Budget place with everything you need in the forest but very close to city center. Loved the place, good breakfast and very friendly staff. The jungle noises at night add to the charm of this hotel. Would stay there again !

luz en el Cielo is one of my favorite hostels I've ever been to. It is not only very unique but is extremely clean as well. I stayed in two different dorm rooms. Both were very spacious, had a nice deck to sit on and since its in the forest you get to wake up and watch the wildlife on...

The walk to the hostel from the town center is relatively short but up a somewhat steep incline with cars coming around blind corners. The hostel itself had good and bad traits: the surrounding jungle was nice and secluded, the building itself was decent, but the rooms were tiny and the bathrooms sparse. There was a nice common area upstairs...

We were 6 people that first visited Montezuma, place that I recommend for everybody. We asked for a room at Luz en el Cielo, place that has previously been recommended to us, and we were right. Good rooms (we booked a room for all the 6 and it consisted on a 2 floor room with 6 beds and fans, also...

A full breakfast in the morning, friendly and helpful staff, and accomodations in the middle of the jungle with howler monkeys waking you up in the morning. It was an amazing experience. I also really appreciated that they give you a personal fan attached to your bunk bed. For a Canadian like me, it can be hard to sleep in...

Luz en el Cielo was a much-needed break away from mud (SO. MUCH. MUD.) after camping at Arenal in Costa Rica's rainy season, and it had everything we hoped for - beds, a warm shower, clean kitchen and toilets and friendly staff. Great place for chilling in a hammock, reading, or just marveling at the wildlife that inhabits the trees...

This hostel in laid-back Montezuma was everything we wanted. Great location, clean rooms and amazing service. There was hot water!!

This hostel,located in lovely, laid back Montezuma, goes above and beyond to be of service to its clients. I arrived very late at night, and slept in very late the next morning, but the hostel arranged to have a breakfast waiting for me. The hearty breakfast , by the way, is probably the best I've had in any hostel....tasty eggs,...
