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.

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!
