What other travelers are saying

This place had great views, short walk to a small beach. A great cost effective choice of accommodation compared to hotels. It's good for groups and those that want to self cater. The kitchen has enough facilities to cook full meals and there were more than enough towels and bedding”


United Kingdom

We went to Pt Montara Hostel as a group. We had an easy time making the group reservation. The check-in process was simple, the facilities were clean, and the staff was very friendly. The hostel itself is located in a beautiful location overlooking the ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed using the facilities and hope to return again. Thank you!”
