We liked this hostal and it was by far a great mid ranged value for the dump of a town Montanita. Small bedrooms, but that's all you really need. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Hammock on your balony. We faced a pathway so it wasn't the best view but there still was a huge flower bush that did add something pretty...

We stayed here in October and we will return for sure ! The check in process was easy and the young lady at the desk (Carla) couldn't have been nicer ! She told us of places to eat and helped us with where a pharmacy was, even taking us there on her day off when we couldn't find it !...

Pros:Great view, Quiet location 5 minutes from the main road, free Breakfeast and private Cabanas on the beach. C*ns: People that say that its good quality/price (40$-80$ per night)are definitely north americans... Other place range from 10$-40$ a night , some of them offer more options in the room and a better service from the employees. All you can hear...

Great property right on the beach. Beautiful green space. A range of rooms, from basic to more elegant. Nice breakfast included in the rate. Very friendly staff. I also think its the perfect location--an easy walk into the main part of town but just far enough off the main drag that you can actually sleep peacefully at night. We've stayed...

Wonderful Setting! View of the ocean, great beach, great waves! Clean rooms, warm showers. Hidden access to beach so no one can randomly just wonder in off the beach into your resort. Breakfast was really really good and was next to the beach with great views. Hammocks always a winner! They also had him mocks and cool chairs on their...

I just stayed a few days at Kundalini and I would definitely recommend the place to anyone who wants to visit Montañita. The hotel looks amazing, the room was clean and cosy. And the best of all was the kindness of the staff. An absolute 10 to all of them. They were all very kind and helpful. The hotel is...

Great location right on the beach! A short walk to the town but far enough that it's quiet and peaceful at night when things get crazy. Great breakfast and clean rooms. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Incredible place, no frills yet beautiful and clean, hippie and with surf and yoga vibe. Private hammocks outside each bedroom and prime location. Quieter that staying right downtown Montañita just 3 min walk (quarter mile) from the bus station. The staff is great, breakfast is good and you can actually sleep here. Restful and recharging stay. Free coffee and tea....

We had a great time staying at this hotel. The rooms were cleaned everyday and the premises were very clean too. They have covered beach furniture and hammocks that they clean regularly. The staff does its best to ensure that you enjoy your stay and ask for recommendations to improve your visit while you are there. They want you to...

Such a fantastic place to stay. Excellent location on the beach, secure and the room was lovely and clean and well serviced. Breakfast was delicious and I was lucky enough to have a free personal yoga session on the Saturday afternoon which was great. The staff are friendly and nice.
