This place was great. The best part is the rooftop patio - very close to the beach so you can hear the waves from the patio. It's great. Location overall is good. 5 minute walk to the centre of town (Montanita is very small) and right by the beach. Only downside is the hostel didn't serve breakfast - but they did have a kitchen. Would definitely recommend!
Amazing seaview from the terass. Wi-fi in the room, that is really good. Beautiful backpacker hostel!!!

The hostel is a small tower with a couple of rooms on each floor. We were on the 3rd floor in room 6 - up a few sets of very steep stairs. The last bit was more like going up a ladder, which was difficult with luggage. Our room had a double sized bunk bed, which was comfortable enough. I wasn't feeling well, so I slept on the bottom, while my husband took the top. He was distressed to find hair strands up there. Drumming and loud music interrupted our sleep every night, sometimes till dawn.

Away from the main drag, which was nice for noise control. Staff were hit and miss, depended who was on that day. Nice rooms though
Fantastic hostel. Nice clean dorms, friendly staff and great wifi! Very near the beach and just far enough away from town for a good night's sleep. Also they refill big water bottles for 25c a go which is a nice idea
Great hostel located close to the beach. Very short walk to town. Has a very nice terrace with hammocks on the top floor overlooking the sea. Montanita town is very noisy therefore it was nice to stay in a place where it was possible to relax and have a good nights sleep. The rooms are clean, sheets are changed often. There are lockers with safety boxes inside them. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the owner is a very good host. Would definitely stay here again.
2nd time I have stayed here, and was pleased again. We had to change our reservation, and the hostel was not only able to make this change, but did so without charging us for the first day’s stay. The location is just 3 blocks from where the bus station is & a 30 second walk from the beach. The sheets and towels were changed daily & never noticed that our things had been touched or modified. We enjoyed the rooftop patio! Wifi & hot showers were spotty but that's normal in Ecuador. Recommend!
