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

The grounds are well cared for and there are a lot of beautiful plants. the community space was great for my yoga self practice. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and they offer a big breakfast in the morning for 3$. The laundry... More

The staff was friendly and very helpful in recommending and booking our excursions. They served a genuine Costa Rican breakfast of Gallo Pinto, fruit, coffee, toast, etc. for only $3. One of my favorite parts having people from so many countries staying at the same hostel--overheard a lot of German and French. You get to enjoy the city of Quepos,... More

The hostel is really OK.. except that our room was HOT. Never slept this warm. There is a huge fan which doesn't seem to be helping much. The room was very small and window could not be opened. The shared bathrooms are fine, although only cold water. The kitchen and free coffee are nice. The place is safe and probably... More

Great clean and friendly hostel. The owner has obviously travelled and appreciates what a traveller wants in a hostel. Stayed my first night at a nearby hotel getting a private room for less than a dorm bed here BUT the service was poor/unfriendly and the room wasnt great...moved here and it was the best decision i made..should have done it...

Wow, what a find. Don't listen to the yuppies on here complaining who were expecting a hotel and got a hostel. This place was great! We met great people every night, lounged in a beautiful pool area, partied at a local dance club and had a nice little meal at Soda Quepos just down the road. Negatives: yes quepos is... More
