This hostel is located right at the river so it is a peaceful and pretty spot. There is seating right near it and we enjoyed sitting here and relaxing. We were disappointed, however, by the rest of the hostel. Our room was very small and cramped. It was a twin room with two large beds that left little other space... More

Chose a private room that also had a private bathroom. Despite being reassured there is hot water, when we wanted to shower there was none. When we complained to the front desk we were told that they are aware of this problem and we can shower in a different building. This second attempt also proved unfortunate since the water in...

Stayed for just the one night. This hostel is located right in the centre of Mindo, which was the most touristy town we visited on our Ecuador trip. This may sound bad, but it was very much welcomed to have a decent bed and warm shower. This hostel supplied both of those. A continual supply of hot water in the... More

The hostel is beautifully located by the river. The village is quiet, so when you wake up early all you hear is the river. The beds are comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms are very clean. They have bird-feeders on the property, so you can observe the hummingbirds in the garden. The wifi is really good.

La Casa de Cecilia is located by a pretty stream and surrounded by nature with stunning mountain views and frequent bird visits. I stayed in one of the single rooms, it was tiny but comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Only downside is the lack of privacy in the private rooms, basically a thin and see-through wall separates you from someone... More

This is a nice place, next to the center of Mindo and beside of the river. Double rooms are right in the middle of the jungle in modern and very well made wooden cabanas, if not in the main building. Cosy rooms and good beds! The bathroom was quite small, but ok. Take a night walk in the small jungle... More

This hostal is perfect for families on a tight budget, backpackers or just a base for the many activities in and around Mindo. It is rustic and simple has a great breakfast for just a few Dollars more and is - as already mentioned - beside a chocolate factory. Great place to spend a few days of vacation!!!

Mindo is a small town where everyone seems to know everyone... And when you stay at Casa de Cecilia, you are welcomed immediately! The accommodation is pretty nice; I liked that the dorm was open (large windows!) and it was fun... It felt like sleeping in a well furnished tree house. Mosquito nets are provided :) there are also hammocks... More

The staff is really great and will help you with any activities you want to take part in without pushing you at all. The rooms are nice and clean with fresh sheets and towels.
