This is a great hostal. Dorms & bathrooms are clean. Good location, 1 minute from the beach, 2 minute walk to cocktail alley. Close to the bus station. The hostal is not a party hostal, which i appreciated and is far enough from all the party noise in town.

Great hostel located near the beach. Very short walk to town. Has a very nice terrace with hammocks on the top floor overlooking the sea. Montanita town is very noisy therefore it was nice to stay in a place where it was possible to relax and have a good nights sleep. The rooms are clean, sheets are changed often. There... More

Ha, Jorge - sorry, but I really enjoyed that one star review from "mdolling83". I mean, poor Alicia, but I can just hear this person saying, "CAN'T YOU SPEAK AMERICAN??" mdolling83 - how's your Spanish? Seems on par with your room booking abilities... Anyhow - Esperanto Hostel: Dreadful place. Nah, I'm kidding, of course. I wish I could buy it... More

Jorge is the proprietor of this fine establishment. He even emailed me to confirm my booking that I made on Hostelworld. He wanted to make sure that the accommodations were up... More

Montanita was my last stop in a 2-month trip through South America, and I was apprehensive because the 15+ other hostels I had stayed in during those 2 months led me to expect anything! Esperanto was a perfect choice though... Let's start with my arrival - I planned on staying in a dorm, but upon arrival, something had come up... More

Hostel Esperanto is set in the low-key area of Montanita. You can walk for five minutes in one direction and join the wild parties or a enjoy a... More

I stayed at Esperanto Hostel for a total of 2 weeks during a month-long surfing and yoga trip to Montanita. Of the 3 hostels i stayed at, this was my favourite. The price is very good value. Jorge (the owner) and his staff are really friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable (i tried both a 4... More

This may be my favorite hostel in South America! I was nervous about having a noise problem in Montanita, but the Esperanto Hostel is the perfect distance away from the action - close enough to walk there in less than 5 minutes, but far enough to have a good nights sleep. English/Spanish speaking staff, great kitchen, hot water, towels, clean... More
