Stayed here for a week in May 2015. Nice, clean hostel with good atmosphere. The rooftop is amazing, we always had pre-drinks with other hostel guests there before going out into Montanitas busy nightlife. Still quiet by nighttime so you could have a good nights sleep. The staff is friendly and the owner Jorge is a legend! Thanks for having... More

Really nice hostel and helpful owner, also regarding surfing and other towns and places. Lovely view from the roof top terrace. Enough partying opportunities near by, but the place itself is nice and relaxed. And super close to the beach!

The hostel is very beautiful. The rooms are very clean and everything was quite new. I would guess the hostel is only 2-3 years old. We enjoyed having breakfast in the garden and to see the sunset from the terrace. The owner was very kind and helped us a lot with the planning of our daytrips.

I didn't actually *intend* to stay at Esperanto -- I spent a week in a totally different hotel in Montañita -- but one night, when I got back to my hotel after a night out at the clubs, I realized I didn't have my room key, and the security guard didn't have a copy either. Jorge, Esperanto's friendly owner, found... More

THE best hostel in Montanita, South America perhaps? We booked Hostel Esperanto due to its price and location; pretty much on the beach, 3-5 minute walk into town so close enough to be part of it but away enough that you can get some sleep. Literally the perfect spot! It's probably the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in.. Not... More
