Nice place in a convenient location, 1 min walk from the bus terminal which came in handy for my trip and the owners told me about it. Clean place, with a good atmosphere and a nice courtyard in the back. Owners were really helpful with any questions we had concerning our trip

My son and I decided to spend a few weeks hostelling around Costa Rica. Hospedaje Dodero is definitely a place I'd stay again I'd in Libéria for a number of reasons: 1.The owner Jesús, the first person to greet us and the last to escorts us to say goodbye, is almost never far away, to answer questions, provide directions, offer...

Decent place with friendly helpful staff. Conveniently located near the bus station and commercial center (bank, supermarket, restaurants). Kitchen and laundry facilities and a small, cozy back yard and patio to relax at. Airport pickup arranged at request for about $20. However, if you are not traveling with lots of luggage, walk about a kilometer from the airport to the...

Basic accomodations clean room reasonable rates ideal location close to the bus stations and the downtown. A small kitchen and shared fridge makes it easy to have a simple breakfast or quick lunch. Definitely a place to come back to.

My friend and I came to Liberia just before New Years. (Which was a total blast by the way!) We were greeted by Jesús and Shawn and they gave us a tour of the hostel and a map clearly marked of the surrounding area along with great places to check out. They also had free wifi! Very helpful for all...

I stayed here with a friend, just planning on passing through Liberia on my way to the coast. I ended up staying for two nights however and quite enjoyed this clean, cozy little hostel that's right on the edge of town. It's right down the street from the bus stop to boot.
