Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

The greatest B & B Surf - Backpacker independently owned hostel in Montanita. We offer a great breakfast buffet incl. coffee and tea ( all day ) ; local fruits and different kind of freshly baked bread rolls every day from 8:30 am to 10:30 amThe house started off as a beach house. You can bring your own booze to the hostel and enjoy it with a nice sea view from the roof-top. Six from Eight rooms have a balcony and most of them have an ocean view. You can listen to the ocean the whole day and night and relax or sleep with the whisper of the incoming waves.

Later on, the owner Jorge decided to rebuild it as a hostel as a consequence of a beautiful love story. Jorge was traveling the world as well, so he understands the needs of his hostel guests. The doors finally opened in 2011. Therefore, over the past years, we have learned how to operate our hostel with each new experience from our guests from all over the world. We could adapt our service perfectly to the needs of our travelers. The hostel is strategically located in a quiet, safe neighborhood, close to the town's main strip (so perfect for a fun night out) and just a few meters from the ocean. Here you can regain your energy after a long travel period or a party night. Esperanto offers you the best ocean view on the most comfortable rooftop terrace in town. We give you all the comforts and services that you as a traveler/backpacker may need, always aligned with our commitments to the environment.

All rooms have the same comfort: fans, mosquito nets, and safety boxes are available in every room. In total, there are just eight rooms which give the whole hostel a really familiar vibe: four private rooms and four dorms. The dorms are designed for a maximum of four people with a private bathroom assigned to each dorm. six rooms have a balcony and most of them have an ocean view. You can listen to the ocean the whole day and night and relax or sleep with the whisper of the incoming waves. Really nice hot water in all showers (non-electric). An electricity generator in case of a blackout. Our dorms have a locker and electric outlet INSIDE of every locker so you can leave your electric devices secured (bring your own padlock).

There are also communal benefits such as the kitchen, the TV lounge (you even can connect your own Netflix account with ChromeCast) incl. a DVD player (about 400+ movies you can choose from in case you are up for a chilled movie night), a perfect rooftop terrace, internet connection WIFI in all the rooms and the common areas. A green 70 m2 backyard including a painted mini-bar for a get-together, laughing, eating and having some jam sessions.

You can bring your own booze to the hostel and enjoy it with a nice view. Therefore, you can’t find it any cheaper in Montanita for a perfect night out.

We also offer a great breakfast buffet incl. coffee and tea ( all day); local fruits and different kind of freshly baked bread rolls every day from 8:30 am to 10:30 am. So, you always are full of energy for your new day, prepared for new adventures.

PRIVATE SPANISH CLASSES, would you like to improve your Spanish while staying at our hostel right next to the beach? We offer private one-on-one Spanish lessons at Esperanto Hostel and all our instructors are certified Spanish teachers with years of experience. Learn Spanish in the right environment 2 or 3 hours per day, while you still have the rest of the day to chill at the beach sipping on Caipirinhas! And we even offer discounted accommodation if you sign up for a Spanish course with us. Just ASK US about our packages for more information once you have made your reservation.

From the hostel, you can get very easily to amazing SURF SPOTS like Montanita beach, Olón beach or La Entrada. You will find waves for all different surf levels and it is the perfect way to get you started on the board as you have enough space in the waves and sandy beaches. In case you need a board or some surf lessons, we can recommend different places to go and great surf teachers. Just ask us at the reception.

    Dear rocke,carolina, pepe and rest of the esperanto crew Thank you so much for your hospitality! We felt at home immediately and everyone of the staff was so friendly,helpful and nice to talk to. We kept on booking one more night. So instead of staying 2 nights we stayed 5 nights. Rocke makes the best asado and lasagna! He helped us getting our busticket, organised surf lessons...the only thing we had to do was enjoy. That was not too hard in this beautiful place:)!

    We stayed at Esperanto for 6 days and we had an amazing time! The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the beds comfy and there are free lockers in the room! The location is really good, close to the center with bars, restaurants and shops, but far enough that it is quiet at night! :) Also 1 min to the beach! Still, the best part of our stay was the amazing staff! They are so so helpful, friendly and a lot of fun! Special thanks to Rocke, David, Carolina and nightguard Jose! Big hugs, Felicia & Mayra

    The staff was really friendly and willing to help us with a lot of information. The owner even showed us the best places in town. We stayed in the new 6 persons apartment which was nice, clean and spatial.

    I had an amazing stay at Esperanto. Though I planned to stay just a night or two I ended up spending five nights there because of the great accomodation, amazingly friendly and helpfull staff and really nice evenings on the roof terrace with fellow guests and the owner and employers. Definitely one of the better places I stayed during my six weeks in Latin America.

    This place is awesome! The price is very good aswell as the hospitality. The staff is really kind and welcoming. They are willing to answer every question you have. Toilets are clean, they replace the sheets and stuff like toiletpaper. The terrace is really good for meeting people and the people who work here know where the best places are to party. The hostel is also good for a little alone time when you are tired. The hostel is really easy to find from the place where the busses stop. 10 /10.

    Great hostel to stay in. It is cosy and the people are friendly. You can drink there and even get your own drinks. They don't really have a bar but you can buy some beers at the reception IPA, darker beer and regular beer. Because there is no bar people don't really drink or party there. People do however chill, go surfing and later in the evening go to the center to party or have dinner. Great hostel to stay in and have a good time in Montanita!

    In het hostel is het erg vochtig, hierdoor worden alle kleren in je backpack vochtig. Over het matras zit een plastic laag. Er is niet echt een leuke sfeer is het hostel. Wel een goede locatie.
