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

I had a great time at WMF! Nice pool, friendly staff and a great central location. I felt very safe staying here! My only complaint would be that the wifi didn't work in my room... But that's not the end of the world. Would definitely recommend this place!

stayed with several friends in the dorms. easy accommodation, great book exchange. not a place that you want to 'hang out' at night (no bar or restaurant) but not too far from quepos proper, felt very safe and helped us book a few activities in the days we were there. recommend it!

the hostel is a very good place to make tours around quepos. the room was tidy with a fridge and a fan. the hostel offers some nice amenities like a swimming pool, a tv room on top of the roof and a big kitchen. the stuff is very helpful in terms of organizing tours.

I stayed in a private room so I can't comment on the shared rooms, but the pool is great, small but all you need, kitchen has everything and nice set up. Hammocks and computer room are great bonuses. The best part are the sweet dogs that live on the property!

I don't understand why lonely planet would rate it a good hostel, and even going as far as to say one of the best hostel in costa rica. its dirty, there's dog poop on the ground that stays for days, and the kitchen is nasty. the matresses are very dirty and it seems like there had been a thousand people...

Very safe (gated, with a guard) hostel just a couple blocks from the bus station in Quepos. Also steps from groceries, restaurants, bars, banks, everything is central. At $20/nite it seemed decent value for a private room in "green" season. Great kitchen and dining area could probably seat 60 or 70 people. Upstairs there's a fun, really clean, wide open... More
