Nice clean place to stay. We arrived late and departed early. We chose this place because it was recommended by our whitewater rafting company, Tico's River Adventures. Convenient location, easy to find.

Nice little getaway from San José. It's a cute little town and the hostel is right in the center. The rooms are nice, the price is good and the staff is very kind and helpfull. They even directly booked our river rafting adventure for us so we could simply arrive and enjoy our stay.

This property is extremely clean and welcoming. The staff is very helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions. FREE WI-Fi.

My husband and I stayed at the Hostel Casa de Lis for a few nights while we were visiting friends in the Turrialba area. The Hostel was not only beautiful but very comfortable. The design and amenities consider everything a traveler needs. The upper balcony has a wonderful view of the city and the porch in the back of the...

Just one night here but would definitely choose it again if we came back to Turrialba. Staff was very helpful and friendly, felt safe, free lockers available. We stayed in the dorm room and had it to ourselves. Full kitchen looked great, interesting people to have conversations with on the back patio. Very good value.

Really liked this place. Convenient for white water rafting down the PACUAURE. Room was big and comfortable and it had the best shower I had in the whole of Costa Rica. Kitchen facilities are good and the roof terrace a nice place to sit and chill :)

My family of 5--2 adults, 2 college-aged boys, 1 teen daughter--stayed at the Casa de Lis the night before rafting the Rio Pacuare. It was a perfect stopover! Because we arrived after dark and left first thing the following morning, we did not miss a view of the Costa Rican landscape, and we did enjoy being in a Costa Rican...

Great place, very clean, very friendly and helpful. Well equipped kitchen. All you could need. Tea and coffee provided. Upper terrace with view of volcano and a cute terrace garden out the back. Only stayed one night as they were fully booked, had to change to another across the street, which the receptionist kindly booked for us.
