Loved our stay, will return again this year! The owner lives on the property and welcomed us with a big smile and an open heart. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Looking forward to come back to paradise soon again.

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 - especially considering that nearly all of the beaches/waterfronts on the islands are private so to be able to swim directly from your hostel was a big bonus.
However, the staff were really uninterested in helping/their job in general - they really did the bare minimum.
I stayed in a 6-bed which was perfectly fine and the shared showers were also adequate.
I was backpacking with a large group of friends and we're all pretty easy going so ultimately we had a good time. I wouldn't go back there myself as I felt that the island itself (including the hostel staff) just saw us as walking bags of money (especially all the people trying to convince you to go on boat trips). The room doors locked obviously but the hostel itself was pretty open so I didn't necessarily feel like it was that secure. However, I would feel comfortable in a group and would return for the beautiful setting!

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 diving board! Our room had lots of natural light but was a bit old. It was located right next to the bathroom and shower which could have both been cleaner. It was conveniently a short walk to many restaurants, tour offices and the water taxi stations.

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.
