This small hostel is great for people who don't want the noise of the Main Street and who don't want to listen to people party all night. There are no dorm rooms, a great kitchen and common area and the guys who run the place are really nice. If you stay in room #1 note that it does rain a... More

Nice quiet place, easy walk to where ever you need to go in town. Francesco is a great guy and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again! No complaints. Free eggs in the morning. Good Wi-Fi. Two happy Canadians here. Seemed to be a tad expensive but that`s Costa Rica for yah. Keep up the great work Francesco

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights. It was an okey place. We were the only guests at the time. The staff was nice but didnt speak much english. It is a really quiet place a bit away from the center. It was clean but kind of runned down with lots of worn out furniture and holes in... More

I had a great time staying here - i even wonder how Francesco is keeping such a low rates while all the accomodations around are like double or triple higher priced - and they dont have better rooms then Vista Verde, by the way. You can use kitchen, they have WONDERFUL coffee here for free, you can even use eggs... More

Now I had never been to Costa Rica but what a place. When I had arrived after a long 4 hour bus ride..I was beat. I took a taxi to the hostel and was immediately greeted by a young woman who would become my "English island in a sea of Spanish". Her name was Gift, her smile was broad and... More

I selected Vista Verde because of the ¨reservations without a credit card¨ feature which is offered through a booking site. Upon arrival, whereas I was very late, Francisco was welcoming and friendly. My upstairs room was quiet and breezy, No AC, but a fan was in the room. The full bed was clean and comfortable. Although the upstairs, shared shower... More

I suspect that one's experience of Vista Verde, and of many places in Puerto Viejo, depends much on the weather and on your expectations. Most important, the host Francesco is a very friendly Italian guy and there were a couple of other young people helping him who were also extremely friendly. It must be said that the accommodation is extremely... More

We had a great time with owner Francesco staying at Vista Verde. The place is clean, wonderfully set up, and has a really nice staff that was super helpful and kindhearted. We Extended our stay by a week based almost entirely on how great it was to hang out at Vista Verde. There are lots of hammocks to lounge in,... More

Stayed here in March after reading all the positive reviews on here. We were very disappointed. Our cabin was a tiny shack with gaping holes letting in the hundreds of mosquitoes which plague the place. The bed had a mosquito net with holes in it that was too small, so you couldn't help having your legs and arms touch the... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was a good size, and the patio was amazing with all of the hammocks. It is on a great piece of property, and the staff member, Gift, was very nice. The location was also great--easy to get to town and the beach. The price was very reasonable. There was drinking water available, and... More
