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.

This hostel is perfect for people passing through Liberia. Very clean and secure, located really close to the bus station. The staff were awesome and Shawn very kindly helped me once I had left Liberia. Highly recommend.

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...

This is a very conveniently located hostel! Within a couple minutes of a walk to the bus station and supermarket. The 2 guys running this hostel are extremely helpful with future travel plans and where to go! For New Year's Eve they organized a big bus for all of us staying there to go down to the beach too! One...

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. Jesus and the staff will take care of...

Really conveniently located little hostel. Very well stocked, clean outdoor kitchen and garden with hammocks and chairs to chill out. Loads of information on how to get to your next destination/tours etc. Cannot stress how perfectly located this place is, you can basically see it from the bus station. I stayed in a 2 bed dorm which although was pretty...

Truly a great place to stay in Liberia. Very clean, comfortable and friendly. Rooms, kitchen, washrooms, common room all very clean. The owners went out of their way to find us transportation and well priced excursions. We could not have asked for a better place to stay upon arrival in Costa Rica!! Would definitely stay again! And they put up...

I had a great time at the hostel. Both owners were open to talk to, with good sense of humor and happy to help. Room and the hostel were very clean and all the common areas cleaned every day. Basic equipment in the open kitchen to make meals and relax in hammocks. Rooms kept in the nice temperature for sleeping....

I stayed in the dorm with AC because the other dorm has a window towards the very noisy street. The whole hostel was very clean and neat, the kitchen very well stocked. Location very good as well. The downside was though that the dorm is very tiny and got very packed when it was full. There was almost no room...

Thank you for writing a review. We are pleased you found the hostel clean and well located and the kitchen well stocked. We are disappointed to hear about your concerns about the "room options". I guess the first point I would like to address is the type of room you chose. You chose the dorm which is the cheapest option....

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...
