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.

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.
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.
