The pictures seem to be from a hotel in Otavalo, not Montañita! We stayed at Las Palmeras in Montañita for one night. It was $10 per person if at least 2 people were sharing a room. The room had a full bed and a bunk bed. $15 per person if you want your own room. Private bathroom was small, clean, had good hot water in shower. Rooms were clean. The main issue was the outside noise from the loudspeaker urging people to go to the protest tomorrow. This went on for hours, and If it wasn't for my earplugs, I wouldn't have gotten any sleep. It is located away from the noise of party cental, so otherwise is kind of quiet. It's a short walk to the bars and restaurants, and feels safe to walk around at night. Hammocks and lounge chairs in the common patio. You can see a nice view of the ocean from the hammocks. Decent place for young people.
