of town for it to be quiet. What set it apart for me is that even though I was confused and needed to change my plans over and over the staff, particularly Mitch, was patient and kind. Thanks for the stay.

We were told to come here because of their exceptional customer service and great vibe and we were more impressed then we could have imagined! Staff will go out of their way to show you a great time and offer suggestions for all over! Great breakfast and had an amazing cabina over looking the forest. Who doesn't love to wake... More

Luz en el Cielo attracts positive open minded travelers from all over, modern nomads, and awesome hippies. Tons of solo travelers and small groups of travelers, very easy to meet people here. The people really make your experience. It truly is your home in the Jungle while you are in Montezuma. It was great to wake up to the sounds... More

I showed up at 11:30pm with no reservation and sure enough they had a bed for me. There's free wifi, the staff are absolutely lovely, it's clean, and the complimentary breakfast is always outstanding. Definitely the place to go if you find yourself in Playa Montezuma. English and Spanish are both spoken by the majority of the staff, and there... More

I stayed here for 8 days this past December with a friend in the cabina that has a slight view of the ocean. The cabina is set up for two friends traveling, with a partition wall set up between the beds. I love the hostel community aspect but it was nice to have a private room. Abbie if you read... More
