Travelling in a group of 6 friends this was the perfect spot for us. We wanted somewhere that offered a balance between the lively town of Montanita and a relaxing place close to the beach. Punto Verde provided just that. The hostel is situated a top of a small hill offering a great view of the beach. Getting into town... More

This is a beautiful space and concept. We only stayed two nights in the bungalow, but it´s a really lovely choice for guests that enjoy rusiticty and shared spaces. The view is spectacular. There is very little running water, which we did not mind due to the fact we spent most of our time at the beach. But any negative... More

My boyfriend and I had travelled 18 hours to get here and arrived late and the owner could not even get out of bed for us and just shouted things at us from her bedroom.. The facilities weren't great and it was very removed from everything. We decided to find a new place first thing is the morning. We walked... More

This was the perfect place to meet like minded travelers and have space to relax. It's a small walk to town, but you can do that along the beautiful beach to get into the heart of everything. Joos will cook you a great breakfast every day and her very cheap home cooked dinners are awesome too. Wish I could have... More

Punto Verde is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! The dorms have a view of the ocean & perfect wifi. The owner is friendly and the whole place is environmentally friendly! (Which is a huge plus in my book!). Situated a short walk out of town you pass many other hostels on the way. Punto Verde... More

This place is outstanding in Montañita! Just a few minutes walk from the beach and away from the sometimes noisy village of Montañita, this is an oasis overlooking the ocean with a very familiar atmosphere. The breakfast is great and the beds are absolutely comfortable and Joos, the owner of this place is a perfect host and makes you feel... More

This place has an amazing view and the atmosphere is ideal for those wanting to get out of the built-up town environment. The staff in particular made my stay even better. The food they cooked was delicious and their friendly service made the place even more hospitable. This place is not to be missed if you are in Montanita.

The dorm is very spacious and the view from the balcony is amazing. You get to see the surf break from there and you can decided if you want to surf it or not. Joos (the owner) is very hospitable and very friendly. I was supposed to be there for 2 nights and stayed for 12. If you are looking... More

I'll start with the hostess: Joos Fleskens has changed my life. She acquired the land a few years ago and has built an incredible jungle getaway that is green in every aspect. She built most of the buildings herself, she keeps the fridge stocked with Pilsener, she has the most interesting stories, and welcomes guests and their opinions into her... More
