The space
Esperanto is a chill beachside retreat for travelers visiting the beautiful town of Montanita. The hostel is famous for our unique 3-story pentagonal structure that has often been compared to a lighthouse – a true architectural gem in Montañita!
*We have 2 private rooms with capacity for 4 pax per room, each room is furnished with two (2) bunk beds and 1 double bed, each room with a private ensuite bathroom and provide flexible sleeping options for guests and also features a private balcony that not only provides spectacular vistas of Montañita beach, but also invites the gentle sea breezes & the sounds of crashing waves to lull you to sleep at night.


Our charming dorm rooms are true havens for rest & relaxation.

Each dormitory is equipped with a ceiling fan for temperature control, a mosquito net, and a safe deposit box (complete with an electrical outlet INSIDE) for locking up personal items and securely charging your electronics.

The third floor balcony boasts iconic views of the Pacific Ocean & endless moments of 'tranquillo' from the cozy hammocks hung along the hardwood terrace. This is a perfect place to sip a café con leche & scope out the morning waves or enjoy a cold beer while watching the sun disappear into the horizon. This is the perfect spot for mingling with fellow guests & exchanging stories about adventurous travels.

The gated entry leads guests into a private yard featuring manicured landscaping, lush green grass, and vibrant gardens. The walk way wraps around to the backyard sanctuary where patrons can relax in hammocks, enjoy staff organized BBQs, escape the sun beneath the canopy tent, or enjoy a lovely breakfast before starting your day of sight-seeing.

Guests are welcomed at reception by friendly multilingual staff who are eager to help get you settled into your accommodations. The entry way of the hostel flows into a spacious common area featuring a fully equipped kitchen complete with a fridge, a stove top, blender, and a toaster - ideal for cooking budget-friendly meals for yourself or to share with friends.

The adjoining living room offers guests a relaxed space furnished with comfortable seating and a book exchange with a diverse reading selection. This is a great nook for curling up with a book or kicking-up your feet & watching a flick.

Esperanto exudes a chill "beach life" vibe characterized by the unique collection of décor featured throughout the hostel. Hand-painted surf boards, scenic ocean artwork, and trinkets from global travels adorn the walls to create an eclectic style unique to Esperanto.

There are endless adventures available for guests visiting Montañita regardless of the time of year. Get an adrenaline rush while paragliding over the ocean, explore the beaches along Ruta del Spondylus, go whale watching or visit La Isla de La Plata from Puerto Lopez, embark on a snorkeling excursion in Salango, or observe the local wild life while hiking through the Machalilla National Park. Looking to add even more excitement to your trip? Then head out on the town to Montañita’s city center and experience the vibrant night life that made this town famous!

There is truly something for everyone in Montañita!

Location

Montañita, Santa Elena, Ecuador

Esperanto is located in a quiet neighborhood just a quick 2-minute walk from Montañita beach and just 5 minutes from the main city center. While guests are close to the parties and night life, they are far enough away from the hustle & bustle to enjoy a restful night sleep.

There are countless fantastic restaurants located within walking distance which feature culinary delights like Italian & Mexican cuisine, traditional American fare (pizza & burgers), sushi, ceviche, and vegetarian/vegan options. Having trouble deciding where to dine? Just ask our awesome staff who can recommend popular hot spots or a fantastic “hidden secret” local diner.

Guests can book tours through our staff, or through the locals in town, for activities such as paragliding over the ocean, renting sea kayaks, booking a surf lesson, attending a yoga class or renting bikes to explore the trails at Dos Mangas.
