Very chill hostel in crazy Montañita. Perfect location, close to the beach, friendly staff, nice rooftop. Close enough to the parties, but in a quieter area of Montañita.
Absolutely loved it here and would re-visit anytime I went back to Ecuador. Location is perfect, the rooftop overlooks the ocean and the beach is only a 2 minute walk away. Not in the heart of the town, but that’s only about a 5 minute walk away. Jorge (the owner?) is very nice and is good to chat with. Rocke is also phenomenal. Great backyard for hanging out if you want some downtime. Clean. No concerns at all. You get a good size security lock box and rooms have a balcony. Thanks for the stay!
This place was exactly what I was looking for. Great atmosphere. Met people from all over the world and enjoyed going out into the city with them. Not a "party" place but the perfect place to meet people- good quality people. My stay in the city was 100% made by the people I met here. The place is clean and well kept. So much fun. 10/10 would go back and stay here. Found people from 6/7 different countries, early to mid twenties. Great people.
Best hostel in montanita!! Generous breakfast, clean bathroom/kitchen, lovely rooftop terrace - I stayed in five cheaper hostels during a 3week stay and this was worth the extra dollars. Also good if your Spanish not up to scratch as seems to attract alot of English speakers.
This was such a great hostel! The staff made it feel like a really chilled out welcoming environment, especially was so helpful and lots of fun. This hostel was sooo close to the beach and town, perfect location. Great Wi-Fi, free breakfast, lockers in rooms and comfy beds.
I’m sure I was the oldest one staying there and felt very comfortable and excepted. The staff was very friendly and help me find the best restaurants and places to go out. The place far exceeded my expectations in style and design. It was just far enough away from the night clubs that the music wasn’t a problem, but only a few minutes walk away. It was very clean and well kept as a hostel. I highly recommend this place to all.
We absolutely loved our stay at Esperanto and highly recommend it. The whole place is super clean and comfortable. Nice that they offer breakfast - I recommend buying your own eggs to accompany the bread & fruit provided. One of the highlights would definitely be the rooftop with hammocks and chairs to relax! The staff are absolutely amazing and do everything to make sure you have an excellent stay. Definitely not a party hostel, but it’s still easy to meet people! Thanks for an amazing stay! 🙂
