A really lovely property with probably the best location in Montanita, literally a few minutes walk to the action but really a world away. It is very quiet and extremely well tended....a lush green buffer between you and the beach, plenty of hammocks and chairs to relax. The rooms are well equipped with quiet Panasonic air conditioners, beds were a... More

I can say that this hostel is the best place of all Montañita. I go to Kundalini the most I can, I love to spend my free time over there, relaxing infront of the beach, and be able to sleep with the sound of the waves is priceless. The price includes breakfast, and theres nothing like have a cup of... More

Great quick stay in Montanita with a group of friends. Checked in late, but Diego was there to welcome us. The rooms were quiet, comfortable and affordable. Proximity to the Ocean and the town is incredibly close, but not too close when it gets noisy in the town. Missed out on the free breakfast because we had to leave so... More

When I arrived the staff put us in a different room to what I had asked for. Even after a rude, over-reacted email the staff were still extremely accommodating and sorted the problem out the next day. I would highly recommend them for anyone wanting a quieter hotel that is a good distance from town and right on the beach.

Price/value is by far the best in the area (no frills but high quality). For USD 50 the facilities are clean a comfortable, close enough to town but far away from all craziness when all you want to do is rest. Staff is very friendly and service met all my expectations. Highly recommended.

English was understood by all the staff enough to have our requests fulfilled. The staff and the owner went to great lengths to return some belongings forgotten in the room. The siting right on the beach was wonderful. The location is close enough to walk to town and far enough to be away from the party scene to be able... More

The location is terrific - close enough to the action, but not too close that you can't sleep because of loud music. The shower is nice, with hot water, and it's nice having a hammock - though we got a room facing away from the beach (the ones on the beach side must be spectacular especially at sunset). Beware of... More

My daughter who is 21 and I were looking for a fun but quiet place close to the action. Well this is the place, only 5 min stumble down the beach at night to get to town, right on the beach. Rooms were very adequate with AC and great breakfast. I highly recommend it! Close enough to town but far... More

I used to travel really often to Montañita, and I've stayed in almost every hotel, hostel, etc., in Montañita. Kundalini is the best in my opinion. A really relaxing place, just as far as needed from the party center. You have great "hamacas" and a perfect beach view.
