The owner and the staff as well as the patrons are generally nice people that you can grab drinks and dinner with. The owner went out of his way to make sure I could extend my stay. The patrons are generally mid 20s through mid 30s from all around the world, which made it easy to meet new people and... More

This was a beautiful hostal, more the quality of a hotel. Out of the 4 staff members working at the front desk we saw 3 who spoke very good English and the one who didn't was the night guard who didn't really need to. The terrace was amazing and a great place to hang out and meet people. Its located... More

This hostel is situated in a quiet area only 3 minutes walk from the busy town center. So you have lots of restaurants, bars and surf shops close by but still have the opportunity to get a good nights sleep without the noise from the center of Montanita. Staff and owner of the hostel are really friendly and provides great... More

Really clean hostel, but a bit pricey during the hollidays. Nonetheless, a good call if you're looking for a quiet place away from the noise during nightime. Would book there again if im going back to Montanita

We stayed here for 6 nights between Christmas and new year and stayed in a 5 bed room. Positives - close to the beach, very good security and nice roof top chilling area with hammocks and seats. Owner and staff very friendly. Negatives - very expensive for this period, even in comparison to other hostels in the area. Good that... More

I stayed here for 10 days and it was great. Its close enough to all the night time action but also far enough not to be bothered by it. Its right infront of a good surfing spot, the people who stay here usually get together to hang out and it made my stay at Montañita great. The owner is mad... More

The hostel is just a bit out of town which is good if you want to sleep at night. Hostel was also very clean and the roof terrace is also very nice. The beds are quite big for 1 person, but the shower and toilet are a bit small which seems to be everywhere in Ecuador. Overall we had a... More

We enjoyed our stay at Esperanto, it's very close to the Beach and Montañita centre for fun and food, yet far enough away to be peaceful. The top deck is really cool with a hammock and chairs, we sat there one night with beers watching a downpour of rain. Our room was private double and had four beds (2 bunk... More

We booked a private room at this hostel based on good reviews and enjoyed our 3-night stay. This hostel is located about a 5-minute walk from the center of town which means it's a bit quieter at night. Our room faced the center of town, so we could still hear some noise, so I would recommend bringing earplugs. Overall, the... More
