We were only there for one night, and it was New Year's Day. There was a very big celebration with a band in the park just across the road from our window, and it was very noisy. However, I enjoyed the band and celebration, and got to walk around at night to stores and restaurants by myself (senior lady) that... More

It was a nice little hostel, with a great location in Grecia (note it is right across the street from the church). The location makes it a little more difficult to get to and from Volcan Poas, as when taking the public bus we had to pass through Alejuela. ( Grecia is a FAR nicer place to stay than Alejuela,...

It is a clean and beautiful hotel with a nice garden but it can be noisy especially if the room is on the street side and the people working there are not really helphul. Our room did not have any key.

Nice and clean. Right in town across from the steel church. Don't forget to go to the Marcado ( open market) 2 blocks from the Hostel. You can buy fresh fruit and other food for your meals or eat right there, which is what we did. Nice that you have your own bathroom and provided towels. Breakfast of eggs, fresh... More

Grecia is one of the nicest cities in Costa Rica; clean, safe, good weather, beautiful, and VERY nice people. Hostel Mangifera is ideally located in the center of town - Right now I am sitting on the balcony, overlooking the town plaza and famous church. The owner Marcos is 100% the man, I don't go out buying bottles of tequila... More
