The best hostel we've been so far. Great people, great vibe and amazing food. The rooms are spacious and clean. An amazing place to relax and meet new people. We left and had to come back because we missed it soo much. Would stay here for soooo much longer

The views from this hostel are stunning, its right on the beach and a lovely 20 min walk to the centre of Montainita. We had a private room and bathroom which was clean and comfortable. There is a large pool, but it was out of action when we were there. What let this hostel down is that it was run...

To be honest my friend and I were a bit too old for this place and I should've done a bit more research before booking. After the initial shock of seeing all the youngsters staying here we managed to get used to it mainly thanks to the Euros that were on at the same time - football gets most people...

There's something special about this place and once you're there, you feel it! The people, the location, the parties and just the whole experience was one I will never forget! James, Ana and Pablo are all amazing and made my stay perfect. 100% recommend this place.

Perfect distance from town so you arent engulfed by cocktails and nightlife 24/7. The private cabins were lovely and the dorms were clean and quiet. The owners James and Anna are beautiful people who contributed to the shortening of my lifespan. Exceptionally cheap too!

Kamala was such an amazing experience. The owners James & Anna were very welcoming and accommodating. My stay was very special and I couldn't be more grateful for an experience of a lifetime. The hostel is clean/comfortable & Anna's cooking is the best in the world ! Oh & try the big banana cocktail (very addicting )!

Such an awesome spot to get away from the craziness of the city. Great price, great people (Spanish and very fluent English speakers), and perfect location. This hostel is right on the beach! We were able to surf, use their bar, and speak to English speakers to find fun things to do in the area. We felt right at home...

The hostel is truly a perfect retreat from the craziness of Montanita. Here backpackers can enjoy a nice and quiet atmosphere, recharge their batteries from traveling and meet new friends. Kamala Hosteria is owned and run by two fun-loving brothers, who make sure their guests never have a dull moment. ... more   less
