Property Description

Hidden House is now named 13 of the top 20 surf hostels in the world, and the only one in Ecuador, by Hostelworld, you can be sure there is ONLY 1 place to stay in Montañita!

With huge open spaces and many communal areas, you´ll be partying and chilling with people from all over the world! We have a massive garden with hammocks, 2 slack lines and bbq area, bar/reception where we offer the cheapest large beers in Montanita, and where the party really gets started when we´re having an open bar. Don't miss out on our famous Happy Nights from 6-01am every night with 3x$6 on Cuba Libres and Screwdrivers! And for the hard mornings after, we have a TV area fit with a 60' TV, Netflix, cable and a PS4 with FIFA 18!

What's more, is that all our rooms come with new mattresses, fans, and mosquito nets! For a small deposit we also include towels, soap and shampoo free of charge! Our private ensuite bathrooms also come with A/C!

No hostel would be complete without a communal kitchen, so come cook in ours! Fully equipped with oven, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, and blender for all your needs. To top all of this off, we have 24/7 reception with music, manned by our friendly staff and volunteers who are always looking forward to get to know you.

From Hidden House you can book activities like surf lessons for $20 x 3 hours, $10 full day board rentals, whale watching tour, hiking tour in the mountains, scuba diving and more. Montañita is an amazing destination for nature enthusiasts.

We are located just 2 blocks away from the beach and 2 minutes from the center, so you´ll be close enough to everything, but far enough that you´ll sleep like a baby a night. Being by the Ruta del Sol also means that if you ever want take a bus to see one of the many beautiful beaches Ecuador has, all you need to do is take the bus from your doorstep.

המקום חמוד, אבל עקצו אותי בכמה דולרים במחיר בלי תירוץ אמיתי, תוך כדי שימוש בהצדקה של "מיסים נוספים" למרות, שהזמנתי את הלילות הנותרים בקבלה ולא באפליקציה. לא כל הצוות ידידותי. קצת מאכזב

The price, atmosphere and staff were great but the hostel is very dirty, the bathrooms kitchen and rooms haven’t been cleaned in a very long time. There is also woodworm in the ceilings which means bits of wood drop onto the mosquito nets

The mattress in our double bed private was covered in mould. It was extremely humid in our room and every time someone from a dorm room above when to the toilet the pipes smelt terrible in our room. We rarely had hot water. We stayed three nights and the room was never cleaned or provided fresh towels. The hostel has a great party vibe but it does feel very insecure when they open up to the public. Make sure you lock your things away as the place gets very busy
