    What an amazing place! Jesús and Brayan made me feel so welcome. They are very knowledgeable and kind. The facilities are very well kept, and everyone is very nice. If you are coming to Liberia, this is absolutely the place to stay. I have come here twice and it’s consistently the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Book it!

    The staff was incredible, very friendly responded immediately, and knowledgeable. The place was clean, great community spot and followed covid protocols. Wish we would have stayed more time to check out the vibe which was relaxed and safe.

    Close to the bus station, easy to walk around the downtown area from here. Hostel does not have laundry facilities available, as listed in the Amenities. I had to go hunt down a laundry service in town. Otherwise, not a bad place to stay.

    Staff is friendly and very informative. The security here is so good it’s almost irritating haha they have to buzz you in and out. There was a family living here so it changed the vibe a little. The common areas became more that family’s and less a backpacker hangout. Location wise, you are within driving distance from a cool lagoon, the beach, and a national park. You can walk to the grocery store. Overall the hostel is a good “pass through” place to sleep.

    Good for a short stay. I recommend a private room. Staff offered to let me park the motorcycle rental inside, which was wonderful. Food, groceries, and bank all within walking distance. Located in a busy area.
