Property Information:

Esperanto is one of the newest independently owned hostels in Montaita. We opened our doors in 2011. The Hostel is strategically located in a quiet, safe neighborhood, close to the town's main strip and just a few meters from the ocean. Of course with a beautiful view of the beach and the sea. We offer all the comforts and services that you as traveler/backpacker may need, always meeting our commitments with the environment.

All rooms have the same amount and kind of comfort. Fans, mosquito nets and safety boxes in every room. Hot water in all showers (non electric). Electricity generator in case of power out. There are also communal benefits such as the kitchen, TV lounge, terrace, computer, internet connection and more.

We are proud to say that our hostel is totally unique. We guarantee that Montaita and its wonders along with our list of amenities and friendly staff will make it hard for you to leave!

    This was a great hostel with a great location. Beautiful roof terrace with ocean view and hammocks. Very chill atmosphere. There was always someone ready to help at the front desk and it was removed from the bulk of the noise from the party life. Hot showers were hit or miss and so was the wi-fi, but overall a really great hostel. I would recommend it to anyone headed to Montañita.

Cancellation Policy

This property has a 3 day cancellation policy.
Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay, unless otherwise stated below (see 'Things to Note' information).

Things to Note

You�ll need to send to the hostel the security code (CVV/CVC) of the card you used when booking (this is the last 3 digits of the number on the signature strip at the back of your card) in the following 48 hours, in order to fully secure your booking. Failure to do so may result in you losing your reservation. Our hostel, is not recommended for kids, due has 4 floor. We have 24 hours attention, in the night if you see the door close, just ring the bell, =) if you arrive to the town JUST ASK about ESPERANTO HOSTEL, by the beach, or also as good reference for DHARMA BEACH HOTEL as is just 10 mt close to it. Remember we just accept cash. if the amount is less 100 usd :) Sometimes for some people, who are looking for a 102% of absolute silence and peace, maybe Montañita could be not the place, specially the weekends, besides our hostel is located in the most perfect location (close from the center but enough away from the noise),and we have norms about keep the hostel environment en relax and chill environment, it is very well know the town is not like that sometimes, so be aware and check in a prior about what to expect in Montañita Beach Town =)) THE BALANCE DUE FOR ALL RESERVATIONS MUST BE PAID IN FULL IMMEDIATELY ONCE ARRIVED AT THE HOSTEL, AT CHECK IN, OTHERWISE WON´T BE ABLE TO USE THE ROOM.
