Stayed just for a night. Rooms were clean, good location for buses to other places. Has kitchen but with barley any utensils. Rooms were clean but we didn't have A/C as advertised. Not many others there so was very quiet. Overall good for a night or two but not much longer.

Thank you for writing a review. We are pleased that you found the hostel clean and comfortable. I was concerned about your comment that you did not receive a room with AC although you thought you had reserved one. I checked your reservation and you reserved a room with fan. Had you brought up your concern at check in, we... More

Located just 5 min. walk from the bus-station and supermarket and maybe 15 min. to the city-center, this hostel offers clean dorm- and bathrooms, out-door-kitchen and garden. Beds are comfy, lockers big and security perfect (front-door always closed). Wifi is stable and fast. It feels less like a hostel and more like a guest-house. Not a party-place, mind you. The...

We (a couple) stayed one night at hospedaje dodero. We had a simple room with fan and shared bathroom for $25. The kitchen (in/next to the garden) had all supllies necessary to prepare a simple meal, and the garden isn't big, but fine as well. Location is good, near the busses (to either nicaragua or san jose), supermarket and atm.... More

I was passing through Liberia on my way to Nicaragua and just needed a cheap, clean place to sleep, close to the bus station. Hospedaje Dodero was a steal at $15 for a private room. The host was very informative, giving me advice for a late dinner and for my morning bus journey. I will definitely stay here next time... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a shared dorm .The hostel is very clean and the beds are reasonably comfortable. Although Liberia is very hot, the rooms are kept cool with fans. There is a shared kitchen which is quite small but well-equipped. There is a nice garden with chairs to sit and relax in. The owners are very... More

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...
