We stayed at another "hotel" and had a horrible experience. Our room here was clean, comfortable and everything we were looking for! Close to the beach, quiet, friendly staff and it was in our budget.

Cool place. Right next to beach. Staff are really friendly. Short walk to the town as well. Quieter than closer to town. Great food as well. Not the cheapest but very decent. Very interesting bus trip from Guayaquil bus station through the the countryside. Brief glimpses of real life in Ecuador for the majority. Really feel in different culture after...

We stayed in here based on some recommendations and enjoyed every minute in here. The breakfast was simply delicious, the staff was very attentive and kind. There is a front view of the ocean and is placed on a very calm sector, away from all the craziness of Montañita, that's one of the things we enjoyed the most. One thing...

We've stayed for 4 nights in hotel Kundalini. The accommodation is located at the beach. We had a room with sea-view, which was perfect! The bed- and badroom were very clean. You have wifi acces, there is a safe and a hammock on the balcony. The breakfast was good. You can choose 3 different breakfast menus and you can pick...

I traveled with my eldest son and found this hostel. The hostel is located right on the beach in a quiet area about 10 minutes walk from the town center. The room was spacious with a large shower and a hammock outside. TV was not in the room but for us it just did not miss. Breakfast was surprisingly good....

Stayed here while traveling through Peru and Ecuador. This was my first experience in a "hostel" and it was a good one. Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was amazing! There were 3 options to choose from and I think we tried all three. It is located close to the town and direct access to the beach....

I stayed in the best room in the hostal, and it was terrible!!! My partner and I travel all the time and we believe that booking in the most expensive hotel in Montanita will give us a nice experience for our honeymoon, but that didnt happen. We stayed in cheaper hotels with better attention and nicer infrastructure and decoration. We...

Hoste Kundalini has a number of positive aspects that merit mentioning. First is it's location with respect to the town of Montanita. It has a beautiful beach frontage some 5 minute walk north of the town. If you like to be assured you will not be disturbed by the nigh time young spirt fun of Montanita, you have it at...
