Property Description

Thank you for your interest in staying with us or for your already made reservation!
We are looking forward to meeting you soon at Cascada Verde Hostel in Uvita, Costa Rica.
We, a German family from Berlin, realized our dream to live in the jungle and are happy to share our home with you!
We take care for a warm and relaxed atmosphere, plenty of comfy furniture is provided to get some rest while travelling.
You can spot plenty of Costa Rican wildlife right from one of our terraces and enjoy our stunning jungle (+ a bit of ocean) view!

Here is some hopefully helpful information about directions
and useful tips for your stay at our Hostel by the Waterfall...


Please note:

- Our reception is open from 8am to 8pm.

- We accept cash and credit cards but have to charge a fee for card and PayPal payments.
You can pay in both currencies: Costa Rican Colones ₡ or US $ (or sometimes €).

- We have a big and fully equipped kitchen for everyone's use at our hostel
and we serve a delicious breakfast for $5-7 per person.
Basics like coffee, tea, salt, pepper, sugar, soy oil are also provided.
(Cooking is possible between 6am and 9pm.)

We recommend buying your groceries as soon as you arrive in central Uvita
because there is no proper supermarket closer than the SP Supermarket downtown.

Of course there are good restaurants nearby but you'll have to walk at least a few minutes to get there.

- Our hostel building is pretty open: Ceilings are not closed and everything is made out of wood.
Which gives it a very special atmosphere and that's why most guests love it here
but please keep in mind that privacy is - let's say: limited.

- Traveling with small children: Please check our pictures - as you can see, our terraces don't have railings and the building isn't soundproofed at all.
Please consider choosing a different accommodation if your child could be too "wild" for our construction. Thanks in advance!

- We have many dogs and cats.
We need them to keep unpleasant visitors out.
We just hope you are not allergic or scared...And that's the reason why we can not accept your pets, sorry!

- Yoga classes are offered by arrangement at our upper terrace deck:
Please sign in with reception if interested (yoga $10pp).

Important note for reservations longer than 5 nights: We will require a PayPal payment.


What to bring:
- It gets dark up here - please bring a flashlight!
- Between April and mid December it's good to have an umbrella.
- Mosquito nets are provided but you can also hang your own.
  (Luckily we don't have many mosquitos...)


Please keep in mind:
As you hopefully know we are located in the jungle
and yes, there are bugs up here! Not many but some.
It can happen that you see a snake or a scorpion.
It does not happen very often, because they don't like people,
but it is a possibility... So far nobody got hurt ;-)


About whale-watching-tours here in Uvita:
Please check the whale season months if you only come to see whales!
As far as we know whales are here from mid July to mid October,
hopefully coming back at the end of December and staying until February.
Naturally, things can change so please contact us or a tour operator in Uvita
before you book your accommodation!
By the way: Dolphins are usually around all year round
and the snorkeling around Caño Island or hiking through the Corcovado National Park is great anyway!


A general tip for Costa Rica:
Bring a copy of your passport!
There are often police controls and they might want to see your passport -
but if you go to the beach, you better bring nothing more than a towel and swimming gear -
there is many small thievery Costa Rica, especially at the beach.
That's why it's better only to bring a copy of your passport when you go out...


Of course you can call or email us for further questions.

See you soon at Cascada Verde!
Safe travels!

    We LOOOOOVED this place!!! If you want some peace and quiet and to get in touch with nature and unplug for a bit this place is perfect. I can’t even explain how much we loved the vibe of this place! We will be back for sure! Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer.

    Only spent one night there, so can't speak for the town and location, but the hostel structure is absolutely amazing, all I could wish for is if there were more hostels like this. Felt very welcome, great owners!

    LOVED this place! Set back away from the town but we liked that. The hostel is very well set up, kitchen is fantastic and staff are amazing. I enjoyed yoga in the mornings on the top deck overlooking the pond. Waterfall just a 5 min walk away. Would highly recommend to all that don’t want a party hostel. A*

    I was originally scheduled to just stay for 2 nights that turned into 6. I took a point off for location because it's a ways out from town. I had a car and actually preferred that it was off the beaten path and quiet. Every time I went to extend my stay they were very accommodating especially the last night when due to some super unlucky timing on my part the bed I was in got booked but they offered me to stay in one of the private rooms. All in all an amazing experience. I would live there!

    Lovely hostel near the waterfall, amazing jungle and sea view from their big, open terrace. I really loved staying there, the private rooms are very nice. They did their best to keep everything very clean, but it also depends on the travelers and how they treat the facilities - Never flush toilet paper in Costa Rica! They offer a nice breakfast for 7$. The city center of Uvita is a 20 minute walk from the hostel, but we just loved the area and the jungle around the hostel, it was worth the walk!

    Beautiful hostel. Would be awesome if they had a daily shuttle to and from the town - the walk isn’t long but it’s hot.

    I can’t say anything bad about a place that internet speed tests to 60mbs at night time. The top deck area with the hammocks, view and chairs is really awesome. The only thing that would really be awesome is a shuttle or atv/bicycle rental to go into town and get groceries.

    The location and environment were very nice. Great kitchen except it seemed to always be busy so we ate out more than we planned to. Our room didn't have a fan so it was really hot at night so sleeping was a challenge (obviously no air conditioning either). The hostel was great but we wouldn't stay again due to the hotness of our room with no fan.

    Very Good

    The setting of Cascada Verde is incredibly beautiful and peaceful. The atmosphere is very chill and comfortable. It's like being in a treehouse almost, with so much beautiful nature around. The owners were a bit grouchy but the other staff was kind and helpful. The accommodations are simple but clean and comfortable. Upstairs rooms are quite noisy when people walk around. We enjoyed it and would probably return.
