La Casa Verde was easily our favorite hostel of our 8 weeks of travel through South America. We originally booked for 3 nights, but couldn't bring ourselves to leave...ended up staying 7! Our huge superior double room was heaven on earth - sunny, airy, and well decorated with earthy colors and natural fabrics. Think: Eco-chic but without pretense. Bathrooms awesome (soft towels, homemade soaps) and the shower...oooh that shower: Great water pressure and eeeendless hot water. We loved it. Breakfast was also a highlight: good coffee, fresh juices, fruit salads, thick, warm slices of homemade bread with cheeses, avocado, tomatoes and a myriad of homemade jams...and lest I forget my personal favorite: the homemade coconut granola. Mmmm...
Doug and Rebecca are friendly, down-to-earth hosts and are easy to approach with questions. Upon check-in, they provide guests with a pamphlet that contains a variety of tips regarding the town's offerings (such as nightlife, restaurants, hikes, canyoning, horseback riding tours, etc.), which, they will gladly arrange for you if you ask. Also, they don't take a commission from any of the eco-tourism operators in the town, so expedition prices are as cheap as if booked alone. Finally, another bonus worth mentioning is their in-house massage facilities - I booked a 1 hour session/$25 with their private masseuse and it was Aaamazing.
