I use to visit Ecuador every year and I always stay at Esperanto hostel because I like a lot! It's close to the party and nightlife but still it's calm in the night so you can sleep. The terass on the roof has a outstanding view and is perfect for just chilling. You can't find anything better :)

Awesome location, great views, and an amazing host! We definitely enjoyed our stay and I look forward to my return! Jorge is a gracious host and helped us navigate the plethora of surf spots in the region.

Great place to stay that is a bit removed from the party noise at night. Less than a five minute walk from the beach or the center of town. Staff is very friendly. Great balcony with hammocks to watch the sunset. Very clean. You can still hear the noise at night a bit from this location, but far better than...

Great hostel, really friendly helpful staff. Great kitchen, garden, small communal TV area with sofas and tonnes of DVDs and a roof terrace open until 10pm. Rooms were excellent, cleaned everyday, balcony, fan, lockers with charging ports inside and security boxes, towels included, bathrooms cleaned thoroughly everyday. Loved my stay, would definitely come back to this hostel!

For sure the best hostel in Montañitas! Very good atmosphere, clean. The owner is super friendly and always keen for a chat. The rooftop terrace with hammocks is absolutely stunning, especially while watching the sunset with a beer in your hand! What else do you need?

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...

I stayed at the Esperanto Hostel for 5 days. It was a wonderful experience. Super clean, great location, $2 beers. The main guy Eduardo is very nice and knows a lot of things to do around Montanita. The Terrace on top is the best thing ever. You get the benefit of the beach view without having to deal with sand...

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...
