Reviewed 19 February 2014

This is a beautiful space and concept. We only stayed two nights in the bungalow, but it´s a really lovely choice for guests that enjoy rusiticty and shared spaces. The view is spectacular. There is very little running water, which we did not mind due to the fact we spent most of our time at the beach. But any negative reviews stem from someone not anticipating the rusticity. It´s a bit of a walk from town, on a steep hill, so do keep that in min

My boyfriend and I had travelled 18 hours to get here and arrived late and the owner could not even get out of bed for us and just shouted things at us from her bedroom.. The facilities weren't great and it was very removed from everything. We decided to find a new place first thing is the morning. We walked down to the beach and found a cheap and lovely hostel literally on the beach, away from the centre of montanita so it was quiet at night. It was the perfect place to relax and being on the beach made our stay 100 times better. We are not fussy with accommodation as we are both just students but our experience at Punto verde was not good. We didn't feel welcome or wanted. Would never recommend to anyone.

This was the perfect place to meet like minded travelers and have space to relax. It's a small walk to town, but you can do that along the beautiful beach to get into the heart of everything. Joos will cook you a great breakfast every day and her very cheap home cooked dinners are awesome too. Wish I could have spent longer at this hostel, it really is a special place to have been a part of. Can't wait to one day come back!

Punto Verde is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in!
The dorms have a view of the ocean & perfect wifi.
The owner is friendly and the whole place is environmentally friendly! (Which is a huge plus in my book!).
Situated a short walk out of town you pass many other hostels on the way. Punto Verde is definitely worth the wait!

This place is outstanding in Montañita! Just a few minutes walk from the beach and away from the sometimes noisy village of Montañita, this is an oasis overlooking the ocean with a very familiar atmosphere. The breakfast is great and the beds are absolutely comfortable and Joos, the owner of this place is a perfect host and makes you feel home from the very first moment. Chatting with her with a cool Beer on the balcony or at the fireplace is broaden your horizon! The environmental protection is something really taking care of at this place. From sensible water use to composting the organic garbage. So if you're looking for a place not alike most of the Hostels and Hotels in Montañia, this is the place to stay and all this for an absolute unbeatable price!

This place has an amazing view and the atmosphere is ideal for those wanting to get out of the built-up town environment. The staff in particular made my stay even better. The food they cooked was delicious and their friendly service made the place even more hospitable. This place is not to be missed if you are in Montanita.

The dorm is very spacious and the view from the balcony is amazing. You get to see the surf break from there and you can decided if you want to surf it or not. Joos (the owner) is very hospitable and very friendly. I was supposed to be there for 2 nights and stayed for 12. If you are looking for a quieter option in Montanita, away from the noisy bad music of the town...go to Punto Verde.

Room Tip: The walk up the hill is not as bad as it looks. Trust me Im not athletic ;)
