Monte Libano was exactly what I was looking for to spend my last week in South America. The place itself it's right on the beach, a bit secluded from the main avenue and the malecón which made my stay even better.Despite what it looks like it's just few minutes walking to the fish market and the shopping streets. All the... More

My family (with two young children) stayed at Monte Libano for a few months and really enjoyed our time there. It has the feel of a guest house, with a family-like environment. The owners are very accommodating and worked hard to resolve any issues that arose during our stay. For example, we asked them to install a rail on the... More

This hostel offered a useful variety of room configurations. Hostess Maria is very accommodating and friendly. She provided recommendations for a restaurant and a boat tour provider both of which turned out spectacularly. Hostel is kid-friendly, across the road from the beach. Purified water is provided for cooking and refilling your water bottle. The kitchen is functional, if a little... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Monte Libano. It is right on the beach and just a short walk to the main stretch along the beach but far enough so that it is nice and quiet. The staff are very friendly and helpful and you can arrange tours through the hostel. Each bed had a mosquito net and there was... More

This hostel has a lot of potential. It's very "cool". Unfortunately, they had torn up the road to build a malecon in town so there were constant tractors going by, along with their noise, dogs barking at the tractors, and the dust. Everything in town is covered in dust. My computer go covered with dust. The owners also have a... More

My son and I stayed in the tree house, which was fun. The tree branches and wires blocked most of the view to the water, but the breeze through the open windows was pleasant. I'd recommend the tree house for a couple rather than mother and teenager because of the close quarters. We were grateful for the hammocks just outside... More

Hostel is right on beach front so location is perfect for tours (there's not much else to do in Puerto Lopez). Kitchen wasn't clean nor well equipped but you can eat in town cheaply. Wifi good, staff friendly and helpful. We got a clean double room with decent mosquito net for same price as two dorm beds. You can also... More

Turned up at this hostel in the night when it was raining hoping to get a bed. They had no room for us but said they could set up some tents for $5 a night plus a $3 renting fee. They set up these tents for us with air beds and everything - luxury camping in a tree house! They... More

A friend recommended this hostel to me, a funky little spot that feels like you're in a treehouse. Puerto Lopez was our first stop on the coast, and we ended up staying three nights, camping. The hostel is quite literally on the beach, but far enough down to give it a secluded, traquilo feel. The owners were great, and their... More

We stayed at this wonderful place for three nights. We really were treated like family and will definitely stay here again when we return. Our experience was similar to all of the glowing reviews. We stayed in the private room with private bath. The queen bed was comfortable and had mosquito netting. The room had air conditioning and was quiet.... More
