“cozy place at the beach”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

we stayed 2 nights in a double room with private bathroom.

+ fantastic balcony with nice view on the beach/sea
+ hammocks on the balcony
+ hot water with nice pressure
+ well situated in a calm area, directly at the beach, 5' walk to the "party center"
+ immediate reply to email request (we wished to book the second night...)
+ good breakfast
+ nice girl at the reception helped us with a call to a spanish speaking fisherman (since our spanish is too bad)
+ free wifi in the common areas

what could be improved in our view:
- provide wifi in the room
- be more friendly at check in and assist guest with special request (this was the guy at the reception, when we arrived)
- provide breakfast earlier than 9 am (eg at 8 am)
- remove the strange smell in the bathroom/toilet

our conclusion: recommended, we would stay here again

after arriving in montanita and staying in a very costly and uninviting hostal,i was just walking down the beach and found what i consider heaven.this hostal has all the ambiance and peacefullness you could possibly ask for.the owner and his staff go all out on making your stay a very memorable one.and the price was less than the one prior to it.this gets 5 stars hands down

Room Tip: if in montanita this little slice of heaven is a must to be checked into

My son and I had a wonderful stay at the Hostal Kundalini along with another 40-50 Christian Surfers. The staff went out of their way to take care of us. The breakfast was fresh and wonderful. The grounds made for a relaxing time. We were just far enough from the central part of the town that we didn't hear the late night music. Wonderful location and easy to find. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Pleasant place to spend the night, right on a beach that is great for body surfing. We didn't get in to Montanita until close to 3 am, but the night guard who patrols the property was able to let us into our room. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, the room was nice, and we were graciously accommodated by the entire staff.

This place was actually quite good. The rooms were comfortable and whilst there was a little bit of noise coming from a nearby party, the hostel is well away from the main part of the town where all the real noise is. Good internet connections and a very nice hot and powerful shower. Hammocks on the porch are very welcome and the staff were friendly and helpful.
The one thing that was not so good was that our room did smell a bit musty, particularly the bathroom.

Incredible experience. WE WILL BE BACK! Located right on the Pacific Ocean. Just a short walk on the beach gets you into Montanita. Silvia and her staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms kept clean. Quiet location yet just steps away from the action. Breakfast and 12% tax included in daily rate. Fell asleep in one of the hammocks one night. Ocean sounds incredible. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Definitely a room facing the ocean would be preferable.

It´s a beautiful hostel, we really liked the room, it´s just in front of the ocean. A really good choice for couples :) it comes with a free breakfast, and is really quiet in the night but near front the parties, just need to walk a couple of blocks. Not really recommended for party guys, or groups that what to drink a lot better choose a hostal in downtown for that experience ;)

Room Tip: Choose back rooms are more private and also cheaper and I liked more than the rooms with view.
