Stayed here after a not great experience in another popular hostel the first night. Loved this spot and the breakfast was best we've had in a while. Good home brewed beer and helpful owners. Worth the extra $10 you pay here as you get an excellent breakfast.

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 ten year old kids) spent a long weekend in Mindo at the Dragonfly Inn and definitely recommend it. The rooms were clean and simple (which we like). We loved the sound of the creek and the hammock. Ingo the owner was present and helpful: he connected us up with a great birding guide... More

I've stayed at a few locations in Mindo in my time here, too bad I didn't find this place earlier. Dragonfly is above and beyond the best in terms of quality of food and service, cleanliness and location. It's situated right on the Mindo River at the beginning of town, so everything is close by but you have the beautiful... More

Really good location beside the river that puts you right to sleep! Well at least our room at the big window facing the river, I'm pretty sure some of the rooms face the street. The beds were comfy and the place has good hot-water showers. Wifi only works in the lobby.

We stayed two great nights at the Dragonfly Inn. Easy check in. Spent my first hour or so on a hammock overlooking the little creek that runs behind the place watching hummingbirds and butterflies go by. Ingo and his wife are very friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms are comfortable. No TV but the sounds of the creek will send you off... More

We booked this Inn last minute and were very happy with it. The rooms are very nice and clean and the beds are great! The Inn is quiet and homey. The restaurant attached to the hotel has great food and my friend and I enjoyed our nights drinking tea there after hours. The Inn is very close to many great... More

Don't hesitate to book this little hotel. Great value, organised, and very clean...it's a gem! The managers Ingo and his lovely wife are terrific, and you couldn't hope for a better spot to enjoy this rustic, vibrant little village. The Food is also superb - big serves - provides a great opportunity to feed some of the local doggies that... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our second trip to Mindo as we'd heard good things about it, but we were thoroughly disappointed. The room was tiny, as was the bed, and was so noisy. There was noise from the street, anytime a car goes by it really echoes. And more than that, the doorway to the rest of... More

Hello world. No word when you were here-weird!

We visited the Mindo area in August 2014. This is a lovely structure of wooden construction next to the river and centrally located.The outside river side court yard/cafe is particularly enjoyable.
