Stayed in this charming little hotel that was not only in city central but right off the broadwalk. Had all the amenities for a fun and safe stay and very pleased. Walkway to beach off pool was great-surrounded by restaurants, shops and street vendors. There was also some available parking. In peak season would recommend an advance reservation. Enjoy!!!!!!!

Only downsite was the noise of nextdoors animals but anywere else in the town you would have a lot more... More

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed staying at Charo's Hostal. It is beachfront, with a pool and a hot tub. We were impressed with the cleanliness and professionalism of the place. The only negatives were that a rooster lives next door and starts crowing at 4am and does not stop until well past 9am. You can hear him as if... More

This was our first time staying in a Hostal. The staff welcomed us in and treated us like the new guest we were. We enjoyed every minute there and walking thru Montanita. They have a beautiful and comfortable facility, which we liked and can't wait to return. We were able to stay out all night to party in the streets,... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Basic but good room with air conditioning. Nice pool and good drinks at the bar. The price was fantastic, and we loved the view of the ocean from our room. It was great!

The Charos Hostal is directly on the beach in Montanita and has its one pool and jacuzzi and also plenty of outdoor areas with hammocks. But the rooms like the whole hotel could be way more clean. Some parts would also better be renovated. There is basically no breakfast included (you can go to the kitchen and get some toast,... More

The hostal is located near the beach, the main road and night life. I had a great view of the ocean, room had balcony with hommock. There is nice pool, breakfast but just coffee and tea with bread and jam. I would recommend this hostal.

After a night in another hostel in Montañita we were glad to arrive here! The rooms are clean and comfortable. We got a private room with sea view for 33 dollar per night. WiFi is working great on the first floor. The hostal is located near the beach, away from all the streetnoise. All we could hear is the ocean.... More

Who ever runs this place takes it serious. Clean room, sheets smelled fresh. This hostal has a hot tub and a small pool. We had a great view of the ocean. Staff is always present, cleaning pool every morning, as well as doing various small projects to maintain the property. Direct tv in our room, but no remote. WiFi works... More
