Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our three nights stay here. We had a double room with private bathroom which was spacious with a really comfortable bed. We stayed in the New building on the upper Floor. The building was surrounded by cloud forest and we were able to observe all kind of birds right from our room. And at... More

This is sort of a laid back place that caters to backpackers and others. Some of the rooms are kind of quirky, but they're clean, affordable and close to the center of town. It's right on the Mindo River, so there's a place you can go down by the water. Pretty location. In the building we were in, the rooms... More

We only had an afternoon, one night, and the following day in Mindo, but it was a delightful, relaxing experience and staying at the Casa de Cecilia really helped us relax and recuperate from jet lag. Our room was small but in a small pavilion built out of attractive polished timber that seemed to be typical in Mindo. It had... More

Not one member of staff can speak a word of English. Not a word. There is a large kitchen with great facilities but it is not available for guests Average overpriced breakfast I paid the same price for a single bed room in which I had to climb through a trap door to access as my friend paid for a...

I stayed at casa de cecilia because my first choice hostel has no space. and the owner was at the terminal to show me everything which was very nice. the private room was $10. I never had to register anything. Also the day I left I couldn't find the owner. The room was a little bit smelly and I couldn't... More

The location for this hostel is fantastic, right next to the river (great for swimming!) and the famous El Quetzel chocolate factory/restaurant. The beds in the dorm are great and all protected with mosquito nets, unfortunately there are no lockers and I probably wouldn´t leave anything valuable at the reception. The owners can organise any activity. I travelled solo and... More

Comfortable hostel in Mindo. Rooms were very quiet at night. WiFi worked best in off-peak hours. Located right next to the river to swim or cool down in. Showers had hot water (but not in the morning during peak hours), and the room was very clean and spacious. Staff were very helpful, although they do not speak much English. You... More

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
