    Jesus was the ultimate host. Despite our late arrival, he helped us plan a great drive to Arenal, ordered food for us and provided tips on various attractions. His professionalism and courtesy are unmatched.

    Good facilities and friendly/knowledgeable staff with the best tips for things to do in the area. Fairly quiet and chill atmosphere. Will definitely be staying here when ever I need to travel to Liberia.

    Hospedaje Dodero is a nice spot. The facilities are clean and the vibe is chill. I appreciated how the staff are friendly and were helpful when asking for information about transportation. Another plus is the hostel's proximity to the bus station. It's easy to get to and from the Liberia airport by local bus for about $1-2USD. Try ordering a cansado from the local soda through the hostel. They'll deliver it and it's tasty!

    Very recommended. It was my second time staying there during my trip to Costa Rica! Bryan was there for the two times I’ve stayed and was very helpful. He definitely made my stay better as he was recommending me were to go, and just being very nice overall. The first time I stayed I slept at the private two bed room wit no A/C, and second time at the 6 bed dorm with A/C. I would probably recommend to go with a room that has air conditioning as it’s pretty hot there.

    Stayed for one night in the shared dorm. Simple, clean, easy to access from the airport and bus station. Friendly and helpful staff who speak Spanish and English. Felt secure within the hostel itself as well as parking a rental car on the street. Nice garden area with lots of hammocks and shared kitchen. Will definitely stay again when I fly to/from Liberia.

    Great overnight place. Safe. Clean. Cheap. No hot water was a shocking shower realization in the morning, not even an option on nozzle so make it a quick one. The staff was really nice. The area is limited in things to do but the kitchen and yard lead for great conversation and a relaxing space. Would highly suggest it if you are staying in Liberia. Catch a taxi to the airport for $10 just down the street. Hostel charges $20. The bus is $1 but can run off schedule so give yourself some time.

    Staff were very helpful in places to see and friendly. Neighbor next door has an issue with people parking in front of his house on the public street, I watched staff ask one of the other guests late at night to move his car because of the neighbor complaining. Sounds like there needs to be a proper chat between staff and the neighbor instead of bending over for the old dude. Its a noisy place, open bits above the door which let light and extra noise from reception in to rooms. Bring earplugs.

    Good value for money/good enough wifi to watch movies/ensuite bathroom and lockers/most of the staff is super nice and helpful. Have a nice map with typical and good places to visit that are close by and with good instructions! Completely dead hostel in terms of atmosphere, if that's what you're looking for you will not find it here. Bathroom is super super small and shower head is not stable so water goes everywhere (and it does not heat up)

    made the joke “don’t worry, we won’t sell your passport on the black market” after telling us that our room key was not allowed to leave with us when we went out to get groceries.
