The rooms were spacious and clean. I paid a little extra for my own bedroom (Tucan room) and bathroom since I was staying for so long, and it was... More

We didn't stay here but were lucky to be hooked up with the owner, Nasir, who is also a local bird guide. He took us out for a fun morning of bird spotting and casual walking. We later learned that his hostel runs what seemed to be the only (open) laundry in town. We dropped off and it was ready... More

I spent one night in Bio Hostal. The room was clean and tidy. Staff were very helpful with regard to activities in the area. Great place for a reasonable price in Mindo. The owner manager does a 3hr bird tour which is really good although it may not suit all budgets. I definitely recommend the tubing as it is cheap... More

The place is kind of funky, but that's maybe its charm. Bed was comfortable, water was plentiful and hot, breakfast good and filling, wifi worked fine in public areas. Free coffee, tea and water throughout the day. Super-nice hosts. I met several nice fellow travelers and had a few interesting conversations, which is why an hostel can be more desirable... More

My room made me feel like I was staying in a very comfortable treehouse. There were 2 walls of window overlooking the garden where I spotted my first wild toucan.
