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...

Shawn and Jesus are so friendly, and so much fun ... excellent hosts in every way. The hostel is very conveniently located, the rooms are super clean, and it's a great place to meet fellow travelers. It was nice to have our ride from the airport arranged ahead of time, so we had one less thing to worry about when... More

We have been all over CR for the last couple of years, along with Nicaragua and Panama. Shaw and Jesus of Hospedaje Dodero are wonderful and fun people who are very helpful with whatever you plan to do in CR. The hostel is very clean and safe, close to walking everywhere, including the bus station. They also offer many exciting... More

My plane landed in Liberia and I had to spend a night there before going to my next destination. For the price, this place is very decent. The beds are OK, the place is clean and there are not many people in each dorm. They also provide a towel + soap and you can ask for a shuttle from the... More

There isn't a bad word we could say about this place. Great location, good price, spectacular staff and help/services provided.The day trips they provide are great value and convenient with pick up from the hostel. Self-catering available which is great for travelers on a budget, as Costa Rica is particularly expensive for Central America.

This hostel in a very convenient location (just next to a bus station) is owned by a cute Tico-Chele couple (oh, they don't call us "chele" in Costa Rica, don't they?), accompanied by really pretty staff girl with a little son, small dog and a black cat. I've been there twice, once with friends and once on my own. It's... More
