Turrialba is a great place to visit, and this hostel (and hotel too) is the best place to stay at. Everything is very clean, the shower is hot, and there is not only a private little patio with garden out back, but a second story terrace with awesome views! I won't forget sitting there in the mornings and watching the... More

Needless to say we extended our stay... More

The Casa de Lis was our first accomodation in Costa Rica and it proved a very welcome and inviting introduction to the country. The genuine hospitality she offered seemed to be the true embodiment of the Costa Rican spirit. We stayed for two days and the accommodation was great. We loved the little court yard and the rooftop patio. Our... More

Nice clean place to stay. We arrived late and departed early. We chose this place because it was recommended by our whitewater rafting company, Tico's River Adventures. Convenient location, easy to find.

Nice little getaway from San José. It's a cute little town and the hostel is right in the center. The rooms are nice, the price is good and the staff is very kind and helpfull. They even directly booked our river rafting adventure for us so we could simply arrive and enjoy our stay.
