We spent two nights at Anna and David's place. It was great! The were both lovely and very friendly. We stayed in a room with mountain view. It was clean and nice with a great view. I wish we could have stayed longer!

Very clean and comfortable. The couple who own it were very accommodating. Beautiful gardens. A little bit out of Mindo but easily walked. We were very happy with our choice of an overnight stay in Mindo.

We had a wonderful stay at this hostel. It appears to be family-owned and run and the service was impeccable. They offer a great breakfast and even have a small bar if you need a cocktail or splash or rum at the end of your day. I traveled with my wife and 9 year old son and the room was...

Ananaw is a short 5 minute walk from the main street of town, making it quiet to sleep and easily accessible to everything Mindo has to offer. The rooms are cabin-like set in a beautiful garden. I am quite particular about cleanliness and Ananaw is very clean. The beds are comfy. The hosts are so nice, extremely helpful and accommodating....

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved it. We had one of the cheaper rooms with the bunk beds but they were perfect. The lower bunk was basically a queen and the upper bed was a single. The view from the room (Room 2) was probably one of the better views on the property. We...
