I've been putting off writing this review for a couple of weeks, because I simply can't find the words to describe how lovely my stay was. I woke up every morning to glimpse the sun rising through the French doors of my cabina. I looked forward to running downstairs to catch breakfast before my daily adventures. I delighted in watching... More

We really enjoyed our two nights here and the breakfast is great. Hot water all of the time which was a real bonus. We opted for the dorm plus which was an extra $5 per night each. I wouldn't bother, the 'ensuite' was a corrugated iron shed with a shower curtain rather than a door, and wasn't ensuite, you still... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

This hostel in laid-back Montezuma was everything we wanted. Great location, clean rooms and amazing service. There was hot water!! Jhonny was able to give lots of suggestions for activities and restaurants and made sure we were always happy with everything we booked through him. The breakfast might have been the best we had while in Costa Rica! And having... More
