I was not impressed with my stay here. I had booked a PRIVATE single with shared bathroom, on the website I booked with it clearly stated that breakfast was not included for dormitory room bookings. Upon arrival I asked about the free breakfast but was told that it didn't apply to me because I was staying in the hostel part...

Hola Nicola, We are sorry for this misunderstood, we just check the information on the website you booked our room and definately could be more clear. We have already asked to update this inmediately in order to avoid another inconvenience. Neither the beds in shared dorms or the private dorm with share bathroom offer breakfast included in the rate. Breakfast...

Hotel Liberia is a clean, cozy hotel just a block or two to city center. My flight was cancelled due to bad weather and the friendly staff helped me out immensely with a late night run to the airport, making phone calls to help find my luggage and help me get to my next destination. The open air patio is...

I stayed one night in Hotel Liberia before flying home. It was $25 US per night then and a very good deal. basic room but clean. Staff were warm and friendly and I felt safe as an older woman. The taxi for the airport was early and the hotel arranged that for me. I am thinking of booking again in...

The staff was very friendly. We asked if we could leave our bags in a secure area prior to check in so we didn't have to take them to the beach, and they did this, On one night of our stay they had to move us to a different room, they said they would move everything for us while we...

Stayed here the night before a morning flight out of Liberia. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, the restaurant food was surprisingly tasty, and their airport shuttle was on time. Courtyard was cute and the facility is nice and quaint despite its central location. Only downside is lack of A/C, but the room's ventilation was good.

Central location, yet quiet courtyard. Nice property, restaurant on location may not look like much, but the food was surprisingly good! Only 3 beds in shared dorm, fairly spatious. Dorms with shared bathroom are very basic. Showers could use a bit of a facelift! Cleanliness was not an issue though.

We stayed here one evening after arriving late to Liberia. Wifi only available in the lobby area but our room was right next to the lobby so we got wifi in our room! Very simple room. Clean enough. There's parking available but you'll need to alert someone to unlock the gate and let you in.

The hotel was in my Lonely Planet, saying it was a budget option, which I couldn't believe when I saw the website and entered it one in Liberia. We arrived quite late in the evening and decided to just try and see. Since we had a price in mind, we asked to place our own matrass in one of the...

We only stayed here for one night in a dorm, which was clean and tidy. It was in a good spot close to shops and the bus station not a far walk away. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Restaurant had really delicious food at a reasonable price. The place is really lovely and has a nice courtyard.

The position of the hotel can't be beaten - only a 2 minute walk from the city centre. However the rooms are very basic, especially where we were at the back of the hotel in the new area. The manager didn't want to know when we mentioned our lack of wardrobe... apparently 2 shelves are a wardrobe.

“Our room was opposite the courtyard and restaurant and so we were aware that opening the door offered anyone a look into our room”
