You can use the second argument of FileNameSetter[] to specify that you 
are looking for directories only.

     FileNameSetter[Dynamic[f], "Directory"]


The online documentation reads (under the section "MORE INFORMATION"),

In FileNameSetter[name,"spec"]possible specifications of dialogs to use are:

     "Open"         file opening dialog (default)
     "OpenList"     multiple file opening dialog
     "Save"         file saving dialog
     "Directory"    directory picking dialog
