    Fantastic hostel!! We originally booked an Airbnb in Mindo and upon arrival, it was rather dirty with terrible service. We booked at Casa de Cecilia at the last minute for the same day and upon arrival, everything was clean and ready to accommodate guests. The staff was very helpful and the room was very nice. It was clean and very close to the center of town. Thank you!

    Great place. We were only there for 1 night but slept very well and loved the sound of the river just outside. Very soothing.

    La casa de Cecila is an excellent hostal. We slept, ate and relaxed super good while staying there. La casa de Cecilia also offers a whole range of tours which you can book at the hostal.

    The location could not be better. While it’s tucked away from the traffic and noise, it’s still less than a 2 minute walk into town.

    Great hostel. Very relaxing location. Lots to do in Manta. Hostel offers free Wellington boots for guests to borrow which is a must when trecking to the waterfall. Private room was very cheap and nice.

    Nice hostel. Very laid back by the river on the edge of town but still a two minute walk since everything is so close. However as a solo traveler wasnt much of an atmosphere. If you are looking for a chill place this is it but it's not very social.

    Adorable little hostel with the sweetest puppers. Nice sized rooms, very clean. They help with arranging all activities. Only thing is that the noise carries a lot - every step or word the people above and beside me made was heard. But overall really liked it and would stay again. Also for those in Mindo be wary of activities. Did some research and a tourist died on the ziplines in 2012 and apparently 4 died tubing at some point in the past.

    Nice basic hostel in Mindo. The hammocks are great for relaxing at night while listening to the river. The breakfast was cheap and delicious.

    service consists of a boy gaming on his phone, not looking up as he speaks. room keys lie on the desk of the reception but most of the time, no one is there. storage room has an open lock on it the whole time. after check out i left some of my stuff there and before i left i walked straight to the storage room, got my stuff and left again without anyone noticing. rooms are open to nature, you can hear the neighbor breathing. dirt fell out of the mosquito net as i opened it. bed was uneven.
