This is my second time at Casa de Cecilia. I've loved it both times. The owners will arrange everything for you, and call taxis to come you up for every activity. They are super friendly, and will explain all the different activities, and offer to find other people at the hostel to go with to make the taxi ride cheaper.... More

Best breakfast we had during our trip to south America, by the river amongst the birds. Cecilia's daughter is lovely and really helpful. Mindo was our first stop in 5months travelling and definitely a place to see if you like wildlife. You won't be disappointed.

Went to Mindo for a weekend! Casa de Cecilia was great. Good location right next to the chocolate factory and close to other activities; hiking, rafting, zip-lining, butterfly factories. Also: the rooms were so cute, the bed the best I slept in in Ecuador and the shower was fantastic. I'd recommend it to everyone going to Mindo.

I stayed at Casa de Cecilia for four nights. The first three nights I stayed in the dorm, a nice spacious room, the mattress was comfortable but the bunk itself a little shaky. Mosquito nets were provided though, that was nice. The last night I moved to a private room due to a double booking on the dorm. That room... More

I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights recently. The rooms are incredibly clean and most are fairly spacious. The location is great, not too far from the main road, removed enough to avoid the hustle amd bustle but less than 3 minutes to stroll there. The nearby river or the hammock deck are great places to relax.

This was a wonderful place to stay and if you have a large group you can rent an entire house to yourself. We paid $8 a person for a 4 bedroom, two bathroom, and two balcony house in the middle of Mindo. They can also help with tours and general information in Mindo.

Found this a great place to stay, it is very comfortable, and only cost us $9 per person per night! The staff are friendly and have a lot of information on the activities around Mindo. Just remember to bring bug spray or you'll get eaten alive by the Mosquitos!

9$ a night for a "dorm" which really was 4 full beds! Nice break from bunks and hoards of people. I was lucky enough to have the place to myself. Didn't have breakfast here but the prices were cheap and looked tasty from my window. Yes the window! Grey views of the street the river the trees the birds. So... More

We stayed 2 nights. The double room we had was lovely. Clean with own bathroom and sound of the river. The hostel is peaceful and pretty. The river is lovely and the hummingbirds come close so you cab watch then. Showers are hot with good water pressure and the breakfast is great. The best place to eat in town is... More

Positives: This was a great place to stay in Mindo. The setting couldn't be better, right next to the river with hummingbirds everywhere. They also had some gorgeous dogs and a little kitten. The cabin we stayed in had a nice terrace area to relax in. They do a good breakfast for a decent price and our close to a... More
