Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Central location between bus transport and city core. Nice and easy walk through vendors selling various tropical fruits. Clean premises, number of hamocks to relax and a terrace. Carlos was very attentive and made sure everything was ok. Carlos even got his brother to drop me off at Mezapan for my trip across the border to Copan, Honduras.

I’ve been to Waldorf Astoria, Four Seasons, Steigenberger but this one is the best I’ve been so far. The owner should become the President of this beautiful country. Carlos and the stuff thanks for making me the best stay in a hostel I ever had! Breakfast 10/10 Kindness 10/10 Cleanliness 10/10 Recommendation 100/10!!!

We stayed 3 nights at the casa verde in Santa Ana, which we used as a base to visit the Ruta De Las Flores and Santa Ana Volcano/Lago De Coatepeque. Around 10 years and 25 countries ago my wife and I stayed in a Hostel in Mount Aso, Japan which we thought was the best hostel we have ever stayed in. That was until we visited this place. It’s hard to begin to explain why this hostel is so enjoyable - its certainly not covered in gold leaf. It is just a place where it is a clear that a lot of forethought has gone into creating a space that satisfies all of the needs of the guest. This is paired with superb hospitality by the owner Carlos, who clear knows his craft. In summary here are the pros * ROOMS - We stayed in room 12 which I think is actually the nicest of all the private rooms (appears to be a new construction). It had a very comfortable bed, good functional air conditioning, a rainfall shower with endless hot water. The toilet was separated from the shower and we had a atrium area with steel shelving to stack our stuff, as well as a couple of bag stands. The power sockets featured USB ports for charging our phones. There was a TV inside also. * WIFI - Quite high speed. We were able to update our iCloud for the first time in 2 weeks (couldn’t get good connectivity in Guatemala) and I was also able to redownload a bunch of content from Netflix/Stan that had expired. * SECURITY - Santa Ana is a gritty city and not one that I would want to wander around at night. This hostel felt very safe with a large steel door that locked the only entrance into the premises (only the staff allow people in). Our rooms all locked and the one window in our room was covered with large steel bars. * BAR/RESTAURANT ON SITE - Kind of fitting with the above the restaurants and bars in Santa Ana aren’t located close together and once night falls you don’t want to be on the streets wandering between them so to have a tasty and well priced bar/restaurant on the premises was a big bonus. We ate here on two of the nights and the food was great. * LAUNDRY SERVICE - They offer a laundry service where you pay based on number of items. I believe we paid 10USD for 77 items of clothing. It was also appreciated that they dry these on the clothes line in the terrace rather than through a dryer that damages the clothes. * SHARED FACILITIES - We had a swim in the pool which was clean. It has a shared and well stocked kitchen although I didn’t use this. There was a honesty fridge set up in which one can purchase beers, soft drinks and waters. You just place your name on the whiteboard and what you took and settle the bill at the end. There was a rooftop terrace which overlooked the city. There was a information board with information on local attractions and bus connections. I believe they can also organise tours here although I cannot comment on this. * LOCATION - Within walking distance to the main plaza which featured the Santa Ana cathedral and theatre. * BREAKFAST - Included in the price this was served in the on site restaurant and was both large and delicious. It varied slightly each day but usually consisted of a main meal, yoghurt, fruit and tea/coffee. It was large enough that it would carry us to dinner. * CLEAN * HOSPITALITY - Carlos is a fantastic guy and speaks English. He is very friendly and they go out of their way to make sure you have a nice stay. We actually had a difficult connection from Guatemala where the company somewhat screwed us over, getting us in at 2000 at night and dropping us of at a supermarket 4km from the hostel instead of the central station. We were able to message Carlos who sent his nephew to pick us up free of charge which was extremely appreciated, as we did not want to walk the streets at night with all of our stuff. Overall this was a fantastic place to stay and I would have no hesitation recommending it to others.

I’ve stayed in hostels around the world and can’t remember ever leaving a review, but Casa Verde was such a good experience- so clean, so comfortable, such a good energy- that I just had to. Thank you Carlos for being so warm and accommodating! I stayed in the mixed dorm and was so impressed with everything.

I can think of no way to improve upon this hostel. Everything was clean. Breakfast was good. The proprietor Carlos is a gem. It's his house and he lives on site so he makes sure things run smoothly. We were very happy with this hostel. This Karen could find nothing to complain about. Five stars!

Excellent staff and services at a very reasonable price. They have a wine bar and good food. The Owner Carlos speaks perfect English and is a wealth of information. He is awesome and laid back. The Hostel has an English speaking driver named Davis. He can take you anywhere you want to go and accompanies you to translate. Spent a week here and didn’t want to leave.

Carlos, the owner, is the hardest working hostal owner ever. I peppered him so many questions before ever leaving on my trip and he answered them all. When I actually stayed at Casa Verde I had more questions and, again, he had time in his busy schedule to help me out. He even took the time bring myself and some friends to his favourite breakfast stall at the market! The hostal itself is very nice. I stayed in a private room and enjoyed the room, pool, kitchen, rooftop patio, food and other travelers I was lucky enough to meet there. All in all it was a great experience. A big thank you to Carlos and his staff!

Not enough stars to rate this place. Carlos the owner has literally thought of everything. I stayed in the dorm and the beds are super comfortable with a luggage rack for your bag, fan above the bed, power outlets in the lockers and a nice long mirror in the ladies bathroom as well as super hot showers. The kitchen has all you need to cook up a great meal, lots of spices on hand however I must admit I didn’t use it much since the on-site restaurant serves mouth watering food and has a great wine selection. Try the lomo, you will not be disappointed by the quality and price. Carlos ensures all his guests are comfortable and have all the information they need. Fabulous place to stay im Santa Ana. Thank you Carlos and staff!

Clean hostel, and met fellow traveller there. There is restaurant but we did not eat there. Swimming pool available. Ten minutes walking distance to the main plaza. Carlos and staff are very welcoming. Ah, recommended that you reserve via their own website, more flexible term with better rate.

A little gem in the middle of elegant, yet somewhat adventurous Santa Ana. Owner Carlos runs this hostel/hotel with a lot of enthusiasm and can really help you out with trips or finding a bus to your next destination. The food and wine at his bar is great, and make sure he tells you where to get pupusas!
