$24US with shared bath - don´t expect any luxuries. Place needs a really really good clean, dust and dirt build up everywhere. Pillows are atrocious. Courtyard nice to sit in. Denis very helpful with information about Liberia and what to see, also with arrangements for transfers.

We arrived late into Liberia airport and had booked this for a one night stopover before continuing down to Monteverde. The room was extremely basic, clean but certainly no frills. Thank goodness for the fan - it was so humid and airless in the room and even with the fan it was still pretty hot! Shared bathroom was fine, clean... More

This was definitely one the cheapest options in Liberia. The rooms are also private which is a nice change from dorm rooms. However, my room faced the courtyard and it was quite noisy and light throughout night. You can also hear everything from the other rooms. Also, while I was there, the water was cut off, so no use of... More

This place won't be for the four-star crowd, but for veteran backpackers passing through Liberia, La Posada del Tope is a great choice. The decor of the place is funky with a lot of old junk repurposed as architectural pieces, like the old coffee grinder handles used as a toilet paper roll holder. The owner is an artist. The staff...

Okay the place is cheap (we paid $25 for private room with bath) and fan) but that does not mean that it should be dirty. There were smears on the bathroom wall, the toilet bowl had brown stains and the wash basin was falling off the wall, and it wasn't clean. The bathroom door was one half of a saloon... More

Sorry, but even for $25 this place was a dump. It was dirty and uncomfortable. There were no screens, and the nets had holes. There was a decent, if loud fan to keep one ftom suffocating. We were not in the main building but were across the street, so we can't speak to the condition of the main building. The... More

One night in Liberia and we stayed in La Posada del Tope. This place would be so beautiful if some would take care of it and clean it... It is a really nice historical building, with nice creative ideas how to make use of old stuff but it's not clean at all, the fan is not sufficient so it gets... More

We finally had a private double room with shared bathroom for the price of a completely private room. We took this room because the booked place was way to dirty to stay in. Our room was still a mess: dust and dirt everywhere. Cockroaches and many different kinds of insects completed the awful impression. The door to the road was... More

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
