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

We didn't know of any accomadation in the area and the GPS said there was the Mangifera Hostel in Grecia. What a find! Really clean, well maintained hostel! Centrally located across from the main church and square. Great price for a double room, $38, which included breakfast! Beautiful garden, seating area in the back garden which is nice and quiet....

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
