We (a group of 4 people) stayed 9 days in Esperanto Hostel in Montanita. It is such a great place, very clean, comfortable rooms, nice staff and only 200m from the ocean. It is far enough from the Party Zone to be able to sleep at night - if wanted ;) but you are in the middle of the coastal... More

The Terrace on top is the best thing ever. You get the benefit of the beach view without having to deal with sand... More

The location is perfect, the room we stayed in had a great view and was clean and light. Mozzie nets provided on request and a really nice terrace at the top. However the reason I cannot say I really enjoyed my stay was the sheer amount of rules that are plastered everywhere you go. All of the rules are understandable... More

I really enjoyed my stay here, the beds were comfortable and clean. The hostel was always kept neat and tidy and the hosts are super friendly. I like that they provide a water top up for 25 cents so you don't have to buy a load of plastic bottles! Its really close to the beach and the bars and restaurants... More

Spend a week in this hostel and really have nothing bad to say, the service and attention was amazing, very good location as it was near the beach and near the center but far enough from the noise to rest well. Recommended to stay!.

we stayed in three hostels in Montanita and this really was the best one! 2 min outside the centre (quiet at night), 1 min to the beach. Clean rooms, comfy beds, every dorm has it's own bathroom, rooftop terrace with hammocks and seaview, kitchen, book exchange, lockers - everything you need to be happy and enjoy Montanita! :)

Stayed here for a week in May 2015. Nice, clean hostel with good atmosphere. The rooftop is amazing, we always had pre-drinks with other hostel guests there before going out into Montanitas busy nightlife. Still quiet by nighttime so you could have a good nights sleep. The staff is friendly and the owner Jorge is a legend! Thanks for having... More
