Finding this place was a true score. The rooms are clean and tidy. The kitchen area clean albeit sparsely populated with kitchen utensils, little but enough! The whole place was clean and the price was right at about twenty bucks. It's just a few feet from two markets and the bus stations. So that's very handy! The host was great... More

When I travel, the most important thing to me is whether or not the owners help me to have a god time. I often travel solo and without a plan, so it can be difficult if I visit a place where the staff is aloof and unhelpful. Hospedaje Dodero completely blew me away in this regard. They helped me to...

This hostel was clean, inexpensive and comfortable. We stayed here for several days before and after a tour of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The owners are very helpful- they continually suggest interesting places to go and explain how to get there. They arranged a taxi from the airport to the hostel for a small cost. It is conveniently located a... More

Felt welcomed before we even arrived. Received an email offering to meet us at the airport in Liberia with a van. Since we were arriving late this made it very easy and helpful to get our trip started. The place is clean and well kept. The staff are incredibly helpful and gave us lots of advice for our first couple... More

Hard to review this place. It has several extremes that make it hard to give one overall judgment. The place has excellent location and excellent owner Jesus who helps as just few owners do. The place has wifi, kitchen with fridge and dry-laundry. Jesus will provide you with all necessary maps (perfect done!) and really very useful tips. The small... More

This hostel is very clean and safe. Sean and Jesus are great hosts and very accomodating, trying to make everyone happy. Jesus gave dancing lesson to some of the guests and although I didn't partake it was great to watch all of them trying to follow along. The shower is not heated but it's pretty warm and humid in Costa... More

The location of the hostel was great-- less than 5 minutes from the main bus stations and a supermarket. However, The hostel itself was average. There was no hot water and the bathroom looked clean, but it did not smell clean. The room was very noisy from the traffic and the door bell. There is no way to enter or... More

I don't think I could have picked a better place to stay in Liberia. I was picked up from the airport by the owner, at a cost cheaper than a taxi (always a plus :)). I had my own room, which was simple with a fan and even a TV, that I didn't get to use though. The bathroom is... More

Awesome hostel, great people. Bad location- a local recommended we take a taxi back (a 2 minute drive) and did knife motions towards his throat. Felt pretty unsafe walking around at night. But otherwise very clean and cool owners.

Thank you for writing a review and we are happy you enjoyed the hostel and your hosts. We are sorry you were manipulated by a local taxi driver though. I am not sure what hour you took the taxi but for him to imply there is rampant violent crime in Liberia and that you would be attacked with a knife... More

I appreciate my stay there, it was convenient for taking buses (bus station is like 50 meters from there), there's also a Maxi Pali (grocerie store) at like 100 meters. You can store your meal and cook some if you want to. Be sure to bring US Dollars because are a bit peaky with exchange of colones (not a 1$... More

Thank you for writing a review and we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. I would like to address your concerns about the exchange rate. The exchange has been steady at around 500 colones to $1 since 2006 but as of mid-January 2014 the Costa Rican Colon has been losing value steadily and quickly. The official exchange at the bank...
