This place efficiently ticks all the boxes you want in a top class hostel. It's clean, modern and organised. It has helpful bilingual staff and alot of general travel information on the walls of common areas. The facilities are as good as any hostel I've ever stayed: TV room with choice of DVD's - Internet room with a couple of...

They take booking direct via email or phone. They are quite busy and popular being one of the cheapest in town. There is a pool open from 7-10. Free wi-fi. Free coffee and computers to use. Very centrally located near a bus station, supermarket and some good eateries.

A great common area but very small single rooms but comfortable. If you want air conditioning in a private room be prepared to hand over big dollars. Great kitchen area but lacking in sufficient cutlery if a number of people all eating at same time. Pool very clean with great deck area. Close to bus station and supermarkets easy short...

I spent a wonderful week here. The staff is very, very friendly, and always willing to help. They help to find and organize a tour, you will be picked right there. The patio has a quite big pool, surrounded by tropical plants, a very nice place to hang out and relax. You can play chess on a table with a...

This friendly hostel provides a little more luxury than your normal backpackers. The place has a swimming pool with a chill out lounge area and sun tanning beds. Hammocks and cosy couches and bean bag seats complete the hang out area. Staff are friendly and helpful, and always there when you need them.

Really liked this place. It's cared for. All the staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are very small with a big window reminiscent of Amsterdam's red light district, which could be off putting for some but they are very clean and have a fan. The rooms surround a well kept garden area and swimming pool that gets...

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...
