Stayed just for one night, but the staff were so friendly and helpful. It was 2 blocks from where the bus dropped me off, and the Maxi Pali supermarket is 2 blocks away also, so a great location. Rooms were clean, had air-conditioning. Kitchen is small if you are planning on cooking. But overall I had a great stay, would...

I stayed at Hospedaje Dodero a few years ago and was surprised to see it so busy this time. I guess that is what happens when you write a favorable review? I couldn't get a private room because they were booked up. They recommended another hostel down the street that had private rooms with AC for $30, but I chose...

I only stayed here a night to break up a long travel day but my stay was fantastic - the owner is really helpful, there's a great common area and kitchen, everything is really clean and the wifi was great! Wish every hostel was this nice!

Very clean and the hosts were exceptionally helpful which should get major brownie points as mosts of the places I stayed in couldn't give you the time of day if you were not spending buckets of money on tours. They have a helpful map for bank machines, stores and bus stations all within walking distance from the hostel. They were...

This hostel is clean, has a nice garden, good kitchen facility, good wifi and even has a tv in the room! The owner is extremely helpful and the effort he puts into both the maintenance of the hostel and the local information for tourists is impeccable!

The hostel is very good, clean, etc. But the host, it makes it an unique stay. We were lost in the city when we met the host. If proposed us to drive us to its hostel if we wanted. We agreed. Best choice ever. I've been traveling for a while, and it is the first time I've met a host...

Nice place in a convenient location, 1 min walk from the bus terminal which came in handy for my trip and the owners told me about it. Clean place, with a good atmosphere and a nice courtyard in the back. Owners were really helpful with any questions we had concerning our trip

My son and I decided to spend a few weeks hostelling around Costa Rica. Hospedaje Dodero is definitely a place I'd stay again I'd in Libéria for a number of reasons: 1.The owner Jesús, the first person to greet us and the last to escorts us to say goodbye, is almost never far away, to answer questions, provide directions, offer...

Decent place with friendly helpful staff. Conveniently located near the bus station and commercial center (bank, supermarket, restaurants). Kitchen and laundry facilities and a small, cozy back yard and patio to relax at. Airport pickup arranged at request for about $20. However, if you are not traveling with lots of luggage, walk about a kilometer from the airport to the...
