I would return to this hostel just for the perfect setting. The hostel is on decking right on the water front so you can just stroll out of your room and dive straight into the water. There were hammocks along the waterfront in the common area so you can just laze about there. It really was a perfect setting -... More

I spent a week at Casa Verde and in the time span of four days I was able to become Advanced AND Rescue certified! The staff was always extremely helpful and the dives were some of the best I've seen!

We are disappointed that we only stayed here for one night, because Casa Verde has a great location on the main island, is right on the water and has a cool vibe. Apparently they are undergoing renovations, so we did not get to use the hammocks shown in the pictures. We did however, jump off the dock and the high... More

We didn't stay here, but stumbled across it and kept coming back to hang out! The staff were all super friendly. We went out on a scuba boat with them one day, and also caught a water shuttle here to go over to Red Frog Island for the day.

Love this hostel so much I recommend it over and over. It has a great reputation for good reason. Professional, efficient and very friendly. They serve excellent food with cheap prices and have great live music in the evenings. My personal favorite being the 50cent wing nights Wednesday and Saturday!

We stayed here for four nights in a private room with shared bathroom (35 dollars). Simple and clean rooms. Great location and the ocean view was wonderful. We really liked it here. The dive shop is in the same place and they also had a restaurant with some veggie options:) The food could take some time but not that it... More

This hostel is awesome.. Keep in mind you're on a small island in the middle of the caribbean nothing is always the cleanest but it's all about character and this place has a lot of it... They run the dive centre of here so if you want to get your ticket this is a good place to go! They $1... More

Went for lunch and only 2 other tables had people in the restaurant. Took 40 minutes to get black bean soup (fine) and a burger that was overcooked and dried up. Server could not figure out who the food was for although bar tender who took the order was right there.

I stayed here for five nights with friends, and from the start there were problems. The staff couldn't find our reservation, and one of the two bathrooms on site was not operating. It's hard not to be charmed by the waterfront location, though as the week wore on, the management was increasingly difficult and unorganized. We had to change rooms... More

This hostel is, literally, on the water. You can jump off the back deck right into the crystal clear water and swim up to starfish. LITERALLY. Not only that, the whole hostel is built ON the water, so as you wake up, you heat the waves crashing under your floor. Pretty cool eh?! The air conditioning worked well, so that... More
