My husband and I had a late-landing flight to Liberia and an early morning shuttle to Montezuma the next day. Since we were only spending 12 hours in Liberia we didn't want to spend much money on our room, but we didn't want bed bugs, either.
I'm really happy with the service we got. I emailed after booking my room and was pleased to have the option to be picked up from the airport for less money than we would have spent on a cab. We were given the option to stop for dinner on the way to the hostel. If we had landed earlier in the day, I think we would have passed, but since it was already late, we decided to stop. We got a great overview of costa rican food, local culture, and must-sees in the area.
The hostel itself is close to the bus station and market. There isn't much in Liberia, but we discovered there's a little section of what could be called "old" that we might consider if we're staying in town again.
Hostel is clean and safe. Maybe a little too safe -- it's locked from the inside and you need to ring the doorbell whenever you want to leave or enter. It was fine for us staying only 12 hours, but I imagine it might get a little annoying for a long term stay. We had our own shower, but shared a bathroom.
Highly recommended for budget lodging in Liberia.
