I wouldn't suggest coming here for a weeks holiday but in fairness you wouldn't stay in Liberia for a week either. The hostel was basic but functional. Room wasn't dirty as some reviews have found. It was shabby all over though. The 'antiques' that are scattered around maybe quaint to some but they looked like tat from a car boot... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel in a private room with shared bathroom. There were not many other guests during our stay. We loved the garden. It is a quiet place, nice (creative) decorated with soft jazzy music. The hotel is very central located and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is also a fridge (at "... More

We got trapped in Liberia during the Easter holiday and pretty much everything was closed. We booked this place for 2 nights and I wanted to leave the second I saw my room. It was dark, dingy, and stinky. I went to use the shared bathroom and was horrified to find to toilet full of feces and smelling horrible. I... More

The hostel seemed sweet in the beginning, it has a very sweet backyard. Our room was ok, not the cleanest, dusty. We went for dinner and when we came back, there was a mouse on my bed. We tried to talk to the receptionist but he didn't speak any English and we, unfortunately, no Spanish. We were somehow able to... More

Private room for $20 with big bed, fan, and decently secure. Only con is a shared bathroom that can be busy. Prime location downtown next to the square, hourly airport bus is only 3 blocks away. It should be said that the place is kinda grungy, but if that is a surprise to at a $20 hotel than you need... More

Myself and my family were booked in at Casa de Papel down the road which when we arrived was shut and up for sale so we ended up here on the other side of the road. The room wasn't very clean but it had fans and was cheap. There was a kind of charm to it (I'm sure it was... More

This is one of the best places we have stayed in Costa Rica - the price is excellent value and whilst they do not have a kitchen, there is a kettle for hot water and lots of plates and cutlery to use as well as a fridge so we managed to survive on guacamole, salads and fruits which was perfect...

We were in Hotel Real across the street from the Tope as they are both owned by the same person, who was quite pleasant. Unfortunately, it was the dirtiest place I have seen, the sink had toothpaste from previous visitors and it was slopped all over the rough wood surrounding the sink. The 'garden' was full of debris and just... More

I stayed there only because all other hotels in the area were booked. This was the dirties place during my CR trip. I slept in my clothes; I showered very carefully not to touch anything. I tried not to touch the pillow with my face. I stayed in a room across the street; the hostel rooms might be much cleaner.
