If you're looking to stay in Quepos on a budget, then I'd recommend this hostel. My biggest issue with the hostel was actually finding it, though that was my fault entirely. The hostel is fairy small,I was staying in an 8 bed dorm. The room was big enough for the 8 beds,I didn't have any issue feeling cramped or anything... More

I only spent one night at Central Backpackers but would stay there again. What made it extra special was the dedicated service of Mauricio to ensure my stay there was extra comfortable. The rooms are very adequate and clean. The location is noisy during the day because it is on the bus route to Manuel Antonio but as the day... More

Stayed at Central Backpackers for almost a week and would have stayed longer. Great location close to town center and on the road and bus route to Manuel Antonio NP. The beds were comfortable, the rooms and bathroom clean and the prices cheap. Breakfast and dinner were available at very cheap prices and was the best food we had in... More

The owners are clearly very friendly. Unfortunately that is the only thing positive I can find. The private was damp, extremely loud (very busy road in front +some door that has a big opening beneath), toilet problems, doors that didn't work (sometimes we couldn'tclose it, other times we couldn't open it), rooms that would get dirty from the ceiling, no...

This hostel is safe and family oriented. The manager was pleasant, respectful, professional, accommodating and an excellent cook. He helped us with whatever it was we needed be it laundry, a good place to eat, or secret local spots to visit. We would definitely go back again. This hostel is close to grocery stores, cafes, and bars. If you need... More
