We stayed in one of the two cabinas and it was really clean and nice. We were amazed at how cool it was to sleep with the doors wide open and listen to the sounds of the jungle (although it was a little hard to get used to the first night). We woke up to monkeys and a view of... More

If you're looking to stay in Montezuma on a budget, this is the place to be. Abbie (owner/manager) is welcoming, fun and very helpful, as are all of the other staff (several were American, so our limited Spanish was no problem). Great atmosphere, the place seems to be designed so that everyone congregates on the porch and socializes - we... More

five of us stayed here and loved it... my boyfriend and I spent a night and the sweet cabina up above which was perfect, and the dorms were great as well. Nice touches like a well-stocked kitchen, new and firm mattresses, clean EVERYWHERE, and good, strong coffee. Abbie the owner is extremely helpful and offered recommendations for places to stay...

A very warm and cosy hostel/b&b. We were sleeping in the cabina above. The glass window in front of the bed can be opened completely. So it feels like you're sleeping in the middle of the beautiful forest. Sounds of birds and monkeys all around. When the sun rises the view through the trees is amazing. The rooms and kitchen...

Luz en el Cielo is just around the corner of downtown Montezuma and it´s worth to clim the few meter uphill for a pleasant stay. At this moment -feb 2012- they only had dormrooms, the cabinas were not finished yet. For only 15 dollars a night you get a bed in a room with 5 others, hot showers, Wifi all... More

I came to Montezuma on a whim, found Luz en el Cielo, and ended up staying for almost 3 weeks. Abbie and everyone else on the staff made me feel like family, and I made many wonderful friends during my stay. I will come again when I'm able and recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Montezuma. Pura Vida!!!

Luz en el Cielo is a dream for backpackers!!! It is super clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is super tasty. The hostel is located up a small hill from town which allows for a more nature like vacation - monkeys and iguanas can be seen (and heard!) on the property. We had a wonderful... More

This hostel is located in Montezuma, a great little hippie town. We stayed in the newer cabinas which have a private bathroom and shower for your shared room. It's super nice and if you wanted to party you could go to the kitchen just down the stairs and join in with everyone. There are lots of little shops to buy... More

Luz en el Cielo was a wonderful place to stay in Montezuma. Abbie and her team truly care about their residents and treat you like family! Breakfast is provided each morning and was a great way to start the day. Last but not least, you can't beat all the nature that surrounds this unique B&B. The resident Howler and Capuchin... 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
