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 and peaceful. It does not look like a party hostel with hordes of drunk and rowdy backpackers.
The small pool surrounded by palm and banana trees was very nice and provided a much needed refreshment.
The rooms itself are very small. Just bunk beds, two shelves and a bedsite table. Navigating through all the luggage was bit challenging, but we spent most of the time on the beach, in the town or elsewhere. The night was very hot and even the ceiling fan had a tough time. The sleep wasn't exactly pleasant, but not unbearable. However WMF also offers more expensive private rooms with A/C.
Common bathrooms were clean and functional. The communal kitchen was very well equipped and offered a massive breakfast for only $3. Above the kitchen area was a large patio with sofas and TV.
Over all - our stay at WMF was very pleasant and well worth the money. Would recommend it to friends staying in Quepos and Manuel Antonio area.
