The rooms are standard. No more than what you pay for. There are a lot of mosquitos. The window has to stay opened because it's so hot and there isn't a screen. The mosquito net over the bed has holes in it and it isn't large enough for the double bed anyways so you probably won't use it. They said...

We had a spacious room facing the backyard, which looked like a dump, but actually had a lot of birds and other animals in it. We saw both a toucan, an iguana and poison dart frogs from the window. The hostel is clean, and the shared toilets and showers were always fresh.

When traveling to Puerto Viejo, I made the reservations for my group of 6 friends for this hostel and was very nervous that we would regret not staying in a place like Rocking J's like other students that were visiting as well - Safe to say, we did not regret it one bit. I haven't slept so well since starting...

My friend and I booked this hostel last minute for our final nights stay in Puerto Viejo before heading out. We were pleasantly surprised by this place as we were only looking for something that fit our budget. We showed up to a cute little bungalow tucked away off the main road which was very nice so that we wouldn't...

We had a really good stay at Vista Verde! Rooms are basic, but well kept and equipped with mosquito nets which is a plus. The common kitchen is GREAT with lots of equipment, free use of spices, oils etc. There are nice outdoors common areas surrounded by a beautiful garden and lots of hammocks! The whole hostel, including the kitchen,...

This is a quirky and funky place, ideal if you are into yoga and or surfing. Francisco is very accommodating. His mum is super sweet. The shared kitchen is well equipped and clean. The rooms are basic but do have mosquito nets which is great. There is a hot shower but there is a risk of being electrocuted so I...

Very nice place, stayed four nights. Everything is kept clean, which must be difficult in the jungle environment and gives you an idea of the work that is put in. Francesco is very laid back and easy going, willing to help out and accommodate in any way he can. Also an excellent distance from town - far enough away to...

Thank you guys for dedicating some of your time to review vista verde, you are right, its not easy to keep a place in the jungle clean and that is our main goal, we are trying to give a clean and comfortable accommodation for a reasonable price and sometimes in this kind of environment its really an issue, you are...

First of all the positive things: The rooms were clean and pretty spacious. Mosquito nets were installed. It was quite at night. Unfortunately the negative things outweighed the positive ones: The owner has a mentally unstable dog that tried to bite me in the very beginning and rushed on a couple two time without reason. When I told the owner,...

Hi, thank you for taking the time to write a review for vista verde, thanks for your appreciation about the rooms that you found suitable and clean in fact we put a lot of effort in keeping it clean because in this jungle environment it's really necessary and not so easy. we do have a guard dog for general safety,...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Good location in P.V. Great value. Super helpful friendly host. Nice spaces to chill out. Showers are a bit hit and miss and kitchen could be a little cleaner. Otherwise enjoyed staying here immensely.

I am the Founder of WOCHR and we recently had our women's retreat and some of our instructors lodged at vista verde and they had a wonderful experience. The rooms are lovely, the hammocks are great to stretch in, we also held a yoga class at Vista Verde Guest House it was perfect. Highly recommended !
