We stayed at the wide frog during corona times. Therefore, we were the only guests. We really enjoyed our time here. The owner was very friendly and helpful, the place is beautiful (everything open space but still enough roofs, so it’s dry when it rains), well equipped kitchen, relaxed common areas, nice pool! (I also enjoyed the little things like sockets in the lockers.)
This hostel has a good central location in Quepos near the bus station and a short walking distance to the beach and any of the main streets. The staff are excellent. Stephanie was so helpful in getting us a room and helping with booking tours and instructing is on bussing. The pool is a nice touch as well but unfortunately closes at 10pm exactly. Nice relaxing atmosphere at this hostel. I would recommend an A/C room as the ones with fans are extremely hot. My only complaint is that the amenities are not too nice and not the cleanest and beds are not the greatest. Our private room only had one plug in for charging electronics and with two of us with camera equipment it made for a challenge. But overall a nice hostel.
Ok, I know there are other great hostels, but this was wonderful ❤️ It’s got a resort vibe at a hostel price. I loved it here! The staff is all warm, kind, and friendly. There is a breakfast, and coffee is on all day. You can cook your meals in the kitchen, or order from the restaurant that is attached. The walk around Quepos is very easy, and WMF is close to everything you might want, including cafes, restaurants, the waterfront sea wall for watching sunsets, and the bus station. The pool area is great for relaxing and cooling off. We had a private room with a fan, but it might have been worth booking one with air. I underestimated the heat and humidity there. I look forward to returning to WMF in the future. As an aside, do not walk into a Quepos BAC bank as a deaf person (I am) asking to exchange currency with half assed tourist spanish like I did. The armed security guard will actually approach you like you’re some kind of UK football hooligan. 😆…
I was welcomed in a very friendly and positive manner by Lilly. Forgot my luggage by being extremely tired and she kept it safe for several hours. Big thanks! I learned a lot from the local culture and extended my stay 2 times. The staff cooked even one time for me which was pretty sweet. Theres a nice restaurant providing cheap and delicious foods/drinks right at the dining area. Clean place and super friendly staff. Nice location and atmosphere. I am coming back!
Wide mouth frog is a well run hostel with good security. Breakfast was fruit with a choice of toast or cornflakes which can be supplemented by the next door cafe. My double room had fan and air conditioner, a space for hanging my clothes as well as private bathroom with hot shower. The shower was difficult to regulate. Everything was clean and comfortable. The location is very central 300 from the promenade, close to many shops and cafes and 200 metres from Quepos bus station . The hostel also has a small pool and sun loungers.
