Property Description

In the Hostel 100% security, on the beach 100% freedom.


We are 25 minutes north of Montañita and 15 minutes south of Puerto López on the beach.

Our hostel is located right on the beach with panoramic sea views and direct access to the ocean.

We are beside Machalilla National Park. This paradise is a perfect starting point for many outdoors activities and adventures.

This is a great surf spot for beginners and advanced surfers. If you would like to learn, we offer surf lessons for beginners in a friendly and quiet environment.

You can cook and share a dinner, organize a barbecue, relax in the pool and drink a cold beer on our high level terrace enjoying a magical sunset.

After an adventure, surfing or a beach day, relax or join us for a “Party Trip” to Montañita or a local party in one of our neighboring towns! View House Rules

    Viejamar is a place where you are very happy to be there and sad to leave. I booked 2 nights and stayed 2 weeks. The place rodrigo has put up is magical, really a paradise right in the beach. It has a bar, hot showers, ac, good breakfast, lockers, comfortable beds, a swimming pool, surf boards, the nicest common areas, kitchen, sunsets from the balcony, a bonfire spot, great volunteers and the best vibes. Thank you all very much for everything. Will come back for sure and I recommend it 200%.

    I love this place. Stayed for 3 nights, totally highlights of my trip. Due to low season, there're not many guests there when I was staying, but the entire atmosphere was unbeatable. Its quiet and peaceful. I was able to learn how to surf. The hostel is literally right by the beach, you can watch the sunset & sunrise and take quick walk to the beach. It's very easy to hop on the bus to other towns. The staff is super friendly (Sebastian!) and they prepare free breakfast for you.

    Beautiful hostel, location is amazing. The hostel is run by volunteers who are a bit too much into their “staff only policy” which is sad because we didn’t feel very welcomed

    Very Good

    Enjoyed our stay here! Very quiet relaxing hostel, we stayed for 6 days. Most of the time we relaxed by the sea or by the pool. Good places to visit nearby, los frailes beach was great! We also did the Isla De La Plata tour which was 100% worth it! So much to see. However we felt that the staff used the kitchen to much, there was never really enough space to cook. And they always seemed to be cooking something complex that took a long time. The room was okay and it had AC, big +. Recommend

    Wonderful volunteers running the place. Very nice atmosphere, being included in the family immediately. Only negative part is that the room and bathroom is very mouldy
