Incredible experience. WE WILL BE BACK! Located right on the Pacific Ocean. Just a short walk on the beach gets you into Montanita. Silvia and her staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms kept clean. Quiet location yet just steps away from the action. Breakfast and 12% tax included in daily rate. Fell asleep in one of the hammocks one night....

A really good choice for couples :) it comes with a free breakfast, and is really quiet in the night but near front the parties, just need to walk a couple of blocks. Not really recommended for party guys, or groups that what to...

A 3 minute walk along the beach from downtown, this could be by far the best mid-priced lodging in Montanita. The rooms are basic but serve the purpose and you have them hammocks to relax outside. The included breakfast has fresh fruit, fresh natural juice, scrambled eggs, bread and jam. Note, it;s not the hotel's fault but electricity can be...

My friends and I have been to this hostel three times now. We love the relaxing environment at the hostel and the perfect distance to access the main streets and the ocean. The breakfast included with the stay was a good portion and fresh. The rooms are a good size and are comfortable. I definitely recommend staying at Kundalini!

As other reviews have stated, it's the perfect oasis setting just metres from the sands and ocean. The staff did a great job of keepi g the room and communal areas clean and tidy - discreet and effective. A quality freshly prepared breakfast while watching the morning surfers was a welcome start to the day.

Beautiful basic hotel just steps from the ocean. Nice and quiet away from the pounding music of downtown montanita. Friendly staff and some have English. Rooms are basic but generally clean - had to kill several spiders.

This hostal has a great location - right on the beach, and about a 3 minute walk to "downtown" Montañita. We were there in winter, so it was very quiet, though there were plenty if other guests. The rooms are basic but pretty clean, and each room has hammocks outside the door, which is where we spent most of our...

Shortly after arriving in Montañita - having found our destination, the Hostal Kundalini.....I already felt sad about having to leave again soon. My partner James and I have been cycling down the coast of Ecuador and being greeted with the warmth as if we were family members was something I didn't expect, nor did I think this place would be...

This small hotel is just a little off the centre of town which makes it the perfect spot in Montanita (if you stay closer to the center, you'll never sleep before dawn). We had planned to stay for 2 nights but stayed 4 nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but very clean. There is...
