Backpackers has lovely grounds at the top of the hill in Manuel Antonio and is behind and under Comida Tipica where you can enjoy well-priced Costa Rican food.
The staff is friendly and responsive.
They have a very big, open shared kitchen and common areas with couches and hammocks, WiFi as well as a couple computers with internet to share, a swimming pool, and a beautiful view overlooking the jungle canopy and wildlife.
They have shared dorms and some private rooms all at hostel prices. Don't think you have to stay down in Quepos if you are on a budget -- you can still enjoy the amenities of Manuel Antonio. This is about midway between Quepos and the beach/national park and has bus stops going in both directions within a half block. Super Joseth, the local grocery and liquor store, is one block toward the beach. Very convenient location.
If you are arriving on the bus from San Jose, do not get off in Quepos. Tell the driver to stop across from the soccer field (por favor parada al frente del campo de fútbol) and you will be there. To take the bus back to San Jose, buy your ticket in advance at the Quepos bus station then be ready holding your ticket out when the bus approaches and the driver will stop and pick you up.
It's a popular place and you can make lots of new friends from around the world.
