We want to create ripples by encouraging local guides and producers, as well as by getting involved in different social and environmental projects taking place in the village or in its area.

We'll also provide our travelers with multiple activities on site or in the area (local tours, beach games, board games, dinner parties, etc.) but reading a book in a hammock with a beautiful view of the ocean, while sipping Ecuadorian coffee is also part of the experience!

    Had a great time at Onda Hostel! The beds are comfy and going to sleep at night with the sound of the waves a great plus! Good kitchen facilities, great breakfast options and attentive staff. Just 20 minutes away from Puerto Lopez and 30 from Montañita makes it a great in-between stop. Plenty to do around or simply relax in the many hammocks. The cat and dog are AWESOME. Helped me with buses and lost items, super helpful hosts!

    My favorite Hostel I’ve visited so far in my Ecuador travels! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. This is the place to be if you want to relax and forget about the the rest of the world around you. I could have stayed for months if not for other travel plans!

    Looking to escape from all the chaos and distractions from the city? This is the place to be! Very peaceful beach only a few steps away! The breakfast is amazing! You get three choices to choose from. And they make a very delicious omelet! Very friendly and helpful staff. Just a few minute taxi ride from all the attractions.

    This place is one of a kind, if you want chill you got it. Welcomed by the beautiful owners on arrival, they made us feel so welcomed. They have lockers, awesome facilities, good wifi, awesome volunteers (Rachel was so cool). Only 50m from the beach, where they have a great set up with hammocks and shade. Private rooms are second to none. Can’t wait to come back, best place I have stayed at in South America so far.

    One of the best hostels I ever stayed at. We stayed for Christmas and New year's eve and maribel and Mathew did so much stuff that made it feel like a home. Mathew and Maribel (the owners) may also be the best hostel owners I have ever met. Definitively a great place to spend loads of weeks at the beach, surfing, swimming, drinking and what not. All the facilities where also some of the best I have experienced in south America.

    This is one of those hostels where you end up extending and extending your stay, because you don't want to leave. The owners are so so sweet and helpful, and the volunteers are great! The breakfast is the tastiest and healthiest I've eaten in my four months of traveling, the banana pancakes and chia pudding is amazing. The patio has a beautiful view and everything is so clean and spacious. Every now and then there are initiatives, like yoga classes, which makes it easier to socialize.

    Fantastic hostel, one of the best ones we've stayed in in 7 months. The BEST breakfast by far! The staff/volunteers are great and very helpful people. The kitchen is big and well equipped. Beds are comfy. Bathroom situation is a little awkward and especially the sinks could be cleaner. Beautiful roof terrace and sun deck with lots of chill out areas. Fruit & veggie truck comes around. Activities and tides are on a board, surf board rental. Recommend and would definitely go back!

    Stay here if you're really looking to get away. Very tasty breakfast. My main complaint would be the horde of flies in the kitchen from the compost bin. Other than that, nice staff, delicious breakfast.
