Hostel Lys – An Artistic Shelter At The Beach!

Hostel Lys, located right on the incredible Montezumian beach, is an avant-garde abode at a much lower price for renting a bedroom in contrast to all the rental houses and hotels. Hostel Lys, a speciality lodging in Montezuma, accommodates an assortment of travellers from all over the world, but is most famous amongst those on a budget, like students, adventurous couples, young backpackers, and tourists, and friends. It is an entertaining and soulful dwelling, dripping with lively artistic expressions. However, do take note that it is not everyone’s cup of tea as it is a little rough and musical, perfect for vivacious souls that would prefer a bouncy and vibrant vacation over a serene one.


The charming and stimulating Hostel Lys is operated by a group of debonair Italian amigos who make quite affable and laid-back hosts. The creative temperament and the poetic disposition of the hosts is reflected greatly in the Hostel Lys, from the funky decorations and creative designing to the fun-filled, family-style dinners every night that have an ever-changing menu. The meals are prepared with care, therefore they are superbly delicious and guests can bond with each other and the owners over the nightly dinners that are quite entertaining. They, the hosts at Hostel Lys, are fluent in English, Italian, and Spanish, and help guests when they can.

The accommodation very much off the beaten path, bursting with creativity and and funky paintings. Hostel Lys does not boast of cleanliness, endless amenities, or luxurious facilities.

The hostel rooms are basic with necessities such as a double bed room and a private bathroom with shower. However, the rooms are artful with an inspirational vibe that encourages self-expression and encourages guests to bring out and embrace the queer and uncanny artist within themselves along with all the diversity that surrounds them.

There is also a cave room that can be booked by guests upon request. It is different from all other rooms owing to its architecture and design. The interior, which looks and feels like a cave, is built, painted, and carved out of cement. Overhead are rocks equipped with a private shower that sprays through the rocks and adds to the sensation of having your shelter in a den.

Hostel Lys has a sublime view of the beach, especially from the patio that is quite perfect in its stark modesty which consists of a sweeping umbrella awning over the golden sands.  The patio is where the guests and the hosts themselves hang out, chill, and enjoy the beautiful beach. Adventurous souls may venture into the brilliant sea and feel the gorgeous waves crashing upon them. The patio is also where guests may enjoy their meals as the hostel rooms are not equipped with a separate dining area or kitchen

This beachfront hotel, Hostel Lys, is in the Montezuma town centre which is a pro for the guests who are mainly backpackers on budge and would rather walk than hire a vehicle. Therefore, guests can also visit the various shops and restaurants in the town.

Hostel Lys has a common area furnished with a pool table and foosball for the guests. Additionally, free WiFi is also available that guests can use to stay in touch, share their vacation pictures and other details with friends and family at their convenience. Guests can also pitch a tent and on the beach in front of Hostel Lys and gaze at the stars at night or enjoy the sunrise.

Hostel Lys is not everyone’s cup of tea. However, it is great for those who want to rough it, live in the moment, dance to some salsa at night, and relax while having the option of embracing some crazy fun at a very reasonable costing.
