Had a wonderful time here for a few days in December. What stands out most about this hostel is the vibe. Every I met, staff and guests included, were inspiring and interesting. Jackson, Mike and Casey are genuinely friendly and helpful. Tamara, as some other reviewers have identified, is the savvy matriarch who makes sure all guests are comfortable. The... More

This place has a good potential but it is ruined by very bad maintenance, bad room design and over pricing. The only good things are the nice stuff (except the local cook) and the location (if you are looking for a quite place close to the surf point, and good wifi in the rooms. The bad things: poor room design.... More

I had a plan. To go from colombia to Argentina in 2 months. That plan changed pretty quick once I got to casa del sol. The location, the staff and the quality of life provided by this place created an environment that I found impossible to leave. Mike, Jackson, Casey, Juanito, and Wendy all made sure that my stay was... More

Location is wonderful, away from noisy center of Montanita. Great beach, nice little surfer enclave, great patio setting. Staff very friendly and helpful. Resident dog and cats were fun to play with. Yummy breakfast. My bed was very comfy. I chose a room with AC. That's the good points....now for a reality check of the rooms. My room needed maintenance... More

The spot is perfect: close enough to Montanita that you can easily walk if you feel like partying, but far enough that you can sleep at night. It's right by the break for those uncrowded early morning surf sessions. It's safe, there are a few good restaurants close by. The breakfasts are great. The staff is amazing.
