We had a 3 bunk bed room with private bath for our family of 4 (so even though this is a hostel, we had close to a hotel like experience). This hostel is extremely well run, clean, and staff is very helpful; there is free coffee in am and a great little back yard and roof terrace (also a fully... More

Hostel & hotel in the little adventure town of Turrialba. If your travelling to the Atlantic coast, white water rafting or just trying to get away from hustle and bustle of San Jose or where ever you may live this little place is a nice relaxing "get away"....the strong point is the not "service" but HOSPITALITY" of the people whom...

This hostel was kept quiet and clean. It has a well equipped kitchen. It is centrally located. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are a couple of nice outside sitting areas. The room was clean. The tv had cable channels. Air conditioning is not needed and a couple of blankets are supplied. I'd recommend this hostel. It has a... More

Great location in the centre of town, really helpful and friendly staff, spotless rooms with clean towels and cotton sheets, wet room, lovely garden and roof terrace with a view of the volcano...perfect. A lot of people come here for the rafting but I wish I'd had more time. Some great hiking to be done through indigenous villages and casa... More

Turrialba might not be a great hotspot, this hostel is! Tucked away in a small street in the centre this hostel from the outside looks rather small, once you get inside you will see it is not. First of all you will be greated by Liset, the owner or one of the staff members. We stayed in a dorm which... More

We stayed here for about 2 weeks in all and it was one of the nicest hostels in all our travels around central and south america. The private rooms were hotel standard!! When our finances wouldn't allow it, we used the dorm rooms,which were also very nice. It was spotless throughout and the kitchen was well equipped. The free coffee... More

Hostel Casa de Lis was the cleanest and nicest Hostel on our 3 month trip! They paid a lot of attention to detail (decoration, service and local information) that most hotels don't do, let alone Hostels!

Casa de lis was conveniently located in Turrialba. It was very easy to walk around and catch buses to explore the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful and helped in booking us in an amazing rafting trip down the pacuare with ticos rivers. There was also tons of information available at the hostel that helped us plan our... More

This is an amazing and clean place, Liz has done an excellent job at making this place a home away from home. The area has a few sodas close by where you can have a good and inexpensive bite to eat. The upstairs balcony is to die for.

clean, friendly, central and with an amazing view of the volcano from the roof. the little garden area behind is a great spot for breakfast, and Lis speaks multiple languages. there may not be much choice in Turrialba for hostels, but that doesn't mean they have let a monopoly go to their heads, and have created a really pleasant environment....
