This hostel is the only place to stay if you come to Olon. The ideal domicile if you are looking for the nightlife of Montanita but want to spend some quiet time on the beach during the day. Olon is only 4 minutes away from the crowded and loud party village of Montanita. Olon has its own beautiful long sandy and quite beach. The hostel is a bit hidden in the settlement Oloncito. Whatever the reason, there are two Hostal Oloncito?! Take the hostel on the left side with the palm of wood as a decoration at the entrance, it’s surrounded by a beautiful garden. The place itself it’s in a very good condition especially compare to other hostels I’ve seen on my way across Ecuador. The owner is a friendly older guy from Germany. I stayed with two friends in one of the seven bed rooms. The rooms are functional and very clean. Each room has a private shower and toilet. They provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for a little money, which is great if you are on a tight budget, but we were out and about most days and weren't up in time for breakfast. They offer an interesting cuisine with European and Latin influence. The owner cooks itself. Overall it is a great hostel with a great social atmosphere and a beautiful garden just 50 meters from the beach. There is a TV lounge, kitchen facilities, hammocks strewn up in the courtyard and Internet/Wi-Fi, tea and coffee.
I had a really lovely time here. It was very relaxing and easy to meet other guests. The staff was very helpful and e.g. clearly explained the bus connections to Guayaquil or to St. Elena. If we wanted the owner drove us to Montanita in the evening with his own Buggy. A wild and funny ride! The hostel is highly recommended. Go to Ecuador, I had the time of my life ... so far. Let's see what's coming.
