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

Great quiet hostel with a nice garden out back. 5 min walk from bus station. More importantly , very helpful owners, Jesus drew is a map of our itinerary and explained all the buses and shuttles we'd need to take to make the most of our vacation! Greatly appreciated advice :)

Hospedaje Dodero is a terrific place to stay if you're passing through or have a few days to spend in Liberia. The hostel is well located just outside of the central bus station and there are signs that lead you straight to the place (no need to ask for directions!) The owners are generous hosts and knowledgeable experts of all... More

This hostel was a great find for us. We walked to the grocery store and the bus station. The staff was friendly enough and attentive. We booked a room with an ensuite bathroom, and it only had a shower, no sink or toilet. We found that pretty useless and would have much rather not paid the extra money for a... More

Thank you for writing a review. We are very happy that your overall experience at Hospedaje Dodero was good. We want to address the "ensuite" issue. We have addressed this issue before but reviews get lost in the archives over time and we want to be as transparent as possible. The HW booking agent that we and most hostels around... More
