We checked into Kon Tiki after agreeing a price of $18 a night for 3 nights. First impressions where that the room was nice, lovely spacious social areas and a great location. The first evening there was no hot water and we were told that there "should" be some in 5 minutes, if not then tomorrow. So we had cold... More

Hostal Kon tiki is a pleasant enough place. Run by a man named Jorge. It is a quick five minute walk into the middle of Montanita. You are far away enough to not need earplugs on a weekend, but it is close enough to feel involved in all. The rooms are small and the shower sporadically warm, and you will... More

I did not find this Hostal to live up to its advertising. It is very rustic. Says that it has a kitchenette, yes but it is invaded by two cats and has a refrigerator that does not work. The owner decide that the first floor would be best for me. Ones personal belongings are not safe in this establishment. My... More

While the room wasn't too clean (bathroom probably hadn't been cleaned) and our room perpetually smelled musty, the price and location were great. It wasn't too far away to enjoy the nightlife, but it gave some distance from the loud noise of town. It was also very close to the beach.

Wow. This place looked decent enough but my girlfriend and I were robbed in the night while sleeping and our door shut and locked. They took everything and the next morning when we confronted the english speaking employee he would not look us in the eye and did not seemed concerned at all that we were victimized. we definitely suspect...

First, I'd like to say that the guest were very, very suspicious people. They acted "nervous" for the thought robbery, but when I turned my back just a second, I found them laughing and smiling, that doesn't make sense at all, when you are worried about something the last thing you think of is laughing. Then I have to say... More

It is a three minute walk to beach, but at the same time not in the center of all the noise in town (in case you want to sleep). It is spacious, clean,open, and has a very home-y feel. Furthermore, they have wifi, a kitchen, and the owner is very kind and helpful with anything you need. When I come... More
