I was going to stay for only one night and extended my stay to two nights because I felt so calm with the beautiful surroundings. The cafe is a nice warm dark-den type atmosphere, the small courtyard is full of color and tropical plants and I loved sitting there. The wifi had a strong enough signal that I could call... More

This place is OK. I had a private room with a bathroom. The shower had hot water for the 90 seconds it took me to get soaped up. The bathroom is very poorly lit. The price was $30 and did not include breakfast. This was 50 per cent more than the price listed in the guidebook, and I appeared to... More

I first visited Mindo years ago, when CasKaffeSu ("cas" for cascade, "kaffe" for the coffee they sell, "Su" for Sue, one of the owners). The place was smaller and less architecturally crowded than today; the restaurant was open, immaculate, and tasty (Sue was the cook; now, is a nurse) . When I visited again in December of 2014, the property... More

I would not recommend staying at this location. The owner is welcoming and friendly. It is a little higher priced than other locations. What we found frustrating is that even after calling in ahead of time and arranging to be there early afternoon the room was not ready until two hours after our arrival. Washroom was small and poorly lite... More

Intended to spend a night or two but stayed 3. Beautiful artistic hotel with tile floors, iron grill work and thick walls. Andean music and excellent locally-grown coffee. Friendly and helpful staff. CasKaffesu is an oasis of artistic talents and progressive thinking.

I was really disappointed with this place, particularly given the price per night. Once upon a time this place might have been nice....but now it is not. The room I was in was dark and damp with mould growing on the walls. The pillows I was given smelled like they hadn't been washed in months - disgusting. Ice cold water... More

The place is very nice, staff is very friendly and rooms have everything one needs (except WiFi which is too weak inside and there is significant fungus on the walls which no one... More

I had visited CasKaffe about 2 years prior to my last visit and it was excellent, but unfortunately this time was very different. It seems that the owners have changed, time has moved on but the new owner has unfortunately let this place go to ruin! It now seems very tired and dated and in need of a good clean... More

I absolutely loved CasKaffeSu and felt so lucky to have found it. Beautiful place, perfect location, wonderful owners and community, and a great hub for music, coffee and connecting with people. It is actually still open as a hostel; old information that it closed is no longer accurate.

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...
