I kind of can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my lengthy stay at Lumaga. This hostel is an absolute gem and is run by the kindest and loveliest family. Ever. It is in an ideal location, off the party strip but still central to everything and is situated on a large expanse of land that is a sanctuary... More

Considering the owners did not speak much English, my stay was still so comfortable and they tried to meet all our needs. Their daughter is the cutest little thing and willingly shows you around the place (including picking at all the fruit trees in the garden) Location for me was perfect since it was a stroll from the beach and...

We have stayed here a couple of times this year. It is perfect! Hot water showers, a good bed and mosquito net provided. We always stayed in the rooms in the garden that are further away from the Main Street. You do hear some noise of the parties going on in town but we were still able to catch a... More

It's has the perfect location; just a... More

Ended up there by accident and really liked it. People who run the place are friendly, rooms look new, clean and big. Plus a nice pet iguana. Close to the beach and a two minute walk to the center. Deff worth a visit when you want to stay in montanita.
