Spend a week in this hostel and really have nothing bad to say, the service and attention was amazing, very good location as it was near the beach and near the center but far enough from the noise to rest well. Recommended to stay!.

we stayed in three hostels in Montanita and this really was the best one! 2 min outside the centre (quiet at night), 1 min to the beach. Clean rooms, comfy beds, every dorm has it's own bathroom, rooftop terrace with hammocks and seaview, kitchen, book exchange, lockers - everything you need to be happy and enjoy Montanita! :)

The Esperanto Hostal is truly a marvel waiting to be visited by you. Its location is unbelievable, the architecture of the building is beautiful, and well designed. The Employees and the owner of the hostal make you feel right at home with great service, a great onda as they would say, which means "good vibe", and the overall service was... More

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

This hostel was comfortable and very clean. It has a great view of the beach from the top floor( which everyone is allowed to go on) and the employees were very attentive. Its eco-friendly too! I will for sure be coming back here next time I visit Montañita, Ecuador! :)
