Property Description

The greatest B & B Surf - Backpacker independently owned hostel in Montanita.
We offer a great FREE breakfast every day incl. good coffee, tea, local fruits, bread, and free filtered water ( all day), from 8:30 am. to 10:30 am. You can bring your own booze to the hostel and enjoy it with a nice sea view from the rooftop. Six of Eight rooms have a balcony and most of them have somehow a bit of an ocean view if you find the right spot on the balcony. You can listen to the ocean the whole day and night and relax or sleep with the whisper of the incoming waves.

All rooms have the same comfort: fans, mosquito nets ( asked at reception ) , and lockers (bring your own padlock). In total, there are just eight rooms which gives the whole hostel a really familiar vibe: three private rooms and five dorms. Four dorms are designed for a maximum of four people with a private bathroom assigned to each dorm ( en-suite and non-en-suite) and we have an extra dorm for six people with a private bathroom non-en-suite a bit cheaper. six rooms have a balcony and most of them have somehow a bit of an ocean view if you find the right spot on the balcony. You can listen to the ocean the whole day and night and relax or sleep with the whisper of the incoming waves. Really nice hot water in all showers (non-electric). An electricity generator in case of a blackout. Our dorms have a locker and electric outlet INSIDE of every locker so you can leave your electric devices secured.

PRIVATE SPANISH CLASSES, would you like to improve your Spanish while staying at our hostel right next to the beach? We offer private one-on-one Spanish lessons at Esperanto Hostel and all our instructors are certified Spanish teachers with years of experience. Learn Spanish in the right environment for 2 or 3 hours per day, with a flexible schedule that you can agree on with our teachers, while you still have the rest of the day to chill at the beach sipping on Caipirinhas! this is a promo ONLY for our guests, therefore, classes will be in the hostel

There are also communal benefits such as the kitchen, the TV lounge (you even can connect your own Netflix account ) incl., including a perfect rooftop terrace, internet connection WIFI in all the rooms, and the common areas. A green 70 m2 backyard including a painted mini-bar for a get-together, laughing, eating, and having some jam sessions.

Feel free to bring your own booze to the hostel and enjoy it with a nice view. We sell beers and remember we provide free filtered water. We just do not want to chase every single dollar and obligate to buy beers here, =) so, you can find any cheaper place in Montanita for a perfect night out.


From the hostel, you can get very easily to amazing SURF SPOTS. You will find waves for all different surf levels and it is the perfect way to get you started on the board as you have enough space in the waves and sandy beaches. In case you need a board or some surf lessons, we can recommend different places to go and great surf teachers. Just ask us at reception.

The house started off as a beach house. Later on, the owner Jorge decided to rebuild it as a hostel as a consequence of a beautiful love story. Jorge was traveling the world as well, so he understands the needs of his hostel guests. The doors finally opened in 2011. Therefore, over the past years, we have learned how to operate our hostel with each new experience from our guests from all over the world. We could adapt our service perfectly to the needs of our travelers. The hostel is strategically located in a quiet, safe neighborhood, close to the town's main strip (so perfect for a fun night out) and just a few meters from the ocean. Here you can regain your energy after a long travel period or a party night. Esperanto offers you the best ocean view on the most comfortable rooftop terrace in town. We give you all the comforts and services that you as a traveler/backpacker may need, always aligned with our commitments to the environment.



We are proud to say that our hostel is totally unique. We guarantee that Montanita and its wonders along with our list of amenities and friendly staff will make it hard for you to leave!

Please note: Rates are non-refundable so that means the hostel has the right to ask if the hostel decides on the payment in advance in order to really secure a place in the hostel but there is the possibility of changing to another date for a one-time. it could apply different costs if the rate is higher (for example: change a low season date to new years eve date)

Cancellation Policy: cancellations and no-shows will be charged 100 % of the amount, in non-refundable rates

Cash is accepted as preference payment upon arrival in the case exits a balance, remember in non-refundable rates, the hostel is entitled to ask for the payment in advance to really secure your place in the hostel

Maybe, (it would be our choice) We could accept payment with the credit cards we use Tab Travel app or PayPal, (6 % extra fee cost transaction) , we do not have a P.o.S device at the hostel

Check-in time & Check-out time: 12 pm check-in. 3 pm check out

Taxes have not included a 12% vat

Age restriction: We only accept guests aged 18 to 50 years old. I mean everybody is welcome, but it is important to keep in mind this is a HOSTEL for backpackers, not a 3-4 star hotel, it is clean and pretty with its simplicity =)

Please note this building has some stairs connecting four floors (which might not be suitable for some travelers). Please consider your own limitations. Although we are not intended to be a party hostel, our guests like to stay out late and interact with each other, as it's quite a social environment. Please keep this in mind (and other facts as we are a backpacker hostel) before making your booking, in order to avoid any disappointment.

Please note each room has its own PRIVATE BATHROOM. Some PRIVATE BATHROOMS are NOT ENSUITE in some shared DORMS. Private bathrooms are ensuite in private rooms.

Esperanto was great! I had just come from a hostel where I was the only guest, and it was not the best stay. Esperanto was so much better. The location is great, close enough to activities but just far enough away that it's not super loud. Jorge, the owner, is absolutely amazing. He's very easy to get along with, encourages socializing, and has plenty of recommendations. I made some great friends here, and I'd certainly stay again.

We had a great stay at Esperanto. The roof top was excellent to chill out drink a beer and watch the waves. Everything was easily accessible. They even helped us get to Isla la Plata for a day tour. The rooms were comfy and the owner was a pleasure to chat with. if we're ever back we will definitely stay again.
