To summarize: the hostel is run by an extremely kind and helpful woman who knows her way around the town. Everything you could ask for is available. It has towels, a great kitchen, hot water, and the best internet we've had so far. Plus a pair of rescued street puppies! Arriving late at night in Mindo, it was hard to... More

Norma is really accommodating and took care of everything. We ran out of laundry & she washed it for us. She cleaned our room frequently. She even took care of booking us a bird watching tour. Her children are very sweet and help her around the hostel. She provided clean towels, changed the sheets and even helped us with our... More

Great location (5 minute walk from the center of Mindo), excellent prices, and wonderful hosts. Norma, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful, and her English is great. There are often different members of the family hanging around the common area if you want to practice your Spanish, as they are all very friendly. The wifi (added bonus in the... More

Hostal Rubby was a nice getaway to relax and enjoy nature. Located just outside of the main center of Mindo it is close enough to the central attractions, restaurants, bars etc while providing a true sense of being in nature. The rooms are spacious and beautiful with their natural lighting. Hot showers and fast internet are an added bonus. Norma... More

Rubby's is a great place to stay. The deck with hammocks are wonderful. Norma, the owner, is the best hostess ever!!! On very short notice, she found a ride for the 6 of us from Quito to Mindo late at night as the bus schedule had changed!!! She arranged a wonderful birding tour guide and had breakfast ready at whatever... More

My girlfriend and I staid at Rubby Hostel for 2 nights. The hostel is located more or less 100 meters out of town. It is very calm, and quite. There's quite some "nature-noise", but it didn't keep us awake. It was actually quite relaxing. There are dozens of birds flying around in the gardens. You can watch the hummingbirds while... More

Rubby's is a wonderful place to base out of for a weekend in Mindo. Norma is a caring host who provides a delicious breakfast whenever works with your schedule. There are plentiful birds in the garden and it's just a short walk to town. Norma and her family will help you choose restaurants and tours. They are very professional and... More
