cascada verdem, constructed from a dark, warm bamboo and wood, is a beautiful open air hostel in the middle of the jungle. It has an incredible kitchen (this is important) with tons of materials.They have a beautiful common area which promotes making connections with other interesting and well traveled guests, and they have plenty of hammocks. Upon entering this jungle... More

Hostel Cascada Verde is an absolute paradise! Unlike other hostels I experienced in Costa Rica, Cascada Verde was clean, quiet, and hosted a diverse range of guests from young travelers to families to older couples. I was able to develop friendships with interesting people without contending with an overwhelming party atmosphere. The waterfall is very close, and I had a... More

Tucked way back up by the waterfall, this is a lovely place to spend a few days. The road is an obnoxious walk but I loved the place itself. The kitchen is really amazingly well equipped- we cooked dinner for ten while two other small groups made dinner for themselves. We weren't short on knives, plates, pans, or even sinks.... More

My wife and I stayed here after another hostel messed up our reservation with them. Julie was able to work with us last minute to accomate us. We stayed 5 days and never felt closer to home as Julie & her family made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped into the hostel. From the shared eating area, the... More

Even though we were in on a very tight schedule whilst travelling around Costa Rica, by the end of the first night we had already extended our stay. There's no way to fault Cascada Verde. The location is perfect, situated in the jungle (with surprisingly few bugs). You'll have opportunities to see some spectacular wildlife if you keep your eyes... More

We loved the hostel runned by Julie and her family. The sorroundings were fantastic and I felt the hotel was a truly eco meeting superb cleaniness (sometimes hotels confuse eco with dirt but it is not the case here). We were there with a 9year old girl who enjoyed the daily visit from the monkeys in the breakfast area. The... More

Is not about the nature or surroundings, they are beautiful. Costa Rica in general is beautiful!!! The hotel, formerly Cascada Verde Eco Lodge, a nightmare in service when we stayed. We decided to book several rooms for 4 nights, 5 rooms, 13 adults and 2 small children, for our annual family reunion. Breakfast paid too. Everything was handled via email... More

I had very mixed feelings about my stay at Cascada Verde. While it was warm and welcoming and set amidst a beautiful forest, there´s also a complete lack of privacy, a sense of isolation (can be good and bad), and you´re sure to emerge covered in bug-bites if you´re not careful. The following PROs and CONs are listed in order... More

Sorry for the kid's noise! But we don't know what to do if guests get up so early... And I checked our email conversation again: You were right! We said 16$. I feel very bad...

Peaceful, serene atmosphere, and open concept design. It was like staying on platforms in a forest tree-house. The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped, and there are lots of hammocks and quiet areas to enjoy the surroundings. A five minute walk to lovely waterfall and dips in the cascade pools costs only $1 per person, which goes to maintain... More
