I spent one night in Bio Hostal. The room was clean and tidy. Staff were very helpful with regard to activities in the area. Great place for a reasonable price in Mindo. The owner manager does a 3hr bird tour which is really good although it may not suit all budgets. I definitely recommend the tubing as it is cheap... More

The place is kind of funky, but that's maybe its charm. Bed was comfortable, water was plentiful and hot, breakfast good and filling, wifi worked fine in public areas. Free coffee, tea and water throughout the day. Super-nice hosts. I met several nice fellow travelers and had a few interesting conversations, which is why an hostel can be more desirable... More

My room made me feel like I was staying in a very comfortable treehouse. There were 2 walls of window overlooking the garden where I spotted my first wild toucan. The trees are filled with bromeliads and birds. It is an easy walk to town and 2 blocks to the Jardin de Orquideas for a $3 tour of the amazing,... More

We had such a lovely time at Bio Hostal! The family that runs the hostel are so kind and accommodating. They helped us to book all the activities that we wanted to do and were so helpful.

I stayed one night at this hostel so I could do the cascades trail the next morning. The price is very good for what you get in return. It's not fancy, but it has a great eco and relaxing vibe (it fits its purpose). The staff were very service oriented and friendly, also breakfast was fresh and delicious. One of... More
