The hostel is well situated, really confortable, really clean and really nice. A really nice kitchen to cook your meal, a little terrace to eat your meal, a nice roof terrace to digest your meal. The rooms are nice and the beds really confortable. The staff is really helpfull. Everything for a good price.
This hostel would be perfect with a computer to use as we don't travel with device to enjoy the free-wifi.

Well done Lis

Went to Turrialba to whitewater raft and Canyoning. Our group age 11 to 58 stayed in the hostel. They offered us a great stay! The rooms were very clean and quiet. There is a fantastic view of the Volcano. They are close to dining and adventure outpost. You dont need to have a car at this location. The kitchen was very clean and there were several markets to purchase fresh veges, meats and fruits.They were very helpful with advise about things to do. I can not say enough great things about this place and the absolutely breath taking and very friendly area they are located in. I speek for all 3 familys because everyone commented to me how safe and comfortable they felt at Cas De Lis! Our only regrets is we are not still there but we will be back!!!!

Room Tip: They had the best pillows in Costa Rica during my 11 days in the country!

Found this place on tripadvisor and so glad we did! super clean, nice rooms, breakfast isn't included but is worth paying for as it's really good.

Really helpful staff who sorted our white-water rafting for us very easily and arranged for us to be dropped off in the next town to get the bus rather than having to go all the way back to Turrialba to get our bags saving us a few hours of travel time!

Would definitely recommend, we were disappointed we could only stay one night - book ahead if possible!

I'll echo another reviewer's thoughts: this is the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. Would you believe that even the kitchen was clean? In addition to the cleanliness, the staff was really great and our room(s) were very nice. I loved that the coffee was ready at 6:00 am every morning!

I arrived to a warm welcome from staff member, Kurt, who was extremely helpful in recommending tours and reputable companies in the area. He also pointed out a whole section of the wall dedicated to travel assistance. There were bus schedules, tour recommendations (both self-guided and with the local tour companies), and maps of the area. Owner Lisette showed up a little bit later and was happy to call a great tour company for me so I could go rafting in the morning.

Clean towels and sheets come standard. The hostel was extremely clean, and the kitchen was immaculate and had everything you might need to cook your own meals. Breakfast is available for a few dollars, and I recommend the pancakes. The store was out of bananas, so I had mine with mango.

Casa de Lis is secure, spacious, and quite beautiful. There is a small book exchange. The rooms are clean, and the beds are really comfortable, the most comfortable I've had in my seven weeks on the road. A fan and reading lamp are found on each bed. The bathrooms are well-decorated and very clean. The back patio is lovely and offers access to a small yard. You really get the feeling you're in someone's private home. I am looking forward to going back!

Room Tip: The rooms toward the back are a little quieter, only because they're away from the street noise...
