We stayed here for one night while visiting Mindo, and impressed with the room, breakfast, facilities and location of the Casa de Cecilia. The proximity to the flowing stream makes for a relaxing place to sit and read, while it is only a very short walk to the main town for the tours around Mindo.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. It's a mish-mash of wooden buildings which are quite rustic. It's got a nice spot by the river and the fruit salad breakfast is huge and very good. Wifi can be patchy but overall a nice place to stay. Great showers too.

Stayed here for 4 nights while exploring mindos wildlife and beautiful scenery. The lodge has loads of hammocks and nice bathrooms and showers. The owners are nice and helpful in every way, and are awlays nearby if you need them. Comfortable beds with mosquito nets. The only downside is that because the walls between the rooms are so thin(and holey)... More

I came here because everyone recommended it as the nicest place to stay in Mindo for the money. The actual place is quite beautiful - garden with birds and hummingbirds next to a river, mosquito nets, big comfortable beds and decently priced ($9 for a the dorm I was in). The location is close to the main street but not... More

I was lucky enough to receive a private single room even though I booked a dorm. Rooms are small but more than adequate; however be aware that you will hear your neighbours so bring earplugs if you sleep lightly. Lovely hot shower with decent pressure. Beautiful location right beside a flowing river. There is a common breakfast area directly beside... More

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.
