anagramme We stayed overnight and we choose it because it is very close to the airport. The taxi is only 10$. The owner hs reserved us a very warm welcome. We liked the place though our room (#10) was next to the highway (at the back of the property) and it was very noisy during the night. We could't kept the window open and it was a llittle bit hot. Furthurmore, we had to kill a lot of ants in the room. But the rest was very clean. The restaurant was good and we spend a few times in the lounge just relaxing and having a beer, which was fun. The wife of the owner is also a massotherapist so you can enjoy a good massage while waiting for dinner.
fesign Great hostel for great value and most importantly very secure place. The employees here are very friendly and helpful, the best place to spend your last day before you fly back, since it's really close to the airport and they provide a free shuttle service!

ayarella Excellent hostel to stay either on your way into Costa Rica or on your way out. Not only is it in a lovely town convenient to the airport (SJO), Grecia, but it is close to many attractions! The beautiful forest Bosque de Los Ninos is a bus ride a away, as are Los Chorros (waterfalls you can swim at!), and Volcan Poas (which you can hike to from Bosque) Grecia itself is lovely, with a beautiful central park to sit and relax in. There are many stores around for all sorts of shopping as well as a large mall with a cinema! Mangifera hostel is run by a very friendly property owner, who is gracious, accommodating, and engaging. The property is clean, bright and pleasant, with full use of kitchen facilities! The internet connection works great (wifi) and is the fastest I experienced while in Costa Rica. I like the upstairs patio overlooking the park where you can sit and relax. The living room upstairs is a nice lounge with a TV. Additionally, they are constructing a gorgeous setup in the backyard which I can't wait to see when I return! The water is hot and towels are provided. My only suggestion would be to get a new shower head to disburse the water more evenly :) Breakfast is delicious comida tipica and the coffee is good! :) Buses run from Grecia to the airport. This would be a much more pleasant base than in San Jose, which is quite a zoo and is actually further from the airport. Pura Vida!

sancazezli THE MAIN PROBLEM WE HAD WAS THAT EVEN THOUGH WE HAD RESERVATION AND PAID DEPOSIT ONLINE WHEN WE GOT TO HOTEL LATE AT NIGHT THEY WERE FULL SO WE HAD TO START LOOKING FOR ANOTHER HOTEL. WE CAME BACK NEXT DAY AND YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR - CHEAP HOTEL SO YOU CANNOT EXPECT MUCH, BUT FOR THE MONEY IT WAS OK. HELPFUL STAFF.
