I liked the hostel, but one thing that was really annoying was the lack of outlets in the room. There were 8 beds, with 6 lockers in the walls, all of which had an outlet inside. However, there are 2 beds without outlets and even if someone is nice enough to let you use theirs, if they are gone. out of luck. The beach is nice, the pool is too, overall recommended although the breakfast (instant coffee) could definitely be upgraded to at least include toast.


Don't expect to sleep as there is music EVERY night. This is a a party hostel for sure, and the slushee's will get you drunk very fast. Don't expect good beds and clean rooms. if you come here, you are coming to party at night, eat a ceviche when you wake up hung over and MAYBE go for a swim in the ocean and then party again, or skip the ocean and just drink on the hammocks or sit by the pool. Had an amazing time but by the fourth night I had enough and moved on. Would come back ;)


Very good hostel located right on the beach! The staff were very helpful and it was very secure with a guard on the door at all times. If you like to party this is the place to be, and the pool helps cure the hangover on the hot sunny days.


3 incidents in 2 nights while I was there where guys went into dorms and jumped into the beds of women they didn't know aggressively pushing inappropriately(hands down pants before the women woke up) WOULD NOT RECOMMEND FOR ANY WOMEN TO STAY HERE,ESPECIALLY SOLO.It's a party hostel, fairly well setup to get people as drunk as possible spending as much money as possible. Dangerously so if you're not able to handle South American guy aggression. Check your bills, we were overcharged an extra night


I was asked to leave the hostel at 2 am after being accused of breaking one of the hostel rules. Fine so be it. However one of the managers of the place was the most unpleasant and rude person I have ever encountered, berating me with insults. My favorite was when she said "I hope you get raped and robbed" as I left the premises. While I had enjoyed my stay up to this point, I would strongly advise anyone to avoid staying here so long as this woman is still working there.


Party hostel. Fun for a few days.


Loki has a great atmosphere, pool, beachfront access, hammocks, bar, fun staff, and much more. It's a big party at night - great for travelers who like party hostels, but it's also easy to spend your entire day and night at Loki without branching out to see the rest of Mancora.


everything was perfect. good atmosphere for partying and clean rooms to sleep in. lacked a kitchen area.


As far as party hostels go, this was like a well oiled machine. Rooms were great (sockets in the lockers was great), staff even though volunteers really worked hard to keep everyone happy and the place clean, fun events at night. Not too much to do in Mancorra but that doesn't really matter when you stay at Loki


Great place to meet other backpackers as lots of daily games and activities within the hostel, plus an awesome pool to chill around and really nice food. The manager Jody was also really helpful helping me with questions about the next stage of my travels.


Laze by the pool all day everyday, only a 30second walk to the beach if you do manage to leave the hostel! This is certainly a party hostel and a great place to meet people from all over the world!




A cut above. Good work Loki.


its Loki, you probably know what you're getting already. This one is a bit different to the others though, more of a holiday resort feel. Pools great, bars great, foods great. beds are a little more basic than usual, but lets be honest you're not staying at Loki for the beds. Best and liveliest hostel in Mancora by far.


A fun party hostel close to the beach. The noise is a little loud into the night but was as expected. The pool and quick access to the beach was nice.


Staying at Loki was a great experience. You can feel a good vibe since the moment you arrive. If you want some days of relaxing time and your plan is just chilling in a nice atmosphere, then Loki is what you're looking for.


Awesome place with choice staff. Go for a party and smash some blood bombs for NZ


Enjoyable stay, lovely pool. The lockers were big enough to put all your bags into which was great and you could also charge your phone/camera inside the lockers. The only issue was that they let outside people into the bar but there is no security between the bar and the rooms. It's a party hostel so loud noise is a given.


Fun hostel, great location close to the beach. It's beautiful, with a pool and hammocks that you can relax in during the day. Definitely a party spot, so don't plan on getting much sleep before the bar closes (about 1am). The bathrooms could be cleaner, and the sheets don't fit the bed very well, but the showers are hot and have good water pressure. Great place to meet other people who are traveling, everyone is very friendly. Don't bring large bills, getting change is hard.
