Hosteria Kumbha Mela - Hostel Mindo - Ecuador

Hosteria Kumbha Mela is a sprawling compound of cabins and rooms located across the road from Rio Mindo. The hostel is a good option for those who want more of a solitary retreat and can afford to pay a bit more for the privilege. The five cabins, which range in capacity from two to eight people, feature their own private porches with hammocks. Kumbha Mela also has a lodge, with seven dorm rooms and space for 16 people, which faces a heated, outdoor swimming pool. Kumbha Mela is closer to the main attractions (tubing, canopy tours and hikes in the Santuario de Cascadas) than many of its competitors, but the hostel is also a kilometer walk from restaurants in Mindo.

The hostel has a secure parking area and an on-site bar and restaurant; the staff can arrange visits to the area attractions. A sauna, Turkish bath and hydro massage are in the planning stages. Since space at the Kumbha Mela is limited, particularly during weekends, the owners recommend you make reservations ahead of time.
