The hostel is clean and very well located. It is near to the town center, and you can listen all the jungle birds singing early in the morning. The breakfast was very good, including fruits, bread and butter, and juice. I would recommended it it offers a nice stay for a good price. Watch out for the mosquitos! Mindo is... More

Our room was clean and spacious. The host was pleasant and provided anything we needed including a 3 hour birding tour and late checkout. Breakfast was huge and delicious. The location was perfect... walking distance from everything.

This hostel is well located and provides a comfortable place to stay in Mindo. The beds are pretty good and the shower was hot. Breakfast was pretty standard for Ecuador (eggs, bread and fruit). I agree with a previous review regarding improving the atmosphere but all in all it's pretty good.

Biohostal has spacious, comfortable rooms with great views. Good breakfast and great coffee. The best part was the staff - Nacer, Abbie, Aricely, Luis & expert bird guide Irman. They all are efficient, knowledgable, warm, friendly and eager to please. We had a wonderful time. Stay here!!!

Nice hostel to stay at for a night or two. Rooms are spacious and clean. The place has a homely feel about it, but that is mostly because of the people who run it. The building itself could use some more atmosphere, but they are still building.

We stayed here for five nights (booked four then decided to stay an extra). Everything about the hostel was no hassles. Staff were accommodating. They upgraded us to a bigger room as it was low season. Everything's a close walk (the town is small). And Irman the bird guide operates out of this hostel so it was easy to book... More

A hotel is more than a room. Bio Hostel has a special staff member ABBY. She makes sure that your stay at Bio Hostel is the best ever. Rooms are large, breakfast is great close to town center.All at a very affordable price. But Abby makes this hostel specia. Ask her to arrange anything for you and it is done.

We were given a huge room at a really good rate! Great big windows with a view, and a private bathroom with a BATH! Abby, Nacar, and Denis were lovely and helped us out a lot! Breakfast was great, rooms were cleaned daily, all in all we had a great stay.
