This is the best hostel I've ever stayed at - ever, and I'm of retirement age! Clean and comfortable, reasonably priced, quiet all night, lovely pool, helpful staff who responded with friendly smiles to make the trip easy. Clean community kitchen with plenty of space for food prep, storage, and dining or hanging out. Free oatmeal and coffee in the... More

Staff was very welcoming and professional, our double room with private bathroom was clean and big enough, price with $50 per night ok. showers were hot (!), they have a nice pool... More

The dorms we're great, spacious and comfortable, The pool was clean and awesome (i love swimming), The kitchen was average (almost everyone buys breakfast at The hostel, its cheap and tasty), and it has a Big tv spot with hammocks around on The second floor. They have a lot of... More

What do you want from a $35 private room? WMF is quite secure, friendly,close to a good market and lots of shops. You can stay closer to the park and spend an outrageous amount, but basically the area is all the same. Save your colones and stay here. Fifty cent bus ride gets you to the park and beach. Give...

Overall, just don't stay in Quepos. Spend the extra dime to find somewhere in Manuel Antonio, because Quespos is pretty dumpy in general. Wide Mouth Frog was an average hostel, but great hammocks. Cold showers. Staff is pretty rude.

Pros: well equipped kitchen Pool Friendly staff Close to bus station Close to Pali grocery store (it's a block away around the corner) Cons: over priced Basically $50 gets you a huge room , with ceiling fan, private bath, hot water. AC is another $10. Everyone else gets a tiny (I mean TINY) room, shared cold showers, a floor fan... More

I stayed in one of the dorm rooms at the Wide Mouth Frog Backpacker's in Quepos for three nights. Nice kitchen and hangout area with hammocks and picnic tables to meet other travelers. They offer a great breakfast for $3 dollars that includes rice, beans, eggs, fresh fruit, toast, oatmeal, and coffee. I took advantage of this every morning. The... More

Wide mouth frog has a good reputation in the internet. That was the reason why we booked it. what is special is the pool and a kitchen. But the rooms are so tiny, it reminds you to a prison. That is not my understanding of holiday! We were travelling in total six weeks but this room war really one of... More

We stayed at this hostel in December and paid $45 for three people for a room that was barely big enough to hold the three of us let alone the beds and our backpacks. The second night we 'upgraded' to an ensuite room for $60 but no air conditioning, the lock on the door didn't work and the bathroom was... More
