My friend and I stayed at Luz en el Cielo during early June 2016. We had an AMAZING stay! Literally this is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in (I came home and tried to convince my husband we should move to Montezuma). The setting itself is beautiful, the place is nestled among the trees in a super... More

I stayed with three other friends in one of the dormitories (cheapest rate) that is attached to the main building. Our room was hot, but this was too be expected in Costa Rica and in a costal town. The ceiling fan helped to alleviate some of the heat. The space was very cramped. Upon arriving, the host greeted us and... More

We are very sorry that you did not have a good experience at Luz en el Cielo. Unfortunately you visited Montezuma during the buggy season, and it is always very hot here. We are located in the middle of the jungle so it is very hard to avoid mosquitos and other insects in the open areas. (Most of the hostel... More

"Wow, just wow" was constantly the phrase I chose daily. I arrived to a cheerful smile of one of the staff members, Hannah. She's a seasoned world traveler and kept my mind spinning of her journeys plus an added bonus, she's Massachusetts born like I am! Needless to say she kept me laughing through out my stay! The other staff... More

This place is absolutely amazing! It was above our expectations. We stayed in one of the tree houses, surrounded by beautiful nature and super close to the beach. My boys are 13, 10 and 8 years old and they loved that place. I need to confess that it was hard to come back home. The Luz En El Cielo crew... More

Laid back jungle living with complimentary breakfast. The receptionist took us on an all day beach walk that ended up at a waterfall that poured into the ocean (on her day off). Spectacular. One night the owners were grilling their dinner and offered to cook our food for us as well. Super generous. The resulting family meal was the best.... More

Spent a week and a half in this small town and were fortunate enough to stay in this awesome hostel. The staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the breakfast is great. Can't go wrong staying here.

My wife and I were renting a cabin at Luna Llena for four nights and really enjoyed our stay there. Then we moved next door, a few metres up the main road to Luz en el Cielo for our last two nights. There were more stairs to climb up to our Vista "Ocean View" Cabin unlike our cabin next to... More

I think the title of my review pretty much says everything about it. Enzi and Jonnhy have been great with people. Typical breakfast was the best! The place is located a four minute walk from the main street where you can find all the bars and restaurants. It is also a very short walk from the beach.
