Wonderful hostel, especially due to the very familiar feel and touch to it, guests interact a lot, there a family dinners, joined activities in very relaxed Montezuma. Clean and cheap, great terrace, hammocks, monkeys as morning guests, Don't miss the waterfall close by, exciting to jump down into the water!

This was the best place I stayed throughout my Central American travels. Abbey and Justin really know how to entertain and their family dinners were always so much fun. I visited many other highly rated hostels but none of them could match the same laid back, chilled out vibe that this place offers. The large upstairs balcony was a great place to chill, monkeys galore. We were there for about 5 days but I would've been happier staying longer.

Staying at Luz en el Cielo was a great experience. My friend and I stayed there for four nights, and had an amazing time. Abbie, Chavo, Hisayo, and everyone connected to the hostel are amazing and make you feel right at home. Breakfast is included in the price, and we cooked a few times -- delicious family style dinners. The location is excellent: right near the beach, in the forest, with monkeys coming and going regularly. Hammocks only add to the bliss. I recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Montezuma. The hostel, town, and surrounding area (waterfalls! beach! hikes!) are ideal.

Luz en el Cielo is one of those places that you can't understand until you arrive. You are in the middle of the gorgeous rainforest yet you can hear the waves crashing against the rocks along the beautiful shore of Montezuma. Daily you can lay in hammocks that rock as you watch white faced monkeys horseplay in the trees. The rooms are spotless and everything is so new. Maybe you want a hot shower, cold shower, warm shower....All is possible at Luz en el Cielo. Colorado (the owner) is very welcoming and from the states so the communication barrier did not exist. She also makes you feel like this is your place. Feeding you a free breakfast every morning and allowing you to keep in touch with people at home or around the world with her free wifi. $14 bux a night is more then a steal for a bed at this place and I'm excited to take some more friends back in the near future.

someone who gave me a ride from the airport recommended this place to me. it was a great surprise - super clean with an awesome staff that are friendly and welcoming {unlike a lot of the jaded hostel owners i've met} the first night i was there they cooked an tasty tico family style dinner and we all ate on the outdoor patio. in the morning i ate breakfast in a hammock and watched monkeys play in the jungle around me. its super close to town, but you still feel like youre in the jungle. beds were new and they had hot water for showers.

Abby and Hisayo are awesome hostesses! For my first time in Montezuma, Luz en el Cielo was a great place to call home for a couple of days. It´s in a great location just a couple minute walk outside the hustle and bustle of town. It´s also a great place to enjoy monkey viewing while relaxing on the porch in the rainforest. I am proud to be one of Abby´s first customers, will be back as soon as I can, and highly recommend her B & B! Thanks Abby!
