We loved the silence over there, each room has 2 hammocks which is great to have a beer and hear to the waves sound... friendly staff, clean room. is not luxury, you just have what you pay. very close to Montañita, but far enough to enjoy the silence. (4 minutes by walking) As an advice to the owners: would be...

Hostal Kundalini is a peaceful retreat from the often chaotic Montanita, and is only a short walk along the main road or beach front. It is directly accessible from the beach and has a broad lawn and gardens and is beautifully set surrounded by trees. The staff are a real help, particularly accommodating and helpful in dealing with our limited...

Kundalini is located right on the beach so you can hear the waves from your room. Each room had its own hammock outside its door, plus five more down by the beach. This place is very quiet, and only a five minute walk to the centre of Montanita where all the action is. I recommend staying at this place -...

Room was a little to rustic for my taste. Very dirty and the shower was smaller than a phone booth in London. Take some flip flops cause shower floor is nasty. Breakfast is very basic ad you are constantly reminded not to drink more than one juice or coffee. Staff does not answer are hellos and ignores our requests for...

Hi! thanks for your comment, for us is a surprise. We hire Xavier Pino as a new manager of the hostel and everyone in the hostel is very happy by his attention and service. I think you visited the hostel years ago, when we just started. We took off the sign of one coffe and juice per person like one...

Our first night in Montanita, and if we'd known, we would have booked for the week. The staff were incredibly friendly, the eggs and fruit breakfast lovely, waking up to the sounds of the sea and lazing on the room's hammock was idyllic, and close enough to the nightlife, to wobble home without being so close as to hear the...

We had a booking for 7 nights but stayed only 2. The location is super great - right on the beach, not exactly in the village, so you avoid the busy nightlife but you can be there in 5 minutes by walk. The surf Point is about 10 minutes along the beach. View is great. But - rooms are only...

Thanks for your comments! we really use comments to improve our service. I want to let you know that we have put air conditioner in almost all the back rooms that are the most affected by the climate! Also, we take off the signal of "only consume one per person". Its true that wifi signal is not good in the...

This was probably my favorite hostel in all of Ecuador. The location is perfect. Close enough, but far enough from the noise. The breakfast was good and the coffee was lovely. This family run hostel deserves it's #1 spot on trip advisor. Water was always hot and the views from the balcony are amazing. I will always remember the times...

Good location and the front rooms have terrific views, but the rooms are somewhat crummy (torn screens, very cheap furnishings, and below-average beds. The hotel is set in a quiet location just a few minutes walk from downtown, is right on the beach, and features hammocks on balconies and in a shaded area in front of the hotel - all...
