I cannot say enough good things about this place! My friend and I were staying at another place across the street and as we walked to the beach we saw this place.... instantly we were sold! We asked how much per night and it was even cheaper than our place that wasn't beach front! Amazing staff (so helpful!), great breakfast,...

To the point: It was very Clean, had a Great shower and very helpful staff! Less costly than other spots on the point AND comes with breakfast. It's got a great view of the break (better at high tide). A bit on the basic side but well worth the value. Also, fast wifi. Over and out!

Friendly owner and staff, unbeatable location and clean, basic rooms! Decent breakfast tho a little variety would have been good. Amazing to sit with a beer watching the sun set. Nice lounging area with hammocks. Would definitely return!

After taking an overnight bus from Banos to Guayaquil to Montanita, we couldn't wait to find somewhere to unwind for a bit. We walked all the way up the beach and when we stumbled on Sole Mare I was sold. They had a beautiful outdoor area right on the beach. We had heard that Montanita could be extremely noisy from...

This hostel is in the perfect location: 10 minutes walk along the beachfront to Montanita town/shops. away from the bulk of the noise, beach right out the front which is far less crowded than the beach in front of the main part of town, the point surf break is right out front, the best yoga in town is 1 minute...

I've stayed here about 4 times in the past 4 years and it has become my go to hostel in Montanita. I'm actually headed there again tomorrow for 5 days. It's perfectly situated just outside the party town Montanita. Far enough away from the city that all you hear is the waves at night, but close enough for a short...

Nice place right on the beach. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Very nice common area to meet other guests or just relax on your own. Competitive price and it includes breakfast which was a nice touch. I recommend this place.

Great location, nice, clean, and quiet place to hang out. Easily the best location (on the beach) and price you can find on the area. Breakfasts are pretty standard and small, that could easily be improved by adding a bit of fruit and maybe two eggs instead of one.

We stayed here for three weeks. The owners are friendly and helpful. And the hostal is right in front of the point break at Montanita. This means also that it's location is a little bit outside of Montanita itself. That is great because you actually can sleep and don't hear the music from all the bars. Would stay here again!
