This hostel is one of my favorites worldwide because of the atmosphere. It was very clean and friendly. It was very convenient to have airport pickup and a 2 minute walk to the bus station as well as a few minutes to the grocery store and market. I stayed here more than once while backpacking around Costa Rica. There is... More

We were at the end of a 6 months in Central America and I was a little bit sick when we arrived there. We always take places where we can cook. With 3 kids that we home school at the same time, we stay more than 8 hours in a row in the hotels. The 2 owners really wanted us... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I must agree that your visit was a very uncomfortable, confusing and troubling experience. This began with confusion about which types of rooms you reserved and how many beds you reserved. While you had 5 members in your family, you only reserved 4 beds. Your explanation was that the youngest... More

When I flew in from Liberia I had arranged for transportation from the hostel. Shawn was at the airport waiting with a sign and my name on it. It was very convenient to have transportation, although the cost was very pricey and I am sure even a taxi would have been cheaper. The hostel itsself was very basic, but just... More

We stayed two nights in the ac room and we really enjoyed our stay. It is a really clean and nice place. Also very safe: The front gate is always locked and you always have to ring the bell to get in and out. There is a kitchen in the garden, which is also very clean. The owners are both... More

Hospedaje Dodero is definitely a decent lodging option in Liberia, where the options are scare, but I have to say that it is not as nice as some of the older TripAdvisor reviews have made it seem. Here´s my rundown from our three-night stay on the property: ROOMS: The room we stayed in was clean and had an average amount... More

We had chosen this hospedaje because of the reviews on tripadvisor, but it was very disappointing. Yes, we had a/c but the noise was very very loud. Yes, there is a little garden, but it was full of laundry, and just one hammock and 4 plastic chairs. Yes, it has a kitchen but not very clean. Besides, we had a... More

We passed one night at LIberia at Hospedaje Dodero. We used 3 private room. The place was clean and safe (the main gate is always lock). It's really closed to the bus station.

these guys take safety seriously, things are really clean and there are towels and a well stocked yet small kitchen. The range is top notch but only two burners. They are responsive on email and always around to help. One thing they could easily fix is to ads more seating in the cozy backyard. Even though there is more room... More
