Luz en el Cielo Eco-B&B/Hostel


Description's Review

Luz en el Cielo Eco-B&B/Hostel has amazing customer service. The staff bend over backwards to make sure that everyone is taken care of and is having a wonderful vacation. The staff let guests use their personal phones to arrange shuttles, reserve accommodation in other locations, and even call home to fix a banking issue!

The Location

Montezuma, Costa Rica, is located on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula on the Pacific side of the country. The hostel itself has a perfect location; a short, five-minute walk into town or to the beach means that you're always within walking distance to the attractions and amenities of the town without the noise and bustle of the town. Located on the edge of the jungle, the hostel is often visited by howler monkeys, bats, raccoons, tropical birds, and other rare species.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms are equipped with two full-sized bathrooms. Both are modern, clean, and fully equipped for any hygienic needs. There are also two outdoor showers to wash sand off from the beach or have a quick cool off from the hot Costa Rican sun. The dorm rooms are small, clean, and only have two bunk beds in each. The staff change the bed sheets regularly even if if guests are staying longer. It can be crowded in there with backpacks on the floor, but a good night's sleep is in order with the new, high-quality mattresses and only four guests per room.

Common Spaces

Hammocks, deck chairs, and tables create a comfortable area that induces social interaction and lovely conversation with fellow world travelers. The kitchen is fully equipped with a large stove that allows multiple guests to make meals at the same time. A large, communal food container allows you to cook with many spices and sauces that most travelers don't want to buy for one meal. Free, delicious coffee all day and free breakfast keep you fueled and energized for your day of exploring. There is also free parking on site and free Wi-Fi.


The staff are very knowledgeable about the local area; they speak English, Spanish, and French. The staff are beyond friendly, always saying hello and keeping a smile on their face. This is an excellent hostel to relax and chat with travelers, learn to surf, snorkel, or explore the Cabo Blanco National Park.

Loved it
I stayed at this hostel on January 2013 and it was a big part of why I loved Montezuma. Slept in a 4 bed dorm, though it was a bit small there were bigger ones and only stayed there to sleep since you have many other spots to chill in the rest of the hostel (balcony, hammocks, common kitchen area). It's clean, with a fully equipped kitchen, nice and big breakfast, security at night, and lovely people. I kept meeting amazing travelers in this place, can't say anything but good things. The only "beware" is about the monkeys! The hostel is located on a hill and they wake you up but also they try to find food all the time, just don't pay attention to them!
