Sorry it's taken me so long to review (but better now than never). The girls who greeted me are so welcoming & helpful. Arriving in a new town on a Sunday morning with few things open can feel humdrum: a broad smile was soon put on my morosity. Pura Vida. It's a homely little hostel with good vibes, cheery artwork, practical information; not overloaded with facilities: irrelevant. Beds & bathroom fine. A relaxing patio & upstairs balcony. Unless into rafting, Turrialba's just a workaday upland town with no pretensions, and all the more pleasant for it: a good staging post between Orosi and the Carib Coast. Casa de Lis is central, an easy walk from the bus station, the main square a couple of blocks. Thank you girls for a lovely stay.
We had just a one night stay on Turrialba. We liked Casa de Lis. Front seat staff was super helpful. Room was comfortable. We left super early at 5:30 am to go birdwatching tour. Important note: Turrialba is a small town with limited restaurant options walkable. And some close early.
Stayed here for 3 nights. Central location, good places to eat, shop and activities are aplenty. Ask the reception staff, they know their stuff and will help out. We recommend the private coffee tour at Cafe Vina where you get to pick organic coffee beans and meet a local family. Can't fault the place, would go back tomorrow! Especially for the hummingbirds in the back garden, they are really special.
We spent two nights at Hostel Casa de Lis and loved it. Our private room was very nice, clean and modern with a cute balcony overlooking a garden. Lis and a girl at the desk were both very helpful with information on where to eat and other info about Turrialba. I would highly recommend staying here.
This is the first time I stayed in a hostel and this ruined it for all others. It was clean, quiet, centrally located and the staff was beyond helpful and friendly. It has a lovely courtyard in the back and a top floor veranda which looks out to the Turrialba Volcano. Can't imagine a better place to stay. Thanks Anna, Jana and Moe for everything.
