This place was really nice. One of the cleanest and neatest hostels I've stayed in. Amazing views from the balcony up stairs with hammocks to lay in. Clean, well maintained comfy rooms. Far enough away from the centre to get a good night sleep but close enough for a short walk. Young lady at the desk was very friendly and... More

An every time i was glad to stay and sleep at the Esperanto where the rooms and bathrooms are clean , where is always hot and clean water and where... More

Walking distance to the beach, great views and very clean. Picked this hostel because it was close to town but far enough where you could get some sleep from all the music. I had such a nice stay the first time that I returned for two more stays later on in the year. Never had a bad experience before and... More

The Esperanto is a nice place to stay at the "outskirts" of Montanita (it's a small town though). 1 minute to the beach, 5 minutes to the city center (you can still hear the party noise at night, even though rather soft). Nice dorms (with lockers) and bathrooms, decent WiFi, a kitchen area, a little garden area and a nice... More

Travelling by myself, I found a home in Esperanto for my time staying. Its a beautiful hostel perfectly located - walking distance to rock the parties but in a quiet area to find enough sleep and silence to surf the waves as directly located at the beach. Up on the roof you find hammocks which invite to chill, enjoy the... More

I stayed in Esperanto Hostel for 4 nights and it is definitely a very good value for its budget price. The owner Jorge and his staff takes good care of every single guest with great attention and recommendations for the activities in the town and in its surroundings. The rooms are cleaned every day and each room has its own... More

I stayed here for 4 nights. A step above other hostels i've stayed in during my trip. They change the sheets every other day, plus give you a new towel for showering every day. Very budget friendly as well. It's also located far enough from the town center where you can actually get some sleep, but close enough where it's... More

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.
