I really didn't like it here. And it's nothing to do with the hostel itself. It's impressive for a hostel, more like a resort, with pool, bar, gardens and hammocks, etc. they guard the main door fiercely but fail to realise nobody guards the beach entrance, so it seems a little pointless. But I don't like it. It's too much. Everyone is wasted constantly, which is fine for a night, but longer? No. It's the people here that I would tend to avoid.
You wont sleep ... Rooms are warm and fan doesnt cut it ... They need aircon but dont have it .. Pool close way too early !!! At 6h30
Internet (wifi) was not working well, even in the areas it should have too.
I was disappointed with the town Mancora and felt there wasn't much on offer than partying at the Loki. Although the hostel is impressive, the atmosphere let the place down. And the parties were very totally disorganised with bad music choices all day and all night. The food was pretty poor too.
Ace place to meet people, particularly if you are travelling alone. Nice pool and bar area, quality location right next to the beach. Great stay.
Awesome party hostel!! Don't expect to have a quiet night in.
This is an amazing hostel! You likely won't leave much... right on the beach, great pool, bar, spacious airy rooms with balconies. Actually delicious food, and really helpful friendly staff. Big party hostel, but not much to do in Mancora besides party or hang on the beach. We loved it here!
I've selected poor for atmosphere reason being it wasn't my kind of atmosphere... For most young people this place is 100% on atmosphere, but I'm not 18 on my gap year and it just didn't work for me sorry... Felt like a kids holiday camp...
Looking for one hell of a party, stay here. Just remember, Lokis attract a certain backpacker so youve been warned!
Well located near the beach and on the main street, really nice pool and bar area, great atmosphere. There isn't a whole lot to do in Mancora, but the guests Loki attracts seem to be quite friendly, I had a lot of fun in this hostel. Given that Mancora has such a poor reputation for tourist-related crime, it was reassuring that the hostel took security seriously, both at the gate and within the grounds.
Stay here if you want to party. Do not expect any early nights because the beats will be pumping all night very load. I loved it here! A lot of activities and the Xmas diner was truely amazing!
Great place to stay if you want to party. More like a mini resort than a hostel. Good party scene and activities. Definately a place to check out...
The party hostal! If you are looking for peace this is not your place. Party everyday. Really good atmosphere, staff and facilities.
Haven't stayed anywhere as good in South America. Location and facilities are amazing, is not a hostel is a hotel beach resort at hostel prices. Food is exquisite and affordable. Overall amazing place in an amazing town. BEAUTIFUL!,,
if you like partying it's the best place to stay! lot of nice people, rooms are spaceous and nice. every room has a balcony. basic/little breakfast is included, it's close to the beach, restaurants & shops. food in the hostel is great even if it is a little bit expensive. public computers are not the newest one.. during the day (and at night as well) they offer things to do such as Yoga, Olymic games, volleyball, etc. A surf school belongs almost to the hostel, where you can rent cheap equipmemt
Just stayed one afternoon before my bus was leaving. This is an absolute partyhostel. You know what you get booking Loki. For anything else I would recommend looking for something else.
Self contained backpacker-on-the-sea superhostel. You don't have to leave the compond at all - and people literally don't. Great facilities and good food mean its a nice place to wait out the inevitable hangover. Can seem like Mancora is the Loki- which who knows, maybe its not?
Best hostel I have ever stayed so far.swimming pool is fantastic.
