We stayed two nights at the Bio Hostal. We were we happy with the stay. This is a family run venture. Found the owners to be very warm and welcoming with excellent customer service. The Building and the rooms are well maintained and art work of wild life brings character to the location. I must not forget the delicious breakfast...

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. I stayed on the top floor because these had the best views - really fantastic, actually! The room itself was of a decent size with a separate bathroom also of a nice size....

We stayed three nights here over New Year. It's run by a really friendly family who were extremely nice and helpful. On New Year's Eve they even gave free cocktails to all the guests! The free breakfast was probably the best we had anywhere in Ecuador - fresh fruit salad with yogurt and granola, plus freshly cooked eggs and bread,...

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!!!
