The Wide Mouth Frog is a decent hostel. It meets all the basic requirements for a hostel. They have nice hammocks hanging around the hostel, decent wifi (only in the common area) and helpfu, friendly staff. The rooms are boiling hot and filled with mosquito's, but then again, it is Costa Rica. However, there is not that much to do... More

A very well kept hostel with a superbly well equipped kitchen and friendly staff. It had a quiet atmosphere and the room was unspectacular but very clean. The shared bathroom was big and with the hot weather the cold showers weren't a problem. The swimming pool was a huge bonus too! One of the best value for money hostels we... More

This is a lovely hostel with a great pool and nice gardens. Room was clean and staff were very friendly. Quepos itself is not so great. Very busy, lots of traffic and good restaurant options are limited. The only reason to be here is to visit Manuel Antonio park so arrive early, visit the park, stay the night at WMF... More

The staff in this hostel were really nice and extremely helpful - e.g. with activities to do in the area, transport information & looking after our bags for us after we had checked out. Our dorm was large and there were several lockers with sockets in each one which was great for leaving our phones etc when we were going... More

Best backpackers we have stayed in by far. They have thought of everything. Huge kitchen with everything that you need, although we didn't use it because the restaurant on site is cheap and delicious and not worth cooking. We slept in a spotless dorm with power plugs in our locker so we could charge our devices securely. The receptionists are... More

Arrived after a long day of travelling and got a room with private bathroom and aircon for $60. The woman on reception was pleasant and said there was wifi everywhere but not in the rooms. I couldnt get wifi anywhere other than sitting outside the reception. The bathroom was like an oven and mosquitos and bugs coming in through the... More

The hostel has a good location near the busstation and supermarkets. Also easy to go to Manuel Antonio. The receptionist Jenny was really helpful with bus schedules and other travel tips. She is the best! The pool was nice and the rooms okay. When it is hot, please book a room with AC. We did not do that and that... More
