Secluded house atop a hill in Mindo overlooking the valley, with amazing gardens, incredibly kind hosts, and a short walk to anything you want to do in Mindo, wish we could have stayed longer! So glad we found this restorative retreat.

The yellow house hostel is definitely the best place to stay if you are going to mindo . Hospitality is beyond compare Waters hot ...breakfast is wonderful 5$ xtra But worth it . The trails are well marked but rugged . The family that run it are just to sweet for words . I highly recommend.

We spent a few wonderful nights at the Yellow House. We had breakfast each morning & enjoyed the view, the food & the hummingbirds. It was a quick walk to the main part of Mindo. I would love to return! Paradise on earth!

The Yellow House, or Hacienda San Vicente is a quaint little hostel or bed and breakfast about a 10 minute walk from the main drag in Mindo. This is okay though, it is only a $1.50 cab ride from the main area to Mindo, so not bad. The hospitality was amazing, it is in Spanish so be prepared to speak...

A five minute walk from the central square in Mindo leads to this huge property originally owned by the founder of Mindo. It is referred to as "The Yellow House & Trails" and is very affordable.

Worth the six dollar per person fee to hike this property. Trails are well maintained and marked. There is a porch that you can enjoy many wonderful humming birds. The owners are very helpful. Trust their advice.

We recently spent 4 nights at the Yellow House/Hacienda San Vicente. My husband and I were travelling with our adult daughter, and we had 2 adjoining rooms, sharing the same bathroom. Very clean, comfortable, with great breakfasts served while enjoying the multitude of hummingbirds also having their breakfasts. Our daughter just moved to Quito, and she said that she would...

We stayed just one night here but had a great time. We stayed in the main building, and were the only people there that night. The staff was very friendly, the hikes from the property are plentiful, and there were minimal bugs.

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was one of the most relaxing places i have stayed. The yellow house its self is old on the outside but beautiful wooden floors on the inside.
