Had read comments about the staff being unfriendly but didnt want to believe it. Half were nice, the other half were a bit rude. The pool is nice but could be cleaned a bit more. The breakfast was too basic- shouldnt really be offered as is tiny piece of bread/butter/jam and tea/coffee. But despite these comments, the rooms are good. The beds are very comfortable and its location (proximity to beach and town) is perfect.
Location was great, but it wasn't the most friendly crowd. The employees were not very helpful when it came to traveling. The bar staff also wasn't very friendly but he rooms were very clean and nice, great location.

This hostel was decent, but lacking in atmosphere at the time I stayed there. However, there is a pool and a bar which is nice. Beds are decent and there are lockers for important items. No kitchen, but I think that is the standard around here. Great location!
A great place to chill during the day and have fun during the night. It didn't get too crazy during the night which I liked because if you're trying to get some shut eye it's a lot easier!
perfect hostel in an amazing town. go swim with the turtles you won't regret it
Great location, nice pool and bar. Fun activities. Staff not overly friendly but everything else was great. Extended our stay an extra night and would stay again.
a great hostel, very fun, our only problem was the bar staff, but beside that the hostel was very enjoyable.
Good place to stay when you're in Mancora. Lockers are big enough for your whole backpack. Breakfast is the standard bread and jam. The staff play the music pretty loud until late at night. Still would recommend this when you're in Mancora. The staff with the big bust is super nice!
+: Stylish, good Wifi, big lockers, nice pool -: No guest kitchen, overpriced, not really warm water You have to pay a penalty if you are longer than 60 days in Peru yet Ridiculous: You get a ticket for breakfast so no early bird newcomer "steals" a breakfast - feels not very inviting
A fine hostel, with all the facility you need. There is only 2 bad things: First the bar, that is locat in the biggest social area, plays LOUD pop music all day. With the results that no one in the hostel wants to use the area great. I tried to ask the staff to change music to some more chilling, but that only last for 1 hour. The second bad thing is the bar in the evening is crowded with almost only local people. And the DJ only plays Spanish music.
Hostel itself is great but reception staff (manager) and policies are not. Arrived at 10am and didn't receive a hello/welcome. No information was offered about Mancora, activities or places to eat/drink. Requested bottom bunk as I was feeling ill and reception told me that would be no problem but at checkin (2pm) this was forgotten and there was only a top bunk available. Informed I could change following day when people checked out. Following day I was told there was a fee to change beds.
Very good hostel! Staff is very friendly and helpful with information. The rooms are a bit too hot which makes sleeping less comfortable. The bar is nice and the parties are cool! Location is perfect, 2 minutes away from the beach and the city centre. Not dangerous around at night. Food in the restaurant is good as well. Really recommend it
Hostel is chill & quiet Sun-Wed. Thurs - Sat it is more full, & there is loud music & parties. It's lively & fun, but too loud to sleep on those nights if you don't want to participate. Local & other travels come to the parties. Locker boxes under beds are nice & big. Rooms & bathrooms cleaned daily. Showers are warm at best, but its so hot there you don't care. 8 person dorm was very hot - they should put in a second fan. WiFi would go out but usually right back. Bfast was bread & juice only.
We booked 2 nights and ended up staying 2 weeks. We got a private room which was definitely the way to go. It gets hot at night but that is just mancora. The staff was really helpful and nice, and the bar/pool was a fun place to hang out. The wifi is solid, and the location is right where you want to be.
Pro's: good location, good bar and pool area, lots of tables and chairs and a few sun beds, cheap, some good parties. Con's: staff are Really quite rude apart from the two young girls there, breakfast is just bread jam and butter, cold coffee and juice thats made in a huge plastic bucket :/ not very appetising. The crazy pitbull dog! Witnessed it badly attacking the cat one day. Itm's probably too dangerous to have at a hostel around people :/
Relaxed atmosphere, great bar area (the room next to it still gets a decent amount of noise until it closes), breakfast is very very little per person, expect to stock up. Restaurant was closed most of the times during our stay.
I booked 1night ended up staying a week! They have nice breakfast, cool pool(although it was closed every night),the staff is nice and helpfull, dorms are big and they clean them and the other facilities every day all day long! they have different topic for partys and the rooms are far enough so you'll able to sleep if you don't feel like party.. I would expect a kitchen to atleast have the possibility to cook but they do have a resturant in the hostel.great atmosphere. overall had great time!
Nice facilities and a good party atmosphere. Loud at night so not a place for people looking to get a lot of sleep. Seems to have a lot more Spanish speaking travelers and fewer English speakers. We stayed for 4 nights and would probably stay again.
