Casa Del Sol is a super chilled, friendly hostel, located 30 seconds walk to the beautiful beach in Montanita. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and the hostel operates with a level of efficiency, yet with a a great attitude that nothing is a problem. There is always someone at the reception/bar ready for a chat and should you wish... More

What attracted me to book with Casa Del Sol was the surf & yoga combo, but the true value of this place are the people and the location. The staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly and fun. Especially Jackson, who has a heart of gold and made me laugh more than anyone. The yoga was great as well.... More

This place is really chill. Its just far enough outta town so you can get some sleep at night and close enough to walk back and forth into town. The point break is right across the street and you can walk on the beach into town which only takes about 10 min more or less. There is a restaurant which... More

Casa del sol is incredible. Amazing people, great staff, lovely rooms, delicious food, perfect location, and all that with options for yoga, spanish and surf classes. It's close enough to the town to get in and enjoy a party night, but then far enough away that you can sleep in a tranquil environment. It's so close to the beach, and... More

The bathrooms are really clean, the room was comfortable and cozy. Breakfast was delicious and the people is really friendly and nice. It is located nearly 10 minutes away from town so you're away from all the noise, which doesn't mean it's boring, they actually put on some music some nights.

Great breakfasts. Very close to the beach front, yet fair enough away from the noisy downtown area. Rooms are a bit outdated, but not badly. I loved the yoga studio and its proximity (note that you have to pay, $35 for 5 classes is the best deal). Wifi worked quite well. Lovely staff; really tried to make sure you had... More

Tamara has this place dialed in nicely. The rooms are decent, the breakfast is delicious, the beer is cold, and the vibe is right. This is a place you may come for a few days, and stay a few months. 7-8 minute walk on the beach, into town, which is perfect if you value your sleep. If you saddle up... More

Had a wonderful time here for a few days in December. What stands out most about this hostel is the vibe. Every I met, staff and guests included, were inspiring and interesting. Jackson, Mike and Casey are genuinely friendly and helpful. Tamara, as some other reviewers have identified, is the savvy matriarch who makes sure all guests are comfortable. The... More

This place has a good potential but it is ruined by very bad maintenance, bad room design and over pricing. The only good things are the nice stuff (except the local cook) and the location (if you are looking for a quite place close to the surf point, and good wifi in the rooms. The bad things: poor room design.... More
