The hostel is just a bit out of town which is good if you want to sleep at night. Hostel was also very clean and the roof terrace is also very nice. The beds are quite big for 1 person, but the shower and toilet are a bit small which seems to be everywhere in Ecuador. Overall we had a... More

We enjoyed our stay at Esperanto, it's very close to the Beach and Montañita centre for fun and food, yet far enough away to be peaceful. The top deck is really cool with a hammock and chairs, we sat there one night with beers watching a downpour of rain. Our room was private double and had four beds (2 bunk... More

We booked a private room at this hostel based on good reviews and enjoyed our 3-night stay. This hostel is located about a 5-minute walk from the center of town which means it's a bit quieter at night. Our room faced the center of town, so we could still hear some noise, so I would recommend bringing earplugs. Overall, the... More

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... More

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?
