Very cozy place that feels like home after a very short while. Nice staff, good prices, very clean, cool kitchen and super comfortable rooms. The owner is a really cool guy. Couldn't have demanded better. Plus, it's right by the bus station!

This place is in a very handy spot for future travel, is extremely clean, and has excellent hosts. Jesus and Shawn will provide you with any info you need, and can provide maps and/or transportation to some truly beautiful spots in the area. It also has a nice common area and kitchen, and an absolutely lovely dog, which add to... More

Sean and Jeśus have developed a fantastic little hostel within easy walking distance from major shops and services. The beds were comfy and rooms had either fans or AC - very welcome in the Costa Rican heat! The rooms and bathrooms were immaculate - a rarity in my travels. Their dinner advice was spot on (the Peruvian restaurant around the... More

We stayed for 3 nights here in December 2014. The hostel is closely located to both the bus terminals and the centre is a few blocks but not too far. A huge supermarket is also close which is a great help for the budget backpacker. The in and out buzzer is fine and gives you assurance that the hostel is... More

Although Liberia isn't much of a place to visit, it is a great jumping off point for other sites and only about 150m from the main bus station. Jesus has all of the details and suggestions you could need for trips to Ricon de la Vieja, Playa Cocos, Tamarindo and basically any other spot in Guanacaste. The rooms are small... More

Ultimately, I was all alone in Costa Rica but it definitely did not feel that way here. Not only was Jesus and his staff great. The other hostel mates turned out to be really awesome people from all over the world; with one mission in mind to see Costa Rica. Jesus would give me ideas on what I could do... More

Great hostel! Very convenient location a short walk from the bus station with a laid garden and open air kitchen. The owner, Jesus is awesome! Super friendly and super knowledgeable. He took us on the waterfall tour and it was amazing! Breathtaking views, pristine pools, awesome cliff jumping, we even got to see a family of howler monkeys- a great... More

I've heard from many people that Liberia is "just a bus stop." The owner of this hostel, Jesus, proves that completely wrong. Not only is the hostel clean and accommodating, but Jesus truly wants you to have a great time while in Liberia. While staying there he gives you tons of information on where to go and what to do...... More

I really enjoyed my time at Hospedaje Dodero! The hosts were super helpful and kind and gave us tons of information about Costa Rica and on stuff to do around Liberia. I loved the backyard of the patio and the nice hammock in the front, Cleo the dog and the cat! It felt like we were guests at someone's home... More

Hospedaje Dodero is a gem. Jesús and Sean are incredible hosts and are on hand to give advice, counsel, and humor. They are caring, gracious people and hosts and are running a fine establishment. They are close to a lot of places to eat, a bank, a grocery store... And moreover they give everyone a map so you don't even... More
