We stayed 2 nights at Casa Verde in August 2014 in a private room with a double bed upstairs, on the street side. The restaurant area is great, with good ocean views. The food is good and the drinks are cheap. Live music played both nights we were there, and the party ended at around 11, so we could still...

I have stayed at casa verde many times when I visit bocas. Eddie and his family have done a lot of work in upgrading the facility. Stay in a private room and be sure to enjoy the bar and food downstairs right on the ocean. Staff goes out of there way to make you feel at home. Great value hammocks...

I really like staying at casa verde during the day. you have access to the sea, awesome hammocks and the food at the bar is delicious. drinks are reasonable and stuff is friendly. Only thing are the rooms. You could turn on the AC but not regulate, at least in the room I was staying. so it was very cold...

Not in the middle of the main area, but really nice located directly on the sea. Was there one evening. Beer for $1, Cocktails $5. Really good but expensive Chicken wings and french fries. Stuff was friendly. Good but much too loud live music, hammocks on a dock. Restrooms need an update. Would go there again.

I've stayed here several times when I visit Bocas. It's a basic hostel, not fancy and you need your own towel. I prefer the private room but the hostel atmosphere is the best in town. The waterfront location and restaurant are two more reasons to stay here. Make a reservation and see the room before you pay, standard practice everywhere...

I don't know why people like this place, I didn't have a good experience here. The staff were unhelpful, disinterested and generally made me feel unwelcome every time I asked a question or needed help. The hostel is conveniently located in Bocas town, a 5 min walk from where the boat docks. It's right on the water, and the hammocks...

Spent 3 months in Casa Verde this place is great! Right on the water, always a great vibe.. Be sure to get your $1tacos on tuesday & $1 beers all week. If you want to go diving or sit your open water this is the place to go! Good vibes good prices get on it!

Not sure why the reviews are all over the place for this hostel. Looks like there were some previous problems that have since been addressed. I was concerned about bed bugs, which seems to be a problem everywhere in Bocas. My room was clean, and I saw no signs of them. Good place with AC in the dorms, and waterfront...

yes i think there was a problem with the noise but now they stop the bar at 10pm, beachfront property so you can hang out and relax all day without moving and if you want so, well they have a front desk were you can pick a trip and awesome information.
