    Nico, “the boss” was the best. Great place to enjoy a weekend of wild party with people from all over the world. If you are traveling solo is the place to stay in Montañita.

    Nico is amazing owner and host! It’s a great laidback vibe. Beds are nice and atmosphere is great. The kitchen has everything you need. The volunteers are amazing and willing to help you in town. So many friendly people. Great place for people wanting to not to hear music till 8am. The terrace is a great place to hang and relax. They don’t do the breakfast anymore because they decreased the price so people can enjoy this place without worrying about pinching dollars. Amazing hostel!!

    Very Good

    My stay here was ok. I came when it was raining a lot in town which didn't help because the social area was turned into a bit of a mud puddle. Considering the price the place is decent but social area and kitchen pretty small. Facilities I would say aren't great but I guess you get what you pay for. Atmosphere and location were decent. I wouldn't stay again.
