“One of the very best”
Reviewed 3 February 2010

First I would like to thank the owners Rebecca, and Doug for their outstanding hospitality. Thank you both very much. My sister and I were lucky enough to have found out about La Casa Verde through hostelworld, though they are creating a great reputation for themselves amongst travelers on the "circuit." We were in Banos for 5 days, so we were able to see what some other accommodations looked like, and nothing even came close to this place. We always felt extremely safe here, and were made to feel right at home. Rebecca and Doug were more than willing to chat about the area, fun things to do, where to hike, places to see etc. The breakfasts were amazing, fresh fruits, juice & coffee, and my sister is still talking about the granola. I for one had an affinity for the homemade brownies, and the granola bars. This place is super clean, and very quite, making it a very relaxing atmosphere. I was extremely impressed with the water pressure, and temperature of the showers. As many fellow travelers know sometimes it can be awhile before we have a good shower, so this was a nice surprise. I really can't say enough good things about La Casa Verde, we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. I would recommend staying here to anyone, especially those seeking a homey, relaxing experience. Thanks again Rebecca, Doug, and John (their adorable son,) you have created an amazing place for all travelers.

Three of us arrived from Quito after spending several nights at a hostel in Mindo that was misrepresented by the photos and information on line (enough said). So, we were primed for another low end hostel when we drove into Banos. However, La Casa Verde Ecolodge was the antithesis of our earlier experience. The place lives up to its name in that the owners have gone out of their way to accomplish sustainable development. The lodge is set on the outskirts of Banos and is somewhat difficult to find. But, the place is a dream. The room (triple) was immaculate and nicely decorated. The breakfasts were amazing...fresh baked bread, homemade granola, tasty fruits, coffee, juice. Wow! The best part of the place was Doug, Rebecca and their son John, who were so warm and welcoming. We even got a hug and kiss on the cheek upon our departure. Suffice it to say that most of the places we´ve stayed over the past month in Ecuador and Peru don´t come close to providing the warmth, comfort, and services of La Casa Verde. When you consider the cost, its a true bargain and a delightful stay.

Our 5 day reservation at Casa Verde turned into 11 days, and even then we didn't want to leave. It was, without a doubt, our favourite hostel in all of South America and definitely excllent value for money! Clean rooms, comfortable beds, hot, powerful showers, lovely kitchen facilities and the breakfast was delicious and easily extended into a long brunch. Rebecca and Doug, the ownners, really made us feel at home and they are also very well informed about everthing to do in the local area, especially in regards to less touristy walks near the hostel. We loved the fact that Casa Verde is practically next door to Spa Resort El Refugio which offers a selection of very relaxing treatments at cheaper prices than the places in town. Casa Verde is a gorgeous house, with stunning views and we totally enjoyed drinking glasses of wine and munching Rebecca's brownies as we watched DVD's from their vast collection in the evenings. It was also refreshing to find a place which takes care of the environment. The fact that it is slightly outside of town adds to the overall charm of the location, and getting in and out of town is easy. I cannot recommend Casa Verde enough, we're definitely going back.

La Casa Verde is a comfortable, clean eco hostal. Breakfast is full of delicious home made breads, granola, fresh juice, yogurt and assorted teas/coffee (great brownies!). Rooms are spacious and have lovely views of the mountains and river. The future patio will be a great addition. Located outside of town which is nice, however need for taxi is recommended when going into town, esp at night.

If you care about our planet and get frustrated while traveling at the ability to stay green, stay at La Casa Verde in Banos, Ecuador. Their recycling and compost efforts help travelers stay green while the amazing owners cook organic, local foods in their cozy abode with little carbon footprint. Not to mention the fabulous location along the river with lush plants enveloping your sense of nature. A+++

This was a great place to stay. Homemade granola bars and brownies. Fresh fruit and granola made for a killer breakfast. We had so much fun here. I'll definitely be back! Thank you so much for the information about things to do in and around Banos and the great hospitality.
