I had a lovely relaxing stay here, it's a beautiful spot on the river, with a jungle feel and hummingbirds buzzing around, with a spot you can swim in to cool off on a hot day! The staff are so friendly, and it was a good place to meet other backpackers. Gracias!

In a wonderfull environment, nice staff and really clean. Can get loud if you have bad luck with other guests but that's everywhere I guess ... :-) Different options are open from dorm to room with private bathroom and they know the area and are kind to help.

Arrived in the afternoon at the hostel. Cecialia was really nice and showed as after we got our room, some things to do. she organized us a horsebackriding, which wasnt that special and because of the wheater pretty wet, and the chocolate tour from nearby at the quetzal. She also informed us about a taxi for the next morning, that... More

We stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom for 2 nights and really liked the hostel. The wooden lodge like building has hammocks out on a terrace and is surrounded by jungle like forest with beautiful birds flying around. Mosquito nets are provided in the rooms although we didn't see any Mosquitos. The communal area is great for... More

We arrived to this place due to personal recommendation. We did not reserve ahead of time (in fact through Trip advisor we were unable to as I guess the guest house doesnt work with any of the booking agents.) We had no trouble getting a room (midweek). We took a room with shower/bathroom. It was clean and with huge windows... More

This hostel is my favourite out of all of the hostels we've stayed in so far in Ecuador. It's in a central location right beside a chocolate cafe which offers tours. The staff are really friendly and helpful ( I've no idea why so many reviews say they're unfriendly?!), but you do need some Spanish as I don't think they... More

Loved this place, I got the coolest room at the top of the building, windows all around and a little hobbit door! The atmosphere was great. Awesome common area and good breakfast, though a bit expensive. I didn't think the staff was very nice though.

A group of friends and I stayed at Casa de Cecilia for a night a couple weeks ago and loved it. The rooms were cozy and clean, and we had a wonderful breakfast sitting in the open-air dining area. I absolutely recommend this place, and know I will be returning the next time I visit Mindo!

Rooms were very cosy and clean and had a lovely tree house feel to them which was great with our jungle view. Mosquito net was provided which was also very handy. Breakfast was $3 for scrambled eggs and rolls with butter and really nice jam as well as tea and fresh juice. The hostal was a 2 minute walk from... More

In general, this is an average hostel. WiFi isn't too good in the rooms and the staff is friendly, but not very helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are fine and you get a towel, which is nice. Breakfast is good and the biggest plus is that you can watch birds from your breakfast tables. They even have two feeders so... More
