This hostel is honestly one of the best ones you can find in Montanita. If you are looking for the price range of 12-15$/person then don't waste your time at the other hostels. Spend your day at the beach and just come straight here, trust me I wish we did that rather than waste hours looking at hostels. It's clean, has great security, rooms are a decent size, beds are awesome, private bathrooms, and WIFI! A luxury you won't get at many other hostels (perhaps the hotels you might) In a year or so there will be a pool on the upper floor! It is also silent at night. One big problem with hostels in Montanita is that they are mostly close to the parties which last literally until the sun comes up and even then, still keeps going. The noise of the party doesnt reach this hostel, but its still right in town. You can only hear the ocean at night. The people who stay here are also super cool :) as well as the staff! Maybe if you are lucky Wilson will cool you Argentinian BBQ, which was delicious!

We recently had the most wonderful stay at Hotel Alebrijes. We initially planned to stay in Montanita for only two nights before traveling to see more of the coast. After our first night at Hotel Alebrijes, however, we knew it couldn't get any better and so we changed our plans and stayed for over a week!

Hotel Alebrijes is such a lovely place. It is a brand new hotel, and the owner, who has a background in engineering, has not overlooked any detail in its construction. The design is beautiful, with its brightly painted walls, elegant crown molding, natural bamboo accents, and colorful array of ceramic tiles. Most of the rooms have a bunk-bed style layout that sleeps three people very comfortably (a queen-sized mattress underneath a twin-sized), though there are other room arrangements that can sleep more people. The mattresses are some of the most comfortable that I have slept on in my entire life...promise! The bathrooms are nice too, with dual flush toilets and large showers with plenty of hot water. Soft cotton towels are provided, too. In the hotel lobby, there is a common area with comfortable furniture and a hammock, a perfect arrangement for making new friends with fellow travelers. Outside the hotel there is a water spigot for washing off sandy feet. Again, no detail has been overlooked!

This hotel is ideally located as well. It's directly on the beach, and some rooms have ocean views. For those that don't, one only needs to open their door for a stunning vista of the magnificent Montanita surf. Also, the hotel is just a block off one of the main streets in town, so you are very close to the action and nightlife of Montanita. This one block, however, provides enough distance so that when you are ready to leave the party, you can fall asleep to the sounds of the surf instead of a thumping bass.

Even better than Hotel Alebrijes' perfect location and attentive detail to design, the owners of the hotel know how to welcome their guests. Their sweet personalities make one feel right at home, and they are eager to share tour information about the area (English is spoken!). Because of all these reasons, I feel like Hotel Alebrijes is the best of Montanita and I will certainly stay there again!
