There were three shots on our bill that we hadn't had. The reception staff were rude and treated us as if we were lying, and we were told we had to wait to speak to the manager. The reception staff were rude and grumpy throughout. Otherwise such a good hostel, great pool and bar, cheap food and right on the beach. Could be more flexible on changing food order (eg extra of chips, bacon instead of cheese
This hostel is loads of fun. The wifi is pretty terrible but you'll most likely be too busy socialising to care. The hostel has a great resort style set up which makes it really easy to meet people. Relaxed beach vibe during the day which picks up the pace at night. The food is good too... You just might have to ask a few times before it arrives.

Wifi is terrible. Party atmosphere really lacked compared to other Loki's. We ended up partying at other hostels. Stay at Point Hostel instead.
This is a party hostel, don't come here if you want sleep, good set up but some of the staff are a bit 'too cool for school', customer service is not their strong point - especially the Aussie bar manager. Look out for the Argentinian with dreads...he will try
very nice hostel! looks like a hotel. nice pool - good location - hot showers - giant lockers - restaurant - bar - parties - in frnt of the beach - nothing to complain about. keep in mind, it's a very big hostel and it's loki --> my phone got stolen so keep an eye on your belongings alwaays! staff was helpfull trying to look at security video etc
Great hostel, like a Palace. I liked my stay there - mostly because of the pool ;) no seriously it is fun. And actually you will find sleep unless you dont go to bed at 10. After 12-01 it is quiet. Cheers, Once Loki always Loki.

If you're going to Mancora, the only hostel you want to stay at is Loki. The place feels like a resort. It's literally on the beach and the nightlife is brilliant...be careful of the bloodbombs though, they are lethal! I was travelling alone but made friends pretty quickly. If you're after a chilled place, Loki is not the place to stay. I had a great time and would recommend to anyone.
We had a great time just a shame the music was not good.
Lovely setting with treat pool and big bar just set back off the beach. Rooms are spacious with en-suites, ok beds, good lockable storage cupboards :) bfast was basic, food is pretty good but can take nearly an hour to come out, bar is fun and something in each night, but it's not as party party as I thought. Good location in mancora near all shops and tour agencies booking trips and buses :) really good Mexican 2mins away ! Defo a great place to stay
Cool resort vibe. Great times watching the World Cup and partying for the weekend. Being right on the beach is awesome and having a pool is great. Food and drinks are reasonably priced. Theres little reason to leave the hostel during the day.
This is a party hostel but it's possible to chill out and do your own thing if you want. Looks a lot fancier than a £5 a night hostel. Great place to meet people and play drinking games or just chat by the pool. The tuna steak is awesome as well! Breakfast could be more generous though...
If you want a boarding school experience ... If you're a beer pong addict .... If you wanted to go to Ibiza but somehow ended up in Peru ... Well then you'll love it there.
Yes everyone knows this is a party hostel but it really left a lot to be desired(along with the noise all day and night!)The wifi is very bad and the backpacker staff at the bar were appalling-party hostel or not, if you're working somewhere try to put a bit more effort into what you're supposed to be doing! However, if you get the urge to hang around with obnoxious Aussies, rude Israelis and jocks straight from an American teen movie this is the place for you.

Stuff wasn't very friendly. Almost felt like I dared to bother them with checking in. No smile. No hello. Very noisy.good for those who want to party. I left day earlier.
Pros-good food for good prices nice bar great location party atmosphere Cons-it attracts kind of a douchey crowd. You can expect to be woken up at 4am to people having sex in the shower, people barfing, or random people in your room talking loudly. I'm all for partying, but not inconsiderate people and sloppiness
This place is the best place to stay in Mancora, if you like to party and enjoy the company of a lot of other backpackers. The facilities, rooms and location are really good and they give you a great value for your money! Absolutley a great place to stay!
Not sure why Loki went here coz as soon as the sun goes down the locals come out to rob/bash and just hassle any out siders! Heard and seen why to many people get jumped. Not safe no matter what size you are. Loki's venue is unreal tho and great layout. But its not a place i would recommend to put on ya head to list, way to far out of the way. Head directly to Montanita, way more safer, heaps better vibe and better beach. Sorry Loki but not sure why ya went here location is everything!
Second time at the hostel, had a really great time again!
Had the best time at Loki, the location is great being on the beach you can get away from the party atmosphere and chill out.
If you're looking for a party hostel, this is it! Food and drinks were awesome and a perfect location on the beach. Great staff and very clean for a big hostal.
