This place was actually quite good. The rooms were comfortable and whilst there was a little bit of noise coming from a nearby party, the hostel is well away from the main part of the town where all the real noise is. Good internet connections and a very nice hot and powerful shower. Hammocks on the porch are very welcome and the staff were friendly and helpful.
The one thing that was not so good was that our room did smell a bit musty, particularly the bathroom.

Incredible experience. WE WILL BE BACK! Located right on the Pacific Ocean. Just a short walk on the beach gets you into Montanita. Silvia and her staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms kept clean. Quiet location yet just steps away from the action. Breakfast and 12% tax included in daily rate. Fell asleep in one of the hammocks one night. Ocean sounds incredible. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Definitely a room facing the ocean would be preferable.

It´s a beautiful hostel, we really liked the room, it´s just in front of the ocean. A really good choice for couples :) it comes with a free breakfast, and is really quiet in the night but near front the parties, just need to walk a couple of blocks. Not really recommended for party guys, or groups that what to drink a lot better choose a hostal in downtown for that experience ;)

Room Tip: Choose back rooms are more private and also cheaper and I liked more than the rooms with view.

A 3 minute walk along the beach from downtown, this could be by far the best mid-priced lodging in Montanita. The rooms are basic but serve the purpose and you have them hammocks to relax outside. The included breakfast has fresh fruit, fresh natural juice, scrambled eggs, bread and jam.

Note, it;s not the hotel's fault but electricity can be sporadic in Montanita - be prepared.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the sea view rooms - we did not but it was still fine.

My friends and I have been to this hostel three times now. We love the relaxing environment at the hostel and the perfect distance to access the main streets and the ocean. The breakfast included with the stay was a good portion and fresh. The rooms are a good size and are comfortable. I definitely recommend staying at Kundalini!

As other reviews have stated, it's the perfect oasis setting just metres from the sands and ocean.
The staff did a great job of keepi g the room and communal areas clean and tidy - discreet and effective. A quality freshly prepared breakfast while watching the morning surfers was a welcome start to the day.
