We really enjoyed our stay here. Mancora (Loki) is a party town so if that's not for you this place is perfect. Little bit of a walk to get up to it but the views are spectacular and the common area is a great place to chill out. Good wifi, nice bathrooms and friendly staff
We loved that this hostel was at the top of the hill - it provided a beautiful view of the town and the ocean! They provide laundry service which is done right at the hostel which was nice. The only thing was that they kept the kitched locked from 12am-8am and if you have an early bus or an early tour you don't have access to your food! But the bungalows were a dream and the perfect setting for a great price!
Nice place to stay. The hostel is on top of a hill and a bit of a walk, but worth the view :)
Enjoyed our stay. Got a little noisy at night but it was their July 28 week of Independence Day celebrations. Very cozy.

Great place to chill out in Mancora situated up on a hill away from, but overlooking the action with an amazing view of the town and the ocean. It's a bit of a steep climb to get there which could be difficult with big bags but they offer free collection from the bus station so this isn't a problem. I could imagine there may be problems with the path in the rain though.
This Hostel was ok.Not one of the best, but also not one of the worst. We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. It's up on a hill, so you have to walk a little Bit. When we arrived nobody was a the reception, like on our hole stay, so we waited.The kitchen and the bathrooms aren't really the cleanest. But the view from the nice accomodation room over the City is awsome. So for that cheap price it's perfect, if you just want to relax and get away from that party in mancora.
Good: Free pickup from bus stop; early checkin & late checkout; great view; tranquility. Bad: No breakfast, no wifi or electricity (not their fault as there was a power cut, but no compensation offered); manager is NEVER around, caretaker hardly speaks Spanish, let alone English. Ugly: Way too far from the beach (200 steep steps simply within the property, in a backstreet); overpriced for what it is; wanted 8$ more for a later checkout (for that you can get a full day dorm right on the beach).
We just loved it! The best place to relax, an amazing view!
Biardiful view over the town. bit of a trek up the hill. not too shabby
A lovely place with the best view in town! The bungalows have all you need and so does the common area. Full kitchen at your disposal. This is not a party place, you can find that down town with the other PartyPackers. So you can have best of both worlds :-) The little climb up the hill is not as bad as it seems at first sight! Highly recommended if you want to chill ;-)
Brilliant ambience&view Really bad experience when we extended our stay.Although the owner told us that our 2 rooms were available for next day, we were told the next day 11am that that we had to give up 1 room (attributed to mix up with HW!).Another guest faced this problem the same day We lost the whole day due to this and ended up running around to book tickets etc But the owner allowed to use one room till evening & allowed the other guest to use the common area so that we could re-plan
This is the hostel you want to stay in Máncora, especially if you just want to relax and lay back. The hostel is on a little hill right above the center (5min walk) and the view is just amazing. Especially if you are travelling as a couple it's very romantic. Further it is clean, wifi works well, good water pressure with warm water, very kind hostal family. Altogether just a super choice! The owner even comes to pick you up late in the evening and gives you a ride to get your bus.
Amazing place to stay, such amazing views and the owners are wicked highly recommended !!
