I liked the Guacamayo hostel a lot! The people were friendly, the room was basic, but clean, and the food in the restaurant was great. The atmosphere was also good, but the location was the best. It's located right on the beach, so you can go for a swim or a surf lesson right outside the hostel. Also great is that it is very quiet at night, because you are not in the centre of the city, but at the beach!
We were here in the off-season so it wasn't very busy but we spend 5 nice days here. The location is great, close enough to the center of Montanita to be convenient and far away enough to be away from the noise. The hostel has a nice bar at the beach and some covered beach-beds which the owners were kind enough to let us use for free as no-one else was using them. WiFi connection was very good and even reached the beach where we were spending most of our time. We had a double room which wasn't very large but we weren't spending a lot of time there anyway and the bed was good. A few small downsides were that the shared shower was warm but it took a long time for it to warm up and it wasn't more than a trickle, also the smell at the hostel ground was a bit bad at times which we thought might be due to clogged drainage and the rains that occurred when we were there. Given that the price of the hostel was very low this hostel however offered very good value for money.
relax place with beer, right on north end of the beach. right on the beach. part from no local. I give place 10 out 10 for price and everything. best in monatina. good location. ok security, friendly stuff if u canfind them. room is hot, but why would u spend time in rooms lol. wifi is exellent. for the price. its the best hostel I been in ecuador. only work allow me to have browny. hahahaha
Had an amazing private room on top floor with spectacular view of the ocean. Friendly staff and laid back atmosphere. Awesome to sit on the beach in one of the beds having drinks and watching the sunset! Very reasonable price, 25 per night, way less then we paid staying in town.
