I have stayed in a couple of the nicer hostels in Mindo and this one is by far the best. The hostel itself is absolutely gorgeous! The combination of architecture and nature makes for a cozy atmosphere, especially with the awesome café that is attached to it! My room was spacious and extremely clean, with a big, cozy bed and...

CasKaffeSu is closed as a B&B, the last I heard, and as a restaurant. However, this doesn't mean that one shouldn't go there. A couple weekend days it is open as a place to hear Ecuadorian music and have coffee, wine and ice cream. I was only there for one weekend, but I presume this is an on-going situation. It's... More

Booking with CasKaffeSu had to be done through PayPal as non of the other vendors provided pricing/rooms. We booked in October last year and had written confirmation that we could cancel prior to 30 days of our stay at the end of May, 2014. The booking had to include by a 50% deposit. We had to cancel our trip to... More

I just learned from the owner - that they have closed the Hostel part of the business. The specific quote is - (so that I don't get it wrong) "We are now a coffee shop serving coffee from our plantation, desserts, wine, beer and cocktails and we're presenting live music in the evenings from Wed. to Sat., " Sorry to...

We arrived at the lush grounds of KasKaffeSu after a long day of motorcycling. The owner immediately came out to greet us, locked our bikes securely in the garden, and helped us to our rooms. The complex is vibrant, with colorful buildings and flowering gardens in the courtyard which lies between the restaurant/bar/reception area and the rooms. My friend and... More

stayed there twice, once alone and once with a group. Hotel is fine, nice rooms and fixed prices: always pay per person, no extra charge for singles. also singles group can have private double rooms each. restaurant was disappointing though. Food was burned and tasteless and ridiculously little for main course.

After reading reviews we were excited to stay at CasKaffeSu. It was not what we expected. First the Pros- good food, good location in town. Cons- dark, musty room without windows. The bedding smelled so bad that our pajamas smelled like the room when we got home. The patio is small and in the middle of all the rooms- very... More

Fun, homey and friendly place with wonderful owners. They bend over backwards to make their guests happy. Good food, both Ecuadoran and American dishes. They also make great coffee drinks with the coffee that they grow on their own coffee farm.

Location: Mindo is a beautiful place, but even off season it was over run with tourists. In the middle of the small village Mindo in a small site street, directly next to a bakery. All other hotels, and "shops" are within a 200 m radius, as well as the bus stop. If you are fit in walking it should be... More

Spent two days and two nights with Caskaffesu (CAScada, KAFFE, SUsan), and had such a great experience. The hospitality here is off the charts. The hotel and restaurant is run by American expat Susan and her Ecuadorean husband Luis and feels like an extension of home from the moment you walk in the door. They serve coffee grown from their...
