Property Description

¡Hola! Hello! Hallo!
We are looking forward to meeting you soon at Cascada Verde Hostel in Uvita, Costa Rica!

Our hostel is like a huge tree house, welcoming guests from all over the world to relax and enjoy our facilities:
Plenty of comfy furniture is provided to get some rest while travelling.
We have a really big communal kitchen, fully equipped for everyone's use.
You can spot Costa Rican wildlife right from one of our terraces and enjoy our stunning jungle (+ a bit of ocean) view!
But please note: We are NO party hostel and lights are turned off at 10pm ;-)

We, a German family from Berlin, realized our dream to live in the jungle and are happy to share our home with you.

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 per person.
Basics like coffee, tea, salt, 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!

    The beds weren’t very comfy, but we loved the ambiance, the breakfast and everyone we encountered, people that worked there AND the guests. I don’t think my back can handle staying there again tho.

    This is my first solo trip and first hostel stay and it was beyond amazing! This place is like staying in a giant treehouse and the atmosphere is wonderful! I made friends the first night there and we played card games and jenga for hours. The dorms are comfortable, and safe! The kitchen is huge and has every cooking dish you could ask for! I was only supposed to be there 2 night but ended up Staying 4. 10000% recommend this to anyone looking for a truly immersive friendly hostel!

    This was an incredible hostel experience. The hostel is located up the hill on a very steep dirt road. The hostel itself is an entirely open concept with all wooden structures. The view is incredible. The rooms are small but comfortable. There is limited privacy as the walls do not fully meet the ceilings and most are simply covered by screens. There are mosquito nets included and there are some jungle bugs. The staff is incredible. Overall, an amazing, unique experience!

    Really cool hostel. Good atmosphere. I had a private room, and it was not really very private…walls did not go to ceiling. Also you really need a car…probably at any hostel near here

    Awesome stay, The place has treehouse vibes, the settup is great, a bunch hammocks, all in wood. Really feels like you’re in the middle of the jungle. Place is clean, they even give you towels. The vibe is chill, not party but to relax. Definitelly had a good time and would stay again.

    Amazing location in the jungle and great common area. Keep in mind that the supermercado is a 15min walk or 2000 Colones taxi ride away. Dorms and facilities are rather basic.

    Very Good

    My stay here went fairly smoothly. The public spaces are unique and large as is the kitchen. Overall it could be a LOT cleaner especially the bathrooms. They were busy during my stay and the staff (only the ticks) were helpful. The rest of their crew was haughty and confused. Do not stay here unless you have a car. I have stayed at five star hotels and many hostels. I like hostels. The private room not really private, mosquito nets with massive holes and disgusting bathrooms truly nonfunctional.

    We were placed down in the basement of another house because there was no space. The door could not be closed to the room, which was dirty, spiders in the ceiling, damp and dirty bedding and a huge hole in the mattress - the worst hostel we have slept in for 2 months. The next day we confronted the owner, but she would not accommodate us, so we found another hostel. The fencing area is cozy and the kitchen is fine, but the way we were treated was unacceptable.
