    Absolutely LOVED my stay here in Liberia. The staff, especially Jesus, were especially helpful in letting us know where things were and what types of things we could do. We ended up doing the trip to Rincón de la Vieja and it was GORGEOUS. People were super friendly in the hostel and I liked that we had access to a hot top and fridge. 10/10 would come back!

    Loved my stay here. This hostel is very stylish with a lot of artwork and artistic touches. The staff are friendly, knowledgable, and can book any kind of tour or transportation you might need. The place is super clean. Every morning, there's a big pot of coffee for all. It's near the bus station, supermarkets, and restaurants, but if you want cook for yourself, there's a good kitchen too. I plan to stay here next time I am in Liberia!

    Out stay at Hostel Dodero was great! The ride from the airport was very helpful, it was $20 USD and the driver had a sign with our name which was easy to find. The room was small, clean and nice. The shared facilities are fine and the water is not heated. The outdoor kitchen and adjacent hammock area was lovely to lounge around in. Jesus, the owner, was super helpful! He showed us where to get dinner, helped shop for the things we needed and got us to our next hotel. WE WILL STAY AGAIN!!

    Want ambiance? Want a "hot shower'? This is no the place. BUT, if you want a staff that will help you find your way around? A staff that will get you to places? A staff that becomes part of your party? A setting that others leave their hotels to comes to during the day just to have more fun --- this is where you belong.

    Great little spot that is exactly as advertised. The owner and staff were very accommodating to specific requirements. Staff was especially good, I arrived early after a series of long bus rides and he pretty much dropped everything to prepare my room so I good get a little nap in!! The owner is proud of his establishment and it shows in its cleanliness and operation. A perfect place for travellers
