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


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.


Party hostel, some good staff but also some rude staff. WiFi only works at the bar. You go here for the party.


Nice hostel, right on the beach. No kitchen. Bar staff and food was really slow. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to solo travellers as it was full of groups.


On paper, this hostel has it all. Personally for me, there are too many 18-25s drunk in the pool, wailing and doing body shots all over the place. Don't get me wrong; The hostel is beautiful,the food is great and the place is very well run with great customer service. Just know what you're after: if it's a wild, Frat Party/ British Union night thing, then this is the place for you... if it's more of a chill on the beach kind of affair, head down to Misfit. Loki is LOCO and that's the fact.


Best place in mancora by a mile. If you can stay here. Great location, you really don't need to leave the hostel except if u want to surf or shop on strip. Only downside is that the food service isn't quick. Takes about 45 mins


Good: restaurant food is great, bar area is fun, pool is semi clean, close to beach. Bad: All rooms face the bar


A true party hostel, it is more like a resort. There is really no need to leave the actual hostel as the sight has everything. One potential issue is that some of the rooms face the beach where empty bars play very loud music until the early hours.


Best hostel ive stayed at so far. All the staff are amazing. Great decision staying here. Dont go to relax.
