Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Loved everything about this hostel. Beautiful outside area to eat, cheap and good breakfast. The people at the hostel were always kind and willing to set up taxis and pick-ups for our group to and from certain nearby attractions. The hostel is steps away from a tiny organic farm, where you can go on a chocolate tasting tour. The only thing awful about this hostel is the walls are paper thin and you can hear eveything from the neighboring rooms. Bring ear plugs!

I found it to be a great place to meet other travellers and relax amongst nature. You can easily book any activities you want to do in Mindo at the reception. It was only $8 a night for a private room. Bathrooms have warm water and there is wifi in the main area which can sometimes meet the rooms further away.There are hammocks to chill in and an open space where i could practice yoga. Perfect place for a quiet break.

I absolutely loved La Casa de Cecilia. It´s rustic charm makes it feel like a little hideaway in the forest, and it really felt like home for my brief stay. I chose room 8, the one that´s out in the elements. It was so amazing falling asleep to the sounds of the frogs and waking up to birds. The staff was really friendly and helpful. I did not want to leave. Definitely stay here!

This hostel had a great location in Mindo, right next to el quetzal chocolate factory. It was so relaxing in Mindo and we got an adorable dorm style room with four beds, complete with mosquito nets. The breakfast is cheap and really good, especially the coffee. The woman who owns the place is really helpful and will set up any activities you want. You can also store your luggage there for free on check out day, which is really helpful. The room was really clean and cheap. We only paid $8 a night per person and there was a great spot to hang out in hammocks and read. We had a private bathroom attached to our room, but had to go to the main area to shower. Definitely a great spot, highly recommend.

The location of this place is great - secluded but only takes a few minutes to walk to the main square. Stayed in a single room which was tiny but fine for one night, it was partly open to the elements and looked out into the trees, could lay and listen to the river in the morning! Breakfast was good for only $2.50. Mindo itself was quite quiet when I stayed (Thursday night) but there is so much to do!!

We stayed here for a weekend in January 2014 from Quito. The hostel is rustic but lovely and relaxed. It's located slightly out of the main square in town so you feel remote but everything is accessible. Xavied, at the front desk, was very kind and helpful with lifts to and from the many activities in and around Mindo.
There are hammocks in the common area upstairs which were fab to relax on. Throughout the weekend we felt very welcome and would love to go back! Also- we recommend doing the tubing, really fun!

Cute place, i like it a lot. The room are pretty small but they are super clean. The staff is helpful. The wifi only fonction in the common area wich is good. The breakfast was okay. I like the fact that they have a mosquito net. They only thing is theres no privacy we could hear everything from the other rooms. I recommend this place to everyone.
