Monte Libano is a 5 min walk from downtown Puerto Lopez which means you listen to waves rather than traffic as you fall asleep! The family were very welcoming of me; Maria chatted with me in the evening which was really nice. There are several areas to sit and relax or use wifi. The family dogs were very calm and... More

Monte Libano is a Robinson Caruso-like hostal right on the beach south of the pier on a quiet and nearly finished section of the malecon. Our hostess, Valentina, served us a variety of nice breakfasts, left us the key to the kitchen for late night beers, gave us the run of the place on our last day as we waited... More

We spent 4 beautiful days in Monete LIbano. The family that runs the hostel ist nice and helpfull. Puerto Lopez is not the nicest place ever, but is relaxed enough and very close to Machalilla and Los Frailles, a really beautifull beach!

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
