Just the cleaning can improve a lot, but party is jus what you're expecting to do here.
Good value for money. The beach at Mancora is beautiful and this place is only a minute away. The place wasn't the cleanest but it was still fine. Good if you want to party ~ the bar is busy and the music goes all night. There is a pool for daytime but not as nice as the beach. If you prefer to relax in a cosy environment or can't sleep through noise, don't stay here. Wifi isn't very good.
Party, party, party and that's what you get - and the kind of people you meet. As a backpacker you're away from home for so long and also value the comfy feel of a place. Loki doesn't offer that. Food is good, bar prices are reasonable and staff is nice. I felt safe in there but this being Mancora you'll find lots of people on drugs and people doing drugs in the rooms. However, Loki did kick people out if caught.
This hostel looks like it was actually a resort that they just added more beds to. The pool is amazing. The restaurant was amazing as well. Great bar specials. Rooms were comfy enough. Bathroom in our dorm was pretty gross but definitely not the worst I've seen. But man oh man is it freaking loud in the dorm rooms. Our room backed up directly to a club that blasted music until around 3am. Otherwise, a good place. Would really benefit from a kitchen.
Stay there ONLY if you want to party - every day. If not, you want get a good sleep. It is loud. beds are uncomfortable. bathrooms are dirty. At daytime it is pretty nice though to chill at the pool. Food is cheap too. Staff at the bar is very nice. Staff at the reception is the worst so far - bored, can't give you any informatin, not friendly.
Genuine party hostel. Great place and good value for money. It's kinda like a resort almost.
This place feels like a resort and is right in the centre of Mancora and walks out onto the beach. We booked an 8 bed dorm on the web site but they put us in a 10 bed, which was OK since they emailed about it first. The hostel would be improved with a kitchen for guest use but is otherwise a great place! I can see how you might end up here for a week.
Resort feel for this hostel which is great for location, obviously a party hostel so dont expect a good nights sleep unless you have earplugs..water shortages are common in the town as not much rain in the area. Menu is ok but could do with more variety.. Loki cusco has the best menu out of all of them!!. Good surf at the beach which is 2 min out back of hostel. Beware of dead animals at the top end of beach. Not nice to see (trawlers net waste i feel ) :(
Great place to stay however it is certainly not a place to get a good nights sleep… This is a party hostel but a very nice one at that.
So this the place to stay in Mancora for a good time!. Loki is located bang in the centre of town, on the beach. Its a lot of fun with events every night. (Mostly) great staff, spacious dorms, not too noisy, slow wifi (sometimes it wasn't working at all). But great atmosphere and a lot of fun for a few days. Would stay here again! The best value by far. The place is like a resort more than a hostel
Only come to this hostel if you wish to party every night until atleast 2am! the noise makes it impossible to sleep before that time, but perfect if you want to party every day :))) the rest is excellent
If you want a relaxing time, don't stay here. If you want to party, this place is amazing. Fantastic pool and bar area, surprisingly excellent food, relatively expensive alcohol. Reception manager is very helpful.
Must be the best hostel South America. Absolutely amazing. Only downside is that the bar is expensive, so be careful. As for Mancora, it an be quite rough at night so don't walk around alone.
Great party hostel. Very noisy in the rooms closest to the beach and clubs. Spotty wifi. Hot showers. The place to stay in Mancora.
Good party hostel right on the beach. I'd recommend staying here for a couple of nights whilst in Mancora especially in low season because everywhere else in town is deserted. The hostel looks like a holiday resort and there's always something going on in the bar. Overall pretty much what you'd expect from a Loki.
Great staff works here. Specially people that does amazing job behind the scene !! Really appreciate the help that all people have given to me while I broke my foot because of an outdoor sport
I loved loki del mar! It's set up like a resort, the pool is great, the bar staff fun and there's tons of activities and stuff to do. Music is loud, but is the same almost everywhere in town- go if you want a party! You kind of end up spending quite some money for food (which is great, btw- get the tuna salad) and drinks.
Great location, close to the beach and restaurants etc, and has an awesome pool. Food and drinks are tasty and reasonably priced. Bar is very loud until 2am so if you are not a party person I wouldn't stay here!
