“Great place; Great People”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Clean, pleasant and relaxing. Rooms were clean, showers were hot and the food was good. They were having a few bumps with the kitchen staff during our stay, which is the only thing that keeps me from giving this 5 stars. The menu has enough variety and quality to keep you happy for a few days, and the atmosphere is very cozy and inviting. We stayed for 3 nights. You are not likely to find this level of quality for the price anywhere else in Mindo.

Sue was very helpful and forthcoming with advice and guidance about what to do in Mindo. We took her suggestions and had a great time. I would definately stay here again.

We had a great lunch at CasKaffeSu. The service was great and the food was delicious. We even went back later in the day to purchase another portion of their banana cake. I highly suggest their lemonade which was very refreshing and fresh. We went to Mindo for the day so we didn't need a room but if we were to go back the rooms at CasKaffeSu seemed very clean, simple and great value for the price.

A great hostel and place to eat. The rooms are nice, the atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. They even have a fire place to dry out your bones!

Plus they have a great selection of Wine

An amazing place in Mindo for a very low price (16$ per person). The place has very large rooms nicely decorated and with a rustic feel. Also has a nice central patio and a large restaurant and bar area. You feel welcome in the place from the beginning with an always smiling and helpful staff (particularly the lady in charge of the place who is just wonderful). The only small downside is that, although it has wifi, you only get reception in the restaurant and patio. The place is in the centre of Mindo so if you want a place in the middle of nature and outside everything this is not for you;however Mindo is such a small village that don't worry about noises at all and in a 3 mins walk you will be in the middle of all te nature you can possibly want. Overall I truly recommend this place

We were lucky to stumble across the cafe/restaurant as part of our stay in Mindo. The first afternoon we had the most delicious banana cake and coffee. We then returned for breakfast one day and again had great service from friendly staff and enjoyed the company of the friendly dogs. As far as food goes, this looked like the best place in Mindo and we would have eaten there again if we were staying longer.

We really enjoyed our stay at Caskaffesu, Susan was really friendly and helpful and the rooms were lovely. We got fresh clean towels every day due to the climate in Mindo meaning that wet towels didn't dry very well. We got great recommendations for what to do in Mindo from Susan and the food was brilliant. The caskaffesu brownies are deservedly famous. Wifi was great but you could only really get a good signal from the restaurant area. It would've been great to have breakfast included in the price as $16 per person for a double room was a little high in comparison to other hostels in the area, but the service more than made up for it. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I ate here only a few days ago. The food was fantastic! We had been finding that lots of food in Ecuador was particularly salty but this food was amazing. Would definitely recommend eating here when you are visiting Mindo.
