The staff make this place great--they went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay and connected us with different tours in the area to do. The breakfast is good and cheap. The beds were super cozy and there's lots of hammocks. Hot showers too. Only real complaint was no lockers to lock valuables..however it is a very safe place. A must stay in Mindo!

Very sweet little place, we booked a twin room and it was lovely! There were hummingbirds flying about outside our window and the river running past made it feel like you were in the jungle! Great shower and comfy beds. No complaints!

Lovely location next to the river with wonderful wooden cabins that look out into the cloud forest. At times the staff were a bit hostile and unhelpful, and there is nowhere to lock away your things if staying in a dorm room.

I loved my stay at Casa de Ceclia, especially my room above the river. Paula and the staff were very nice and helped me get to Mompiche on a taxi. Zip lines close by and tour of the Chocolate factory next door were so convenient and having rubber boots to borrow was great. I met lots of travelers there who also liked a quiet place to stay and it was an easy walk to everything else I wanted to do. You will like it there!

Solo female traveler. Hostel was perfect. Great price for a private room that was clean and charming. I felt completely safe here. Lady who runs the hostel is great about helping you with anything you need. Would definitely return in a heartbeat!

Nice stay. The hummingbird garden was a lovely touch. Beds were warm and comfortable and rooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast was overpriced but there are heaps of options a short walk away. My only real issue with this place is there were no lockers in the dorm and the dorm room door was open at all times so it didn't feel super secure. i asked the staff to hold on to my passport and cash for the week for me, which they did. But then I felt bad asking them to get it every few mornings.

Good value rooms just a minute walk from the town square. The hostel has a beautiful setting right by the river, where you can swim and watch the hummingbirds. The main downsides of this hostel were cleanliness and security. The mosquito nets on the bed were dirty and full of holes. We decided to take ours down as it wasn't needed and we felt more comfortable without it. Also the doors don't lock well and we were in a separate cabin where the front door was always open. But I would go back!

A beautiful hostel very close to a small river. Some rooms cannot be locked so if you need one you should ask beforehand (private rooms). You can have breakfast there at an additional cost.

Comfortable hostel in Mindo. Rooms were very quiet at night. WiFi worked best in off-peak hours. Located right next to the river to swim or cool down in. Showers had hot water (but not in the morning during peak hours), and the room was very clean and spacious. Staff were very helpful, although they do not speak much English. You can´t use the kitchen facilities, except the refrigerator, which is pretty bad, but you can organize tours through the reception. Loved my stay and highly recommend.

Great hostel and location. Rooms and facilities were clean and well maintained. Ground floor room was pretty noisey. Wooden structures and flooring above creaked every time someone upstairs moved. Could hear full conversations through the walls. Even though signs all over the hostel were in English, staff didn't speak any English at all, which made life difficult if you don't speak Spanish.

The location is lovely. It was a very peaceful three days spent at Cecilia. Very good place to meet other travelers and the place just gives off a great vibe. It was hard to leave

Such a nice hostel! Great location right on the river with a garden that attracts hummingbirds and butterflys. The hostel is a series of wood huts that are really cosy. Everyone who works there is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really good too (few dollars extra). Hot water was a slight issue sometimes, but if you let them know they will sort it. Good place to meet other travellers too. Really nice place to chill, also internet was good for Mindo!

The hostel is very cosy and clean. The staff is extremely helpful and would organize everything for you: from tubing to reserving the tickets for the bus back to Quito. Showers are very good (good pressure+warm), the only downside is that you are not allowed to use the kitchen (although they were ok with me using some dishes). Definitely recommended.

One of the best hostels i've ever been at! The location is amazing, just by the river where the people of Mindo take their daily swim. The garden is full of hummingbirds and butterflies. The owners are so friendly and helpful. Only downside is that you're not allowed to use the kitchen (though you're perfectly welcome to borrow a plate, knife and fork if you do buy your own food)
