We only stayed here for one night, but we really liked it. The hostel is very clean and safe. Close to the bus terminal. The beds are comfortable. Jesus, the owner, is extremely nice and went out of his way to help us rent the car we needed. He had all the information about the companies and helped us call... More

We stayed at this hostel the last day of our trip because we wanted to be close to the airport. It was close to the bus stop and easy to get to, but it was a little weird. We were checked in by Jesus, and although he is excellent at painting murals, he was kind of uncomfortable to talk to,... More

Thank you for writing a review. We apologize that you felt you did not receive an adequate welcome. In seems quite out of a character for any of the staff but occasionally "uncomfortable" conversations occur cross-culturally. As for ringing in and out of the hostel, it's a matter of security and keeping prices low for backpackers. We would not be... More

Centrally located, cab driver knew where it was so didn't need to have to explain anything. Clean room, bed was comfortable, owners were very nice and grounds felt very secure as entrance was controlled by a buzzer. I would stay there again, definitely a great value for the money.

This is a cool place to stay for a few nights. The staff are super friendly and helpful, it is in a very convenient place with stores and a bus stop all nearby, and the little hang out area is a very nice place to chill out and relax with some friends (or meet new people). Also this place had... More

We stayed there one night on our way to Monteverde. Just 2 minutes walk to the local bus station or 5 to Pulmitan bus station, this little place was nice and quiet. Very safe as well as you have to buzz to get in and out. We had a small private twin room at the back with shared bathroom (which... More

Lovely stay for my one night in Liberia. Friendly staff were informative and chatty, very secure little hostel just up from the bus station, kitchen available in the lovely little back garden which is lit up beautifully at night by Christmas style lights. Nice little dog and cat. Clean and functional dorm room and bathroom. Cheers guys

Good spot to stay if you are looking for a night or two. Cozy backyard/hang out area. Outdoor kitchen was nice and there was laundry facilities if needed. Good location in Liberia right near the bus station and it was super easy to find. Not a party hostel if that is what you are looking for. The room was comfortable... More

Central location, close to buses. Helpful staff and very clean rooms and common areas. Staff are very helpful with information regarding buses, things to do and boarder crossings. Would recommend to anyone for a quiet stop off in Liberia.

We had a double bedroom in the backyard. This is probably the most noisy room because it's right in front of the shared kitchen, the garden area and the shared bathroom. All the other rooms are on the inside of the building or upstairs. Nevertheless the room and the private shower was very clean and tidy. Liberia centre is a... More
