Perfectly located with a beautiful garden to relax in, and a lovely homey feel, this hostel was the perfect first stop after flying into SJO (and wanting to avoid San Jose). Marco and his family were lovely, Marco came and picked me up from the airport, was very helpful about how to get around, where things were etc. Even took... More

A great alternative to staying at lesser-quality places that are a little closer to the airport. Marco was patiently helpful with complex travel routing, knowledgeable and really cordial. Just a real personable guy. The property is beautiful and the walls are filled with murals from local artists that blew my mind. Great hangout area in the open courtyard out back.... More

The hostel is located right off the main park. It's a perfect location. The host was very nice and friendly. The garden was well-cared for and relaxing. We woke up to church bells and birds singing. There are only two parking spots in their driveway and the only way to get in is through a narrow gate. We had a... More

Stood at the Mangífera Hostel for 3 weeks! The plan was to stay for 3 days but I feel in love with Grecia and the amazing people! The hostel is in the absolute best location possible! The place was always clean thanks to the amazing ladies who clean the place. Hans & Oscar who run the hostel on a day... More

Staying at the Mangifera was a wonderful experience. Its so cute with a wonderful relaxing garden area. The balcony over looks the town square with a church and park. My mother and I stayed only one night but if we were staying in Grecia longer I wouldnt want to go anywhere else but the Mangifera Hostel. The owner was very... More

If you go to Grecia stay in Mangifera Hostel! Marcus (the host) is very nice and helpful. Clean and nice rooms. This Hostel has dorm and normal rooms with flat-screen TV's. The Wifi connection is really good and the garden outside of the hotel is lovely.

I purposefully selected Hostel Mangifera for my second stay in Grecia because it is so conveniently located to the businesses where I needed to shop for my new home in Grecia. I was disappointed in the room which was toward the back and not up dated like the one I stayed in facing the street and the church. I did... More

Loved the location, in the middle of the town. Room was OK, took the one with the onsuite bath. Was much cheaper than what my travelling company had offered. There is a very lovely church in the square.

My two-day stay while looking for a house was very convenient and cheap ( I was on a limited budget!) The breakfast was delicious and custom-prepared! The room was clean and somewhat comfortable. The central location was helpful, although a little bit noisy at night.

My favourite hostel after travelling 4 1/2 months through Central/South America. Location is perfect - right in the city centre and close to shopping and buses. Great layout with varied rooms, extra bathrooms, wifi, bar, outdoor area, kitchen, laundry - everything a hostel needs. The staff were very helpful, especially Marco who is a lot of fun! Will definitely be... More
