    Very cool spot that has something for everyone. Included with your stay is a FREE bike rental and discounted surf board rentals. The staff works very hard to make sure you are comfortable.

    We loved the chill vibe at Kiwi! It is quiet and there are nice outdoor places to chill and not to mention you get amazing sunset views from their terrace! Overall the rooms were clean, have super comfy double beds and AC which is needed in Montañita! And the price is quite reasonable for what you get. The owner is very helpful and lets you know about activities at their sister hostel.

    A good choice. Laid back and away from the madness. However if you also want the opposite at times, you are welcome to use the facilities at their sister hostel, Hidden House. There were no lockers in the dorm rooms, but lockers were available in the reception area. There is free breakfast, but you need to make a reservation the day before, with an exact time. I was on time but my breakfast was served 45 minutes late. I did not go back after that first morning.

    The hostel - despite its friendly owner - seems to attract really strange guests and did not reflect the other ratings I read about this hostel at all. Very disappointing and sometimes even disgusting hostel-experience.

    Worst hostel experience ever! Staff were rude and unhelpful, rooms weren’t cleaned for the entire stay, clothing ruined in hostel laundry. by far the worst hostel experience I have ever had. requested laundry service and were told that it would be back later that night. Our laundry was finally returned over a day later than what we were initially told only to realise every piece of white clothing was turned green. When speaking to the manager about it he said it somehow our fault to be continu
