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.
This was an AMAZING hostel! It is more like a resort!! It is a party hostel, I had no problems sleeping but if you aren't into this kind of thing maybe go somewhere else. The food is delicious and really well priced for mancora. Staff are friendly and make sure you have a good time. The pool=awesome. Really easy to meet people and always something going on. Only problem was we had to leave!
Loki is known as the party hostel. I wasnt particularly looking for that and so at times it felt a little noisy and a bit too focussed on drinking. That said, I felt safe and I got to meet people which was what I was after. The top bunks are ridiculously high but apart from that the facilities are amazing. Having a pool is a total bonus. The staff were also really friendly and helpful.
This is the best hostel in Mancora to meet people and have a great time. Dorms are crammed with a small bathroom. Overall I would recommend Loki to anyone, as long as you like to party!
Feels likeyou are in a big hotel , swimming pool , ocean is just next to you , have to mention very good food with local prices , that's why it's a cool place to chill out and have fun at the same time
The stay in Loki was really good, the rooms were cleaned every day and there were special bar and food offers! The bar atmosphere is good and the staff is friendly. Only the internet was very slow - when it worked - and didn't reach to all the dorms.

horrible wifi, bad staff, is a good resort but i can't recommend it
This hostel has ruined me for other hostels. The absolute best place I have ever stayed in my life and I have travelled all over the world. No other place can compare. I don't want to leave!! Oh, but you won't sleep here. But that's cool. Just take a nap by the pool or in the hammocks!
This is like a beach vacation resort for backpackers. Incredible value. A haven for 20 somethings who want to party and enjoy the beach. The hostel is huge, has a great staff (many are fellow travelers volunteering), and has a wonderful pool. The parties are pretty decent and lots of people seemed to be getting lucky haha. Beach is right next to it. Hot showers, not so good wifi but functional. better if you are close to the reception
got what we expected from loki: nice people, awesome parties. the location is great, you don't even have to leave the hostel to get to the beach. the food you can get at the bar is really nice as well. definitely worth staying there!
What a great place to finish off my 3 month trip. Great place to party or relax. It is a party hostel, but its so nice with the pool and beach. Looks more like a resort.
Hands down the best hostel we have ever stayed at! We had absolutely sensational week here and couldnt recommend it any higher. Just want to say thanks to all the staff and owner Dre we had a blast from the Irish lads!
This place is a dream , you get alot for a low price. Location is great , staff is great , not expensive bar , very social place full with people especially on weekend so there's always what to do inside the hostel perimiter. I planned 3 nights and stayed 8. Perfect!
I was going to original stay 3 nights, I ended up staying 10 nights. There is activities on every afternoon and night. I wouldnt even bother looking for another hostel in Mancora. This is the place to stay. Rooms are good, food is excellent, staff are awesome. This is without a doubt the best hostel I have ever stayed at and I dont say that lightly.
This is the place if you want to be social and drink. The hostel is more resort like with a huge bar/eating area, plenty of hammocks and a pool with lots of lounge chairs. Volleyball set up at the entrance and within the pool, lots of games: ping pong, pool, 5 ft connect 4, giant jenga, darts. Direct access to the beach. Can get noisy at night as bar closes at 2 and there are events every night (karaoke, drinking games, masquerade ball). Bunk beds are lofted so there is a lot of space.
Great place to stay. 6 bed dorms are super comfy, hot water all the time too. Staff were helpful and ever attentive. Bar was always hopping, good menu a bit sparse in comparison to Loki La Paz. You can chill out if you want even though its a party hostel. Immaturity of some of the guests did get to me at some stages so maybe not for everyone who wants to drink drink drink drink each and every day. An observation, not a criticism.
