+ Well located in center of town + friendly staff with very good recommendations (eg finding good food) - 4 bed dorm hardly big enough for 2 people - breakfast: a farce! 2 almost black toasted pieces of bread, approximately 4 mm thick; served along with half a cup of awful instant coffee and half a scrambled egg :(

I enjoyed my stay here, met really nice people, breakfast is nice and the room wasn't too noisy considering that they're located at the party street. Claudio at the bar was amazing and his piñas coladas are the best! Nice shower, the room smells a bit mouldy but I didn't care. There is a common kitchen but is small and...

Chicas do not stay at this hostal alone, the male workers are not respectful. The worst hostal experience I have had in my life. Also the Cocina is very basic, communal areas lacking... In short this hostal sucks compared to the many other options of the same price.

FIRST IMPRESSION: Cheap price for a triple ($7 each) with a great balcony and hammocks. STAFF: The guy who checked us in completely ruined this stay for me. He was sexually inappropriate, despite my boyfriend being with me and kept insiting that he took a photo of me and him together. When we checked out, I told him we were...

Arrived in Montañita on Dec 26, and went in person to pay upfront for a private room for the two of us for the hardest dates to book, Dec 30-Jan 2. The prices were jacked up to $43/nt total for the one room, but this is common practice. We watched the main front desk guy update the reservations book and...
