Located only a few blocks from the bus terminals, Hospedaje Dodero is a fine place to stay. The proprietors, Shawn and Jesus, have opened up their home to backpackers and are very helpful when it comes to planning your time there and your transportation elsewhere. As we were there during Semana Santa, the bus schedule was limited and we were... More

This is a great hostel. Affordable accommodation, clean, nice kitchen, cute small back yard and great staff. Jesus was so helpful with telling us where should we go and what should we do to make the most of our stay in Liberia. There are a lot to do so don't skip it.

While there isn't much going on in Liberia itself, this hostel is a great place to use as a base for exploring the area around the city. Shawn and Jesús are excellent hosts and super helpful for giving suggestions. We were definitely within easy access to nearby national parks and just a short bus ride away from the beach, both...

We only were in Liberia as a stop over on our journey to Monteverde. To be honest, I was a little underwhelmed by the city itself, but Shawn (the owner of the hospedaje) was such a treat. He gave us great information about where to eat near the hostel and how to sort out our early morning bus. All the... More

Pleasantly surprised with this friendly little hostel. Jesus and Sean were pleasant hosts, willing to help and accomodate. Clean rooms, compfy outdoor sitting areas as well as a well equipped common kitchen. The location is very convenient, being only a couple blocks away from market and bus station - three easy walking blocks from buses heading to airport or Playas... More

I highly recommend this nice little hospedaje in Liberia. The owners, Sean and Jesús, are very helpful and fun to talk to! Sean is a US expat, and Jesús is a Tico. The rooms are what you would expect for a hostel: simple with shared bathroom and kitchen, but very clean and overall a great value. There is a nice... More

The hosts Jesus and Shaun were very friendly, helpful, and professional. We enjoyed the small quaint outdoor cooking/visiting area. They offered suggestions of things to see and do in the area, and helped to arrange transportation, taxies, etc. It is located very close to the central bus station which was a very easy and cheap ride on the local bus...

The rooms are as expected in a hostel. Shower and toilets are shared. Shawn and Jesus were very helpful for organizing our trip. There's not much to do in Liberia but it was close to the bus station and stores. Backyard was nice with a communal kitchen and tables/chairs.

If you are looking for a cheap and good place to stay, I totally recommend Hospedaje Dodero! Stayed in a 4-bed dorm which was nice, even with tv (which we never used). There is also a small openair kitchen in the cute little backyard. But what I liked most is the staff! Jesus and Shawn make you feel at home... More
