Property Description

Our beautiful bamboo-made guest house offers tranquility and a sweet homely vibe in the most famous party/surf town in Ecuador. If you're looking for a perfect balance between partying in the center while being able to relax and sleep well then you found the right place. We guarantee you that you won't find safer, cozier, cleaner and friendlier accommodation in the whole of Montanita.

El Cielo is located in a charming and peaceful neighborhood of El Tigrillo, the last remaining bit of Montanita's countryside, very different from the commercial, touristy center. Here you can relax, fall asleep to the sound of crickets, wake up to the sound of birds and enjoy the omnipresent greenery.

The beach and downtown area are around 10 minutes walking distance.

There is hot water and excellent WIFI in the whole property. All the windows have mosquito nets which provide great mosquito protection. Large, well-equipped, clean kitchen will enable you to prepare your favourite food. Our beautiful bamboo terrace with a library, seating area and hammocks is a perfect spot to read, realx, do yoga and bird-watch! Theres another lounge area and even more hammocks on the ground floor and finally, there is a pool for our guests to enjoy.

We provide daily housekeeping service free of charge to ensure that our hostel meets the highest cleanliness standards.

We leave you complete freedom and privacy but at the same time, we can be at your disposal and help you with anything you need at any time, our house is only meters away from the guesthouse. We provide up-to-date information about Montanita and all its attractions, we offer discounts on tours and diving courses and we help organize exceptionally cheap, high-quality private Spanish classes, the best surfing classes and amazing 'on the budget' Galapagos tours.

What makes us unique is our serene, green, extra safe location that provides perfect conditions for a good nights rest and our individual attitude towards the guests- we are truly committed to making your stay here in Montanita as pleasant and flawless as possible.

    I had an amazing birthday at this hostel! Monika and Daniel were super welcoming and attentive, and even upgraded our room as a birthday treat. The hostel is the perfect place to stay in Montañita, close enough to town that you can enjoy the nightlife but far enough that you can sleep and relax. They also give you loads of recommendations for food and activities which is really helpful. Thank you Monika and Daniel! :)

    I’ve been to 3 hostels in montanita and this was by far the one I preferred. It was really like feeling at home, both Daniel & Monika - the owners - were really caring and making sure you have the best stay possible! It was quite & clean, and a short walk to the town, that will actually allow you to enjoy your quite evenings. Just perfect!

    Having been traveling South America for three months I was so happy to find somewhere like el Cielo. This is a place you’ll struggle to leave. Being a bit out of town, 5-10 minutes from the Main Street, is a blessing. You can enjoy the beach, surf, and partying (if you want) then fall into a hammock and enjoy the peacefulness of the beautiful settings. They have free bikes in case you need to pop to the shops too! Both the dorms and private rooms are the best value for money I’ve encountered.

    I had a wonderful stay at El Cielo! It was like a second home for me during my time in Montanita and was the best hostel I stayed at during my travels. The hostel is beautifully clean and has a relaxed and homely atmosphere. Monika and Daniel are the most polite, kind, helpful and diligent hosts I have ever met. If I hadn’t stayed at El Cielo I would have truly missed out and it wouldn’t have been the same experience. Thank you Monika and Daniel for everything- hasta la proxima vez!

    Our stay was fantastic, we spent three nights here; very clean room, great sleep, great hospitality and was a pleasure to meet Daniel and his family. They were able to help with any query and good to hang out with. Location wise, it was quick and easy to walk to the centre of Montanita but being a bit further a way, was very relaxing.

    If I could score this hostel more than 10/10 I would, Monika and Daniel are amazing hosts and do everything they can to make you feel right at home. We ended up extending our 3 night stay to 9, we really didn’t want to leave. Definitely going back! If you don’t stay here when going to montanita you are truely wasting your time. Thank you guys for everything!

    I had a wonderful stay at Daniel’s and Monika’s (and 3 year old leticia’s) El Cielo hostal. signed up for 3 days but stayed a week. Kind, attentive, knowledgeable hosts. Used their bike (however it's only a short 8 minute walk to town). Perfect distance from town to give you a peaceful night’s rest. two great hammock lounging areas and a beautiful tropical garden around the house. spacious kitchen and hot showers. June-Aug is mating season on Isla de La Plata (highlight of my trip to Ecuador)

    Cute little spot away from town. Smaller hostel so perhaps a little more difficult to meet people, but very relaxing. Properly was very clean and well kept. Daniel, one of the owners was extremely welcoming and makes an amazing breakfast. Beds were super comfortable. Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for something lower key and away from the craziness of the town!

    Nice to be about out of town. It is like staying at someone's house which is cute but also means you hear the odd argument which isna little awkward. Also we didn't get a hot shower the five nights we stayed but apparently this was fixed the day we left.
