A 3 minute walk along the beach from downtown, this could be by far the best mid-priced lodging in Montanita. The rooms are basic but serve the purpose and you have them hammocks to relax outside. The included breakfast has fresh fruit, fresh natural juice, scrambled eggs, bread and jam.

Note, it;s not the hotel's fault but electricity can be sporadic in Montanita - be prepared.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the sea view rooms - we did not but it was still fine.

My friends and I have been to this hostel three times now. We love the relaxing environment at the hostel and the perfect distance to access the main streets and the ocean. The breakfast included with the stay was a good portion and fresh. The rooms are a good size and are comfortable. I definitely recommend staying at Kundalini!

As other reviews have stated, it's the perfect oasis setting just metres from the sands and ocean.
The staff did a great job of keepi g the room and communal areas clean and tidy - discreet and effective. A quality freshly prepared breakfast while watching the morning surfers was a welcome start to the day.

Beautiful basic hotel just steps from the ocean. Nice and quiet away from the pounding music of downtown montanita. Friendly staff and some have English. Rooms are basic but generally clean - had to kill several spiders.

This hostal has a great location - right on the beach, and about a 3 minute walk to "downtown" Montañita. We were there in winter, so it was very quiet, though there were plenty if other guests. The rooms are basic but pretty clean, and each room has hammocks outside the door, which is where we spent most of our time. Breakfast is included and good - some of the best coffee we had during our month-long travels through the country. We had some trouble with mosquitos our first night, and though the hostal had no mosquito nets, they did respond by burning mosquito repellant, which was a big help. All in all, a good value compared to other hotels in the area. One note - if you are planning to use the coupon available through this site, it must be printed out. I had only an electronic copy and it was not permitted.

Shortly after arriving in Montañita - having found our destination, the Hostal Kundalini.....I already felt sad about having to leave again soon. My partner James and I have been cycling down the coast of Ecuador and being greeted with the warmth as if we were family members was something I didn't expect, nor did I think this place would be such a sanctuary. I had been reading about Montañita, expecting a party town and that was fine, but finding a place so close to downtown and so peaceful and spiritual I did not expect. The warm shower and the room were paradise in every aspect - clean and secure, we slept like babies. Spending two days was not enough, but it was the best two days we had in a long time. The staff was super friendly and funny and it felt like they all had our best interest in mind.
Breakfast right next to the beach....fast internet.....hammocks everywhere......sweet garden......
We were inspired to spontaneously practice some yoga - we actually stretched our sore bodies for an hour and a half on the inviting lawn underneath the palm trees to the view and the sound of the ocean...ahhhhhhh
Thank you Hostal Kundalini, you gave us a heaven to restore our physical and mental capacity!!!!
In deep gratitude,
Margit and James.
