Very nice hostel, highly recommended. Very close to the beach, and a good balance of fun party times, but also ensuring the hostel was quiet after 12. It has a really nice roof terrace with hammocks and a great view of the sea. Staff are also very friendly.

Only stayed 1 night but had a great time! Nice, clean rooms and amazing views on the top terrace of the beach while laying in the hammocks. Staff were extremely helpful when I asked for assistance to get to where I needed to go next. Had a great time here!

So happy I stayed here. Really chilled, family like atmosphere. From a hammock at the rooftop terrace you can check the waves if you feel like surfing. The guys working there, a bartender and a chef - great combo- prepared a delicious bbq the final night we stayed there. Thanks again Casper and Alonso!

We stayed here for just one night but found the place clean and tidy, with a cool terrace on the top floor to relax on. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The location is great, close to the bars and clubs but far enough away that the noise isn't an issue

I highly recommend this hostel. Although it just a 2 min walk away from party center of Montañita it's a quiet place where you can get some quality sleep. Also it's less then a minute walk away from the beach. So perfect location. The dorm, bathroom and showers are clean. You have a kitchen and a terrace on the third...

I only have good things to say about Esperanto. I spent 14 days at Esperanto and felt no need to go anywhere else! The people that run the place provide a warm and welcoming environment and satisfy every one of your needs. We participated in group meals and could not help but constantly feel at home. Perfect place to set...

I had a wonderful time staying at this hostel! The rooms were clean and all have balconies great for hanging bathing suits out to dry and enjoying the breeze. The upstairs terrace was a fun spot to watch the sunsets, meet other travelers, lounge in a hammock and/or pre-game with people before heading out. The hostal is in a great...
