The owner is really friendly and very helpful. Gives you a lot of tips to go around and explore and it is always willing to help you around and make you comfortable. Also he prepares very good and cheap food. Breakfast included is a plus. Although the place gets really hot during the day and lacks a bit of ventilation.... More

The owner just surprised us with cooking a really nice dinner with our basic ingredients we brought. He just added some of his food and served us a delicious dinner. The room and bath were clean, beds comfortable and no problems with any noise. We stayed for one night. Later in the evening he showed up with hot chocolate. Have... More

Spent 2 nights there lately and had good stay. Owner is very friendly, helpful and a great cook. Had a great brekkier every morning. Rooms are average, little bit too hod and because it's next to the main road then it can be really noisy. As long you have earplugs should be okay. Owner showed me some great wild life... More

We had a nice stay here. The Hostel is located in Quepos, bus the bus pass often just by the hotel so it takes only few minutes to go to Manuel Antonio. Downside : It was super hot when we stay and the fan was really loud. So is the road passing by, traffic didn't stop during the night. So... More

Very clean with amazing food on request. The owner Mauricio will cook you anything you ask for and play very nice music while you are eating. You can feed the monkeys in the back garden and that's quite an experience! Also has front parking and hot water (quite rare in CR lol). Great value for money!

The owner Mauricio will make you feel like a king. He is a trained chef and his food is yummy, just tell him what you want for lunch/ dinner and he will make it. Yummy breakfast is included in the price of the room. He also carried our luggage to the room, made coffee whenever we asked for it and... More

If you do not need an A/C in your room and are on a budget you cannot go wrong with Central Backpackers and it's host Mauricio. Private rooms comes with fans and are simple but clean. The complimentary breakfast changes every day (we had fruits, eggs & pancakes) and provided a good start for the day. Also make sure you... More

The Hostel is nice and has fair prices, but what makes it Special is the great food that the owner is cooking for you. He is a professional cook and you will notice from the taste. He made for each of us a whole grilled fish (freshly caught by his dad, a local fisherman) with mashed potato, salad and even... More

Hostel doesn't look amazing from outside but it's close to the bus station and everything in quepos is within walking distance. Main attraction is the host. Friendly guy, makes a good breakfast at any time you want, and make sure to ask him to make you dinner one night. Great plentiful dinner that will be cheaper than going out. The... More
