The outside looks sketchy but inside is a completely different thing. It's very clean and well-kept and the guy that runs it is very knowledgable on how to get anywhere you want from Liberia. He has TONS of info available and the rooms are outdated but it is a hostel in Costa Rica after all. I didn't want to stay... More

This a cute hostel at a good location (very close to the bus stop and close to the center). It is not necessarily a bad choice to stay here. However, there were some negative points. I overheard the owner being very rude to his staff member twice. Maybe there was a good reason for this, but it left me (and... More

I like to have everything organized for my first night while travelling. I could not have been happier with my choice. The minute I booked I got an email offering me a ride from the airport. The driver was there on time and was very friendly. One of the staff members speaks perfect English and can give you all the... More

I have spent 3 nights in this hostel. I liked the room- simple with fan and no window,but really the best option for having a good sleep there. And for a very convenient price. The owners are very nice,kind and helpful-always ready to give an advice. There is a community kitchen,relaxing area, you might use the washing maschine (with small... More

The garden is lovely, and the resident cat and dog are adorable. The outdoor kitchen is a blessing – there's oil and salt and coffee provided, a decent range of pans, a rice cooker, a blender, two burners and a (clean!) fridge. The place is very close to and easy to find from the bus terminal. The staff are really... More

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
