I really wanted to like this place because it’s gorgeous. Although the woman who owns the place is incredibly rude and had a really stressed out vibe. It was pretty enough that we decided to stay. We rented a room with its own bathroom hoping for a little privacy. You can literally hear the people next to you snoring. You can hear every single word of their conversation. Every single word. I might as well have been in a tent. Thank god the people next to me weren’t having sex cus I am sure I would have heard every single deep breath too. Not an even slightly romantic place. The walls don’t go all the way up so if you are up past dark you get swarms of beetles and other bugs flying towards the light and you have to battle with bugs under your mosquito net. The place is pretty and all but the price you pay for a private room is NOT worth it. You can go to Hotel Laurels or Sueños Tranquilos and get a real room (with real walls), a lovely trails, a pool, lovely staff, nice vibes FOR the SAME Price as a private room at Cascada Verde The wifi is bad too... really bad. I guess if you are going to dorm it up this place is fine but as a couple it was not worth half the money we spent. I’m usually pretty chill when it comes to travelling. I’ve been travelling for over 10 years all over Latin America. And although Costa Rica is one of the most expensive countries to travel in, there is still a standard for what something is worth based on what is close by, available etc.

Cascada Verde is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in so far. We spend a few nights there and Julie's friendliness made our stay very pleasant! Every morning she was there to say hi and was giving precious advice about the activities in the area. This hostel is a sort of a giant tree house, open to the forest. When the sun goes down, you can ear all the noises of the forest, birds, monkeys and all the wild life. That makes the place magical! The kitchen is FANTASTIC you can cook whatever you want, there's even an oven! And two blenders! I have never seen a kitchen in a hostel so well equipped! The place is quiet and absolutely appropriate having yoga classes with Manassah. She is also proposing massages - everything is made for relaxation. If you visit Uvita, you have to visit this place!

To start, the hostel is nice in and of itself.the location is great if you don’t mind taking a cab, renting a car, or walking. Multiple waterfalls are very close and the general town of uvita is only a short walk down the hill. Very beautiful views from the top deck as well. The private rooms seemed to vary despite them all costing the same. Our group rented two, one had a shower, toilet, and lots open space, the other was in basically a cement room with two beds under reception. Smelled very musty and didn’t feel clean compared to the other room for the same price. The biggest issue and reason behind a two star review was the staff. I have never received such rude and patronizing treatment from any source of customer service than we did here! Initially the two women who seem to own it were nice and helpful but did seem annoyed and confused at any questions we asked. At first I wasn’t sure if it was a language barrier although they did seem to speak Spanish, English, and what I assume was German or Swedish. I can understand how a group of American women may be expected to be dumb or uncultured but we really were trying our best to speak a common language and and be polite and easygoing when asking for help. Each breakfast comes with a plate of fruit per person, regardless of what you order, but if you order with another person you only receive one plate. Not really a big deal, but consistency would be appreciated for the price and it did feel like they were skimping you out of food if you were eating with another person. I mentioned this and got a very rude and snappy reply from one of the women. After that they were ALL rude and snappy to our entire group of 6 women. They seemed to deliberately “forget” to call a taxi when we would request one and put a deposit down. Also kept our deposits twice when they are supposed to be returned once the taxi arrives. I have never had a person begin a counter genuinely sigh when asked a question but these guys would almost every time! It felt as though they were bothered by our very presence in the hostel. Eye rolling, sighing, and simply just ignoring our questions! It is a shame since the stay was enjoyable due to good views and a yummy breakfast. But if you want to feel comfortable and welcomed during your stay and not get skimped on what you pay for, I would not recommend this hostel!

I didn't book this place, a peer did. we arrived to 3-4 yapping dogs who continued to bark throughout our stay. there might have been some night time hours when they were not barking. The first thing I notice is everyone's shoes spread out on the floor reaching more than a yard into the front passageway. Moving forward through a hallway full of backpacks and snack food displays and endless used books you reach the counter. I made it known i needed a room without stairs so I was placed in the "basement" room which is actually the first floor, but calling it the "basement room"gives a better description. It is a damp, smelly concrete room near the front door. Pros: after you move through the hostel to the front you are in a beautiful jungle setting with all the sounds and sights. truly gorgeous IMO. the mattress was comfortable, there was a fan and a dedicated shower bathroom, very hostel like but at least not dirty or moldy, so that's a plus. cons: it's right behind the kitchen area's bank of 5 huge commercial refrigerators and their growling motors, which are with you as long as you are in that room. If you are emf sensitive, you won't like it. Also the aforementioned kitchen area, which is great for budget travelers, contains lots of garbage receptacles, all with lids but i have to wonder if the smelly issue isn't related to the proximity to the kitchen. speaking of which, I needed ice. No ice available. I was directed to a tiny freezer to place my freezable plastic cooler thing. the next day it was not frozen. there was still no ice anywhere. It was essential to keeping my insulin cool. As mentioned previously, the dogs. Also constant noise. I expected to at least be able to rest but this wasn't the place for that. Not their fault.The floor above must have its bathroom right above this concrete dungeon room as you will often hear the flushing toilet and running shower, as you try to go to sleep at "quiet time" which is the only 8 hours this place gets anywhere close to quiet. My fault. I should have vetted it. thought it might be useful to warn someone like me that this a paradise for budget travelers (mostly youngish and without chronic health conditions) who need very little in the way of comfort or care. If that describes you, you will love it! etc: you are limited to one towel per day.

A hostel/hotel, this was out last stop during our time in Costa Rica and what a location it is!! Our group all had rooms with our own showers and toilets, everything was very simple and basic but at the end of the day this is all you really need, a good bed to sleep in and a tidy environment. They do operate a quite time between 10pm and 6am so if you were in a Male or Female dorm you should get peace and quiet. The surrounding grounds are beautiful and on our last day the monkeys and the Cayman crocodile all made an appearance!! It was amazing just to sit on the edge of the building and watch the wildlife play in it's natural surroundings. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, we also had breakfast on each day of our short stay, this was also very good. To be honest it's hard to put this place into words, it's different, it's at one with nature, it's just beautiful, it's simple and it works!! Just look at the pictures!!
