Hostel Casa de Lis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2012

This brand new hostel is outstanding. The price is more reasonable than many hotels. Lis, the owner, is extremely helpful about places to visit, restaurants, and even odd purchases you might want to make. It is beautifully decorated, has laundry facilities, well-stocked kitchen where you can prepare your own meals and Lis has a pot of coffee ready for guests first thing in the morning. I look forward to returning and seeing the second floor rooms when they are completed.

Room Tip: #1 and #2 are dorm style, #3 is a private room with 2 singles and bath, #4 is a beautiful double wit...

I stayed here in December 2011 with my 15 year old son. The place was very clean and right in town so it was close to the bus station, banks, restaurants, etc. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. I felt very secure and safe here with my son. This place was the nicest hostel of our trip, and nicer than almost all of the hotels and cabinas that we stayed at.

We stayed at the Casa de Lisin Turrialba which is a great spot for Trips to the Vulcano, the Guayabo National Monument, Wildwater Raftig und other Adventures. The Hostel is very clean, quiet und had a good bed - we slept wonderful! In the morning you can have breakfast on the terrace in the sun with a view in the garden. Lis was very helpful with organising things (she even offert to lend me some shoes if I wanted to go wild water raftig since I only had hinking boots or flipflops) and told us about a great walk through the coffee fields to a beautiful waterfall. We would definitly stay there again and will recomend it to anybody coming to Turrialba.

Casa de Lis ifs a fab new place to stay in Turriabla. Super central, just a few minutes walk from the bus station (so great if you want to get out of San Jose - about 1h:30m bus trip). Even with it central location - very quiet. The hostel is new and kitted out like home. The kitchen has all the mod cons, bathrooms are brand new - no cracked tiles here. Very very clean. I stayed in a dorm room, beds/mattresses, bed linen etc again all new and top quality. Love the personal bedside lights in the dorms. There is a nice deck area and secluded garden out back, great sun trap. Top terrace when complete has great volcano views. I highly recommend and would stay here again. Lis the owner is super helpful, as were her staff. All in all this was the best hotel i stayed in throughout my travels.

Room Tip: De kamers met uitzicht op de tuin zijn denk ik het rustigst en bovendien heb je dan een balkon.
