“Amazing hostel in an equally amazing location”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

We absolutely loved our stay at Bio Hostal in Mindo. Our room was on the second floor and had a large window which looked out into the canopy of a tree full of epiphytes and birds. The staff were excellent, they were all very friendly and welcoming and went to extra effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The hostal is immaculately clean and has hot water and a kitchen that you are free to use. The breakfast at the hostal is great (the best we have had on our travels) and there is coffee and tea available in the afternoons too. The hostal is in a good location close to the orchid garden, hummingbird garden, bus stop, the main square (restaurants etc) and you are able to walk to the reserve and the waterfalls with the opportunity to see numerous bird species along the way. Mindo in general is very beautiful and very safe. We would love to come back and would definitely recommend Bio Hostal to anyone wanting to visit Mindo.

We stayed 2 nights, hot water, nice community room with lots of travel literature. Owner does birdwatching tours and He made us breakfast twice at 6 am before we caught a early bus and before going bird watching. Two blocks to downtown, next door to hummingbird and butterfly garden. Clean rooms, very reasonable and safe, quiet area.

Room's were very nice, shower was nice and hot. The breakfast was also delicious and the common area's were really nice. What really made this place amazing was the manager, we were stranded at 4am in the morning because our taxi driver decided not to show up and he helped us to find one. Can't say enough for this guy. Not many people that would get out of bed to help someone out like that.

Biohostal was a surprise for me. This hostal about a block from the main square is well kept, organized, designed beautifully, and most of all spacious. The staff is amazingly knowledgable and Irman (a staff member) is a local bird guide. Great impression all around. Will stay here again in future.

We had a great stay at Biohostal. The owners are absolutely lovely and gave us everything we could have wanted. Breakfast is great and they made it for whenever we needed it as we had to leave about 6am to get a bus to Quito on our final day.

I would highly recommend going with Irman (the owner) on a bird watching tour too. We saw a few different species of toucans and parrots amongst many other interesting and beautiful birds.

Thanks for a great stay!

Pretty easy to find, hot shower, good wifi, breakfast was nice, I thought the owner was helpful with the basics (which was all I needed), dorm room was nice and clean, so was the kitchen and bathroom and communal area, with hummingbirds sometimes flying around outside. It was pretty quiet which was what I was after. The day I left though a big group arrived - as always, you can never determine who will be staying there when you choose a place. They let us use the kitchen to make some pasta and soup. Close to town. So I would recommend this to people!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Biohostal.

We had a good-sized room with a good-sized bathroom, there is wifi in the rooms and a computer to use, along with some books and maps, places to sit and relax, hammocks to hang in, a nice garden area, and a really nice guy who owns and runs it.

He'll make a nice breakfast anytime you want it, can give good and useful information, and the price is very good. And we of course love his sustainability sensibility!
