400 Characters is not enough to describe it. We had the PLEASURE of staying at Dodero for 2 weeks ending early September. Jesus, Shawn and their staff (Notably Felix, even though he speaks only spanish) Were the best I've ever seen in hospitality! And I've worked hotels/hostels over the world. The kitchen is stocked with seasoning and oil for your... More

As i discovered trying to get to Monteverde from Nicaragua in a day isn't possible so we had to spend a night in Liberia. The hostel is conveniently located about 200m from the bus station and is clean, comfortable and has AC at no extra cost. Originally the manager Jesus was friendly and explained in detail how to get the... More

Thank you for writing a a review. We are happy you found the hostel conveniently located and enjoyed the clean, comfortable rooms. I would like to clarify that the room you booked was with AC and is a slightly higher price than one with a fan. I just want to be clear AC is not included at no extra charge.... More

Pretty polarising aspects to this Hostel! Pros: Facilities are what you need, info on tours, good location & friendly staff. Cons: 1) The main entrance is locked & the worker needs to come & let you in OR OUT! You have hit a bell and wait. No hastle if they're free but huge issue if they aren't. We came back... More

My friend and I were arriving at the Liberia airport late in the evening and needed to catch an early morning bus to San Jose. Hospedaje Dodero was able to arrange a shuttle to pick us up at the airport for $20. Jose, our driver was there waiting for us with my name on a sign. Very friendly, good driver,... More

There is nothing special about this place, but also nothing to complain about. It is a convenient option for Liberia, close to both the bus station and a npbig supermarket. The owner is nice. You have to ring a doorbell every time you want to leave or go in.

Hospedaje Dodero is so neat and tidy that I immediately felt relaxed the first night I arrived. The neighborhood isn't the prettiest, but once you walk in to Dodero, you forget all about that. The main staff person on duty was Felix. Poor guy never could catch a break because he was being overworked without any relief from his bosses... More

I was robbed on my bus on my way to Liberia from Monteverde. The sweet man at the hostel was very kind and helpful and gave me a free night. Helped me leave Costa Rica with a more positive impression. (The trip advisor 200-character minimum is stupid, I don't have anything else to say.)

I didn't know what to expect from this hostel in Liberia. There was a group of 7 of us and we all had an enjoyable stay. The good things: Clean rooms and open areas. Comfortable beds and pillows. Good AC for those hot nights. Nice back patio, hammocks in the front and back to relax in. Hosts Shawn & Jesus... More

Wasn't expecting much from a budget option hostel in Costa Rica but definitely not worth revisiting.

Location is close to the bus depot. It's a small hostel but currently renovating to add more rooms. One of the managers, Hesus, is unbelievably knowledgable, well-organized, and detail-oriented.
