We had such a lovely time at Bio Hostal! The family that runs the hostel are so kind and accommodating. They helped us to book all the activities that we wanted to do and were so helpful.

I stayed one night at this hostel so I could do the cascades trail the next morning. The price is very good for what you get in return. It's not fancy, but it has a great eco and relaxing vibe (it fits its purpose). The staff were very service oriented and friendly, also breakfast was fresh and delicious. One of... More

Here you get the best value for money in whole Mindo. Very helpful and nice staff. Great kitchen if you like to cook. Everything is quite new and spacious. Only 1 minute away from the main road but really tranquil. We'll be back...

The Bio Hostal is located in the small town of Mindo. There are two floors plus the ground floor with the accomodations on the top two floors.
