“Best bet for a stay in Montañita”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Price/value is by far the best in the area (no frills but high quality). For USD 50 the facilities are clean a comfortable, close enough to town but far away from all craziness when all you want to do is rest. Staff is very friendly and service met all my expectations. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for rooms that face the yard/beach.

English was understood by all the staff enough to have our requests fulfilled. The staff and the owner went to great lengths to return some belongings forgotten in the room. The siting right on the beach was wonderful. The location is close enough to walk to town and far enough to be away from the party scene to be able to sleep before 3:00am. I even had the chance to practise a guided Yoga session.

Room Tip: Little half duplex at the back was very private

The location is terrific - close enough to the action, but not too close that you can't sleep because of loud music. The shower is nice, with hot water, and it's nice having a hammock - though we got a room facing away from the beach (the ones on the beach side must be spectacular especially at sunset). Beware of the top bed - it's high up, and you gotta be careful climbing on and off. Certainly wouldn't use it after a couple of drinks.

My daughter who is 21 and I were looking for a fun but quiet place close to the action. Well this is the place, only 5 min stumble down the beach at night to get to town, right on the beach. Rooms were very adequate with AC and great breakfast. I highly recommend it! Close enough to town but far enough away to be quiet and sleep!

I used to travel really often to Montañita, and I've stayed in almost every hotel, hostel, etc., in Montañita. Kundalini is the best in my opinion. A really relaxing place, just as far as needed from the party center. You have great "hamacas" and a perfect beach view.

Magic place , definite the best hotel in Montañita , you have the beach right at your feet . Hotel provides a chill & relax atmosphere with excelent amenities .
Rooms are very confortable , the have a/c , hot water , closet , wifi . Perfect if you are planning a long stay. Plus the price y not expensive at all.

Room Tip: All the rooms have something special , but if you want a nice view ask for 2nd floor ocean view

we stayed here in october, and although the hostal was supposedly under some renovation the owner let us have a great ocean view room, which was simple but clean and efficient. a bathroom in the room and also a small balcony. unfortunately the weather was not the best in october but we still had a good time in montanita. the hotel was 5 minute walk on the beach from the center of town.which is better for sleeping although you could still hear the parties from the beach. but i can imagine in downtown it would be impossible to sleep from the noise. the breakfast was included and was pretty good, with some bread and eggs and fresh juice and fruits and coffee. we were very pleased with the hostel and especially the price, i think we paid between 15-20 usd per person for the ocean view.

Room Tip: the ocean view room was great
