First off, I stayed here in December 2011, but unfortunately I can't add that to when I traveled on TripAdvisor, but I would assume nothing has changed. This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at when I traveling in South America for the second time. My girlfriend and I at the time choose this hostel from Hostelworld.com because... More

If you like traveling to places and staying for a week or so (or more) then it would be hard to find a better place than Casa del Sol. In the quiet part of Montanita at the point so able to avoid the hustle and bustle, but if you want to head out to town to party then it is... More

What attracted me to book with Casa Del Sol was the surf & yoga combo, but the true value of this place are the people and the location. The staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly and fun. Especially Jackson, who has a heart of gold and made me laugh more than anyone. The yoga was great as well.... More

This place is really chill. Its just far enough outta town so you can get some sleep at night and close enough to walk back and forth into town. The point break is right across the street and you can walk on the beach into town which only takes about 10 min more or less. There is a restaurant which... More

Casa del sol is incredible. Amazing people, great staff, lovely rooms, delicious food, perfect location, and all that with options for yoga, spanish and surf classes. It's close enough to the town to get in and enjoy a party night, but then far enough away that you can sleep in a tranquil environment. It's so close to the beach, and... More

The bathrooms are really clean, the room was comfortable and cozy. Breakfast was delicious and the people is really friendly and nice. It is located nearly 10 minutes away from town so you're away from all the noise, which doesn't mean it's boring, they actually put on some music some nights.

Great breakfasts. Very close to the beach front, yet fair enough away from the noisy downtown area. Rooms are a bit outdated, but not badly. I loved the yoga studio and its proximity (note that you have to pay, $35 for 5 classes is the best deal). Wifi worked quite well. Lovely staff; really tried to make sure you had... More

Tamara has this place dialed in nicely. The rooms are decent, the breakfast is delicious, the beer is cold, and the vibe is right. This is a place you may come for a few days, and stay a few months. 7-8 minute walk on the beach, into town, which is perfect if you value your sleep. If you saddle up... More
