El Rocio - Hostel Mindo - Ecuador

Just a five-minute walk from the center of Mindo, El Rocio is a welcoming, creaky wooden hostel set among hummingbird-filled trees. The bedrooms on the first floor and the seven-bed dorm on the second floor smell musty, but they are clean, as are the shared bathrooms. However charming an all-wood house may be, the walls are very thin and it gets awfully noisy when people walk around with hiking shoes or even just talk loudly, so this hostel is a better bet on a quiet weekday than on a busy weekend. Owner Claudia speaks excellent English and can set up canopy tours, tubing and other activities for you. Claudia also features what she proudly calls "super breakfasts" for an additional $2.50.
