Our family stayed here as our base for exploring the Manuel Antonio area. The staff (especially Jorge) was very friendly and genuinely kind, as well as helpful. They set us up with the best guide we had for our entire Costa Rica trip (Mervin- Manuel Antonio Park). The other guests were very international, with at least 6 languages spoken during... More

We found this place according to great recommendations in lonely planet but were very disappointed. We got one of their private rooms without a bathroom initially and the room was smaller then our bathroom at home. Bed sheets were washed however stained along with the mattress and kept coming off the bed. The next day we upgraded hoping for the... More

My friend and I stayed three nights at this hostel and were beyond pleased. Staff was nice and the hostel had a nice chill feel to it with hammocks, pool area (bonus!), open common kitchen and a couple of dogs just hanging out. The room was rather small (private room for two with a bunkbed), but it was good enough... More

The reviews were so deceiving. The staff was friendly but not helpful, especially for cabs. My sheets were paper thin and had holes in them. The bathrooms were very dirty. The kitchen was not clean. The location was fine but next time I'll stay in Manuel Antonio. This hostel had nice security though.

We stayed at the WMF for two nights during our trip around Costa Rica. It was actually the 7th establishment in which we have slept and so far the best one. Little more expensive than the others, but definitely worth it. The location is very central, minutes of walk from the bus station, shops and restaurants. It is very pleasant... More

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at Wide Mouth Frog Hostel for three nights in March 2014. We paid $50 a night for a room with private bathroom. The room was large and had two double beds (the one we slept on was comfortable), a small safebox and a small refrigerator. The room was very hot and the ceiling fan... More

I thought the Wide Mouth Frog is fine, but not particularly special or fantastic as noted in the Lonely Planet guide. The good: The beds are comfortable. The atmosphere is nice. The weather was extremely hot and the ventilation in the rooms is poor, so many guests relax in the common areas. The pool is wonderfully refreshing. The location in... More
