    Un hostal muy bonito, limpio y bien ubicado. Me parecía estar en paraíso. Natalia y Blanca son unas personas tan amables, fabulosas, y te hacen sentir bien acogido/a. Quería quedarme más noches pero desafortunadamente no había disponibilidad, así que les consigo que reserves con antelación !

    I stayed at Luminosa in March, and at first when my taxi was driving towards the place the road was so terrible and bumpy that, i thought I had made a huge mistake. But when I entered the back to check in, I was blown away by the view of the water and the hostels pristine secluded beach area. The hostel is a bit of a walk away from towns centre area but its close to the montezuma waterfalls, and has all important necessities. The owner lady is also very knowledgable of town & events.

    Really enjoyed my stay. Met lovely people. Dorm bed was comfy, slept well listening to the sound of the waves! Great for chilling in a hammock in the garden that overlooks the sea, the view is stunning. It’s clean. Staff were really friendly and informative about the local area. Kitchen on site too. It’s a 10 min walk from central Montezuma but it’s an easy walk so this didn’t bother me. Would stay again!

    Montezuma & Luminosa were my first stop in Costa Rica, and I couldn't have dream of better. The view from the hostel is wonderful. The place is very clean. Natalia & Blanca are so nice! They gave me great recommandations and helped me book activities & transportation. I would recommend 300%. The place and the city are also very safe for women travelling solo.

    Lovely view and location. 10 min walk to beach- not an issue but was sometimes tiring in heat. Ok kitchen. No AC which we found hard at times.

    We had very high hopes and expectations based on the 9.0+ review on the website and we were very disappointed by the reality of this hostel. Weird, tiny bunks, none of which matched each other and if felt like we were sleeping in a small boys room. We also struggled to get consistent wifi at the hostel and the place was very unclean.
