Property Description

The greatest B & B Surf - Backpacker independently owned hostel in Montanita. We offer a great breakfast buffet incl. coffee and tea ( all day ) ; local fruits and different kind of freshly baked bread rolls every day from 8:30 am to 10:30 amThe house started off as a beach house. You can bring your own booze to the hostel and enjoy it with a nice sea view from the roof-top. Six from Eight rooms have a balcony and most of them have an ocean view. You can listen to the ocean the whole day and night and relax or sleep with the whisper of the incoming waves.

Later on, the owner Jorge decided to rebuild it as a hostel as a consequence of a beautiful love story. Jorge was traveling the world as well, so he understands the needs of his hostel guests. The doors finally opened in 2011. Therefore, over the past years, we have learned how to operate our hostel with each new experience from our guests from all over the world. We could adapt our service perfectly to the needs of our travelers. The hostel is strategically located in a quiet, safe neighborhood, close to the town's main strip (so perfect for a fun night out) and just a few meters from the ocean. Here you can regain your energy after a long travel period or a party night. Esperanto offers you the best ocean view on the most comfortable rooftop terrace in town. We give you all the comforts and services that you as a traveler/backpacker may need, always aligned with our commitments to the environment.

All rooms have the same comfort: fans, mosquito nets, and safety boxes are available in every room. In total, there are just eight rooms which give the whole hostel a really familiar vibe: four private rooms and four dorms. The dorms are designed for a maximum of four people with a private bathroom assigned to each dorm. six rooms have a balcony and most of them have an ocean view. You can listen to the ocean the whole day and night and relax or sleep with the whisper of the incoming waves. Really nice hot water in all showers (non-electric). An electricity generator in case of a blackout. Our dorms have a locker and electric outlet INSIDE of every locker so you can leave your electric devices secured (bring your own padlock).

There are also communal benefits such as the kitchen, the TV lounge (you even can connect your own Netflix account with ChromeCast) incl. a DVD player (about 400+ movies you can choose from in case you are up for a chilled movie night), a perfect rooftop terrace, internet connection WIFI in all the rooms and the common areas. A green 70 m2 backyard including a painted mini-bar for a get-together, laughing, eating and having some jam sessions.

You can bring your own booze to the hostel and enjoy it with a nice view. Therefore, you can’t find it any cheaper in Montanita for a perfect night out.

We also offer a great breakfast buffet incl. coffee and tea ( all day); local fruits and different kind of freshly baked bread rolls every day from 8:30 am to 10:30 am. So, you always are full of energy for your new day, prepared for new adventures.

PRIVATE SPANISH CLASSES, would you like to improve your Spanish while staying at our hostel right next to the beach? We offer private one-on-one Spanish lessons at Esperanto Hostel and all our instructors are certified Spanish teachers with years of experience. Learn Spanish in the right environment 2 or 3 hours per day, while you still have the rest of the day to chill at the beach sipping on Caipirinhas! And we even offer discounted accommodation if you sign up for a Spanish course with us. Just ASK US about our packages for more information once you have made your reservation.

From the hostel, you can get very easily to amazing SURF SPOTS like Montanita beach, Olón beach or La Entrada. You will find waves for all different surf levels and it is the perfect way to get you started on the board as you have enough space in the waves and sandy beaches. In case you need a board or some surf lessons, we can recommend different places to go and great surf teachers. Just ask us at the reception.

    Really loved my time here. This place is absolute paradise. There are plenty of hammocks and deck chairs to sit in on the roof, where you can watch the sunset. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting. The staff are helpful and polite. The rooms are spacious, and have a good amount of storage for belongings. I couldn’t recommend Esperanto more highly as a place to stay, and I’ll be back here if I’m back in Montañita!

    This place is great. Right on the beach but a few streets down from the party streets so it's much quieter. Very close to everything. The staff speaks really good english and can give you the best advice on where to go. I found it very social even during the off season. The view from the top floor is great. There was always hot water for the showers and the breakfast in the morning was basic but good.

    Fabulous

    26 Nov 2018
    We had a lovely stay in this hostel which is about 2 mins from the beach and 3 mins from town. The dorms were comfy & clean, there were handy lockers & drawers for each bed. A bonus was having a balcony to hear the waves from. WiFi worked well, staff were very helpful & free breakfast was good with fruit, oats and pastries. Only downside was that our 4bed dorm's ensuite was out in the hall, & so was constantly used by staff & others in the hostel. Had to wait to use it a number of times.

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.
