I instantly fell in love with this little hostel. It is located right next to a stream, and their garden is constantly full of local birds, including hummingbirds. I paid $8 for a single person bedroom in which the room faced outwards to the garden, giving me a view of the birds and mountains.The staff were also helpful, answering my... More

The good first. It's a cute hostel and you definitely feel like you're sleeping in a treehouse. You can hear the river, which only adds to the effect. They provide a mosquito net for you. However, there were several detractors that make me not want to stay here... • Wifi only works in the common area, not the rooms •... More

We stayed at this simple, but charming hostel for 1 night. Super friendly staff. It is very easy to plan your activities in Mindo at the hostel. Quiet and peaceful at night, with comfortable beds and hot shower!

We fell in love with this charming hostel covered in plants and flowers. Our room had plants coming in the window, the open-air diningroom had butterflies feeding on vines beside a small pool tumbling over rocks where we swam occasionally in the cold clear water. The breakfast (optional) was delicious, the staff helpful and friendly, the cabins clean. We arranged... More

We stayed 5 nights in one of the private rooms. No complaints for the price. The room was clean. The shower had beautiful hot water. Bed was pretty comfortable. Staff are very friendly and happy to help. The common space is super peaceful, right next to the river and they have 2 awesome dogs. Breakfast is pretty good value. Loads... More

I have stayed in Casa de Cecilia twice. First with a group of people and the second time with a friend. Both times I stay in a very nice room with shared bathroom. The place helps you organized tours around Mondo which comes pretty handy. People came to pick us up for tubing to a group of 7 people!!!! We... More

Casa Cecelia is located about a block off the Main Street in Mindo. Walk towards the main park, take a left and you'll start to see the signs. There are an array of buildings here and all are quite rustic and charming. Our room was in what looked to be a newer house with a comfortable bed, great views, and... More

Loved everything about this hostel. Beautiful outside area to eat, cheap and good breakfast. The people at the hostel were always kind and willing to set up taxis and pick-ups for our group to and from certain nearby attractions. The hostel is steps away from a tiny organic farm, where you can go on a chocolate tasting tour. The only... More

I found it to be a great place to meet other travellers and relax amongst nature. You can easily book any activities you want to do in Mindo at the reception. It was only $8 a night for a private room. Bathrooms have warm water and there is wifi in the main area which can sometimes meet the rooms further... More

I absolutely loved La Casa de Cecilia. It´s rustic charm makes it feel like a little hideaway in the forest, and it really felt like home for my brief stay. I chose room 8, the one that´s out in the elements. It was so amazing falling asleep to the sounds of the frogs and waking up to birds. The staff... More
