We are a family from Europe, we moved to Ecuador one year ago. We opened the hostel and started a new life. Ecuadorian coast is a beautiful place to be, especially our nice little village Olon.
It is a small NEW hostel with 9 rooms located in the center of Olon, Santa Elena, just 50 meters from the beautiful beach,ideal to surfing and relax. Every room has its own private bathroom with showers.
We provide clean bed sheets and towels. Free WIFI as well.
The beach is well organised and very clean. The central part of the beach has restaurants and small kiosks with excellent shade.
Your peace and tranquility can be broken only by crashing waves and the bird song from a wide variety of bird species including humming birds which are abundant in the area. Very often on the beach you can find iguanas and may occasionally spot wild horses. Tropical jungle extends down to the beach, and offers several hiking trails leading to two pretty waterfalls.
