The hostel still needs more work but Mauricio is an authentic Rico and excellent person that can be very helpful


Owner is a great person, doing his best to make you feel like home! It is close to main bus station and bus for Manuel Antonio Park stops next to the hostel.


I enjoyed WMF tremendously. The staff was super helpful and kind, the breakfasts were great, and I made some lasting friendships in my dorm! I can't wIt to go back! Shiloh Los Angeles CA. USA

The owner was very friendly and kind. The dinner he made was only 4 dollars and was excellent. There was no AC, just fans, but for the price and one night, it was worth it. The location was very convienient with a 5-10 minute walk into town and a bus stop close by to get to Manuel Antonio.


there are photos of beaches. no beaches for miles. on an isolated road away from any restaurants or wifi. 8 beds in a small room with no window or ventilation. cheap. yes. worth it. no.

Hot breakfast included! The facilites are a normal dormatory and rooms, not a tent as stated in the hostelworld description. The owner couldn't be nicer or more accomodating. I will return on my next trip through.


This place is pretty much a dump, which would be okay except that it's kind of expensive for a dump. The hotel is in shabby condition: the bed was uncomfortable, no hot water, room was dingy and dark and smelled of mildew. Breakfast was included, and it was a decent basic breakfast. Can't really think of anything else positive to say.

Very friendly and helpful staff,


The hostel was nice but i when there was a mistake with my reservation and the manager give me another room and i had to to pay more, but the manager was nice and we made a deal with the price. it looks like it was a mistake from hostelwold, no from the hostel, after that all was fine, it was clean, good staff, and close to the airport.
